Read Kirkstall Brewery Reviews
I'm a university of Leeds student so was a bit annoyed being placed here, but I had a great time at Kirkstall as I've befriended everyone in my block as most of the other university of Leeds students reached out to each other before moving in, so we were determined to make the most of our time here, so for me the social aspect is good, however, I don't really socialise with people from other blocks. The main reason I'm leaving is due to the location (buses are not reliable and ubers are at times expensive, plus we all go to city centre whenever we go out) , and to be around more people from uni of Leeds. I'm moving to a different accomodation so I can't be sure that my opinion would have held throughout the entire first year. I also can't really speak much for other Beckett students' experiences Wouldn't recommend it as a first choice, but if you are placed here (even as a uni of leeds student) it isn't so bad. Laundry is also unnecessarily complicated and can be expensive
THIS PLACE IS LIKE PRISON. The washing mashines dont work/tumble dryers shrink stuff. The staff are assholes. The rooms are tiny. The wifi is so slow. Its so far from anything i.e the centre is an hour walk if not longer. If you can think of a place thats furnished by tesco value products then this is your place. Do not come here
Management team aren't helpful and do not like to address problems (they just work their way around it) Majority of the buildings have not been refurbished so there are still damp stains and mould Decor is very plain and almost looks like a prison hence why the ensuite bathroom is ridiculously small Heating goes off and on (was sat with 3 jackets on at one point during my stay!) Do not expect to become best friends with your flatmates because if they say they'll clean they probably won't Buses to and from Kirkstall Brewery are never on time so you're always late for lectures and seminars Also if you ever have a problem don't expect management/residential officers to speak about your issues privately, they do it in an open room!
