Terrible. It was meant to be built for September 2016 but as of January 2017 it's still not finished. We were expecting social spaces, study rooms etc which have not been completed. We don't even have a laundry room. We do have 2 days a week where laundry is collected, washed and returned but often items (and sometimes whole bags in my case) don't return. Builders regularly have access to our rooms to complete tasks which is simply inconvenient if I am busy when they arrive (we never know the exact time when this will occur either). Building noise has been dreadful. At present we are paying full rent and are currently only expected to receive £50 worth of compensation for weeks on this building site (and the payments have been 'processing' for weeks). Of course this is not likely to be a problem for students living there next year but the worst thing is how inefficient the management system is. Emails are hardly ever replied to, phones are rarely answered. We have not been treated well
Management definitely have their favourites and if you're not one of them they can be quite bitchy. The security/ maintenance staff on the other hand are amazing; so friendly and make you feel at home. Definitely overpriced; the social area doesn't have proper sofas and the tv is tiny. Great place for parties so very noisy all the time.
If it wasn't for the friends I made halls would not have been an enjoyable experience. Couldn't get access to Internet unless you were connected to walk on your laptop. Beds were uncomfy and so was the communal space in each flat.
The staff are really quite bitchy- they all have their favourites. Excellent location, although you pay an arm and a leg for quite a basic flat. The same price could find you a lot nicer flat with actual sofas!!! and a decent sized TV.
