The best part about the entire accommodation is the onsite bar. Absolutely vile accomodarion, decor was old fashioned and plain. All furnite of cheap quality, including carpets. The worlds noisiest boiler! Sounded like a fog horn. Paid £104 a week to sit in a damp cold room, with mould growing from the taps due to the pipes being so old. The windows were put in so badly that cold and moisture were essentially invited in. Rules and security were a joke. Key problems never fixed e.g. our shower broke and six of us had to share one shower for two weeks! And this shower had black mould growing in the silicon. The only way youd get anything done was via contacting the union. If youre a city campus there is no university buses that can take you there, meaning i paid £45 per month of bus travel. Our flat didnt even have a social space, we had a kitchen table and six chairs, no comfortable seating or anything! The entire block i was in was clearing students inc myself but around 50% didnt care
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
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!
