Great facilities. My flat mates are terrible though and constantly steal from me and leave a mess everywhere. But when I raised this issue with the staff they had words with them and things have improved. I'd say the best thing about the acomodation is the staff as they are always friendly and willing to help resolve problems. The wifi is ok if you pay extra for a faster connection

You ask to live with quiet people in the forms and they set you up with a bunch of noisy w******! Facilities are good but the people are awful

I lived in the green first year. Expensive, but most students live there in their first year so you meet a lot of people. There wasn't a common room whilst i was there as it was still fairly new but there is one now, There was a rat problem and it can get a bit rowdy sometimes. The ensuite wetroom takes some getting use to. In terms of cleanliness, just pray you get clean flat mates cause that'll make all the difference. In second year I lived in arkwright which is cheaper and nicer, in terms of looks, but my flatmates weren't clean which, for me ruined the experience. Arkwright walls are quite thin as well and the heating is energy saving so only stays on for 3 hours. The common room is nice though

- Got threatened with fines for things like cleaning (£400) and the back door breaking (£51). Which wasn't my fault. - Wifi isn't great, goes off every so often. One time it went off for more than 24 hours. - The staff are friendly but useless. You try and ask them for help and they always go about it in a lazy way. - The bedrooms are unbearably and uncomfortably hot. I have my windows cracked open in winter. You can't touch the radiators or otherwise the hot water goes off??? - Hot water kept going off, one time in the middle of showering. Couldn't wash up properly. - Rats everywhere. - 2 of our microwaves already broke within the first few months even the kettle. ~They do a discount if you stay the next year but honestly it's not worth it in my experience. Met some lovely people however.~

I lived at The Green for two years and I loved my time there. The rooms are lovely and spacious, and the staff are incredibly helpful and quick to sort out any problems. The Green is in an ideal location to the University and the grounds it is situated on are lovely, it's aesthetically pleasing with the pond and many trees. They often have many social events throughout the year; Easter egg hunt, Christmas Treasure hunt and BBQ's. The only significant negative about The Green is the Wifi, the could do with faster internet.

Everything was great. It's right on campus so it's easy to get to lectures.

I'd say Raglan House is probably where you're most "Free" to live. Other accommodations like Liberty Point the security bothers you about everything, usually about how many people are in your flat and how much noise you're making (more awkward in some situations than others...). Not at Raglan, I've only ever seen one security dude and he's chill as f***. Very well located too, I mean sure it's very nearby to this place called Hillfields and the short description of Hillfields is "avoid going there at all costs" but you're never going to find yourself needing to walk more than 15 minutes in any direction for any reason. As for the flats themselves they're not great, they're identical inside to Callice Court and aren't exactly homely. It's nice living at the smallest accommodation though, familiar faces are just about one of the only somewhat homely features of any accommodation, and it's nice not to have to wait for a lift (there're only four floors, stairs are exercise).

I like it cause it's close to the uni and so I can awake up 5mins before class and make it on time but the facilities are terrible for the price I'm paying. There's always something wrong - either our heating stops working, our hot water keeps going out (went without a shower for 3 days because of it), the electicity and lights have gone out twice. The house parties aren't bad but I'm definitely not living here next year

The heating and hot water keep on getting off every few weeks. We had one week where it got off 3 times.

The wifi is completely unacceptable, the showers are terrible, the cupboards are tiny and the people are s***. The people have all been terrible, I don't know one person with decent flatmates. The kitchens don't get cleaned, which means, as the only person who cares, our flat is only ever cleaned by me, unlike in most halls where they have cleaners for the kitchens. The only redeeming quality is that the green is on campus, and therefore a 2 minute walk in the morning to lectures. But then so is the other non uni hall so. The wifi is just completely unacceptable. We pay almost 5 grand for a year in this place, and the best they'll give us is 2mbps without having to PAY to upgrade! £10 for 30 days at 5mbps being the cheapest. It's just ridiculous. It gets to a point where I literally can not do my work in my room because the internet (I use ethernet) is so f****** slow!

Then the showers are awful, the shower head is stuck in place so if you're tall or short, it's never in the right spot. The wet room is literally like a sauna when you have it on, and believe me, the term wet room is applicable because EVERYTHING gets soaked, shower curtain (which is far too close to the stream so you can't stand under it without being stuck to ) or not.

Not recommend anyone to move in. Not a good accommodation. Too much noise specially at night time. Poor security. If you complain she simply said that other paid as well so we can not do any thing. Laundry cost is so expensive. You are not allowed to keep a small microwave in your room. Not good for Muslim or vegetarians because you can not stop your ketches mates to cook pork or put alcohol in fridge. I am vegetarian and it is so difficult for me to do washing in kitchen and also keep my stuff in fridge with chicken, pork and alcohol.

Ensuit only: Communal spaces are different sizes even though your all paying the same price. Showers take a long time to drain and you only get free 2mbps wifi but to upgrade it could cost you £75 per month

Very close to city campus, you can practically roll into lectures.. Social experience very good. Probably a bit on the expensive side though..
