I'm very disappointed and frustrated with the managment. Concerning safety, its dangerous. The fire alarm often goes off in the night and with many false alarms. With the coronovirus, incredibly frustrated with their stingy, unhelpful reaction to accomodate as every other business is having to. We are all called home early to self isolate and they refuse any refunds whatsoever. Not impressed, and consider it criminal, robbing students of money they have no right to keep. I would heavily discourage anyone to book here, unless they sort out their contracts.
I currently pay £131 for a premium en suite room which i thought was an okay happy medium to pay as some accommodation's near are quite expensive however, Ive heard that these prices are going up (starting 2020 academic year) and I would not be happy paying that for what we get especially if you can get much better places for just a bit more. The bathroom doesn't feel clean even though i have cleaned it as soon as moved in and frequently since. I have had trouble with silverfish which i have found on the bathroom floor, sink and in the shower, and i know this is a problem across the whole accommodation. They have treated it yet i still find silverfish. The showers are rubbish, no water pressure whatsoever (feels okay when testing it with your hand but not when your actually under) and on occasions the temperature fluctuates from cold to boiling without even turning the dial. The wifi began good but more recently my phone would switch to 4G or my laptop cannot connect at all.
don’t choose this place absolute waste of money at nearly £118 a week you’ll get poor management, rooms infested with silver fish (several people I know have) also damp rooms they won’t fix. They’ll interrogate you’re post delivered and apparently ‘track your internet footstep’ the wifi is horrific so if you’re a media or film student don’t think watching films will be easy! your roommates could likely be dirty resulting in a never clean kitchen, and also cameras everywhere 24/7 like you’re on big brother they don’t trust you, just want your money. And i’ve only been here for several months and they haven’t been good, only good part is the prime location near campus and the city probably the only reason people pick it.
moved into phase two flat.... had just a kettle and a fridge, oven didn't work for three days, then a blocked drain cause my whole room to be flooded with poop water and it took over 17 hours to get it sorted. wifi drops out every hour or two.
Very Clean Rooms and Bathrooms, Kitchen is all modern and very large, Flat Screen in Kitchen which is a plus. Very good value for money and cant be closer to city campus 2 min work to Newton building. Relatively quiet. Great accommodation for 1,2 and 3rd years. Great onsite facilities.
Lovely management, very comfortable accommodation - but no social events to help integrate, and no common area for meeting people - hence the 1*. If repairs needed doing they were usually prompt, and the maintenance team were very nice. There wasn't a cleaner either - we were responsible for our flats, which were inspected, but the maintenance and rest of the site are why I gave 3*.
