Honestly a rip off, lifts are broke all the time, washings really overpriced, only good thing is the location but other than that I really wouldn’t recommend living here at all

Glad so many students like this place!! I find Dorchester House adequate to good, though some things are very annoying! The lights come on all the time, night or day, and you can't turn them off - waste of energy and unpleasant. There's no switch to turn off the fan & light in the bathroom pod, and the fan is so noisy! [You can solve it, though, so be creative! ;-) ] Was asked to remove and store all belongings for "deep clean"... When I returned, the cleaners were sitting in the corridor chatting while the floors clearly hadn't been cleaned, the shelves, surfaces and window sills not wiped - so what exactly is a deep clean? There is no small saucepan with a lid, so had to buy one. There's an ironing board, but no iron! Which bin is for recycling, if any? I'm here in July, and they've given me a winter duvet - very uncomfortable; will buy my own. But then, I live here as a teacher, not a student, and am used to my own home comforts.

Mouldy, damp bathrooms, maintenance never fixed unlocked flat door. We were left with exposed electric cables for months on end.

Don't apply here. It's overpriced and really not worth it.
