I have lived in halls for the full three years being at university. They have been great. It is a 10 minute walk from uni and has the main supermarkets and town centre nearby; good location and ive made lots of new friends!

Downsides: Terrible for vistors, not allowed past 12 weekdays and you have to pay to have them past that on friday/saturday. The "Cleaning" offerd is litterally only that they will bleach wipe the kitchen surfaces/toilet interior, but only if they aren't already visibly dirty. If dirty dishes cover 5% of the surfaces they'll clean nothing and if repeated will charge. Security whilst decent at their job will treat you like an infant and employ no give and take. As of summer 2016, all top floor windows have (EXTRA) restrictors on top of the normal ones meaning the window can barely be opened. So you will BAKE during summer. (Enjoy the 1/4 chance of that). Finally, they are extremely slow at refunding deposits, painfully so. Which can make paying your deposit for your next accomodation (which won't be the same place) difficult. Good points: If it's literally the only place left available all of the features that the residence doesn't control are amazing.

The security treat you like you're 5 and not paying for the accommodation. If you want visitors don't bother living here because you have to pay extra and you're only allowed them round on Fridays and Saturdays. If you plan on bringing people back on a night out on the student night (wednesdays) don't bother they watch the entrance like a hawk and will kick them out. Good value for money though won't get cheaper accommodation so if you're a poor peasant definitely the place to go.

The place is pretty outdated, but compared to other places that you can stay in the local area its good value for money and right in the middle of the town, most shops are no longer than a 10 minute walk away making it very easy to shop in different places, there are three things that I feel let the place down and that is that the cleaners only come once a week and decide to throw away or tea towels and sponges in the kitchen, they have also not cleaned the floors on more than one occasion which is not our job to do. Another thing that lets down the halls is the lack of space and things to do in the common room, 2 tvs with no Sky or equivalent, a pool table and a football table is all it really has would be nice for more variety. Lastly the internet here is around 10mbps and often does not work, but from what I have heard its a problem in all halls.

You don't get an actual cooker or a good eating space, WiFi at the start was awful but has been fixed, the single bed is too small

Stuck in the middle of a dirty, noisy industrial site with a brothel just two streets behind. Beautiful, scenic location of old cars, garages, derelict warehouses and prostitutes. Only plus side is its very close to supermarkets, train station and university. Beware: the steel works are noisy every morning except Sunday.

I would never recommend anyone to live here, the accommodation is dire with badly maintained flats, tiny rooms and unhelpful staff. Your expected to share a table top oven and a microwave between 6 students, without any real oven and temperamental hobs. Any complaints will be overlooked and abusive flatmates will be favoured over you.

Halls are in perfect place with everything you need within 5-10 minute walk. We have a common room with a pool room, football table, telly, couches with vending machines and a toilet but it's quite small and can't host more than about 30 people! Laundrette quite modern. Cleaning is up standard.
