I lived in C5, it was on the top floor which was great but there's no lift. The flat itself was huge, we had a spacious common area. The rooms themselves are a little dated but decent sized. Only thing is some are bigger than others because of the shape of the flat - so you may end up paying the same for a slightly smaller room. The reason I've given hall management 3 stars is that our boiler literally blew up and we had no hot water for 9 weeks. We had to keep asking for alternative showering arrangements, and only after taking our case to the person in charge of halls did we get compensation. Other than that, the halls were clean, spacious and good value for money compared to others in the area.
