Q
How big are the desks? they look really small in the pictures

Q
There seems to be only a handful of en-suite rooms, curious to know do the people who have an en-suite get isolated or excluded from the rest of the flatmates because they don't have to share a bedroom?

I don't even know where to start with this place... Firstly the maintenance is absolutely dreadful. Whenever anything breaks in this place it takes them forever to sort the problem. A few great examples would be when the flat next door had no running water for 2 days and we had to give them water, which is just absolutely bizarre. Maintenance came to our flat to plaster a wall in the bathroom leaving chippings of the wall all over the floor and not even bothering to clean it up. There is mold growing in the bathroom because there isn't proper ventilation and when we reported the problem we were met with an email telling us how to get rid of the mold "ourselves" when its a literal health hazard. There are 2 washing machines and 2 tumble dryers which cost roughly a fiver per cycle for 6 floors full of students. The tumble dryers are terrible making you pay for 2 cycles to have fully dry clothes. Worst Place ever not worth the money at all. wouldn't recommend this accommodation to anyone.

Amazing place to live. But maintenance in the building is a large issue. Worth it in the long run.

My unite room looked nice but as soon as something broke (which was quite frequent) you could tell it was cheap products used. There was grey paint on my desk from painting the walls and my whole desk was completely broken when they put in a new radiator and didnt fix it. There is absolutely no social events set up by unite. The laundry machines were expensive and there was only 4 machines for the hundreds of residents. In a great location right in the centre but not worth the money.

Joke of an accommodation, complete rip off. 6 grand a year for a kitchen of that standard. My room was one of the best but the majority I’ve seen were a joke. A thousand locks to get from place to place means there no socialising unless you smoke, where there’s a big smoking area. No way for a free flowing social environment to develop. A blend of hippy students who have been planning to get to a Bristol uni for 7 years, too be the pinnacle of cool combined with some poor unassuming kids who got to uwe on insurance choice who can’t quite fit in. Poor guys. No real benefits to living there except maybe access to shops and clubs. But no one can afford shops in uni anyway

Really good location to experience Bristol. The Drake side is bigger than Nelson.

Amazing value for money, great location, friendly and helpful staff, really enjoyed my stay here! A lot depends on your flatmates, but fortunately I was lucky to have amazing flatmates, who we really get along with. It gives you a great head start in your life in Bristol, it's probably the safest halls i've been in during my first year, and it's cleaner and more chill than Marketgate. The internet is perfectly fine, Netflix is gonna run, don't worry, and those occasional skype sessions are ok as well. :) I would definitely recommend this over the few bigger ones around the city center, you're not gonna regret it, not just that it's closer to all the big venues, it's really easy to access since the Centre bus stop is basically 2 min walk away, providing instant commute to all campuses.
