    Just wondering, is Harrow as bad an area as I am led to believe..? What are the actual halls like? Can't decide whether to live in or travel in as I am close enough to do so.

    I'm a postgraduate student who lives in the Harrow Halls of Residence.

    This is the first I'm hearing of them having a bad reputation. I found they are quite pleasant: not as expensive as some of the halls in Central London, but Central London is only a short tube ride away. It can be nice to be in a quieter part of the city.

    The halls themselves are nice. The people are friendly and welcoming, but if you want some quiet time away from others, they are respectful of that. A couple other nice perks are the Undercroft, an affordable student pub that is on campus, and a big Sainsbury's that's a short walk away.

    Regarding the rooms, it depends on how much you want to spend. If you spend more, you do get some more spacious accommodations. I have a standard en-suite, which is a bit small, but not unreasonably so. It comes with its own shower and toilet, so it's great not having to share.

    Hope this helps!

    Thank you for that, I haven't heard bad things about the halls themselves, more of the area. What have you found Harrow like to live in as an area?

    I like it, although it can be a bit on the quiet side. There are some nice parks and other greenery close by; perfect if you want to play football with some mates or just enjoy the calm and take a nice walk.

    There are some good, inexpensive takeaway places nearby. Not a lot of nightclubs unsurprisingly, but there are some pubs around.

    It's not quite as exciting as living in Central London would be of course, but it's more affordable and it's so easy to get into the city, it never feels like an isolated place.
