BIG TIP: GO TO TALYBONT. Either North, South, or Court, it's the epicentre of 1st year uni. Court is one of the pricier halls, and you can tell. The rooms and facilities are far nicer than you'll get in north or South, but the staff are stricter and I was put into house 3 unfortunately so was with majoritally postgrads, although house 1 and 2 were more social.

My experience there was awful and I would never recommend it to anyone. It is extremely expensive for the awful service and shoddy building works which remains the case with builders constantly being there and walking into rooms without being granted permission. Problems are never sorted. Anyone moving there for the following year, I wish them luck.

My light flickers, hot water is temperamental, the restrictor on the window is actually against health and safety as it opens all of 2cm, i feel like i can't breathe. The staff are rude, take over and think they own the place when they dont, and they dont even live there. sorry but i dont think I'm giving four THOUSAND six hundred pounds of my money for this s***.

comfortable rooms, living room not great, very grumpy staff, but most memorably a distinct lack of any positive atmosphere compared to other halls, perhaps due to there being nowhere to socialise, as well as strict security.

I really enjoy it however the wifi is a nightmare, I'm in the end room and the wifi box is nearer the kitchen so I have to go into the kitchen to do work otherwise it won't connect.

It's a really nice accommodation. It's like a 10 minute walk to the SU and a 5 minute walk to Tesco. The staff is friendly and always ready to help you if there is a problem or you simply want to ask about something. The rooms are quite big compared to other uni halls and bathrooms are en-suite. It's not as social as Talybont South but you can still socialize with your housemates. It's definitely worth the money!

The bedrooms are a nice size with a massive desk and ensuite bathrooms! There are lovely, big kitchens with a dining area (sofas and bar stools) and it's quite elegant looking. Slightly expensive but very very worth it! Also it's in a prime location because it's the Talybont complex which is closest to town and lectures - only a 15min walk to lectures and 20mins to town.

Talybont court in my opinion is the best out of the 4 talybont residences, this is mainly due to location and the facilities you get in your room for the price (huge kitchen, full sized bathroom, enormous desk). contrary to what most say if you want to socialise it is just as social as any other halls, you just have to walk around and look for people with open flat doors! Its very close to the main campus and also close to heath park for healthcare students. Yes the management can be strict, but if you were like me and had really dirty flatmates and lived on the ground floor where idiots would knock on your window then it was needed to keep the order, there not pushy just make sure everything runs smoothly. cleaners are fabulous but beware of the females, they can be a little mean in terms of cleaning when your kitchen is a mess like mine. Overall I love it here!

Really nice room with huge desk, same goes for the en suite bathroom, really nice, far better than tally south. Internet is always dogey but that's the same all over the uni. Wish my flatmates were a little more laid back and up for chilling but they're still very nice. Not as party mad as I would like, south is better for social gatherings.

Facilities were great in Taly court, but the social aspect to living in halls was slightly lacking compared to Taly north and South. Though this may have just been the people in my block that year!
