- Great for fresher year, although I'd move into somewhere private in later years due to it being quite steep in price for what you get. - Wifi is great in some places although others it's dire and doesn't work - shop on site is good value and sells the usual stuff - the bar on site is cheap but not open often - amazing location - everything is in walking distance - Annoying that you have to fill in forms to have guests stay over night and no visitors are permitted after 11pm. - best accommodation ucb offer

Decent halls. Heating in rooms are a shambles as they come on supposedly for an hour but barely warm the room up. Kitchen doesn’t have any doors on the cupboards so everything you store in them is exposed. If you burn some food and the smell still lingers, they assume you have been smoking in the halls and you receive a fine. Each flat has an annoying doorbell. There are no lifts in some of the blocks so if you’re on the top floor and you plan on getting merry, take into consideration the stairs you’ve got to challenge back to your room. Guests aren’t allowed in after 11pm and you need a permit to have someone stay over. I wouldn’t recommend this accommodation but I guess you get what you pay for.

Good location in the sense they are right in the city. Hall management stay out of your hair and pretty much just keep to themselves, however security on the gate are a NIGHTMARE, you cannot have any friends over without them signing in because they check everyones keys on they gate past about 9ish. You have to clean kitchen yourself but you will get fined £15 per person if you do not pass the weekly inspection twice in a row. There are NO social spaces, there used to be a bar on campus which has now been closed because of the bad behaviour of a few students, the uni said it will never reopen the bar. My social experience has been pretty good, a few flats in our block all socialised, but I don't know if this was the case for every block. Internet is rubbish! Worth noting that while the security are a nightmare on the gate, that is literally all they do, there is no noise complaints system in place. So if you have a loud flatmate you just have to put up with it.

Great location and nice looking on the outside. Bedrooms are good size. Kitchens are awful, ovens take for ever to heat up and then burn everything within 5minutes! Also, there's no comfy lounge area to relax and socialise, and the student bar was only open on Wednesday evenings for society use and even then it got closed down!!

The rooms are very good value for money with spacious bathrooms. Dining area of the kitchen isn't very big, but big enough for everyone to sit at the table. Social nights are good, and the bar prices are very fair (Bar One). The accommodation is very central and only a few minutes walk from the Broad Street where all the main pubs and clubs are.

Really outdated decor and layout. Hardly any in-room water/heating facilities work. I have no own heater and shower elsewhere when I can as pressure and temperature is pitiful. Some flats have mice. No kitchens have matching equipment I.e. Ovens, fridges, and there is lots of mould both in bathrooms, kitchens and on window sills.
