It is expensive , the location Is good as it is near most things as well as being close to bus stop meaning you can get into town easily. the cleaning in the communal area is done on a weakly basis and is done well how ever it never stays clean so you would have to clean it again yourselves. I Was on the first floor in a small section of the corridor with only five people which is good if you like quite and the social experience isn't your main priority however for me going out and being able to have party is a important part of the university experience however the other parts of the building are longer corridors meaning you can socialise better I think it would be beneficial if they did a questionnaire at the begin to try and house you with people with similar interests especially when it comes to social life and parties. Overall I have been happy with the accommodation

Typical poor quality, overpriced student accommodation. I was put in block A, which is much older and less luxurious than the other two more modern blocks. Not worth £6,400! Unlike in the other two blocks, the beds are single with notoriously uncomfortable, poorly sprung mattresses, with many people having to buy mattress toppers so they can't feel the springs. The en suite is just a small wet room type thing (and not the luxurious kind!). The kitchen shared between eight people is pretty small, the table is stupidly high up with no chairs only stools which are pretty uncomfortable to sit on. The cleaners are absolute dragons who seem to spend more time whinging, making threats and bossing about students and confiscating their bathroom bleach than they do actually cleaning. The one redeeming feature about TC was it's convenient location as it is near to the Cinema where most of my lectures are held, as well as a shortcut for walking into the city centre.

I loved the placement on campus, it was close to everywhere and all of my friends (so other accommodations) yet far enough away that it was peaceful during study periods

I was not a big fan of this place. I am a very anti-social person and the specimens I lived with made an absolute racket for pretty much the entire year. I especially enjoyed it when they kept me up before my last exam until 4 in the morning.

good location, always clean and tidy and cleaners regularly visit your room. No communal space whatsoever, except for some computers to do work on. Can't access other areas apart from your own corridor, so social experience is rubbish too.

This is for court C. It's a bit expensive but you've got everything you need. Wi-Fi can be a bit spotty but it's fast and the wired internet is amazing. Cleaning staff don't do much but it's better than nothing.

The rooms in Tyler B are a really good size and the kitchen is lush. However the "ensuites" are basically just a walk in shower and often the water will spill out under the door and make the carpet wet. Also the heat detectors are quite sensitive which can be incredibly annoying. But overall Tyler court is definitely one of the best places to live on campus.

I live in Tyler Court C and thought I'd be disappointed because my first choice was Turing, but it is just as nice! It's great to have a double bed and en suite, especially as I happened to be put with 6 guys. The kitchen is lovely and modern, however there are only 5 stools for 8 people which is annoying, and a corner sofa which isn't very sociable. My flat is on the bottom floor so the big windows have views of the woodland outside which is nice. This halls is the best should you want to walk into town or to the train station frequently as it only takes about 15/20 minutes and it's also very close to most lecture theatres and about 7 minutes from venue, so a great location. It's also not too loud as we're set off down a hill from central campus so there are rarely drunk people wandering about and banging on Windows which my friend at Keynes has experienced. All in all, it's a fab halls if you're willing to spend £6k on it (my student loan didn't nearly cover it but it was worth it)

Tyler court B is really nice and modern. The rooms are spacious and have a lot of storage space and it has a double bed. The layout of the rooms look like a hotel which is really nice. Also the kitchen is very well eauipped with 2 stoves and 2 ovens and 2 sinks. However the seating area and couches in the kitchen are rather uncomfortable and not very comfy.

Tyler court A was a great place to live in my first year. It's such a sociable halls, it'd be impossible for you not to make friends- who ever you are! The only bad side is the lack of space to socialise. We don't have a communal/ common area, so the only place to socialise were in the kitchens and they were quite small.

Good place to socialise if you want to, but there's not communial space aside from the study area. This is nice because it means when you need to concentrate for your work you can, and when you want to party you can easily go out to Origins or Venue etc.

En suite was perfect for my needs, and the room although small had the correct amount of storage so surprisingly everything fitted. Only thing that I would have to say is the social area is poor as we only have a small ish kitchen with horrible high stools and a tiny sofa. But that's tyler court A- apparently B and C are better.

As nice as this modernly refurbished halls is, the cost of it is extortionate and out ways all good things about it. Hall management is basically non existent, unless you're deemed to be making too much noise, for instance I had water coming through my fire alarm, yes water through an electrical device, and yet they could do nothing?!?! And finally, my biggest gripe of them all is the particular corridor I am placed on. What you should be aware of is, at Kent they place you with whoever they feel like. So for my first year it was greatly ruined by two of my flat mates, who for their own reasons will be living here for the rest of their time at uni.. One of whom is a very noisy drama student who only likes girls and the sound of his own voice, any noise made by you will be instantly reported to campus watch, but in his words you are to desensitise yourself from his noise. If you are given a room ranging from 105-109 then quickly ring and ask to change!!!!!!!!

Stayed in tyler court C for my first year, just been redecorated so was very modern. Can't fault the flat at all, plenty of storage, double bed, en suite etc. Cleaner was brilliant, kitchen once a week, en suites once a fortnight. A great place to live for you're first year on campus as long as you can afford it !
