love living at Liberty! Was at first annoyed as I was not placed on the main student villages, but there's a great family feeling about living here and you can have a good night out or spend a quiet night in- best of both worlds!

Our oven broke about 3 months in, we had the maintenance people look at it 4 times and they refused to mend it. They kept coming up with some **** story that the oven turned itself off when it got to the right temperature but that simply wasn't true (chips etc. took an hour+ to cook). Basically the halls are lovely and the staff are really helpful right up until the point where they actually have to do anything of note.

Not a great success Absolutely no social spaces so isolating Expensive to travel to uni and a very long walk which is dark in winter No attempt to match people in flats so disastrous all round . They don’t show you these places on the open day which is a bit dishonest but it makes money for a private company so someone is happy Avoid

Absolutely atrocious it is literally inhumane to be offered this horrible building not owned by the uni over 2 miles from the uni rather than any of my 6 preferences, anyone given this has really drawn the short straw i'd rather be anywhere else its ruined my uni experience.

I enjoyed staying in Leith a lot, it's a place with a lot going on and that character somewhat makes up for the fact it is so far away! The wifi however, was absolutely atrocious from October to March, which is really unacceptable for students. Also, the study room was incredibly small.

Extremely far from university (40minute walk), office hours are 4.30-5.30 so if you miss a parcel then you can't access it if you're not free! Rooms are small, but beds have just been upgraded so future value for money will improve. No common room space as a halls, but sofa area in each kitchen is nice.

Very sociable accommodation, good value for money and good location near the broad street and the city centre. Would be nice to be closer to the Uni of Birmingham though.

Love everything about it, nobody chose it as their choice but pretty much everyone who gets allocated here will tell you how awesome it is. I don't know whether it's because of the way the accommodation is gated in facing each other, or maybe because we're all not on the vale, but there really is a true sense of community and hall pride in Liberty Gardens which speaking to previous residents seem to happen year on year. Incredibly social, the location is amazing if you love the city and love going out, and honestly the distance from uni isn't as big of a deal as you would imagine. Edgbaston is lovely, and we get so many more benefits of the city plus super close train station. Excellent value for money, super friendly and helpful staff from Liberty Living but also get the benefits of it still being with the uni and have lovely RA's who interact with the guild for us. Wouldn't change it for the world

Pros: great management, free parking, friendly and efficient (free) maintenance, good storage space, good security Cons: Over two miles to many lectures, no shuttle bus, no cleaning, very small shower, feels very isolated, small rooms, hot and muggy on the ground floor, windows don't open

Really nice flats, the rooms are a good size and the living/kitchen room is a good size for pres and chilling! Because it's small and all the flats surround a courtyard it's quite communal and you get to know a lot of people in different blocks! Only problem is there's no communal area, it's a 30-40 min walk to campus and you miss out on some vale activities- but then it's so close to broad street, tesco, train station and McDonald's! And you can catch the train to Uni for £1.30 return so if it's raining you have it better than the those on the vale!

It was far away from uni but was right next to Broad Street - if you like going out, it's perfect.
