Just finished a year at Quads. Absolutely loved it! Really great having money on your card to spend on campus - so nice not to have to cook all the time plus it was great going out for meals on campus with people from your flat. I thought the sitting room would be used loads but we rarely went in there - we used to just stay in the kitchen! It was a really good location - so close to everything. Very social halls to be in. Would highly recommend!!

The rooms are small but there's loads of storage space and they're furnished well. The en-suite bathroom is great, as is the wall-mounted TV. The kitchen and social space are both massive which is great for pre-drinks! The kitchen is always cleaned extremely well (every 3 days or so) but your rooms are only cleaned every 6 weeks and to a very poor standard, so be prepared to look after your room yourself! The money uploaded onto your library card for use in the eateries is super convenient, but prices are pretty high in most places. Walking to the on-campus supermarket can be a bit of a trek but it's never really bothered me. The internet is great when it works, but can intermittently cut out.

Rooms are not the size of a tennis court, but they are good enough, plus lovely decorated. Ensuite is brilliant. Kitchen is brilliant. However, the extractors over the hobs are not powerful enough. If you are stir-frying a steak or some chicken, better turn both on and open the windows cause it will get smoky! Social spaces are good with big flat tv and a big round table and 6-7 chairs. Nevertheless, I missed a sofa, since there was like a soft bench in one of the walls and two big beanbags. Mood lights in rooms and "living room" are nice, especially when watching a film or playing video games. Met my best mates of uni in first year, and most of them are from here! You get to know the other 9 of your own flat plus the other from the flats in your same floor, which is so good.

the parties are crazy, in a good way. and no other halls are quite set up for slip and slide in the corridors quite so perfectly. at times you hate how tiny the rooms are (especially if you are a girl) but then again at least your'e not sharing a bathroom! the kitchens are fab, the social spaces are good, but not well laid out, but theres room enough for a ping pong table (i know we bought one)

Very small rooms, social space joined to two flats meaning they have access to your flat (and the kitchen can't lock). Had quite a few people breaking into the flat trying to steal things/get into everyone's rooms/wake people up. Not great if you want to sleep or don't enjoy drinking, usually trashed when you go to a lecture in the morning.

Social spaces in particular the lounges are good for pre's and for working during the day creating s communal environment! Wifi works well and the cleaners are lovely. Having the extra £25 a week on your library card is amazing if you can't be bothered to cook and can keep you going for many meals! However just pray you don't wake up late for lectures in 8W!

Very comfortable, the rooms are a bit small to move around in but you can store all your stuff easily. The ensuite is great, even if the automatic ventilator can get annoying. The kitchens are huge, there's plenty of space with two hobs, four ovens and three fridges per 8 or 10 students. The lounges are great to host movie nights, pre-drinks or even Sunday flat roasts!

Quads is brilliant but we're not allowed a wall of photos with all our flat experiences because of an advertisement for bikes underneath just because we're first floor.

Internet varies a fair bit between rooms - it drops out regularly in my room but is stable in others. The supplied equipment is great, although the TVs are very fiddly. Good amount of social space compensates for small rooms.

Nice modern accommodation, but too many things break, the lounges are very basic with only hard chairs, and the wifi is very slow and hardly works (and doesn't on my desk).

Overall, a great halls to live in. A little far from the West buildings on campus but very close to the Chancellor's Building, the Campus mail room, a launderette, and the Lime Tree restaurant. The room could perhaps be a bit bigger for what you pay but you do get an en suite and a very spacious common room. The standard of cleaning is fantastic and maintenance is outstanding. You will almost certainly have a great uni experience living in the Quads.

The life experience at the Quads is really pleasant. Our big kitchen permits us to all have dinner together and even to cook together. The Common Room is really useful to meet or even to watch a movie all together, but the problem is that there are not enough sits, so that we have to take those from the kitchen and take them back every time. The cleaning is done by some really kind people, but who, probably because of a lack of time, cannot clean properly our kitchen. Moreover the bins get often full. The experience is overall really good!

Facilities are very good, everything you need provided. Rooms are actually quite spacious, lots of little holes and shelves to tuck things away in. It is expensive, but make sure you make use of the food money! Internet speed/connection isn't great but you get used to it. Toilets are quite small and the toilet roll holder is in an awkward place. The social space/lounge area is honestly the best thing, I only go to my room to sleep!!

Living in The Quads is hardly cheap, and the inclusion of a £25 per week eat and drink card is both a blessing and a curse - i.e. great for being lazy, awful for being thrifty (UoB's eateries don't offer really offer much at 'student prices'). The rooms are VERY compact, but in truth, you won't feel like they need to be any larger. There is a lot of storage space, though space for hanging clothes up is a little limited so I'd advise to be at least a LITTLE selective in choosing what you want to bring to uni. The kitchen and hallway is cleaned every 3 days by a team of cleaners, to the envy of your friends from Eastwood, and your rooms are cleaned occasionally - but occasionally enough so that you have to keep things in order yourself. Quads halls have always been the cleanest halls I've spent time in. Socially, you'll mix with 1 other flat through the shared social space - so you get to know 20 people rather than 10.
