The majority of my time on halls wasn't enjoyable. It cost too much for very little; limited cleaning facilities, no WiFi (we had to go through ethernet) and nowhere near enough events for non drinkers. The kitchen equipment was very dated and it was a struggle to get new appliances. Student reps arrived at halls a lot to get first years to go out drinking, but as a quiet person who really did not want to, I felt I was pressured to the point of locking myself in my room. However, the location was very good and the kitchen area was big enough for the amount of residents per flat.

There's no communal space for everyone, other than the kitchen, which would be nice and one of the accommodation officers isn't very nice at all. Also they don't do any cleaning and complain when the kitchen is clean.

You pay for the whole academic year, at not a too bad of a price, but paying this money you would think that the radiators would work when you move in, that there is a grill handle included when there says there is one and for the oven to work correctly. The rooms are a nice size The bathroom could be a little bit bigger e.g the size of the sink and shower but very nice overall and manageable.

Very convenient to be on campus and close to town meaning theres no need for a taxi on a night out. As for nightlife everyone who likes to party seems to stay at Denton- Carrock is definitely quieter.

Overall okay experience for my first year at university. Didn't really like being put with people on my course as it meant seeing one another constantly and caused a lot of drama. Also I said I wanted to live in a mixed sex flat and was put in an all female flat which was awful, so bitchy and nasty and met people who I never ever want to see again which shouldn't happen in halls at all. Value for money is okay, en suite but a double bed would be better. No wifi just a Ethernet cable so had to constantly be sat at desk to use the internet. Brilliant location on uni campus, very clean blocks. Social experience what you expect for uni in Cumbria haha. Communal kitchen okay, could use an extra oven and fridge/freezer as seven people to one oven is quite a lot. Overall okay experience in carrock purely due to the people I was placed with but it is a risk you take.

It has good and bad sides The en suite bedrooms are a bonus however the social side of the halls are not very accommodating
