Read Seething Wells Reviews
I never write reviews, but I had to give my opinion. Seething wells halls is terrible especially if your doing an MA. Don't go there. I have stayed in a budget ensuite room and its too small even for me- I didn't have loads of stuff to begin with. Also my shower room has NO shower curtain so the whole toilet, sink, floor gets flooded. I literally have to move the toilet roll every time I go for a shower. The cleaning schedule is a money making scheme- you have to clean once a week regardless if you've got an exam the next day or if your on a busy MA course- if not you get charged £20. Reception are useless- when I asked for a shower curtain and asked if I could clean on my day off instead because I was revising well into the night they refused to help. The worst thing is the noise. If your a first year who has time to sleep during the day, it might be ok, but the lack of soundproof doors, the tiny corridors and thinnest walls mean that you get woken up if your flatmate merely coughs
Total piece of shit in every way. Only a place for immature little shit-heads who wants to kill their braincells and liver, and the staff act like their power has gone too much to their head. I have not had a single peacefull night here, because of these stupid, irrisponsible little brats, who apparently still need their mummy to tell them off. Not to mention firealarms going off all the time, maintenance crew just barging into your flat without knocking, everything is filthy and broken until you report it and it gets done halfassed. Do NOT bring your kids here (I say kids because apparently that's the appropriate term for this, even though they are supposed to be 18 years or over). Nothing like this was in the halls licence, I did NOT sign up for this. SHIT!
Seething Wells is way overprized for what you get. Thin walls without any isolation. Heating broke down on a weekly basis, often no hot water ether. Staff was not helpful at all. Repairs rarely took place. Rooms have wall to wall carpet which is not a good thing in a place with different students living in there each year. Do not get a budget room, they are so narrow you can barely move. Bathrooms are basically just small plastic boxes in which it is hard to shower or do any other "bathroom stuff".
It needed stricter procedures for disruptive flatmates, such as theft and noise after midnight. The whole NTQ process is dragged out and there is often a lack of resolution. The doors and walls need better insolation, you can have a conversation through them.
I had a great time at halls but all the flats need updating (especially the kitchens) - especially since they did SOME of them but charged the same amount of money to everyone. Quite far from Uni but there were free buses and was a nice location to be.
