Facilities is standard. I cant stand with the noise from a group of International students from certain country hanging out in the kitchen since afternoon till evening around 08:45pm shout and scream. Can we respect time. Some need quite moment to rest and study.
Good location and overall living areas. This accommodation has no social spaces as of yet, but I hear they are building one now (2017). What I liked about this accommodation was that the cleaning in the kitchen floors are done by a cleaning service a couple of times a week, while also taking out the trash, which makes it one less thing to worry about. If you report any issues, they are usually very quick and helpful but be aware that they operate according to urgency. What I found the worst about this accommodation was that there is literally no ventilation, so if there are more than 20 degrees outside you will die (the windows don't open very far). A lot of spiders and bugs. The post office in the building is only open one hour a day, and even sometimes the residential services forget to even do that. The lift also broke down A LOT. So if you are going to live here, choose a room that has a low number to avoid having to walk from the Ground floor to the 4th (like me).
You kinda expect that, once a new year hits, the rooms will be cleaned thoroughly for the new students that will arrive there. Dated (but functional) furniture, and the shower doesn't have a hose or anything just a head on the wall, but at least it's an en-suit bathroom. Good by "student accommodation standards", bad by "Room to live in" standards.
The halls are above a nursery and have no common room with dated and damaged rooms and small cramped kitchens. Windows do not open so are stupidly hot. maintenance takes for ever. my room used to flood and another had its heating permanently on. Parties are not aloud even though there is no su bar.
The only good thing was location. Overpriced, they get around giving you your deposit back by dy describing it as "advanced rent" ie rent for months you can't live there. Maintenance is poor, cock roaches and maggots but we were told it's not their problem
