Most helpful review

First of all I want to accent that location-wise it’s located perfectly between the city centre and the university (i.e. easy access to studies and for leisure stuff/cafes/restaurants/supermarkets etc.), on a walking distance from train station (good for students living not far from Bristol, easy travel to home on weekends). Staff’s very friendly and always ready for help, even on non-working hours; in the night-time there’s security over the lobby, so a stay’s safe in all senses (for instance no drunk weirdos can come over the building as they do in a city centre quite often). Building’s freshly renovated and I personally never had any issue regarding maintenance, but as far as I know if even maintenance issues arise they’re being solved in a very quick period. And , most importantly, price-quality ratio’s very satisfying. So, I’m gladly recommending staying at Brunel :)

Brunel House was exactly what I hoped for, if not more. The residential team are incredibly friendly and accomodating. The Accomodation location is perfect - close to both campus, transport and the city facilities. Accomodation as a whole is well-structured and designed, full of social spaces, a beautiful backyard area and study spaces. My room is spacious and full of natural light, comfortable and has great storage. I always feel safe and supported here.

Superb location at the bottom of Park Street, lovely and attentive accommodation team, and well-maintained facilities. To further enhance the student experience, it would be great to acquire musical instruments like a guitar and a larger selection of games for the gaming console.

Sometimes there are needs for repairs in joint spaces like the lift that don’t happen in a timely fashion, but it is partially understandable due to timetabling issues.

I’ve been a resident here since September and it’s been a great experience! The manager when I moved in, Louis, was phenomenal, but he has sadly now left. Hayden, Jamie, Artur, Keniele and Lorraine are amazing staff members and they’ve made my stay fab. Lorraine cleans our kitchen biweekly and does a brilliant job. We even won an award for cleanest kitchen, being given chocolates! Lovely extra bit of care. The flat is very expensive, but in my experience it is the best ‘expensive’ halls in Bristol - Campbell House is also good, with amenities like a cinema room and coffee machine, but the location, kitchens and courtyard give Brunel the edge. If you’re going to go for an expensive en suite hall, go for this one, with Campbell as a close second. The wifi has been great. Very fast with a LAN port in the room. Some people get confused by having to put the MAC addresses of devices into the Glide app, but once you get that the wifi is fab. If you want an en suite, this is the best choice.

I've had a fantastic time living in Brunel whilst studying my Undergraduate Economics course. The social space always allows for good group study sessions as well as a fun game of pool. I've also had the pleasure of consistent support from the staff - especially Giorgia who always greets me enthusiastically.

Brunel is a great accommodation for people searching for a city central environment with everything as close as can be. It is all very modern and walking distance of many shops and bars. With great access to college green and the cathedral, a lovely space to sit, a campus aspect to city Uni life.
