East slope is a brilliant hall for socialising and the closest halls to everything on campus with a walk of approx 2mins. Noise was a problem occasionally but calling the porter and sending in a complaint fixed this problem most of the time. Cleaning was also a slzifht problem but this was due to housemates not cleaners.

It’s barely liveable here. Walls crumbling, ceiling tiles falling down, furniture is all falling apart, toilets are horrible, just horrible here.

East slope in my opinion was a place that i wish i could have avoided but i couldn't as i was enetering via adjustment which meant i was just thrown in east slope obviously. It is a very sociable place but from what i've seen, this is only the case if you're a drinker or partyer. Nicknamed the 'slums or ghetto' area by many people in other accomodations, i coudn't agree more because it was really dirty most of the time outside and inside. Also, the condintions inside my flat were so terrible, it felt like the place was falling apart. Stayed there for two months and left as soon had the chance. Only positive is the central location on campus.

East Slope is the place to be! Honestly it more than makes up for anything you can complain about - it's not perfect, but you will make the best friends here and have everything you need, I wouldn't live anywhere else for the same rent. Live here while you can, you'll never find another place like it <3

I was put into East Slope when it wasn't my first choice and now I don't think I'd want to stay anywhere else! East Slope is placed perfectly on campus (close to bars, bus stops and lecture halls) and looks most like a normal flat in my opinion! If you're not fussy about sharing a shower with people or not having a sink in your room then this is such a good choice and you will save a lot of money (Especially if you're a First Generation Scholar because I pay £35 a week). It is so easy to make tonnes of friends because houses are so close together and people are super friendly so a lot of the time we'll find ourselves wondering around the slope and going in other flats and making friends! Reviews I read before coming here spoke about noise issues but they haven't been a problem so far, once in your room it is pretty quiet!

East Slope is a great budget option, with decent sized rooms and basic facilities. It is the most sociable of all the housing and is perfect for anyone not too fussy but looking for a good time.

The lowest of the low. Really cheap but it really isn't worth it if you don't have friends in better accommodation where you can go to

I loved my time in East Slope, the way the halls are set out allowed me to make friends quickly and easily, and the porters were extremely friendly. Can't fault it!

East slope does what it says on the tin. Yes it really is as bad as everyone says it is, and there's no wonder it's previously been described as the favelas. So noisy you can never sleep. If you want parties nearly every night then this place is for you. If, however, you value your beauty sleep, then East slope is not the place to go.

East Slope is legendary...not the cleanest, or prettiest, but it's got character. Wooden beams and you can sit on the roof and watch the beautiful sunset.Cheap as well, about £80 a week...that's because it's falling down.

The buildings were old but if you feel like you'd prefer to live in a community rather than living in one of the brand new sterile buildings then East slope is for you.

No comfy sofas/ living room- dining room and kitchen are the only social spaces. Wouldn't have gone for any other accommodation though

The halls themselves were fine, but only one shower between you and no social space besides the kitchen/dining room. Socially, in less you're a druggy, this won't be the place for you

For £80 a week, this is fine. Working kitchen appliances, fun night life, friendly people etc. But the best aspect to this is the field behind East slope. Amazing view from the hill and great to chill on with friends.
