Good location on campus, only about a 7 minute walk from the centre but away from all the noise. In my opinion it's a little overpriced for what it is but the halls are fairly new so things are still in pretty good knick.

The location of Bridges Halls is perfect, just a couple of minutes walk to the centre of campus, and a positive for fellow art lovers as the block is just ahead of Bridges. The lay out of Bridges creates many social encounters. Social areas are not too far from Bridges, although it is less advantageous for the most popular bar - "Park Bar". Despite this, it's only a 10 minute walk and a cheaper bar "Mojos" is just a couple of minutes away. The rooms are very modern and spacious for intended single rooms. The WiFi is good, however sometimes this will be slow like any other internet.

Good halls for both first years and returners. on the quieter side of campus but still has a good social scene.

Rooms were lovely and spacious, bathrooms are shared (3 per flat of 10) and were cleaned twice a week. Has a very big kitchen, much bigger than other halls which was a great area for socialising. Unfortunately, like all the halls at Reading the price is very high compared to similar halls at other universities.

Bridges is really new and provided loads of cooking space for 10 people in a flat. It is centrally located on campus which mad with easy to get to lectures on a morning.

Love the townhouses. Modern and spacious. But all th3 halls are overpriced! 12 people is a lot sharing one kitchen and there needs to be more shelves in the kitchen

Bridges is ideally located five minutes away from campus, including a walk over the lovely Whiteknights lake. Bridges Hall has premium shared bathroom flats. The rooms are massive with lots of shelves and wardrobe space for storage. There is a massive pinboard beside the bed which you can decorate to your hearts desire! There's a massive desk for doing work on too. Each flat has ten individuals who share three bathrooms (a shower is in each) and this is ideal with hardly any problems. For social areas, there is the JCR room where you can go to study and chill with friends. Ice House - Wessex hall's bar - is only a couple minutes walk away which offers a relaxed atmosphere to have a drink and a break from your degree work. Again, the main bars on campus are a 5-15 minute walk away respectively.

Good location and room size. Planning of kitchen and bedroom not perfect as don't seem to have utilised space well. Everything high quality and works well.

Good facilities, clean and modern but poor ventilation in flat for bathrooms and hallway so smell builds up. Flat is also cold in winter as heating is hardly ever turned on and can’t be manually turned on from inside the flat

Bridges was in a very good location on campus, only a 5 min walk to class. In a townhouse we had a bathroom between 2 and a cleaner that attended weekly which was greatly appreciated. The social experience was amazing, I made so many friends and got to know people in other flats through parties etc.
