Halls are very good for price compared to other uni's with the ensuite and and kitchens being comfortable to live in. There always is a good friendly atmosphere in the halls and has always got something going on.
The halls site is so secure and the staff on site are there 24/7 if you need anything. The facilities on campus are brilliant too and the site itself is only a 10 minute walk from lectures and then another 5 minute walk to get into town
Halls were worse than I had anticipated for student accommodation, when I arrived the room was dirty (vomit on the floor from the previous year), the kitchen was semi broken, the oven didn't work, the fridge didn't stay cold, the freezer didn't freeze, some of these issues were fixed but not most. For the price they are certainly not as nice as you would hope, The wardens for each hall are sometimes good but mainly complain about things that are trivial (dishes being dirty when you are washing them at the time, a single wrapper left on the side for five minutes, things like that). The social aspect is the best with the Bar being only minutes from the flat, but in all the large flat size with students constantly changing rooms and leaving university (exchange students) leads to a rather negative experience. The wardens don't help as they force flatmates to push blame for mess onto others etc.. I would say it was like any basic student accommodation and is only short term.
