Please listen to these reviews...I didn't and I regretted it as soon as I moved in. The staff are useless, it takes weeks to fix anything that's broken, there's obviously no communication between them, reception is closed pretty much the entire time and there's basically NO SECURITY. Single handedly the worst experience I've ever had with student accomodation. Fridge has nail polish on it from previous residents? Try and charge them for an entire new fridge! Locks on room doors? No, they don't need those...(mine was broken when I moved in, it took 6 hours to get someone to fix it as it "wasn't essential") I had 1 other person in my 6 person flat...enough said. 3 WASHING MACHINES FOR THE ENTIRE TOWER, seriously...and it costs about £6 Everytime you want to wash/dry something. I had money taken out of my account weeks earlier than stated for rent, with little to no effort made to fix it.

Leeds Beckett University Halls- Not a social halls. Decided to redecorate during exam period: drilling all day long! Also, ripped out laundry room, said they would be out of order for a few days. Still not back on 5/05 and been about two weeks- Been told to use Sky Plaza's. Reception only open till 6 so cant collect parcels if been to Uni. But even when Reception is supposed to be open, it hardly ever is. Which means hardly any security- had to call the police because a drunken man(not student) for passed out outside. Expensive- only because of location. Rooms weren't decorated since taken over by Unite Students: Walls scuffed, carpet old/worn/full of hair, Shower broken. Middle of year had to hire a company to come in because there were bugs in everyone's carpet. Cleaner came every two weeks but only cleans around things, so under microwave never cleaned Probably a perfect accommodation after summer as it will be completely renovated, but they seem to have ignored this years tenants.
