i beg anyone stays away from this hellhole. Awful location sandwiched between a train station, main road with very busy traffic and an extremely loud night club, say goodbye to peaceful sleep. The walls are paper thin and cheap plywood so you can hear every fart, cough or sigh. Flats are horribly maintained, with the cooker breaking in my flat, bed being broken when I moved in, window seal rotting off, doors moldy and damp and the wood literally peeling off. The "cleaners" do nothing, they just turn up and leave an assessment for the cleanliness in the flat, which is awful because they don't even clean up the corridors or hallways so they remain filthy. We moved a sofa and found a glass panel on a wall with hundreds of dead flies in it, same with the light fixtures. The kitchen doors are alarmed and will sound a shrieking noise if held open for longer than 30 seconds. The parking lots machine to leave doesnt detect the fobs. All of these have been reported multiple times with no help
Great location but the building need renovating and all the standard flats have nowhere to socialise.
I stayed in Coggan House during the 2019-2020 year. Small flats (2-3 occupants) and that's how I liked it so a good plus there. Only had to share a bathroom and a kitchen so cleaning was minimal which was nice. Only downside was that there was no social area for any of the flats. A living room would have been nice but you can't have everything. Location was excellent as well - right next to Canterbury East and 2 minutes from Augustine House and Library. 1 minute from ALDI and about a 10 minute walk from city centre and Wincheap shops. All in all, brilliantly located. I am returning this coming year (2020-2021) and will be living in Runcie House.
I applied late (june time) and so i applies for accommodation around july time so i ended up with my third choice and i asked for standard but ended up getting a large room. however I am actually quite happy, the large room is really good, however it is only a single bed! I stayed in Runcie House. With a large room you only share with 1 other person, so I got put with another girl, and she’s ones of my best friends! I have a large wardrobe and a decent desk, beds are okay but i got a mattress topper. we share a bathroom but it’s never been a problem, tbf we don’t see eachother that often bc of uni and work. the kitchen is tiny but we get a lot of cupboard and fridge space, our hob and fridge is new! the bathroom is a bath and shower which is very clean. the best part of pin hill is it’s location. it’s 1 minute walk to the club chemistry, means you can pre drink til the last minute and no paying for taxis or cloak room. aldi is 2 mins walk away, the library is 5 mins away, uni is 15 min
No social or communal space unless you use the hallways and corridors. Flats are only 2 or 3 people in each in general so you are pretty much reliant on getting on with your 1 or 2 flat mates in comparison to having a larger number. However you only share kitchen and bathroom with small number of people which is good. Security are generally great.
Not great but it did the job. Me and my housemates made the best of it!!
Good, basic student accommodation. Was a shame that there were no communal areas but still made lots of friends.
