Wessex Hall is lively, sociable & most importantly inclusive of everybody that lives there. With the free roaming corridors, it’s much easier to interact with people assigned to different kitchens & make way more friends than in other halls. Wessex halls also has it’s own bar ‘ice house’, JCR room, hall & study spaces.

Amazing, brilliant to make friends, good help moving in from JCR, rooms were small but had enough storage space and were modern, kitchens had plenty of storage room and the JCR room and the library were very nice to have when exam season rolled around. All in all, I would 100% recommend Wessex hall.

Really sociable hall, communal kitchen areas where anyone from hall can visit, due to corridors running length of building. The rooms have been recently refurbished and therefore extremely nice. The showers and bathrooms are the worst part of the halls however they are still of an average standard. I would definitely recommend these balls to any prospective students, it is the cheapest hall on campus and although they are not Ensuite rooms the sink in every room is more than sufficient.

Best hall on campus! Super friendly, amazing social life and just an all round party! Not the nicest of places to live (showers are pretty grim) but that is totally made up by the unbeatable social life!

The location was very good being about eight minutes walk from the centre of campus. There is a bar on the bottom floor of the hall which sells pints at between £2.30 and £3.50 and cocktails. Facilities are okay, pretty standard for the cheapest halls on campus with a sink in each room, shared baths and showers and kitchens. Good social life as you can move around he hall without access cards to each floor or block. The rooms are again pretty standard, not much more than a bed and somewhere to hang clothes and a desk. Building looks pretty grim but doesn’t really matter. The lake is quite nice. There is a JCR common room downstairs and a tiny little computer room which does a job. All in all, cheap, cheerful, does what it says on the tin, good for social life, would recommend.

I spent so long looking at halls comparing prices, rooms, trying to figure out which one was better socially and I think I have definitely picked the best halls! It's the most sociable by far! There's a real community. Rooms are LUSH! Sharing a kitchen with more people makes making friends so much easier!

Wessex Hall is one of the main reasons I love all the time I spend at uni. It's affordable and very social with everyone knowing each other. I find my bedroom really nice and the kitchen well equipped.
