Spent first year here whilst studying at the Headingley Campus. Writing this whilst in second year, and I have many fond memories with friends whilst in Carnegie Village. Such a lovely area to live in, facilities were fantastic; being so close to such an awesome university campus was a bonus. Will always hold a place in my heart for the place. Thank you for being my wonderful home as a university fresher.

The general quality of the flat is very poor with signs of wear and tear everywhere. We've had many problems with things breaking and with the quality of the facilities. When I arrived my room and en suit was dirty and had dents in walls, drawers and in the desk. Living and kitchen area is very small for up to 12 people and has limited storage space and only two small sofas. Have had to contact maintenances a lot in 6 months for many problems with the flat. Location is good for uni but not close to anything else. The on-site laundry room is very expensive to do washing and drying and does not come loaded with detergent as stated on their site. There is 24h security which is good but there are a lot of fire drills from as early as 6am. They find a way to charge you for everything, definitely not worth £6,600 a year!!

Really nice accommodation, almost like a hotel. It's great for socialising and you'll get to meet lots of awesome people. The on-site location is great especially if you need access to the campuses recourses e.g. recording studios, specialist IT labs etc. However it has its downsides: - Fire alarms are far too frequent, sometimes going off in the early hours of the morning. - The WiFi is unreliable and signal strength varies alot. - Cupboard space in the kitchen is limited however just about manageable if your store some of your food items in your room. - It is currently £2.40 per wash, they also charge for drying. - The radiators are turned of at night. - The doors to the rooms are not sound isolated at all. Everything that happens in the corridor can be heard and vice versa. - The beds are very hard so you'll need to invest in a mattress topper. The size of the beds are also a little odd, so keep your receipts in case your need to return them.

Good halls! Very friendly staff but the wifi was a bit rubbish and the fire alarms were far too frequent and annoying.

i found to frequent fire alarms annoying and unessesery, espeshily when they are going off at 1am, i also don't think it is work anywhere near £6,200 a year, given the choice i would not stay there again, as I'm paying that enormous fee, and I'm sits expected to pay an additional £5 to wash and dry my clothes. I also found that 12 people is a lot to share with, and if there are (there 100% will be) people whom don't get on it causes uncomfortable dynamics in the flat, speaking to people who shared with 4-6 people they all seamed to have a much more enjoyable experience.
