Featured review

Good security and regular (but not too regular) checking of cleanliness of communal areas which is good when you dont want to nag/argue with your messy flatmates. The big courtyard is a brilliant social space and makes meeting new people easy in freshers week. It also makes it a great choice for smokers since its right outside your front door. Lifts and disabled access everywhere. Downsides, thin walls between flat mates and the courtyard can be noisy at night, especially during freshers week(s). Nothing thats not common to pretty much all halls. Most flats are unisex and are for 4-5 people. You can choose specifically to be in a unisex flat too.

for what you pay for the rooms you'd expect more, the ensuite bathrooms are like pods. Cleaning? Of course we do that ourselves with weekly inspections and at the end of or stay so really we just do that. Common room was a bit tucked away, hardly ever used it. Management and maintenance were good, if you put in a complaint or had a question they were quickly answered. Unfortunately we had issues with our oven and fridge which wasn't the best. The best part was the podium that seemed more the social place than the actual common room

Definitely worth it! Liberty Park takes security very seriously and will make you feel safe 24/7. The rooms are in great condition and come with an en-suite bathroom, which unfortunately takes a bit of getting used to, as it's a tad small. All-in-all a great place to live though and with the rewards you are getting for staying more than 1 year it's well worth the money.

Overall Liberty Point is a very good place to live, with an ideal location situated a 5-10 minute walk from the Uni campus. The staff and security are helpful and well mannered. The bedroom room is spacious with acceptable storage space and the bathroom is a good size. However, the living room/kitchen and hoover is in desperate need of updating but is big enough for all flatmates without feeling too cramped.

The rooms are basic and expensive compared to student housing, and the staff fraudulently claim for damages to be taken from deposits, not only does the work not need doing, it is not being done but students are still being charged. I was personally charged £30 per wall to repaint the kitchen which I later found out was not repainted, friends I met at Liberty park also agreed with this. Also the social room is terrible when compared to somewhere like Code, it is quiet and poorly run.

Very expensive for small bedrooms space, good that you get en suits, living/kitchen area needs improvements, some flats are much better than others but they are all the same price which isn't good.

Never any hot water, sometimes water didn't even come out the sinks or weren't able to flush the toilets. this is absolute nonsense, now that I'm leaving they are trying to make me pay for stains on the wall that were already there.

Cons: Probably a little overpriced I feel, given the rooms and kitchens are very standard, however looking at a lot of other uni's accommodation, £117 a week isn't too bad in comparison. Also, courtyard can be very loud and the walls are NOT soundproof. Pros: Staff were the best I could have asked for, always willing to respond to any issues! e.g. I moved flats over christmas and they helped me all the way, and then they quickly gave my deposit back despite rumours they never do! The Halls are really sociable, lots of students and a large courtyard, they host social events in the halls common room which is nice! Overall 8.5/10 - clean, friendly, little bit loud, but thats uni all over
