Featured review

glyder is one of the older buildings and is considerably smaller and not as nice as the new buildings. The new buildings have larger rooms, hallways and a large kitchen with dining space and sofa's. Glyder lacks and social chill space, the dining area is somewhat crammed and uncomfortable. The rooms look a bit prison like. However living here is much cheaper. But you are expected to move out all your things for Easter holiday which is extremely awkward if you don't live near. All of the People in our flat did not apply for Glyder, but as we applied closer to the deadline, there was no space left.

£106 was good value for en suit with maintenance, gas water etc in my opinion. First weekly cleaner was miserable and threw away some posters, the cleaner we have now is lovely but leaves everything on the table still. Kitchen checks can be a pain and to find this isn't done in other Uni's is quite annoying. The hall is mainly clearing and late appliers but everyone is mad and lovely, i wouldn't trade it for another hall.

Lovely halls. Not the newest of friddoedd halls but more spacious and friendly looking than the newest/oldest ones. Good location for uni, security, Laundry and town. Good kitchen which makes socialising easy and warden system is very good too.

In a really good location and facilities were everything you need as a student, experience kind of depends on who you're living with though.

Smart halls which have larger bathrooms than the older halls and modern ! 8 share a kitchen but its fine because there is lots of space and they help you to make friends for life.
