Lived here first year, so close to city campu, you can roll out of bed to your 9ams if you make them. Close too all the clubs etc too. Wifi never dropped out during endless tv binges and Netflix n Chilling. Gym is basic but decent, and the flat parties are good social opportunities. Only small issue is the homeless gathering every morning by the bins.

I'm currently living in the plaza, to be honest it is probably the worst place I've ever lived. The staff are completely useless, they really could not care less about students living here. If you've got a problem, you pretty much deal with it yourself, even if it's life threatening. They take weeks to reply to any email and when you try to book an appointment, it's not the easiest thing. I would not recommend this to anyone who is serious about their education and wellbeing as it is the worst place to live in.

I stayed in the plaza during my first year at university and to be honest it ruined my university experience! I was placed in a flat with people I found very difficult to communicate and live with and even after complaining several times to the reception staff (who spend more time playing ping pong in the back room and having a gossip rather than helping people out) nothing was done about it. It's completely over priced, I find it disgusting how they can charge the amount of catering halls when they offer nothing for the money (they do not even provide a television in the living area). The social side is ridiculous they have 2 televisions in the common room (I wouldn't even call it that) and they offer a weekly film night (which is mainly filled with the staff gorging on pizza! I have also seen other people trying to find someone to move into their room so they can leave (which the staff do absolutely nothing to help) so i'm clearly not the only person who is unhappy.

the staff are very attentive and will help with any request you have, but sometimes this can be a little over board as they are disrupting vital services, such as water and wifi, in order to make improvements when the services were perfectly adequate to begin with

The Plaza is a fantastic place to live and socialise with lots of different people. It's extremely close to campus making it easier and less stressful to find where you need to be going in the city. from The Plaza it's only a 10 min walk to the main city shopping and there are also supermarkets a 2 min walk away. The only downside to the Plaza is that the staff members don't seem to try and deal with the problems people tell them about if they don't seem serious, for example noise levels from other flats they're not fussed about, even if this is early hours of the morning and it stops you sleeping They just need to approach problems and try to solve them in a better way.

Nice, clean and modern with an unbeatable location. But Wifi easily goes when it rains heavily.

The location was amazing but there was far too many internationals staying there to ruin your student experience. They are loud and rude and most don't speak English. You are able to make friends there but I'm mostly having to travel to Marsden House because the environment there is more suited for a student.

Lived here in first year. It was a fantastic accommodation where I could get to know a smaller group of people, have fun in the big house and also get some sun in the garden during summer!
