Fab location and really nice modern halls. However it is luck of the draw how big your kitchen will be and how awful your view will be (a brick wall is mine). Also the amount of communal charges this year has been ridiculous, paying a lot of money for things being broken in the common room when I've never actually been in the common room.

Not the place to go if seeking a lively social scene. Would be useful during the application process to have the option to fill out for example, a personal questionnaire based on personality/interests etc so like minded/similar people can be placed together in one flat. Also, be aware of mice (at beginning of term at least , I moved out so don't know how the issue was solved). Cleaning staff superb and rooms are nice and spacious! Great location (5 mins walk from uni)

Brilliant accommodation, although its a little pricey! Doesn't have much of a social aspect but in terms of location and decor it is second to none.

These halls are lovely and very modern - however the number of fines that are handed out for the smallest of things such as hanging up fairylights or using bluetac are ridiculous. It is also annoying that despite paying over 5 thousand pounds to stay here, there is STILL a charge for using the laundry facilities.

Over-bearing managers who charge you at every opportunity they can (e.g. having too many unclean and clean dishes on you work surface). No sense of community. Builders coming and going all the time in your flat. We even had a random man come in, put a poster down for a club and leave. Not sure who controls the keys. We had a mouse for ages (like many residents) and were then blamed for that and threatened charges. I do not recommend. Sure the location is great and it's nice that it's new but even with that, we had issues with things falling apart because they were put up in a rush. I was incredibly disappointed and I still keep getting charges taken from me automatically for communal costs (some silly people making a mess in the common room/on the stairs near my flat) and I was charged for them (along with everyone nearby) even though we had nothing to do with it. I even heard the staff complaining about us "ungrateful students" too.
