We think we’re pretty great, but here’s what some of our students have to say about living with us

The things I most enjoy about Athena Hall are the security offered by staff 24/7, its location and the really friendly staff.

Steven, 3rd year

I like it all – the location, facilities, friendly staff and social events - especially the food!!

Andrew, 3rd year

I found Athena Hall value for money. I enjoyed the good maintenance, quality rooms, the guaranteed en-suite and great social life.
