Nice looking bedrooms, kitchens are a farce, nowhere to prepare food. Insufficient cupboard and fridge/freezer space. WiFi barely works. No social space, not even an SU bar on site, nearest shop is an hours bus ride (there and back) There is a beach though, even if it does smell of raw sewerage and chemicals from the steel-works around the corner.

- Old buildings - Tiny rooms - You can't really open the windows - Rooms are very very warm and you cannot control the temperature - Depressing campus around - Kitchens are yack with ridiculous facilities - One toilet shower for 5 people ridiculous price for what you get - remote Uni and no supermarkets close by

Leonard Horner halls are definitely the best halls on campus. Least expensive and they are close to everything, from student union to bus stops and main building. Sure, you share a toilet room and shower room but that's between 3 other people. You barely notice. Everyone in Leonard Horner pretty much becomes friends fairly quickly because it's just so easy, especially with the lounges.

Pantry situation for A block is appalling - 70 students sharing 2 pantries, food going missing all the time. Not even allowed a toaster - why??? Staff offer no sympathy for this Cleaners made a mess of my room one night when I was away - with no explanation. Dumped a bucket of something down my sink and toilet. A block do not have access to a lounge, even their own, takes priority for 'conferences'. Only pro is the ensuite with glass cabinet shower. Want good value for money? Go IQ or mansion.
