Perfect if you're lazy and you only want a few hundred steps to your lecture theatre. It ticked my main boxes, en suite, self catered and on campus. However there isn't any real social space, just a few uncomfortable chairs and table at the end of the kitchen, not the ideal area for socialising. The main issue that I have with Taylor Court is the noise on certain nights when Asylum is open. As Taylor Court is on campus, when people walk through it on a night before and after asylum, they make a hell of a lot of noise keeping me and others awake all night. I'm not the only person who has had to miss Thursday morning lectures because of a severe lack of sleep on the Wednesday night/Thursday morning. It can be horrendous. Just to hammer home this point, sleep deprivation is actually a "non touch torture" technique used by the American at Guantanamo Bay and I can see why it worked, I would confess to crimes I didn't commit just to get some sleep some nights.

A bit small room with a good wardrobe and bathroom at least mine was because when I lived there 2 years ago not all rooms and floors were the same. Bad radiator and bad insolation in the kitchen, some of draws were falling apart in the kitchen. The insolation wasn't that good in my bedroom either. All this was in the Driffield house.

If coming to the university of hull after 2016/2017 do not stay in Taylor court, the rooms have silverfish and the uni doesn't do anything to help, it's not worth the amount you actually pay, yes it's a good distance from the uni if you want to roll out of bed straight into a lecture theatre but the Taylor court flats are so old and have damp.

Internet is decent enough for survival, it's clean and near enough to not have to wake up more than 5 minutes before a lecture. There's not much room for socialising even in the kitchen, but I'm not a social creature so it's fine.

For five thousand six hundred pounds a year, it would be reasonable to expect washing machines that don't leak, toilets that don't overflow and a kitchen, that's been "renovated" this year, that has adequate space for all residents. Aside from these minor details, it's perfect. The showers have a brilliant range of temperatures: turn the dial a millimetre to the left and experience heat that would put the fires of Mordor to shame, a millimetre to the right and a cold that wouldn't be out of place in the Arctic tundra. The social life is good. Most people are very friendly. Due to the well thought out position of the houses you will be in the unique position of socialising with the whole of the University at 2/3 am as they trundle in a drunken haze through the courtyard outside, on route to the bus stop from the on campus bar. Needless to say, with the extra thin windows, your social life will blossom. The WiFi is as predictable as the president of North Korea.

Machines/Facilites are breaking/malfunctioning that shouldn't. Bin control is a joke, more regular cleaning is needed. Maintenance take their time to come out to repair equipment/facilities.

The cleaner is useless. The WiFi is a laughable excuse for the word. The kitchen is poorly laid out and the appliances, well, they're all f*cked. (many complaints to maintenance result in the square root of f*ck all action being taken)

Good halls for making new friends and socialize. The rooms are too small, cleaning service is decent. Not really worth the money considering that you can get bigger rooms and for much less in Student houses. Good location and en-suite.

Appropriate for students who like to sleep until last minute before lectures as it is a 2 minute walk from most of Hull's lecture halls.

Always a good mix of people in these halls. They are more expensive vs others but its Hull, unless you are hard northerner, everything is cheap. Unlike the local houses - there are no slug or rat infestations so a bonus there also. Its close, its easy, with the saved time its extra time to sleep, study, or recover from a hangover. Its highly sociable given the 8 people common room, but you also have your own space, own shower, decent area to relax in.

Living in student houses allows you to meet people from the same course or similar. Its great for students who have different timetables from the rest of the students such as nurses, drama students, and medicine.

There is no common room to socialize hence everyone stays in their room. The cleaner only cleans the bathroom once a week and the kitchen too. The kitchen is usually left messy and the bin is left

The fact that we have our own bathrooms is nice but that doesn't justify the overall cost per week. There is a lack of any social spaces with the kitchen being the only one. The kitchen has two tables and some chairs, not really ideal for socialising. The location is nice being within a close proximity to the University.

There are some delays on the work and time management. This are bugs and other insects around the floor and lightings. When reports about these, clenaers come but only to clean out. Bithing has been done about the issue such as insect replant or something to aviod them coming back or dieing.

Far too expensive for not a lot given, rent goes up each year but nothing changes. Hardly ever see house tutor and when you talk to him, he's not really bothered.
