Booked filbert as it was a cheap en suite however this was the biggest mistake I’ve when it comes to university. It is a relatively long walk to the university which is fine, however was made worse by the wasteland you have to cross where there is always shards of glass and when it icy you can barely walk there Flat mates were absolutely terrible doing drugs and staying up repeatedly until 7am sometimes with loud music on (although unite did always respond to noise complaints quickly) they would just put the music back on Kitchen was big although it constantly stank due to the other flat mates refusal to clean and got so bad even the cleaners refused to clean it so I was rarely able to actually use it. Room size good and bed was quite comfy, bathroom was okay although there is a shower curtain not a door which I hated. Had several power cuts Block C always smelt of sewage Wouldn’t recommend to anyone, save and spend the extra money on better accommodations
Overall my experience here has been horrible. If my situation was sorted quickly and efficiently I might have enjoyed this place. Washing is seriously pricely, staff are friendly and the room is actually nice. However, I’ve had several issues since moving in here and not a single member of staff has been helpful. Had a horrible experience with flatmates and the general atmosphere is terrible. As a first year, definitely wouldn’t recommend coming here
Has a bad rep but actually isn't that bad. Its one of the furthest away from DMU but you can still get to campus in under ten minutes if you're quick. Ive been in a number of the halls closer to uni and they're usually smaller and more cramped. And obviously they cost more too. You get quite a lot of room for what you pay. Most of the staff are pretty nice and had no problems with them. May seem a little rough but anyone's fine so long as you don't go looking for trouble obviously. Walls are paper f****** thin, but to be expected I guess. Bathrooms decent although the showers suck. Decent furnishings in the room & kitchen but is dependent on the flat you get, some are clearly more 'recent' than others and so in nicer shape. Internet is decent and rarely down for me but others have had issues, especially with the wifi. Wired I get around 5.8mbps download. All in all I reckon it beats some of the other similarly priced halls, so long as you can hack a walk in the morning.
It is a pretty cheap hall compared to the others at DMU so you can tell that by the people that end up here. I came via clearing and it was the only one that was available. The people this year have lacked respect not caring about destroying the fairly nice halls and treating the staff like s***. The hall is good, the people really arent
i enjoyed living at filbert village, although it's probably the furthest from dmu, it's really not that far once you've walked in a couple of times. They hold lots of socials, such as BBQs and all of the staff are friendly!
