Really modern and nice facilities and cheap considering London prices. The twin rooms are spacious and maintain privacy with a division between the two beds. The kitchens are cleaned 3 times a week and rooms once a month so really clean. Right next to a gym and cheap student membership. The social events are good with BBQs and a free breakfast every Sunday morning. Location is awful though with a 40min tube journey from campus.

The room and facilities are incredible and cheap, though the social aspect of halls does lack slightly. But that is mostly to do with the work ethic of the University more than anything. Awesome shower that is always able to put out a good temperature, incredible kitchens with plenty of space for everyone. Good music rooms and clean corridors

Based in North Acton it’s obviously a little far away from university, however with the introduction of the night tube running on the central line it makes it more bearable in coming back home from nights out. The facilities at Woodward are fantastic, I was there for the first year it was open and the kitchen facilities and entertainment facilities were great. The concierge staff were always really helpful and there are so many people there that you’ll make friends with at least someone

Really nice place to live. It's clean and rooms are nice with pretty large beds that can come in handy if you're lucky. It has a lot of useful places around to buy food and hang out, as well as really good transport links. There's a good amount of people here so that you can make enough friends but don't don't have to be social with or even remember everybody. Only real downside is the distance from uni.

The location, in North Acton, is somewhat lacking and it can take 30-45 minutes to get to the South Kensington campus by tube. However, the prices are the best I've seen in London, especially for such new and nice rooms. Most of the kitchens are quite big, and all have 2 fridges, the rooms all have small double beds and although not massively spacious have plenty of storage space (underbed storage, cupboard, cabinet in bathroom, desk drawers, cabinets over desk). There are plenty of events run by the hall seniors which arefun, especially the barbecues towards the end of the academic year.

Despite woodward at the time of applying being my last choice of hall, if i could do it all over again I would have no-doubt picked woodward as my first choice. Woodward halls are clean, modern, brand new and very practical. The rooms are definitely within the best uni rooms ive ever seen and are ALL ensuite and DOUBLE BED. The bathroom is of a very good standard and the workspace is also very good. The storage space lacks a little bit, but for a girl with lots of clothes i was able to fit everything easily in my room utilizing the under the bed storage. The wifi is great, i never experiences any problems with it. The facilities are amazing, huge common room, music practise rooms including a piano and games room. There was also a really cute roof top garden and another garden outside the common room. It goes without saying but the D block kitchens are amazing. B and C block kitchens arent as good but still very good, spacious and clean compared to other halls. Rooms are cleaned once a month and kitchens are cleaned 3 times a week but lovely caretakers. The gym facilities are amazing and are only a 2 minute walk from woodward. For £40 a year you get unlimited use of the gym, lots of free classes (pilates,zumba,spinning,HITT etc). Obviously the main problem with woodward is location, its quite far out of the way and takes 50 minutes to get to south kensington every morning. I used to buy a monthly oyster travel card (£91) and use that everyday to save money. Also the long commute means that you easiky make friends. Lastly, woodward has many social events throughput the year, lots of BBQs during the summer term and FREE breakfast EVERY sunday which aint too shabby if you ask me.

The rooms are a good value for money given that it is for a London university. Big 3/4 bed and large desk and storage spaces. The social aspect is good with free film nights and free breakfast every Sunday. Woodward organised something on every night of freshers fortnight and the final event was the Ball which was a very fun experience. The halls are a distance away from the uni but the commute isn't too much of a hassle and it is nice to get away from the uni campus and have time out at the end of a long day.

All the facilities, social aspects and surrounding area are amazing, the only issue is the location as it requires a lot of public transport to get to campus

New building with good facilities which is all very clean and well kept. Cheap for London prices, although very far out from campus which is the only down side

Amazing facilities for a cheap price. It's too far from campus, so I'd recomend another hall. The seniors and wardens organize quality events all around the year. I made some of my best friends here

Woodward is an amazing halls. The facilities are new and its value for money. There are halls events on each week. The only downside is the distance from uni, but you get used to it.

Location was slightly too far from the university campus, though the 700 people it housed made up for that. The flats were near enough perfect, with outstanding kitchens as I was in D block and got a great view from the huge windows. All in all the halls were great, and there were various socials that were organised to help people meet new students.

Overall good, cheap, good facilities. Good social events for the money. Bit far away, commuting takes a while but with cost of transport, still cheapest.
