Brilliant location right opposite uni, can get there within 5 minutes. Beautiful gardens in front, access to corner shop a minute away, a couple minutes walk to the gym. Meet lots of new friends and large kitchen to socialise in.

As a fresher staying in those help me settle in London, due to their perfect location in South Kensington and the 5 minute distance from Uni. Modern and spacious. Would really recommend them.

These halls although pricey are such an amazing experience! The rooms are such high quality that they are used as hotel rooms over the summer break. The social life obviously varies with people you live with but mine was amazing! I'd pick them again!

I've been able to meet some amazing people who share the same interests for science as I do. Being in a twin room has also forced me to talk and get out of my comfort zone which I'm really happy about. If anything isn't working, maintanence is quick to fix it making the experience easier for everyone.

Social experience is very good via communal kitchens per floor and common room and lounge. Kitchen facilities are enough but can get dirty occasionally. They do get cleaned as do rooms. Would recommend for social and comfort but beware odd individual

Great location, large rooms, and tons of social activities. The fact that students from many different countries live here makes it a really nice and diverse place to live as well.

Pros: - 5 mins walk to class - Good facilities (common room, gym nearby) Cons: - Kitchen will be wrecked almost every night due to pre-drinking. - Expensive if in single room - Room is not that large

Ive been in halls for 4 years both as a fresher and as a hall senior following this. The community formed in halls definitely adds to the experience since you can chill with your new friends and explore places together. I have made some friends for life

Ive been in halls and a hall senior for 4 years in total and I've never been bored in halls. The community of friends you form and the proximity to campus really adds to the university experience. I've made some friends for life.

Great location, but not very sociable. Right next to South Ken campus so getting into uni every day took two minutes, but social spaces weren't very well used and lots of people spent all their time in their rooms. Rooms are a bit small but well maintained and all en suite which was nice. WiFi could be patchy.

within 5 minutes to campus, 10 minutes from Sainsbury's and waitrose, location doesn't get any better. facilities were top notch, clean and of high quality.

I absolutely love the location of South Kensington. It is very central the city of London and very close to some fantastic interactions. My lecture hall is a mere 5 minute walk from my room which is very useful for early morning lectures and not having to wake up really early. The social life is absolutely amazing with so many societys, so many that are so large and very fun to attend events of. I’ve especially enjoyed taking part in East Meets West. The common room in Southside is nice but it isn’t open after 11 which is a common usage time for many students.

Honestly what makes a hall good it’s in great measure the people you leave with, which is just luck. It is true though that south side is very convenient for being so near to uni and it’s shared kitchen is quite good. Rooms are ok but they’re a little bit better I’d say in other halls but there’s not much difference tbh.

Located right next to the main South Kensington campus. So convenient can just roll out of bed. New so nicely designed. Has excellent facilities and regular cleaning. Many hall activities organised.

Southside is in the perfect location right in the middle of South Kensington. Surrounded on all sides by the Natural History Museum, Science Museum, V&A Museum, Hyde Park and Royal Albert Hall. Halls are relatively new with fantastic furnishings and amenities. Bar, shop, and outdoor green areas a short walk away.

Very near to the university which is great. Overall furniture is new. Rent is quite pricey compared to other uni halls but you get what you paid for.

Great atmosphere and hall activities. Friendly hall seniors and large corridors enabled more socialising and opportunities to make friends. Need greater emphasis on keeping kitchens clean.

It's super close to campus (5-min walk only!). Facilities are all very new and modern. We also got access to the Wilson Lounge. People are friendly but it's a bit expensive.

The location is fantastic! It is just across the road to Imperial College London entrance and so it is very convenient for me to go to university. Additionally, it is close to Hyde Park, and the South Kensington Station and so easy to travel. Also, the building is very new and modern and so the quality is at a very high standard.

Firstly, the location of the hall is perfect, as it sits just next to the campus and near Hyde Park and Ethos. It is good for both studies and exercising. The hall itself does not contain much facilities, but common kitchen helps students to blend in the uni quickly. The common room in the basement provides good social chance for people as well. The room is simply flawless, big and quiet.

Excellent location in South Kensington. Lots of events organised by hall seniors and very diverse group of people.
