The location is incredibly convenient for getting to the university, and regarding halls, it must be the best of its kind in that aspect. Thus it is disheartening to know that in a few years The Hawthorns will no longer be a hall. The facilities are very mediocre; the power goes out in my kitchen on a weekly basis, and the dryers in the laundrette have not been fixed for a long time. The student lounge is generally foul-smelling and considering this is an accommodation for 100 people, it doesn't nearly facilitate this number of people. The pastoral support team however, are great at their job and I know many of my fellow students are in contact with them.
