Don't stay here, seriously!!!! Didn't read the reviews before I moved in, seriously regretted it! You'll get black mould in your room, flies, bugs. Police visit almost constantly to check for drugs. Miles away from anything, the walk to campus takes way too long and the nearest shop is a tiny, overpriced little garage. Beds are uncomfortable and awful, wifi cuts out for days at a time, no social space, terrible value for money! Don't stay here! Go somewhere else!
Really good value for money. Our toilet seat broke and they replaced it with no charge. Our shower broke (twice), but they still replaced it with no charge! Also quick thing to note: the hot water never ran out, so showers at 4pm are kind of encouraged. The WiFi is good when it works, but it would occasionally drop out for a day at a time, roughly every 2 months or so. The Ethernet connection was solid though and never dropped out. Both wireless and wired got about 30MB/S download and 5MB/S upload. The rooms were great! Having your own sink is so useful. You didn't hear it from me, but if you needed to piss and someone was in the toilet, well, it worked as a good substitute. The kitchen is small, but you make do. It's pot luck whether you get a kettle and a toaster, two toasters, or two kettles. The hobs are a little slow the heat up, but as far as I'm concerned the oven worked absolutely fine. Overall pretty happy with the place. Defo the best accommodation for the money.
The state of this accommodation is actually disgusting. I’m genuinely shocked that they get away with it. Upon moving in, the kitchen and bedroom were filthy, this meant they needed a deep clean before I had even used any of the facilities, not the warmest of welcomes. Despite paying the same rent as my flat mates, I had the worlds smallest bedroom, furniture was badly placed and couldn’t be moved as “carpet” had been fitted around the wardrobe. Bugs often came under the bathroom floor. The drain in the shower didn’t work properly and this resulted in me having to remove hair and conditioner from the drain every day. If you’re going to move in, bring a lamp because the lighting is dismal and pointless. The kitchen facilities are a disgrace, not enough storage space at all. The fridge and freezer were stupidly small, our freezer had 3 drawers for 5 people, this meant regularly going shopping and buying little amounts of food otherwise there would be no room. unsociable. Dirty. Drugs.
Covid-19: They have waved the last rent instalment, but haven’t yet given us any information regarding collecting our belongings, and have moved other residents in, including families, as emergency housing.
Upon arrival, the rooms were filthy and needed to be deep cleaned, which wasn’t the best welcome. The most unsociable accommodation possibly ever? Nowhere for you to socialise, no sofas, nothing, rooms are a disgrace, bugs came from under the floor. Too far from both campuses with no guidance on how to get there. Inadequate facilities. Unhelpful staff. I had a tiny room, but have seen other rooms at sugarwell that are bigger. Completely overpriced, dirty, and full of drugs.
Covid-19: They have waved the last rent payment which was helpful, however it did take a lot of pushing from students and their parents. We haven’t yet been given any guidance on when we’re allowed to collect our belongings.
it’s not as bad as you probably think and most people here cam through clearing as it was the only accommodation available and probably didn’t want it either so that helps. It’s bareable, thought it would be horrible not having an en suite but you just get used to a shared bathroom after a while. our flat had a broken toilet when we arrived and the window didn’t shut, but maintenance are great and do come and fix problems quickly they just tend to break again though. Had problems with no hot water and heating too and sometime mould but easily cleaned. It’s not amazingly social, but you have ur flatmates and if you want to socialise freshers week is definitely the time to do it and courtyards good for that. It’s not the best location it’s a 30/35 minute walk uphill to get to city campus but I ended up getting Uber’s for uni and nights out. About 20 mins from affordable shops like Aldi but asda delivery worked for me. Rooms basic so can be decorated to be cosy and homely.
Overall Sugarwell Court was a miserable experience due to the awkwardness of the location, the disregard of the staff who were supposed to maintain it and the prevelance of drugs of which the staff had knowlege of and did nothing. Do not recommend! Go to Kirkstall instead, at least it's close to a train station.
A bit out the city centre (approx 20-25 minutes walk) but regular bus service into the city and to headingley plus there is always Uber or Amber Cars. Basic facilities, you get what you pay for, some members of the ground team can be problematic but overall they’re generally really helpful and will deal with any issues appropriately.
Not too bad, there aren’t really any social spaces apart from the Lounge and nobody really goes there, so your kitchen is kinda it. If you’re on a budget it’s great, just know it’s a 20 minute walk minimum to city campus/anything local and buses are horrendous... Also, some staff are lovely, like the main lady on reception (Natasha I think she’s called) but there’s a few members of “security” who will tell you off over the smallest of things - we were sat talking in the kitchen and bang-on midnight a guy came up to our window, knocked on, scaring us, and told us to close all our windows and keep it down, when the flat above was blasting music. If you can deal with that and the minimal washing facilities you’ll be fine! It’s honestly not as bad as everyone makes out, there’s good parking and my room’s pretty big, we just didn’t have hot water in the taps for a while lmao
I've only been here 2 weeks, but don't let the price entice you into staying here. The walls are paper thin, the kitchens are absolutely vile and the social space is a joke. 30 minutes to city campus is terrible, as are the buses. It's actually faster to walk. Do. Not. Stop. Here.
Value for money is absolutely appalling, might aswell have lived a year in a cardboard box. Location litrally miles from anywhere in the most decolate end of Yorkshire, the money u save by coming here u will deffo spend on Uber’s to get to anywhere, no shops bar a garage that sells absolutely nothing, and what they do sell is overpriced. Hall management is an angry Scottish bloke who gets on your case if you cough above 3 decibels. Cleaning... what cleaning, there is no cleaners at all social space, there is non in the flat, there is an old outdated lounge area filled with old broken sofas from the 80’s, in purple :( this place is socially backwards, there is no social life what so ever. The WiFi is great for the 1 hour of the day that it works. You have to bring your own toaster, kettles are covered in grimescale. Outside there is ants on the floor everywhere. My mattress litrally has springs coming through it !! The buildings all smell weird. A positive is there is hedgehogs about!!!
If you want to stay in an Ensuite its worth your money. Theres a carpark you thats secure. Every friday there is a fire alarm at 9:40am so be prepared. very antisocial but payin 118£ for ensuite is cheapest you will get. most my pals are payin 160 a week.
One of the worst accommodations (IMO) for Uni of Leeds / Beckett. Try your best to avoid Sugarwell Court. Not many social events / empty rooms meant that it was hard to socialise, long walk to Uni (mostly uphill). Boring, dingy area with nothing going on.
Beautiful outside the building and in the courtyard. Rooms are basic and old with signs of ware... But not too bad for what you're paying. Location is in the middle of both campuses, about a 40 minute walk to each. Generally quite a noisy building (especially during freshers) and the walls are paper thin. Staff enter flat without knocking or announcing themselves so expect random people just coming in at any time. The taps in our kitchen are terrible, no water comes out at first until you turn it so much and then it bursts out. Also the radiator in my room doesn't work!
The rooms are actually quite big compared to what you get in other halls however the majority of the rooms here do not have ensuite toilets and only have single beds, which is probably why they are bigger than other halls. Receptions always really helpful and repairs are done quickly. The halls aren't in the best location, it's a 30 minute walk to the city campus and longer to headingley campus. Overall I wouldn't stay here again, not because of the rooms themselves but because I was unfortunate enough to have to live with the worst flatmates you could possibly imagine
