I could go on forever about how poor this accommodation is but sadly there’s a character limit so I’ll stick to bullet points. -Location is not ideal, miles away from uni, be prepared to spend your student loan on Uber’s, don’t know why people are saying it’s ideal at all, believe me it’s not. -Nowhere near as social as other/bigger accommodations, you’re miles better off at Plaza/Marsden/Arena Village for this -Management is awful, reception is barely open, problems are never sorted or dealt with and response rate is awful, no cleaner facilities. -Minimal communal/social areas, see Plaza/Marsden for these as they’re really poor here -Constant noise due to the ambulance station and the construction site behind the building. Couple of good points are the big Tv and washing machine that are provided per flat, and no complaints about the WiFi...However I would avoid this accommodation if you have a choice, worst mistake I ever made regarding university and I suffered because of it.
Literally the best place to live in first year. The kitchen facilities are amazing and the sitting room is nice with big sofas and a huge telly. Didnt have an ensuite but it didnt matter as 5 of us share two bathrooms nd never waited to use the bathrooms. Room is big and homely and internet is outstanding. Location is the best in the uni 15 min walk to campus and 10 mins to clubs town etc. VERY social be warned - noise may be an issue but i use earplugs for sleep and its been fine. Gym downstairs and 1 min walk to gateway shop. Had some amazing memories here - no question the best halls in beckett.
Can’t fault Mill Street for its location and the flats themselves aren’t too badly decorated. From what I can gather though, the size of the room you get varies massively depending on whether you get a four/five/six person flat. I was in a four person and my room was twice the size as the girls rooms in a five person flat just across the hall. It’s a great place to meet people, very very sociable, which is ace during freshers but s*** the rest of the year when there’s constant noise and people running around banging on your door at 4am midweek. The noise from the construction company behind Mill Street isn’t great either. I’ve been woken at 8am by them loads. When we moved in the flat wasn’t very clean at all. I had to fully clean my bathroom before using and the kitchen looked as though it hadn’t been cleaned prior to us moving in. You could tell the flats hadn’t been fully inspected before we moved in as they tried to blame us for damamges caused by previous tenants.
love it here, it's so social. all my mates have ended up staying over already cos they wish they'd come here too, and are elsewhere in the city centre, halls much quieter, it's not noisy here as such, but just really social so if you don't have a lot of money you can sesh on next door or upstairs.
I love it here! Fab new refurbishment and I mite be wrong but I think the only halls with all double beds and proper showers like not a tiny wet room. Real sociable but my flats fairly quiet cos I put down half and half on the social side. Parents came and they're well impressed too.
Mill street is the best place to live as a student in Leeds, it's cheap, in a fab location and the best thing is there is no curfew if you like to party (unlike all other halls). It's not all high tech but you pay for good living accomodation and the flat becomes homely, it also has its own washer/dryer meaning you don't have to treck out to do washing! If I was to improve it is say to put a shop and a cash machine in reception!
Perfect! firstly you have a washing machine in the front room and it's also only 10 minutes into town! Such a sociable building and also has a gym downstairs. Reception staff are really helpful and friendly and the general size and style in the rooms are perfect. Also double beds! And really good ensuits! Just the best place to live in first year!
For the person that has come to University solely to get drunk every night, roll in at 8am, get 20 minutes kip and then go in half-cut for lectures, Mill Street is perfect. The noise is constant through the night, flat parties, deafening music. Not to mention people knocking on your door at ridiculous hours, or a personal experience of someone knocking to see if I was in (which I ignored as I was trying to sleep) and then actually trying to break into my personal room. If you are somebody that values more than an hour-a-night's sleep, and that doesn't want to go out every night, this is not for you, as it is not for me. I do like to go out, maybe once a week. I do value sleep, however, and in my first 4 nights I have got about 7 hours, despite the fact I have only been out once. I have much much more to say but unfortunately I have used the maximum character count.
