The worst place I have ever lived. I had issues with people I lived with and staff did nothing to help me. I had to move home because of them.

Definitely over priced for what you get. Limited control over temperature of the rooms/ living rooms.

The social aspect is great, and you do meet a lot of new people. Unfortunately, it does mean living with 11 others, which can cause problems if some are untidy/unclean, or if you don't enjoy being woken up at 5:30am from people coming in after a night out at least 3-4 times a week. The maintenance/management team are okay, but it takes a while, and plenty of complaining, before any issues are solved. Bathrooms are poor, drains are always blocked which leaves the floor dirty and hard to clean up - even after maintenance 'fixing the problem' more than once in the last 4 months of living here. Fire alarms are frequently going off, no matter what time of the day or night. Usually un-intentional and due to being very sensitive. In terms of value for money, I'm shocked the price has increased AGAIN for next year. We currently pay £172 a WEEK to live here, which has gone up to £185. Absolutely not worth the money. One of the only positive aspects being that you're on campus.

For the social part, Carnegie is amazing. In the townhouses, everyone keeps their doors open and this allows people to mix and meet on the green which is really nice and means you get to meet lots of different people! It's also great being so close to lectures and the gym, meaning you're not having to do a 30 minute walk in the morning like you would at Kirkstall. However, the staff are so so slow at getting anything done - a few of us have had issues with needing things fixed and have reported it numerous times but nothing has been done. You also don't get notified when parcels have arrived, so they could be there for days without you knowing. The walls are SUPER thin, you can literally hear your neighbour cough. Living with 11 other people means the communal areas can get really messy and the inspections every Wednesday is probably the only time it'll be fully clean and tidy. Fire alarms go off allllllll the time and there's virtually no phone signal at all! Not worth the money imo

Definitely not worth the £172 a week price. Being on campus is great and the social aspect of meeting so many people is brilliant - living with 11 others however, not so great if you get stuck with very noisy or messy people. Some flats have no respect or courtesy for noise at 2am on a Wednesday morning which can be an issue, especially as it can get so warm in the rooms that you can’t sleep with the window closed. Maintanence can take some time to resolve an issue, other times problems are dealt with fairly quickly. Overall the experience so far has been sub-par, in my opinion.

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.
