This place is full of mould and has no kitchen. Is impossible to make healthy meals for yourself and you must share a half sized fridge between 7 of you. The corridors are claustrophobic there is no social area to meet with others in and the walls are painted over bricks. Showers and toilet are all shared and basic/falling to bits. Almost every two leaks. I chose this accommodation because it's the cheapest and I thought 'ah it's only a year' but in the long run you probably spend more on food due to having the get microwave meals or eating out more, than you would spend on the extra grand for accomodation with a kitchen. Also the whole building is loud 24/7

Do not pick this building as an option! Avoid living here at ALL costs! It’s like a prison and your mental health will surely suffer. I spent my entire first year unhappy and unable to socialise due to no common room. Take mine and my friends advice, just don’t do it!

Okay so the other reviews are pretty bleak but Eliot really isn't that bad, the whole catered aspect is a little annoying but you get money to spend each day which can get you one main meal or a couple of small meals if you make it stretch. It's a little annoying but going out to places to eat with friends is quite nice. The halls are a little dated but you get over that after literally a day. The accommodation depends on who you meet and I can say I've met some great friends here so it completely justified staying here. All in all, the accommodation isn't amazing but it's not as bad as people are making it out to be.

Awful, awful, bloody awful. The rooms are ok and the college is in a nice place though here are the negatives: There are two showers and one toilet to share between 7 people; one shower was tiny, the other was cold. The toilet was too small to sit down and close the door The whole place is demoralising. I honestly felt horrible living there and the only reason I stayed was because the other people trapped with me were great company I lost one stone while living there and couldn't cook myself anything other than pasta in the microwave because we only had a microwave; no oven, no stove, no nothing The whole place has a horrible atmosphere and I hated living there

Just hoped I had a common room or actual kitchen so everyone in the corridor can chill together

Thick walls so better than average sound proofing, shame there was no real kitchen. Convenient location though!

There is no common room, judt have a kitchenette which is smaller than a cubical in the loos. The rooms are relatively big, but are very dated and crap... the location is central on campus but a long walk from town!

Fine for what you pay for but really lacking in the university experience. Also no kitchen = regret for the whole duration of your stay.

A good, central Hall of Residence that draws in a nice community, is a social area and is well centred for all university needs. However the Hall is lacking in kitchen facilities, and its area is small and confined.

there is no kitchen in the facilities. Also there is no social areas and so it is quite hard to meet people. There is only one bar in the building which is the only way to meet people but is awkward if you don't drink. On the plus side the location is close to all other uni buildings so you can get up 10 minutes before your lecture and still make it :-D
