In our first year we were just strangers randomly selected to live together. Now we are all bestfriends living together in 3rd year! The best thing about PJM is that it's like a terrace of houses rather than a block of flats. Would definitely recommend!

Eduroam (the wifi across campus) goes down occasionally but that affects everyone and isn't a major issue! PJM is great, right next to campus but as its across the road it doesn't feel like you never get to leave! Some people say it's easier to socialise when living in blocks but we've all found it fairly easy! Living in houses also makes it easier to escape people when you need some time alone as you're living with fewer people.

Perfect if you aren't planning on going to town much, if you are be ready for a hell of alot of walking up and down that hellish hill. The 12GB Internet cap is fine if you dont use a computer or ipod/ipad/etc. much, but if you plan on gaming/streaming loads you're out of luck. The social spaces aren't bad, 1 fridge for 6 is one of my only complaints (and the fact that everything is like 20 years old). If you plan on going to PJM, either go with a group of friends or gamble. All I know is you dont want to be that guy stuck next door to all the noisy ones. Oh and beware of open windows, insects fly in a ton otherwise. Overall I'd say PJM is good for being close to campus, being in a residence being handled by the uni (so they resolve any issues) and good if you plan on spending a ton of time not in town.

Too little fridge/freezer space, no in-house lounge and intrusive numbers of inspections, all for more money than a house in town that is better on those three things makes it poor value for money. Location is good, management are friendly, it's not very difficult to clean and the communal block is lovely. Socially, it's likey any halls where you're put with random people, which is to say pick of the draw on who you live with. One year I was with friendly flatmates, the other I was with a half flat of people I'd chosen to live with and another half who were very difficult to talk to.

It's nice to live in the house with only 5 others! Not a great deal of cleaning needed and there are two toilets, a shower and a bath. However, the rooms are quite small and there isn't a lot of wardrobe space. Would advise bringing underbed storage and really only bringing the clothes you need!

Very nice area which is well kept. It's not quite on Campus so it lets you get away but it is still extremely convenient. Room sizes vary quite a bit but there is plenty of storage and desk space provided.

Good houses to live in and because it is like a housing estate makes great chance for socialising. However a lack of common areas within the house means everyone has to hang out in one persons room, on the stairs or in the kitchen which isn't particularly easy. Also rooms are different sizes 2 large 2 medium 1 small however everyone pays the same which is a little unfair. Yet despite this definitely not a bad halls to live in, many good friends and memories.

My experience in PJM was negative. This was due mostly to being stuck with terrible house mates, but the house had other drawbacks. The toilets barely flushed, and part of the downstairs was flooded for a good portion of my stay, due to a leak. The shower was a pain to use, as it was very cramped and, since I'm so short, I had to stand on tiptoe in a corner to even get wet. There are no locks on the kitchen cupboards, and many of my dishes and supplies were stolen. The fridge-freezer was tiny between 6 people, and I could never keep fresh food in the house because of it. There is no social space besides the kitchen, which did not help with the hostile house mate situation. If you want to live on campus, I would recommend the refurbished Cwrt Mawr or Trefloyne. You get sofas in the kitchen and your own sink in your bedroom, and the refurbished Cwrt Mawr flats have locks on the kitchen cupboards. PJM costs the same, but is much less of a value for money.

Individual rooms in a house. Either 4 or 6 people sharing. Big kitchen, 1 shower, 1 bath and 2 toilets. Would definitely recommend :)

I loved living in PJM and I know plenty of people who loved it so much they went back. I met some amazing people by knocking on doors in Freshers and plus there's no weekly fire drill early in the morning like the flats.

I lived in PJM first year. It was a brilliant way to get into living away from home and still having the home layout rather than a flat. I lived with 5 other people and ended up living with 3 of them for the rest of uni! We made great friends with our next door neighbours too! It's close to campus and has a 24hr computer room.

Overall good accommodation, although I'm not very happy with the people I was put with (not the uni's fault) and the inspectors can be either really nice or really nit-picky and fail you on the smallest little smudges of dirt. Lots of fridge and freezer space (2 fridge/freezers for 5 people) and the rooms are a good size (especially if you're lucky enough to get allocated a twin room to yourself). There are only 2 draws in the room and the heating can be a bit temperamental. Getting to and from the lounge can be a bit of a trek especially if you live on the outskirts of the village, if you want to do laundry and you live nearer the top of the hill it's quicker and easier to do it at Fferm penglais. I have felt a little isolated but I love the fact that there's a bath as well as a shower- which is great considering the shower is pretty naff. It's very good value for money, especially if you qualify for the accommodation bursary. I won't choose to live here again next year though.

2nd year here and this is a great accommodation, most of the reviews here are dated for example you now get 2 fridges so there is plenty of space, the shower is terrible, If you like going to town you better be extremely fit to climb the hill or to have some spare cash for the taxi but most accommodations have that issue, the rooms are great, the kitchen is fine there is the occasional issue that a phone call will get sorted within the hour, this place is like a home without the living room, and your experience will really come down to who you are sharing it with tip - order most of your shopping online will save you a lot of town trip hassles

Don't listen to anyone who says the flats are better, PJM is the best hall save for Fferm Penglais. The individual houses are really good and well placed.
