The location is great, it’s on campus and a 10 minute walk by the Whiteknights lake to main campus. The socials were really fun, they were easily the best out of all the halls and made it super easy to make friends. Also, if you don’t like drinking, there are socials (such as pizza nights) which also made it easy to socialise. The rooms are decent, featuring a sink, desk and single bed with plenty of storage. However, the toilets and showers aren’t great but they are cleaned every day and do the job. Some kitchens are quite small and can be a bit difficult but they’re not too bad and other kitchens are bigger. Also the rooms aren’t laid out in a very social way, they are like corridors but that wasn’t much of an issue, it’s just not homely as some of the other halls. Overall I would rate it a really good halls, it’s also the cheapest, and I had a great experience there.

Although wessex is one of the cheapest halls, the room itself is very nice and big enough to live in comfortably. The showers and toilets are not too great but I think they are being refurbised over the summer for September 2018. The social life at Wessex is amazing as the JCR team come up with a lot of socials and makes Wessex seem like a community.

Good location with decent corner shops and a Dominos 5 min walk away. Close to bus stops so very convenient to get into town. Also, good location to the Uni buildings and main hub area. Social experience is good if you get to know the people in the accommodation building otherwise quite difficult. Room good size and good view to the lake.

Lovely new rooms and kitchens. Our kitchen was particularly spacious as we were living at the end of the corridor. The shared toilets and showers were dated but clean. The kitchen/toilets/bathrooms were cleaned regularly.

I really enjoy living at Wessex. I originally chose it because it was the cheapest accomodation, however now after living here since September have learnt that it is also has the best social vibe and homely feeling. Living at wessex has made the transition from the family home very easy and the support that we receive from the security staff, cleaning staff and warden is peerless. The halls are cleaned regularly and we are encouraged to have some independnce with recycling our own glass bottles and, obviously, keeping our own rooms tidy. The social experience is great as we have our own bar, ice bar, which has a consistently great vibe and our jcr room and library are aspects that not many of the other more expensive halls have. The junior reps of our halls have made the experience of living here even better with socials also.
