Don't even bother. The rent is so high for such a small town, and because of this the people from the accommodation office will constantly be in your room, or your living room "inspecting". They will fail you on everything. I don't think that they realise that these are student flats, they cannot expect us to live in a sanitary environment close to an operating theatre, but alas they do. To add to this, the accommodation office claim that they will be there at your beck and call to help you with your every need but by god they are the most patronising and ignorant bunch of people. I don't want to name names but the head of the campus life team is useless. We had a real problem with someone in our flat not cleaning and we were told to "check our attitude." The accommodation itself is very cheaply built, the ovens and kettle and fridges and electrics and fan and bathroom lights and blinds have all broken. The only good thing is that everyone is in the same boat and hates it equally
Really modern accommodation with lots of storage space! You get 2 sinks, 2 fridges and 2 induction cookers in the kitchen as well as enough cupboards to have 2 each and a few left over which my flat used as over flow. You're a ten minute walk from campus and depending on how fast you walk a 20ish minute walk from town, but Ow's taxis are only a £1 each if you have 3 or more people in their car/van. The resident support team come around a few times to check that everything is okay and that you're settled, the security guards are always wondering around and so far none of them have been rude that I have met. Also the dishwasher is amazing! The only downfall to this accommodation I would say is that because you can't fully open windows you just have a vent, the rooms get very dusty and in the kitchen/lounge you don't have blinds to the giant window, so people walking passed see right in, but they're just really picky points that are silly because it's the best hall in Aberystwyth!
Rooms are an amazing size with enough storage all around. Shower is bloomin' brilliant and the kitchens are beautiful. The only downside is there isn't a single drawer in the kitchen for cutlery and a blind is needed in the kitchen!
Penglais farm is some kind of new beacon of hope for Aber. Whilst some of the other halls resemble a popular nazi death camp, the new addition to our glorious town stands a top the hill, hidden behind the old student village. Finally getting a much needed upgrade from the town planners first drunken attempt at a student village we now have areas with benches outside, and plants and trees to brighten up the place, instead of scrubs of grass and 10 million s***** terraced blocks of houses. Inside you'll have brand new kitchens with and induction hobs. That's right, new technology crapping all over the pans you stole off your mum that now permanently smell of bacon making them totally useless! And of course who could forget the full length windows! Joking aside its a really nice.
It's not worth the money. If you're coming in 2015 expect a thick layer of dust, hollow walls, loud noise builders looking through your floor to ceiling windows and showers that refuse to maintain their temperature. Also Block 1 to 4 will probably have swarms of dead flies in all the lights. It's also miles away from town with a 40 minute walk and a 20 minute walk to campus, which is not good for such a small town.
