Waverley house is in a great location as it's so close to everything being in the city centre. The flats are really modern and bedrooms are all a great size - you get a double bed! However it's quite pricey to say you don't get an en suite or even a sink in your room and the common room is pretty small so isn't as social as other accommodations. But I have loved living here despite this!

Sth about the studios in Waverley: The rooms are really big compared with many studios in similar price or higher. The whole Room is shaped like a "U" where kitchen and bedroom are separated by the corridor and bathroom. So it's pretty organised. These studios are open in 2019 So they are really new and well equipped with wardrobe, iron, freezer, microwave oven, sofa, desk, etc. Also it requires a key card to access the building and your room so your safety is guaranteed. There are fire alarm checks every week but it doesn't bother you forva long time (usually less than 2 mins). The thing is room cleaning service are not provided to studios so you need to do the cleaning by yourself. And it can be really noisy due to some constructions nearby. It's a pity that you don't really have roommates to play with but there are many events held in riverside from time to time and there are so many stores and clubs for you to hang out with friends. The staffs are also nice and helpful.

They don't give tours on open days and this wasn't my first choice of halls so I didn't know what to expect. I will say that the flats are so much nicer in person, the pictures on websites don't really do it justice. All the flats are modern and the rooms are really decent sizes, all the rooms in one flat have different layouts. The social spaces aren't great but it wasn't hard to make friends as there were loads of parties and pres in Freshers anyway. Never had an issue with the shared bathrooms being occupied or dirty. I was in a bigger flat with 8 people (-04) so had 2 bathrooms. The view from 8th floor is really nice. Would recommend as a first choice for accomodation!

Waverley this year seems to be the most social out of the three Riverside accomodations...Everyone is super friendly and down-to-earth! It was very social during freshers with loads of flat parties/pres - so was easy to make friends with people. My flat didn't bond straight away but gradually we've become closer over time - so don't rush anything! Rooms are great value for money - especially when compared to pricey Orchard Heights - as our rooms are bigger and still modern with small double beds too. Lots of storage space - big wardrobe and storage under bed as well. Location wise it's perfect if you want to be close to both Uni and all the clubs/shops. (Big asda is a 15 min walk too!) Though, there's not as much of a community feel as you'd get in Clifton/Stoke Bishop as naturally we're all a lot more independent in the city centre - which isn't always a bad thing! Most people had Riverside as their second choice but have grown to love & prefer it :)

Initially when I moved in it was great. And then, starting in October, there was construction 8 am to 5 pm with noise above legal noise limits. The walls would shake and you could feel the vibrations in the floor. After many complaints and petitioning the university, they changed the hours to 10 am to 2 pm, so gracious of them -_-. We still have not received any compensation in spite of the fact that we pay the same amount as the other Riverside buildings who could not hear the construction. The social events often do not have enough food or space for everyone, even though we all payed a social fee. The cleaners don't come on schedule, the fire alarm goes off randomly like once a week for no reason, the elevators are never all working at the same time (my flatmate was stuck in the lift for an hour), maintenance requests go ignored, and random maintenance people walk in often yet nothing gets fixed. It's definitely not worth how nice the pics look.

Double beds is a positive, but constant building work from 7am-6pm causing the walls and floors to shake. Quite expensive for what it is and better Social spaces are in the Rackhay across the road rather than in the building itself
