The rooms are very nice. The desk is large and the bathroom is very nice with a powerful shower and a nice size. The only thing is It can flood the floor if you're not careful. The facilities are decent but the best part is the location. There is a coop in the building and another down the road. The train station is just down the road. Asda is the other way. The town centre is a ten minute walk. There is a gym in the building as well as over the road.

It was close to the town and Westquay shopping centre which was great for weekends and food shopping as all in walking distance of 5 minutes. Lovely rooms and short distant from docks and clubs very central. However it is 20minute bus journey to campus but in first year you receive a free bus pass so no extra cost and so close to many things in Southampton. Would highly recommend. Never lonely or had nothing to do.

The location is very accessible, especially with the Unilink buses. Also the facilities are great - there is a high quality gym and co-op extremely close by. But the social experiences are great and my room is a good-size and well maintained.

The location is amazing, right in the centre of the city and close to everything. The uni is only 15/20 minutes away by bus which is ideal. The gym below is perfect. The rooms are nice and modern, especially the bathrooms. Only issue would be that the beds are small and quite uncomfortable.

Location is right in the centre so close to clubs, superstore, shops and many others. My room is very good, very spacious and on the top floor so gives a remarkable view and the facilities of halls is great too.

Overall great accommodation! So close to the city centre and only a 5 minute walk from the main clubs/pubs in town so perfect for student life. The student services are very much on top of everything and regular checks/ cleanups help to keep the flat tidy. The only drawback would be the inconsistent WiFi...

Great location for night life but furthest halls from university which is hard when you're hungover! The gym and co-operative are really helpful and useful and the halls condition was always good. 10 in a flat might be a little too much but it can definitely work!

Very good location in the city centre with good bus service to the university. Good gym in the Mayflower halls.

Good location near all shops and entertainment. Access to the university is made easy by the university buses.

My room was very nice, with en suite and a very nice shower, the kitchen was average sized but not much of a living area. The higher levels get very hot especially in the summer. All the staff are very nice and I felt very comfortable living here

The best accommodation you can get at Southampton. Walking distance to everything you need (clubs, shopping, train station etc) & you get a free bus pass to get you to the university campuses whenever you need to. For the price you're paying, the security should be a bit more lenient. Some apartments have been constantly told off & kicked out for socialising with other flats and playing music at a moderate volume and at a reasonable time; some have even had to face unreasonable fines. Yet other flats have gotten away with it. The security guards need to remember that we're all university students.

Mayflower are modern, spacious and vibrant halls. Located in the cultural quarter of Southampton, there are many events and facilities nearby. Everything is in walking distance and the bus to university is only 20 minutes. The halls boast a gym and a store right beneath one of the blocks. The social experience is incredible here, everyone is very friendly and doors are always left open. The kitchens are the perfect size to host parties. The rooms are all en-suite which is great for privacy, they are all a nice size with lots of natural lighting and creative space to work.

The location is really good if you prefer being close to the city centre. The only problem is you have to take 15-20 minute bus ride to the campus. Rooms are of moderate size and comfortable enough.

The location is amazing ! A huge asda 5 mins walk and a co op right in the building alongwith gym, study spaces and pool table and stuff. 24/7 resident support and student support teams! Buses to uni every 10 mins on weekdays and it takes only 15-20 mins to get to uni! However the laundry is bit too tiny and the rooms could be designed better with more shelving ! Monte cat 2 rooms are so much better

good location nice kitchens and clean and new en suite rooms Incredibly hot bedrooms with no air very antisocial, i was put in a flat as the only non chinease with 6 chinease girls. very isolating and poor planning by them very expensive, private accomodation was half the price in the same area

Loved it. Best year ever. Really modern halls which are well looked after and maintained. Very clean. In a brilliant location close to town and ideal for nights out as you can walk to and from all the major clubs. Bus for uni stops right outside and takes around 15mins to get to Highfield Campus.

Had a great experience at mayflower, everything was fun and friendly. There was loads of activities to get involved with each week that enhanced my experience, my room was a decent size and I enjoyed my experience throughout the year. The location was great as it was situated in the city centre, close to all shops and clubs, the halls offered a free bus pass to travel which became extremely useful throughout the year.

Good room, big kitchens but rooms were way too hot and couldn’t open any of the windows. Good to have kitchens cleaned by staff every few days

The facilities here are very minimal and has no social element really. We have a communal space ,however, it doesn’t really attract anyone to use it.

9 April 2018

Rooms were very nice, and kitchen and communal areas were cleaned multiple times per week. Mayflower is the farthest hall from Uni campus, but a free bus pass is included and buses run to campus every 7 mins during the day from right outside the halls. The city centre location was ideal, which allowed us to explore Southampton a lot more than students from the other halls. The study area in block C is a great place to work, and I used it a lot during the summer exam period. My flat had some trouble with water flowing back up our sink - we were on the ground floor and the main pipe for us and all of the flats above us got blocked - but this was sorted and didn't happen again. Another problem with being on the ground floor was the noise of people walking past my window at night, although security were there 24hrs to move people on if they were loud. My friends from the other side of the block found that their rooms got very warm in the mornings when the Sun shone straight at their windows. At some times it felt like MF was less of a community than other halls might be, because of the scale of the place and the fact that most people don't use the common rooms. If you're confident meeting new people from different flats you'll make lots of friends, but if you lack this you might feel oddly lonely at times. The main thing that attracted me to MF was the gym, and this was really useful to have! I still prefer MF gym to the one on campus, and having it so close meant i had no excuse not to use it.
