Had a s*** time here. was in a flat of 5 people and we all clashed massively, completely different interests, ended up that none of us would go into the kitchen when another was there. Due to the layout of the flat, we had no access to mix with others which was a serious hindrance to the ability to make friends and to socialise. Kitchen was tinyyyyy - 1 half size fridge, one hob for 5 people. Heard Westwood is better socially. Now i'm at another uni, having your own bathroom isn't worth the money or the experience it gives you!
A little expensive for what we get, and would expect more regular cleaning, but definitely one of the better accommodations on campus. Kitchen is big and so are the rooms, just majorly lacking a social chill space that isn't the kitchen.
Cheaper than the Quads, just as good quality but without the catering credit and the lounge, but honestly the kitchen's are big enough to have loads of people round. Management is decent, cleaning is ok but could do with a hoover in the flat constantly. Great location, easy to access anywhere on campus. 10/10 would #StudentLife again.
No problems with everything, decent sized room, good en-suite. Refurbished this year so our rooms and the kitchen are even nicer. 3 stars for common room because we don't have one - the kitchen is the social space! Everything cleaned regularly, super nice cleaner who always chats to us. The floors of the rooms need regular sweeping however. Right next to the Chancellors Building where we often have lectures, otherwise very close to the rest of campus - a minutes walk to the parade and SU.
The rooms are very modern and new including the walls, floor and desk. Lots of space and very open, the ensuite bathroom is also very modern and clean. Cleaners come regularly to clean Kitchen and hallway. Improvements would be to have a cleaner more regularly clean your room, and sofas as currently there are only benches as a dining table. Social space could be improved to be more value for money, but overall lovely place to live in. Very close to the shops and great location.
The bedrooms have a lot of space, are homely, and have mood lighting. The ensuite bathroom is also quite big and easy to keep clean. The floor to ceiling windows keeps the rooms really light. Big desk but small wardrobe. Really nice modern building with modern rooms and kitchen. Kitchen is really nice and the dining area is very social. central location on campus.
Ground floors only have 5 people and kitchen has French doors where people walking by ALWAYS look through. Can get annoying but if you stare at them back, they look away. Flat gets cleaned about 3 times a week. Bedrooms cleaned once in 6 weeks. No vacuums provided but iron and ironing board are. There's no social space. There's an ensuite and bedrooms are more spacious than Quads by far.
Although it is a lovely place to live, I felt very enclosed. Perhaps it is the norm for student accommodations to not have lounges but I still found it very hard to adapt to. 6 months in, I still feel like I am living in two rooms - my room and my kitchen (it is en-suite) and I hate lounging around in either of these places for different reasons. I'll end up sleeping in my room or eating in the kitchen - the very functions of the room! So make a new room called a lounge for lounging around in! Where else am I supposed to relax, the corridor? (We tried that, believe me) Also, it takes a while to get comfortable around flatmates and with only 7 it's very easy to miss people in the kitchen. And this will just get worse through the year, flatmates will become friends with others and not feel like they need to communicate with their own flatmates!!! People feel uncomfortable raiding others' rooms a few weeks in. A lounge is communal. Cleaning could be better. £135 expensive. Bedrooms nice.
