If you live with the right people it'll be an amazing experience. It is the furthest from campus but the closest to Tesco and Town. I loved living in there but the only social space was the kitchen area which was enough if you got along with everyone.
It was a blast living here. The Facebook groups created during the summer made it very easy for people to get to know each other before moving in. So that from the first day of freshers flatparties were easy to organise. They did however often get shut down, not that we cared though. THE BRIDGE... IS A BITCH !!! The wifi is amazing, all I can say. The almost daily fire alarms during the whole year were a real pain as they would force you to leave your seat for at least 20 minutes at pretty much any time of day (sometimes even early in the morning). Turns out though that it was students deliberately setting them off so hopefully that is not like that every year. There isnt really a common room like in other accomodation so people just hang out in the kitchens that can be quite big or in students rooms. Campus is 10 minutes away but the bridge will often keep you from getting up for your 9ams. All in all the quays was really nice. P.S.: smoke outside, whatever it may be, trust
Quays is lovely. I share a couples room with my boyfriend and we have the most stunning view of the river - as most quays students do! I definitely prefer living around here, I think being on campus 24/7 might become rather tedious. Quays students have the Wivenhoe trail (which is just beautiful), we're closer to town, we have dominos/subway and we are only 5 minute walk from Tesco and Coop. Most of the people I have met here are pretty friendly, I know a lot of people have flat parties etc. I am a third year student so I prefer to be a bit less sociable than others. It is quieter than other Uni Halls but if you're the type of person who likes a bit of peace and quiet from time to time then Quays will be perfect for you.
The quays accommodation is so bad the older.members of staff are so rude and lazy sometimes you hear them say c*nt his c*nt that about other staff and its so disrespectful a complete overhaul is needed I lived in mq4 and I mean the block was disgusting was never maintained the clearers a are average just so shocking for the money i payed
Lived here for my first year at university and despite the walk across the bridge being a small hindrance, I loved the social aspect of the accommodation :) plus having an ensuite in your room is worth the extra money you pay as it gives you a more relaxed accommodation experience, would definitely recommend for new students who don't mind the extra walk :)
