This place is like home from home, warm, clean and the staff really care about you, had a few issues with my mental health and got all the support and more from the manager and the wellbeing staff, wouldn't have stuck it at uni without these wonderful people, love the social events and free trips to cities for shopping and culture, I will come back next year as the support is worth every penny, wouldn't get that from a landlord !!
Returning students have the option of a flat with washer/dryer private tv lounge and mini fridge.first years have to pay in the launderette. This is expensive over the year, car parking is free at Derby yet £300 a year at Buxton.same university different rules.
Amazing place, so friendly, town is small but who needs shops when we've got amazon, great events and free trips, cool common room for parties and the manager is so helpful with a brilliant team to keep the place clean and well maintained.
Had a great year, it is kinda expensive compared to private housing but it's worth it! Lots of support from all staff who are very friendly (and they know what they're doing - my mate went through an awlful personal experience (not at uni) and halls staff supported them so much - they deserve an award). Wifi is sometimes a bit hit and miss but we get emails saying when maintenance is being carried out, overall it's very good. Recommend.
I'm living in halls next year too and because I'm coming back I have got an offer including free clothes washing and drying, a private tv lounge for my flat mates and me, a mini fridge in my room and more. Halls also has a massage practice which which has saved my £100s as I can book it out for free to Harri orectuce for my degree - normally I would have to buy one myself.
Beds are horrible, it's always warm which is a positive, the management check on your social media profiles, for the money you are spending it's not really worth it. The cleaning of the general areas in the flats is basic, unless it is spotless already they won't do anything which defeats the object of paying for it. Security is good. Common area is s*** nothing decent in there tbh and it's to small to be able to make it decent anyway!
Loved my time at Halls! The staff are amazing, are so supportive and go above and beyond in every way possible, is literally 5 minutes away from The Dome (the teaching campus) and is 2 mins away from the shops. It is relatively expensive but I have chosen to remain in halls for the entirety of my degree - a decision I am glad I made as my friends moved to private landlords and had a nightmare. Have started to employ social reps so a lot more events are being put on now when compared to my first year. I would stay again if I could but I'm graduating this summer!
tiny bathrooms, the rooms are always freezing and the beds rock solid. Rooms are big and have lots of storage. Location is great only a minute from the town centre and five from the university. Only a small campus so you know everyone.
