the accommodation was alright, i had an en-suite so it was nice not sharing a room and bedroom with anyone, the only place where all your flatmates would see each other is in the kitchen which was a decent size. my flatmates were nice and we always cleaned the kitchen together for inspections and helped each other with other stuff. the only problem i had was one of them kept smoking in the halls after knowing they weren't allowed to and same person kept bring people around at 1 to 6 am in the morning when everyone else is sleeping.
Great location, the rooms are a reasonable size and ensuite bathroom is lovely. Internet connection has its moments but otherwise is excellent. There is no common room which is a bit of a downer and the kitchen is very small, with only 6 freezer drawers to 7 people. There are also only two washing machines and dryers to about 120 people. You need to do all the cleaning yourself, so the cleanliness of the flat depends on who your sharing with. Halls staff are really friendly and are quick to respond with any issues you may have onsite, there are also security around who will be able to solve your issue. It is a little overpriced, but totally worth it for being able to hop out of bed five minutes before a lecture starts and not worry about being late
No common room or much social space is its main downfall, especially if you have a ensuite room you only get a breakfast bar in the kitchen which isn't great because a flat of 7 have difficulty sitting at it all at once and because there was no common we just ended up on the floor in the hallway.
The building i old, the fire-alarm goes of randomly all the time, there are no space to be social and the walls are paper thin which makes the noise unbearable!! The accommodation Office is no help at all if you raise any concerns, you are on your own!
