Most helpful review

Wifi can be slow, cuts out occasionally for maintenance. Harwich is nice but some are not renovated e.g. Brightlingsea and hence have problems with heating, hot water, wet room overflowing etc but most of the buildings are new and in great condition.

Student Review: 3.7 /5
By Jay On 14th July 17 verified Verified student

South Courts was a great place to live as a fresher. The main advantage of South Courts is the proximity to the main facilities on the university campus. Anywhere onsite is within a 10-minute walk maximum and the majority of teaching and lecture buildings are within a 5-minute walk or less. The bedrooms are all ensuite and relatively spacious for University accommodation. There are between 4 and 6 people to a flat, sharing a kitchen. However, there is no common/social area. For a fresher, perhaps the only downfall is the social aspect. It is quieter and has less of a party atmosphere than the Towers. For older students and postgraduates this may be preferable. The weekly rent for South Courts has increased recently. It's an excellent option provided expense is not a concern. Similar experiences can be had in other accommodations for a more reasonable price. (N.B. I lived in Harwich court, South Courts. Friends of mine living in other sections had different experiences)

Very nice halls to live in, it is quite expensive but if you would like to be on campus with an ensuite bathroom and a full size wardrobe then South Courts is the one to choose. South Courts comes in three phases which all have the same rates and I have heard a lot of negative comments. If you would like to choose south Courts I strongly reccomend you choose phase 3 (Harwich or Arlesford Court) as they are the best ones and phase 1 and 2 are different from phase 3. There isn't a common room in South Courts so there isn't much spaces however Harwich Court has a large outdoor space in the centre which you can have a social gathering if the weather is good. Internet and Wifi is okay, we are provided free wifi however there is maintenance every fortnight which results the internet being unavailable for a few hours.
