Read Singer Hall Reviews
Singer Hall is located in one of the most crime infested areas in the country. Walking outside at night, alone, along Canterbury St. or Raglan St. is a death sentence with frequent muggings 'coincidentally' just outside the accommodation on Raglan St. (see here for a reference - [website link removed]). The Protection Services that manage the site are extremely nice but they're by no means capable of dealing with the issue of armed robbery and muggings (to be expected, they're not Police officers and I wouldn't expect them to put themselves in harms way with only a radio). I wish I could say it's just me that's inherently unlucky in this area, but Singer Hall is being targeted for the good reason of that students have expensive things to steal. If you can deal with only going outside on your own in the day as opposed to night, you'll be fine. There will be a massive emphasis on group safety if you're at Singer, for good reason, stick to groups.
So you don't get a common room but honestly it doesn't matter, we just had pre's/parties in the hallway or kitchen and it made for a great time and didn't bother us at all. Singer Hall is deffo the best Cov halls to go with, they are cheapest and the room are surprisingly big. They have amazing protection services who patrol 24/7 and make sure you're safe BUT you don't have to worry about signing people in like other halls, like Liberty Point is gated and needs people to sign in so it's difficult if you pull or have a bf/gf that you want to sleep over. Showers, wifi, water, heating, everything is 10/10. Also pro tip - the door handles work as bottle openers. Have fun, enjoy Singer!
Best year ever! I ve stayed in the superior flat and it s been amazing! Rooms have a lot of storage, furniture it s pretty much brand new. Security were great, friendly, and very very responsive to problems. The location is great and you can get to uni in 5 minutes fast walk and also you re close to city centre and the shops. The cleaners come regularly. Staff is really friendly and always helpful. And if you re lucky enough, your flatmates are going to become soon enough your best mates! Freshers spent at Singer Hall is a must!!!!
All round best choice if you can't decide. You'll think you need a communal space or on suite but you really don't. Staff are great, location is great. You'll thank yourself for only being 200 yards from Kasbar. It took me 6 minuets to get out of bed into my lecture theatre (I actually timed it with a fast walk). Everyone I knew who was not in Singer agreed Singer was overall the best halls for the price.
Singer Hall is by far the best accommodation, there is good security but it's not too tight that you can't have friends over. They deal with problems quickly and fairly, providing vouchers where possible in cases of stolen items / damages. The social side is great, you will befriend your entire block not just your floor.
No social space/common room at all, only the two tiny tables in the kitchen to all sit together. Management of any issues e.g. Appliance breaking, tap broken is poor. -The main door into our block didn't close properly and we were told to wait until the next day to have it fixed which was a big security risk. It's close to the uni. cleaning service is good.
If you're a student coming to coventry and you want the most social halls, Singer Halls is the place to be! Can honestly say I am glad I chose it for my freshers! Despite the lack of a communal area within the flat it is spacious and easily capable of holding a decent pre drinks or party (Believe me we've done it enough). On site security or "Protection Services" as they're known are brilliant, you feel safe and secure, also they're very lenient when it comes to parties. Overall a brilliant accommodation, only complaint I had is that our cleaner did like to moan about us a bit but in all fairness we're freshers it was always gunna be messy! 10/10 Would recommend! P.s Block 38 Rule
Singer Hall is so close to the uni and you can just walk everywhere from there, so no need to spend money on buses/taxis. For what you get it is a bit expensive but it is the cheapest accommodation at Coventry and compared to other universities it's fairly standard. Cleaners come a few times a week so it never gets that bad as long as everyone in your block washes up once a day. The kitchens have really bad seating arrangement so it means it's hard to be sociable but it's something you have to get used to. There is no lounge which is really annoying. There are 2 toilets, a shower and a bath so this is fine for 6 people.
