Communal cleaning could have been better, hallways and stairways were hardly ever cleaned. Only one common room for roughly 140 people. Locks on kitchens were easy to break into, so rather a lot of food was stolen during the night. Met lots of lovely people, several of whom I am living with next year!

Hillhead was fantastic especially the social side was the best year I ever had. Unfortunately the facilities at Wavell House were old and very basic.

Real good attitude with many nice people, pretty quiet, but no absence of parties. A good place to start your uni experience.

Walls are paper thin, you can hear absolutely everything and it is impossible to close your door in a quiet way. I get waken up at 4am by elephants living upstairs. There are two handles everywhere, you need two hands for everything so you have to drop all your stuff to the ground. Very easy to lock your keys in your room, that costs 3pounds. As people share the kitchens, they also steal the food and make unbelievable mess. But the cleaners here clean basically everything except your room. We get supplied with toilet tissues, soap and cleaning stuff. The bus stop is very close. I have not used laundry but it is very expensive and the drier does not work as I heard. If I was to choose again, I would choose flats, there is more space in the fridge and hopefully no thieves. And they have NORMAL doors. Yay.

Wavell House is great value for money, and has all the facilities you need. The rooms are super spacious. The kitchens could be bigger and actually have tables rather than just a breakfast bar. However, the cleaning service leaves a lot to be desired! We have a resident that is continually throwing up all over the toilets and this is not cleaned thoroughly by the cleaner! The cleaner also does not clean the kitchens properly.

I really enjoy being on a corridor rather than in a flat because there's a greater opportunity to socialise with loads of people. The only downside here is that there's only one tv room for the building, but it's hardly ever being used so a film night is a regular occurrence! The bedrooms are really big, and having a sink is so useful!
