This company is a complete rip off. My room was disgusting once I arrived - piles of dirt (including snot) under my chair and desk. Dirty common rooms, kitchen cleaning only once a month, and rat problem

You pay so much yet they still overcharge you for laundry every week (the machines and dryers work poorly so you have to use them over and over again for them to work, hence you pay almost double for everything in the end). Mediocre staff. They even make you pay if you want properly printed text (without ads). UCL is NOT 15 mins walking as mentioned on the website, instead it takes around 30 mins to walk to uni. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND. NOT WORTH YOUR MONEY!

St Pancras Way is expensive and dirty. Not only are there mice running around in the bin store, some kitchens and outside the building, they are now also crawling with bed bugs. The staff are friendly but incompetent as they are always losing parcels and room keys stop working. I have felt that they have been patronising on a number of occasions. They have a lot of common rooms but noone really uses them. They don't make an effort to help everyone socialise at all.

Quality Over Experience

Starting on the pros, the rooms were by far the best offered as a UCL hall. Spacious, modern, double bed and plenty of storage, with a well functioning and clean bathroom. The kitchen was similarly modern and well-equipped. Security within the building is of a very high standard, you require a key to get in at 3 separate stages before you even get to your room, and there is someone at the front desk 24/7. The management also respond efficiently to maintenance requests.



The location is great if your not fussed about being close to UCL - that's about a 20-25 minute walk although there are plenty of buses too if necessary. Close to Mornington Crescent, Camden Road, and Kings Cross St Pancras stations, so there are plenty of transport links, and close enough to Camden Town that there is plenty to do in the local area. However, it's not rare to see some dodgy looking people nearby.



With regards to cons, my biggest issue was with the kitchen. My flat of 10 people had a significantly smaller kitchen, with the same amount of fridge and storage space as a flat equipped for 6, with the result that we often felt tight on space. Furthermore, while other UCL halls have the kitchen cleaned twice weekly with a bin service, ours was only cleaned once fortnightly, and with 10 people it was hard to maintain cleanliness in between. Furthermore, the management were very strict on noise so that small flat parties were regularly shut down, which was very frustrating and damaging to the whole experience of it. The halls as a whole did not have a particularly good social scene as compared to Ramsay or the other big UCL halls.



Overall I'd say if you value the quality of your room and stay over the social scene, then St Panc is a great bet. If you're looking for somewhere typical of the uni experience, then maybe not.

Living here was not worth the amount payed per week. Compared to other ucl halls which get cleaned every few days, the bins taken out for them and the corridor cleaned, the cleaning service at st.pancras way is below adequate. The kitchens are cleaned once a fortnight and not thoroughly done.

The size of the flat is not big enough for 10 people and is smaller than most of the other flats with the same number of people. Our flat had the same number of fridges as a flat with 5 people so didn't have enough storage in the fridges or cupboards. There also was not enough places for everyone to cook or sit. The kitchen was also one of the smallest however had to fit one of the largest numbers of people.

Being on the 1st floor the blinds provided were not the same as the roller blinds on the other floors and so blocked out no light. You also could not have your blinds open during the day other wise people look in your room and kitchen, and the footfall past the windows of both bedrooms and kitchens can get very busy. It is also possible for people of small size to climb through the kitchen window. People also sit on the window ledged and smoke outside your room and so having the windows open isn't always an option unless you want the smell of smoke to come in.

Another problem with being on this floor as you can hear all of the noise from common room and also from people getting in and out of the lifts.

The location is okay however at night it is not the safest of areas and can feel quite dangerous. It is sometimes hard for taxis and deliveries to find the building too.

The rooms are a good size however some are bigger than others, but the bathrooms are a good size and have decent new facilities. The only complaints about the actual rooms is that the wardrobe is quite small and the shelves are too high up if you're a short female. Also the beds are quite hard to lift up if you're alone and so you can't store stuff you use frequently in the underbed storage.

The management is okay, however resolving problems does take a while and constant reminding. The problem with the noise of the generator took months to sort out, with not much updates from them.



Overall I would say going to a slightly cheaper older hall would be better value for money

Well, when you pay 208 for a single I'd say you get what you pay for. The halls are clean, the rooms are neat and organised with plenty of storage space. Double beds are always a plus. Close to MC station (about 6-7 minute walk away from MC, Sainsbury's, and KOKO), about a 25-27 minute walk to UCL if you're slow. Management is fairly friendly, if a bit anal retentive, internet is decent, kitchens are nice and spacious. Common rooms are sound. Location is alright, don't walk alone late at night if you're a girl (true of all of London) but generally pretty safe. Brand new building, good security––operates on a keycard basis, so don't lose your card.

All in all probably the best UCL hall. Not too great on location and it is expensive, but by and large beats Ifor Evans and Max Rayne.
