The facilities in Robert Bakewell, Hazlerigg Rutland and Elvyn Richards are very good but also very pricey. They are the newest halls, with 4 foot beds in nice rooms and big kitchens. These halls are close to the library which is handy but are quite far from the union and most subject buildings (apart from engineering which is very close). But the walk is straight forward and there are free shuttle buses if you don't want to walk! Towers and William Morris are in a good location if you want to be near the union. The bedrooms in Towers are just as nice as in Elvyn and Robert Bakewell and have a massive desk area with a good view if you are on a high floor but have a small kitchen because they are catered 7 days a week. I have heard William Morris has a good party atmosphere! Something I wasn't expecting is that flats in halls are often occupied by students from different year groups which sometimes creates a divide (freshers and 2nd years), as some people have been there a year longer, can feel like it is 'their territory'. It may work out well in some situations, but personally I would've preferred to live with only other freshers and have the 2nd years in a separate flat. The food in catered halls does not offer as much option as I would like, lacks in variety of vegetarian evening meals. I also think the evening meal time is too early (5-6.30).
