The building itself is nothing spectacular, there is no ventilation residents are expected to live in rooms with no open windows throughout the year, rooms are barely even breathable in the summer, staff are extremely rude, miserable and unhelpful. The prices are extremely high, considering this is probably the worst accommodation in the Fresh Student Living company.
I lived in Athena Hall for two years and it was my first time living away from my parents. The move in day was full of issues about an initial payment, and the issues only grew from then on. I had issues regarding fire alarms going off at 2am, not once or twice, but at least once a week. These issues were not resolved in my two years there. Issues regarding ventilation in the rooms was a huge one - you could barely breathe over summer in the flats as there was absolutely no way you would get fresh air through windows which open 2 inches wide. Along with these issues were issues with security who did nothing about rowdiness from people who didn't even live there in the car park who would harass residents, issues with other residents were also not resolved in an appropriate manner. Magnetic locks on doors did not work meaning anyone could walk in, and so long as you paid highly overpriced rent on time, the management did nothing. I would not recommend this accommodation to anyone.
