I have given this rate for certain reasons also been a student for 3 years and tried several different accommodations and I have tried the studio room. The place is a complete joke, I couldnt sleep from the loud noises of the trains and quite long walk of 25 minutes to the Forum which is the main building at the university. Furniture is quite old, management is undescribeavle such that you need to pay a fee if you left your keys by mistake in your room after 5 p.m and till 9 a.m the next morning for calling an external security company. The place is remote and when I call it far I mean 30 mins walking to city centre and buses are not frequent. Plus the place is not worth at all what you pay for. Social life is really low and maintenance is literally terrible. Really cant see any point of staying here but would never think about this place.
The place is modern, new and clean. It's around 15 minutes from the main campus of Streatham. The staff were nice but nothing amazing and did not organize any events so it could be hard to met others people except your roomates. There is nothing around except the Esso shop who can provide you some food which is sometimes useful. It's 30 - 40 minutes from the city centre, the only place where you can find foostore. So you either have the choice to take the bus (1,80 pound one way) or to use food Delivery service. Finally, the rent is as expensive as other uni accomodation but which are better located. I would not recommend this place is not well located and you will not enjoy your stay in Exeter as much as if you were staying downtown.
Mansion one was a nice experience. Not much to say. It ran well. I think that the 24 hour store just around the corner mitigated the distance from the city center. There is also a direct bus from the front of the halls to the city center and to the university. It is around 15 minutes walking distance to the business school (An uphill climb through the halls. However if you took the flatter route, it would take you around 30 minutes). The rent is decent and it has been a very international accommodation. This is the best part, as you will meet people and normally become very close friends with people from countries you only heard the name maybe once or twice (Looking at you Suriname) lol
Good plan to live. Rooms are good sizes and the staff are friendly. Location is close to the Uni but far from town - though there is a bus stop just outside and a convenience shop. Social experience was good considering I was in a studio, though not as good as standard halls.
Really not impressed after a year of living there...... You're treated like a customer every step of the way. For wifi, although all residents are entitled to Wi-Fi, you can get "better" Wi-Fi at higher speeds and bandwidth by paying £15.00 a month. Key systems are built so you leave your key in your room and it'll lock you outside automatically. So people rarely leave their rooms, you won't meet anyone outside your flatmates in Mansion Exeter. Location's not bad I guess, and they do clean the corridors, but I really wouldn't recommend this place unless you're beyond desperate.
