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.

Seething Wells is utter s***. Do not, if you're a first year, move here expecting anything. The rooms are small, bland and basic. The beds are uncomfortable, There's a good social experience if you want to meet friends, but there are no social spaces for you to sit in. (Common room is small and uninviting. The cleaning charges are so dumb, considering people living here at 18 and up. You'd be better off moving somewhere cleaner and nicer for slightly more money.

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

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.
