    Hi!! First time poster here

    Has anybody lived in a Hox Park accomodation? One has just opened in Egham, near my (potential) university (Royal Holloway) and I’m wondering whether I want to apply there or not. I have some questions though!

    1) is it nice? did/do you enjoy living there?
    2) is it mostly undergraduates, and, if so, is it 2nd and 3rd year students or a mix of 1st years too?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Hi Yungsera,
    I have not lived in Hox park, but i have applied for it this year. comapring all the accomodations in egham nearer to RHUL, only hoxpark, the pad and podium is good. whereas pad and podium is quite expensive. the ensuite room starts around 198pounds. but in hoxpark, its 150pounds upto 180 for shared and 200 to 285 for studios. they provide free shuttle to university and free gym membership included in the rent. from my observance i hope its best compared to all other including the on-campus accomodation.

    Hi!

    May I ask, what year of study are you in? I ended up not applying for Hox Park as I was worried it would be catered to mostly 2nd/3rd year undergrads and postgrads. It does seem like a great option though, much cheaper than the alternatives and it looks lovely.
