I am in a type 2 en-suite in Glen Eyre and the facilities are really good in it as well as the space for the kitchen. My building also has a lift which is really helpful. It's in a great location that's served by the bus and is only a 10 minute walk from campus. It's however one of the most expensive accommodations available. You do get a lot of value for money but laundry isn't included which makes it a whole lot more expensive considering we are students on budgets.

The rooms were decent in size and had a great amount of storage space in them. However, the section I lived in was very old and needed some repairs. The location was very good as it was only a short walk from campus, making it easy to get to university.

Literally some of my best uni memories are in halls! Glen was great for BBQs in the summer and festive in the winter. It always felt safe with the excellent security and well lit pathways, great for when you're coming back from a night out or the library at 3am

Good halls that are lovely and big wih lots of green space. Close walk to campus which is very convenient! Helpful cleaning staff, security and reception staff, reception operates 24 hours a day 365 days a year so there's always someone there If you need them

The location is great for all those who are fans of sleeping in. If you don't fancy having to wake up extra early to get a bus then glen eyre is the hall for you. The walk to uni is merely a 10 minute walk and even if you do decide to take a bus, one leaves every ten minutes. Standard facilities and social experience could be better. The rooms are spacious and airy.

The location is convenient as it's only a 15 minute walk from the University. Also it's easy to get a bus into the city centre. The rooms are quite big and of a suitable standard. The kitchens have adequate facilities and are cleaned weakly.

Short walk to the uni and main bus interchange, lovely facilities in the flats. The gym is small and not that great but you are only a short walk from the gym on campus

Great facilities all on the halls campus with great social space. Laundry and reception are central to all the halls which is great whatever block you're in. Great space to meet with friends and study.

New terrace. Old building, better facilities for a similar price at Chamberlain. Glen eyre is nice as a whole, everything is close, everyone knows everyone. Handy having an ensuite and your own space However, there is no common room/ living room so makes it hard to socialise- don't always want to be in the kitchen. There also aren't any TVs. Reception staff can be rude.

10/10 loved it. Great room, great social life, 10 minute walk to uni. Green open areas, used to have a bar but turned it into study space.

Although the flat itself was a bit outdated, the fact it was a block rather than a flat made the transition from home easier. Great friends, great halls, great year defo recommend.

Glen eyre is a wonderful, relaxed halls. The reception staff are welcoming and you always feel safe walking around the grounds. In the summer there is a big lawn area where you can comfortably study outside. The rooms are a decent size and maintaince are very quick at responding to any issue you have

I was located in the Brunei halls in glen eyre. The accommodation was a non-ensuite single bed room. I shared a kitchen with 7 other people and had 3 bathrooms between us. While it was the cheapest, it was still in a good location, only 5 minutes walk to Highfield Campus, and the halls themselves were sound. The cleaner was lovely and very useful, and the rooms were nicely spaced.

A very large collection of buildings that is great for meeting people and feels very natural despite being deep in the city. The staff are always around and helpful and the facilities are well looked after. Despite this the variation in rooms, despite being the same category is high and you can be given worse rooms than others for the same price. I enjoyed my time in halls as it was very pretty and I managed to find many friends around me. I would return to the same halls if I could as it was particularly good value for money

I stayed in Richard Newitt Courts, though I was placed in a room of a smaller size in B block, we benefit from much larger kitchens than other blocks, Richard Newitt in general I feel suits me perfectly, I share 2 showers and 2 toilets between 4 of us so is absolutely ideal, I wouldn't want to live in any other block, for the price in comparison to en suite rooms, I would much much more suggest to live here instead

The location was good as it was close to university, the downside however was it not having a small corner shop close to it. In the block I was in there could've been a better communal common room facility as there wasn't much space to socialise in the kitchens. The social experience was good and my room was good quality, I liked that it had a double bed and a really big desk.

Best halls ever. So close to uni with such a big community! There is a gym, a bar, most rooms are en-suite, you have lots of green areas for bbq in the summer. There's a bus stop outside and don't forget you get given a free bus pass for the year

I lived in category 1 non-ensuite accommodation last year and was pleasantly surprised by how nice it was. The rooms were admittedly quite small but there was plenty of storage space and enough space for it to not be too cramped. My flat was shared between 9 people with three bathrooms which was just right. The bathrooms were cleaned a few times a week and things like toilet paper were provided which was definitely appreciated. The only downside was the size of the kitchen as there were so many people sharing the one kitchen but only about 2 counters, meaning that if more than two people wanted to cook - which happened very regularly - then it would either be really awkward or someone would just have to wait until the others were done.

Selborne; Chancellor's Court, Glen Eyre. I was on the ground floor of Selborne for my first yesterday of uni. It was an okay building with lovely enhanced bedrooms with lots of storage. My room overlooked the green which was especially lovely in summer. The internet was fantastic (until we very accidentally kicked a football at the router). It was only a short walk away from uni so I could always lie in before lectures, however it was a trek to get to, and especially from, any clubs and bars. Other flats in Selborne were fantastic for socialising with other flats, however that wasn't the case for ours. We had a very small kitchen and the door to the flat went straight outside so we didn't have other flats in our corridor we could get to know. However, we formed a close knit group with in our flat and 3 of us still live together 3 years later. Overall it was a fantastic place to start my uni experience.

Hartley Grove - close to campus, en suite was great, spacious room with high ceilings. Communal atmosphere with fab neighbours, not too loud and quiet during exam period. Great storage facilities in room and nice view, close to Chamberlain so near friends.

Great location being near the university! The fact you get given a free bus pas for uni busses with halls really helped as you could travel into the city for free aswell! The university offered ensuite rooms which meant you don’t have to share a bathroom, which was very spacious, and so were the bedrooms. I would say that the more people in the flat the better as you have more chances of meeting people you get along with.

Very sociable halls. Really big as well so there's bound to be loads of people on your course living there which makes making friends and meeting up easier. Bonus gym just behind reception and lots of BBQ pits and grass for summer

Absolutely loved it. Good sized room, en suite, lovely kitchen with lots of space. Most modern halls at the University. Double bed is also good
