One of the worst student accommodation halls I have stayed at. Staff are incredibly incompetent beyond belief, the rooms are small and the price of rooms extremely high for what you get. Do not stay here! There are many other decent providers nearby. Avoid at all costs!
Management weren’t great, seemed very disorganised. They kept changing room inspections last minute ie. “oh sorry we couldn’t make it to floors x, y, z today, we’ll come tomorrow...” and then the next day you get another email saying it’ll be done by the end of the week? Also collegelands is right in the middle of two building sites, which we were obviously not told about before moving in! What a racket. The place is also seriously under occupied, it was like a ghost town sometimes, clearly people were smarter than me and decided not to book a room here! WiFi was good.
I have really loved my year at Collegelands - from arrival, the staff are so welcoming and helpful and really helped me meet new people by putting on loads of events and free breakfasts. My room was plenty big enough and I had really great flatmates too, I couldn't fault my time there and can't wait to move back in in September.
The management in this place is the worst I've ever come across.To start off with, we moved into dirty apartments that weren't cleaned. Then for a whole year we had to suffer because a new building was being built next door ( which should've been brought to our notice before we moved in) this essentially ensured that from 7am to 4pm, there was constant drilling and other loud noises. The also gave a couple of rooms to bands that played the bagpipes for a whole month!! And from what I've been told, this happens every year so if you're planning on staying in collegelands during the summer, then don't even bother looking at this place. Wifi is the one and only thing that works like it's supposed to in this place. Oh yeah and our lift broke down once every month and it takes them a few days to fix it at times.
It is disgusting. things break, you have no cleaning service, when i got here all the flat was left dirty from the previous students. the management is absolutely useless. they don't warn you if there is a bagpipe band hosted that plays at the base of the building or if there is a new building construction during the year with drills making the entire flat shaking in the exam period that does not let your rest sleep or study.
Amazing, despite the narrowed room you have enough space to have a lot of things. The kitchens are also very nice and you have also enough space . A wee bit expensive but the conditions are very good and expectations exceeded.
