Premium En-Suite, the room is nice with lots of storage space and if you have any issues they are fixed quick normally within 24 hours - week for less urgent things. Kitchen is large and as a flat with 10 you get 3 fridge/freezers whereas normally its 2, beware its Induction Hobs which require special pans and not all work even if they are Induction! Social Life depends on what you make of it, If you make good friends who are social then its great and being less than 3 minutes from Park Bar you haven't got far to go, beware wait times in Park bar can be very long on Union nights (Wed & Sat) and days where there's large sporting events as they never have enough staff to serve and can be waiting up to an hour to get a drink so get more than one on these nights or get in early. Theres eduroam wifi across all halls and campus but it is hit or miss whether it works or not but in your room and Kitchen you have free 100Mbps CableCom ethernet with 2 ports in each room

Probably the best halls to stay in. Great environment and very close to campus and union. Would definitely say it's better than Mackinder and bridges

The location of Stenton hall could not be more ideal, situated right next to park place where there is the reception, bar, and washing machines, and just a short walk from most of the buildings around campus. The halls themselves are very well maintained, extremely spacious throughout, I love my room. There is an abundance of storage space, and a huge desk perfect for working, it's also lovely to have a small double bed, and an ensuite (which is not a wetroom). The kitchens are very well equipped, 2 cupboards and a draw for each person, 3 fridge freezers in our 10 person block, and good cooking equipment which is always replaced promptly if found to be faulty. The only negative point I have is the social side - Stenton halls are extremely quiet and antisocial, definitely don't feel that I have made many friends within the halls as most of the people here keep themselves to themselves, obviously there sometimes are exceptions, but if you are looking for a busy communal area, and to be very friendly amongst your flatmates I would suggest living elsewhere!

Room decent size, would be better if there was a social space, location good as near Union and park bar.

The location is central in terms of other accommodation available on campus. Just short walk to main campus, playing fields and sport facilities. Socially very active almost everyone goes out most nights. Room well furnished with ensuit and ample storage.

The location is perfect on campus with only a 5 min walk to union and 2 min walk to park bar. Cleaned weekly, very safe and lots going on. Loved staying here.

Very expensive. Double bed, en suite and self-catered. Located on campus, about 10-20 minute walk to any on site building. Very nice kitchen. No communal space. Located near park bar, which is a great place to go. Some, but not many issues. A lot of international students, so flatmates may not be that up for going out clubbing.

Good location on campus - central and close to everything you need Room size is great, and ensuite is really nice A bit pricey but facilities nice and was kept reasonably clean Only improvement we wanted was some sort of lounge area or at least a sofa in the kitchen so we have somewhere comfortable to socialize

Stenton Halls are among the nicest on Reading University campus, with high quality rooms, ideal location and great amenities close by. The price of Stenton Halls however are fairly expensive, but this may be worth it in your first year University to ease you into student life...

The Hall is located a 5 minute walk from the main part of campus and a mere minute from ParkBar and laundry area. The halls had new modern kitchens and had plenty of cupboard space. My room was large with plenty of storage and came with an ensuite bathroom that was fully functional.
