Overall, the flats need renovating, paying over £120 a week for a place which makes you feel you're living in the 90s. Management also refused to acknowledge the fact that one of the flat mates was the cause of damage to a window of our flat and thus forced us all to fork out to pay for it. Overall, not a positive experience living here, the only bonus was its location.

Living in halls I have made three very close and wonderful friends. One of our flatmates unfortunately wasn't as sociable. Although Unite offers free breakfast downstairs in the lobby this is very basic. The cleaners rarely come up and it is ourselves who have to do a thorough clean each week rather than the cleaners. Also I have only made friends in my flat... I barely know anyone else who live in the same halls. The price we pay is ridiculous, the only upside is that we are given large rooms and our living space is big with beautiful views. I do not regret living in halls but I wish there were more social events to help find a greater group of friends.

WiFi is free and included with the room and at night especially it can be very quick. The cleaning isn't so good, with our Kitchen being cleaned very badly most times. The halls are also very expensive, and we don't even get double beds.

rooms were ok size wise but the on-suite made up for it. Brilliant way to make new friends as you start uni,Staff are helpful and if you ever have an issue, talk to the downstairs office and they will have an engineer up asap. Very friendly staff, good atmostphere, and most of all SAFE! scanned in keyfobs mean that noone can get in your flat without your consent. couldnt recommend the whole student halls experience any harder than i already do.

This accommodation is really expensive so if you're on a tight budget it's not the best option. It's located very very close to campus and the Queen Elizabeth Centre (where they have a gym) which is nice. The rooms are lovely but definitely overpriced and I've seen that prices have actually gone up for the people who are starting in 2015 which is rediculous. All in all I've had a good experience at this accommodation and the main reason why I'm moving from it is because it's so expensive.

Bit pricey but it's in a great location and it's for sure the liveliest and most sociable of those at DMU

Most expensive halls but really it's the people that make it good, and the closeness to the buildings. Wouldn't change my halls for anything but wish they were better for how much we spend

Keep to the standard rooms. The upgrades cost alot more for not much. If youre over 6'3 like me your feet will hang off the end of the bed . Laundry system is down alot. Since it isnt coin operated either all machines are broken or none at all. They're expensive aswell £4.50 per wash ans dry. The interest speeds are OK, no need to pay for the upgrade. Depending on where your room is you could either have your whole room open to the rest of the accommodation or you get a lovely veiw of the river sour or a street. If you have a room facing the river you always hear drunks screaming and singing aswell as cars with loud exhausts. Beds are uncomfortable. The desks are large with lots of space, a normal sized wardrobe and wall mounted shelfs . Aswell as drawers, a bed side table and alot of storage under your bed. If you have a computer with 3 monitors they should fit well on the desk. There alot are sockets however not very well placed. I have almost reached word limit. I will Cont.

Fantastic place to live in your first year! Location is perfect... Living on campus means you'll never be late for lectures also it's situated 5 mins away from big tesco and 5 mins away from town! I loved my first year at Newark Point! Beautiful large rooms with fantastic views of the city

I have a premium room which comes with a double bed, after seeing the single rooms, it really is worth that extra money! :)

The rooms are defiantly not worth the amount you are paying for and the walls are way too thin as you can literally hear the conversation from the room next door. The only good thing about this place is that it's on campus.

Definitely not worth the money. Way too expensive for what you actually get. Could stay somewhere much nicer for a lot less!
