Value for money is poor. Whilst my flat has got an ensuite thats about all thats great about it. The room has a single bed and is quite small. The common areas aren't great, they aren't very homely and some equipment is dated. However its in a great location for the city centre and University. There is also a gym at clv which is great. Reception staff are usually helpful/friendly.

if your going to Birmingham City university it is a 40 minute walk, it's in a rubbish location which doesn't help socialising as there isn't anything to socialise activities. I would not go again!! Jennens is definitely better or any other halls.

CLV has been good. Its quite expensive compared to other accommodations but your paying for the other services that most halls don't have such as the en-suite and the gym. Happy I chose to stay here. Staff usually friendly and polite and are available at reception 9-5.

I have been in this accommodation multiple times and it's either great or horrible depending on what you personally need. If you are a social student this isn't the best place, clubs are far away and social areas are very limited. Otherwise everything else is great, reception staff are very friendly and will help with any issue, the cleaning is superb and the staff with greet you as well, maintenance will do any job though aren't too friendly but they put up with all manner of problems so no issues there, the ISP is very good, speeds are about 60Mb/s or 8MB/s and the staff are very knowledgeable. Lastly it's not too far to either Aldi, Tesco, or either of the universities so I would continue to come here till I graduate .

Although Clv is located in a good area in walking distance to both university and bullring the overall experience is not something that would encourage me to re book. The management by staff is very relaxed and do not tend to handle and issues or problems in an effective or professional manor.

The halls could benefit from better kitchen facilities and also update the gym and an overall revamp

They take at least 2 days to complete maintenance request, want to squeeze every penny out of you if something breaks, lose or don't tell you if your parcels arrive/

Awful place. Great location but the gym is terrible, as is the common room and the rooms themselves are dirty and the furniture is all broken. Stay elsewhere, we had problems in 2015 with multiple flats being broken into so security is very poor!
