Social experience is very good via communal kitchens per floor and common room and lounge. Kitchen facilities are enough but can get dirty occasionally. They do get cleaned as do rooms. Would recommend for social and comfort but beware odd individual

Great location, large rooms, and tons of social activities. The fact that students from many different countries live here makes it a really nice and diverse place to live as well.

Pros: - 5 mins walk to class - Good facilities (common room, gym nearby) Cons: - Kitchen will be wrecked almost every night due to pre-drinking. - Expensive if in single room - Room is not that large

Ive been in halls for 4 years both as a fresher and as a hall senior following this. The community formed in halls definitely adds to the experience since you can chill with your new friends and explore places together. I have made some friends for life

Ive been in halls and a hall senior for 4 years in total and I've never been bored in halls. The community of friends you form and the proximity to campus really adds to the university experience. I've made some friends for life.

I absolutely love the location of South Kensington. It is very central the city of London and very close to some fantastic interactions. My lecture hall is a mere 5 minute walk from my room which is very useful for early morning lectures and not having to wake up really early. The social life is absolutely amazing with so many societys, so many that are so large and very fun to attend events of. I’ve especially enjoyed taking part in East Meets West. The common room in Southside is nice but it isn’t open after 11 which is a common usage time for many students.

Honestly what makes a hall good it’s in great measure the people you leave with, which is just luck. It is true though that south side is very convenient for being so near to uni and it’s shared kitchen is quite good. Rooms are ok but they’re a little bit better I’d say in other halls but there’s not much difference tbh.

Very near to the university which is great. Overall furniture is new. Rent is quite pricey compared to other uni halls but you get what you paid for.

Great atmosphere and hall activities. Friendly hall seniors and large corridors enabled more socialising and opportunities to make friends. Need greater emphasis on keeping kitchens clean.

It's super close to campus (5-min walk only!). Facilities are all very new and modern. We also got access to the Wilson Lounge. People are friendly but it's a bit expensive.

The location is fantastic! It is just across the road to Imperial College London entrance and so it is very convenient for me to go to university. Additionally, it is close to Hyde Park, and the South Kensington Station and so easy to travel. Also, the building is very new and modern and so the quality is at a very high standard.
