I really like being in the centre of Birmingham and only 5 minutes away from lectures, also my room is bigger than I imagined and I like having an ensuite shower room. The one big disadvantage is the fact that my room is right next to the kitchen and as the walls are thin you can hear noise from the kitchen most nights, which isn't so great if you have lectures very early the next day!

JW is probably the best value for money accom in central brum, and the best in AU for first years as its best socially and has the best lifts

Big room compared to other student rooms with a lot of storage space. The ensuite bathroom is also a good size along with the kitchen. However what has really let me down about living here is the lack of being able to give preferences on who you live with, for example I do not go on nights out as often as others and I prefer to get a relatively early night. Unfortunately I was out with flatmates who play loud, booming music until 5am which was not good for me as I have ended up sleep deprived as the majority of my lectures are early. In addition to this, the Hall management have received a low rating due to me raising this issue and it not being taken as seriously. Overall I love the look of the accomodation and rooms but the management is not the best.

Clean, new, all ensuite. Very well insulated, but means the accommodation is very overly hot almost the whole year, as the windows only open a small amount.
