Cold and echoey really depressing and grey and hard to socialise with people. Also really bad sound proofing and not very good value for money.

If you get a shared studio, is there an option for two beds rather than one? Is there a floor plan of the rooms? How likely is it I will get the shared studio? How do my friend and I apply together?
By member1131564 On 7th May 18

Q
If in C block, how loud is the dual carriageway if you're on the top floor?
By member631464 On 26th April 18
I was in D block, 10th floor on top of the motorway and could barely hear the traffic. Much better window glazing than the Tannery at least! Couldn't open windows on that side of D block which was annoying

Lovely flat, modern, clean and secure. Perfect location for university and to pop into town. Only thing was there wasn’t much use of the common room or socialising between blocks compared to other halls

ok, this is going to be a very honest review. i was advised to go to CV by a friend, however my experience has been unsatisfactory, and i'm not the only one. Firstly, it is VERY unsociable. As in, noise curfew, no socials, no balls, no events that help you get to know others. Apart from my flatmates i know two other people in this building, the way the building is designed is extremely unsociable. AND IM NOT THE ONLY PERSON TO THINK THIS. Secondly, the price is astonishing. I was given the largest (most expensive) room in the flat (WITHOUT BEING INFORMED) i pay £729 a month, this is ridiculous and had i have known this before coming i would not have come here. This has penalised me all year as i had no money to spend. (Having said this, my flatmates rent was not as bad, however still high.) IF YOU WANT A QUIET ACCOMMODATION, COME HERE. IF YOU WANT A FUN FIRST YEAR EXPERIENCE, DONT! i really wish someone had given an honest review before i came here.

-Best location for first years. 5 minutes from the centre of town, Morrisons and the Laidlaw library. Has a Tesco underneath Block B. A few minutes from uni and across the road from the Edge gym. -Can be quite anti-social. There's less of a community feel than at the other halls, particularly Devonshire. Flats can be quite lonely too but that depends on your flatmates. -Things are fixed quickly if you ask. -CitySide gym is free for all residents. -Rooms are quite small but they are some of the nicest on offer. -Can be quite cold in the lower flats especially in rooms with heaters in winter as the heaters only stay on for 2 hours before you have to manually turn them on again. -Circuit laundry app gives you £75 on your account which has lasted me all year and I still have some leftover. -Most of the receptionists are very friendly. -The carpark can only be used for a few hours as there are not many spaces. You have to get a permit. The carpark across the road is expensive.

Central Village is a very strange place to live. You have the convenience of getting to your lectures in about 10/15 minutes which is more than can be said for a lot of other accommodations. However, if you’re aiming to come to uni to make friends and socialise then Central Village really isn’t the place. If you’re lucky you’ll make good friends with your flatmates but it seems uncommon that anyone ever gets to know other people in the accommodation. Visiting other accommodations and seeing how friendly everyone is made me a bit jealous. Central Village is very expensive and the only thing even close to make it worth it is the distance to university. If you’re on a budget I’d recommend somewhere cheaper if you can handle the bus/walk to uni. Common room tends to always be dead but there have been nice events like pizza night and pancake day. Cleaning is fine, bins are emptied every weekday. No problems with Internet.

I lived in block D. High quality accommodation with en suites and shared kitchen. 4 flats per floor, 5/6 people per flat. No social spaces for people to meet, rooms are all in one straight row down a corridor so not very sociable. Location is literally 5 mins walk from everywhere. Met the best people here on my floor but I feel lucky to have done so. Not easy to meet other people in the block.

Central Village is a very nice, new, and modern place to live. However it is quite expensive how small the rooms are. The accommodation provided trash removal from the kitchen daily. It is one of the more unsocial places to live, however it was nice for me. It was very nice that only 6 flatmates including yourself share 1 kitchen with 2 fridge/freezers, plenty of storage places for food! The location is unbeatable, it is less than a 5 min walk to classes and about a 10 minute walk into the city centre. If you don't feel like walking to Morrisons there is a small Tesco inside Central Village. It is expensive, but it was worth it.

Central village is in the perfect location being only 2 mins from the heart of uni and 5 mins from the centre of town! It's a well maintained accommodation with modern furnishing and great en suites. However, due to it being such a large accommodation it can be quite unsociable at times.

Extremely strict curfew of 11pm ruins social aspect of accommodation. No leniency at all and even if you turn the music off when asked you will receive a warning and the third warning they give you a fine.

Very modern and comfortable but don't expect much of a social life-it's like a posh prison block!! No one mixes with each other and the management/security is too strict!! Flats in the tower are considerably smaller than flats in the other 3 blocks

Absolutely love it here! Yes it is slightly more expensive than others, but it is perfectly located for everything! 2 minutes from the Sport s Centre, 10 minutes from the City and 10 minutes to the centre of campus. All the rooms have a double bed and ensuite which is just like being in a hotel and the communal space has a clean/modern kitchen with enough living space and a TV! Couldn't recommend it enough.

The location saves money from not needing taxis most nights. If you're in the big tower there are endless social opportunities. As long as you make a lot of friends in freshers you'll be great.

Great location, very convenient for the uni and the city. However, for the money we pay we should have a cleaner like a lot of other accommodations. Haven't used the common room since fresher's week but I'm quite social with others in my block. Good place to live overall

CV has a reputation as being antisocial but I think it's really down to the flatmates you get as some floors are very social. One thing that is antisocial is the fact that you don't have a flatmate opposite you when you ie. when you come out of your door you are facing a wall as all flats are in the same direction. This is different to most halls such as Devonshire, Charles Morris and James Baillie but the same as The Tannery, Concept Place and most other new builds.
