Featured review

On campus, 10 minutes from the city centre, within walking distance of all shops, really good atmosphere. The downside is that there is lots of traffic and hospital noise, plus the TV is on and off at times, I have enjoyed living here however depends on the other students you get put with, not enough room for socialising spaces. Need to improve on fire safety massively! (always freaks me out!)

Stuck above Riley's with music all night and smokers right by your door. Communal area's never cleaned, washing machines often broken and my letter box was broken into and my post stolen and nothing was done after I reported it. Not worth the money at all.

The halls I stay in are very nice and extremely well designed. Although they are quite far away from uni, there are plenty of transportation options available. The biggest benefit for my halls is the social experience and making new friends.

The walls are very thin which is annoying if your flatmates are noisy! Especially with your room next to the kitchen and sitting room! Also the TV does not work properly in any of the flats, people have complained about the TV signal and they just put signs up saying that they understood but we're not going to do anything, the fire alarms get set off a lot, and I've had multiple problems with the water here, however it's close to the university and the room space is a decent size.

Unless you don't like sleeping I wouldn't recommend living here. You'll be kept awake by either drunk people, hanky panky noises, cars revving, fights and occasional fireworks being thrown at the building. Location is good, walking to town is easy and walking into uni is less than 5 minutes to most buildings. The internet is awful, hardly works and when it does work it's just slow. The cleaners barely come when they're supposed to but when they do they don't even get the hoover or mop out or do any actual cleaning. Nice place to live if you don't mind the block door being ripped off it's hinges mid evening (didn't get replaced for about 15-20 hours after). The laundry room is ridiculously expensive and whenever you go to do your washing you have to wait because there's only 3 machines and the third doesn't work most of the time. Most of your kitchen appliances will be shockingly bad quality but hey, we're only paying £122 a week!

There's no common room, you pay £114 which is okay . Cleaners came once during the year instead of at the end of every term so they were kinda uneccessary.
