Halls are run as a community so you get to make a lot of friends. There is the facility for overnight stays but just need to check this out beforehand. Staff are friendly and helpful and security is very useful. Rooms are all en suite and have a lot of storage space which need to be seen to be fully appreciated as larger than they look on the site. Location is close to the train and bus links and only a 20 minute walk or 15 minutes by bicycle. City Gates is very close for entertainment and the possibility of part time jobs.
5 minutes from the station. 2 mins from chi gate which is where the cinema and reaturants are. 10 minutes from town. 30 mins from uni. Good halls. Security on duty 24/7 - however downside is you can't have people stay over
I think it is very expensive for what you get. They're nice buildings, but the showers are like swimming pool showers and clog easily, you can't have friends stay and the rooms aren't exactly the biggest. Everything is very clean, but this is only subject to the very strict inspections that will result in a fine if it isn't up to the highest standard. The location isn't great if you want to live by the uni, but it's next to the train station and Bowling etc so it's not too bad. The common room is good with TV's and sofas, but after the rent we pay we are expected to pay for the pool table too which can become quite expensive. But it's good fun because of the people you meet :)
