On Sutton Bonington the halls were ok, not as good as they should have been for the price you pay. However the company that owned the halls (Opal) went bankrupt so now a different company runs the halls so the service should be better. Within a few weeks of living in halls (Ratcliffe) the boiler broke down and everyone had to leave permanently, so I moved in with my friends in Normanton, which is a really nice old building with standard rooms. In my flat we had two bathrooms shared with five people and everyone had a sink in their rooms so we rarely had to wait for the bathroom. also in the old buildings (Normanton and Kingston) the windows open fully which is a big bonus in comparison with the new buildings which only open a couple in inches. Thrumpton and Costock are a bit of a walk away but have bigger rooms than the en suite alternatives in Stanford, Zouch and Barton, these last three are very small. unfortunately on SB you have to be part catered, the food provider (Sodexo) is not very good, apparently it has improved but by the end of the year you forget that food can taste nice×

The food on catered halls is bland. It needs to be improved. That said, I still know people who don't mind it. It beats having to cook all your meals and you can still order in takeaways whenever you want. You also get a shared mini kitchen with a kettle and microwave to use. And the cafes on campus have much, much better food. They are covered by the meal plan for catered halls. I much prefer self-catered since you have a bit more independence. You can cook and eat when you want. On catered halls, they have set times for breakfast and supper. Although cooking all your meals can be a pain especially when you're tired and hungry, there are quick meals you can make - like pizzas, etc. I think those are the determining factors when choosing halls.×

Halls are well equipped but not all are accessible for wheelchair users. Certain halls are known as the 'party halls', particularly the large ones - Hugh Stewart and Cripps. Florence Boot and Nightingale are small, friendly halls.×

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
