If you're "URBAN", living at Opal Court really isn't for you. I found that Nixon really supplied me with people who were like me. If by chance you are allocated this accommodation, on your first i would strongly advise you to go to Nixon Court. I say this because the environment at Nixon is very urban and everyone is willing to get to know you. Trust me. The common room at Opal closes at 11pm. The common room at Nixon is open for 24hrs, which holds FIFA tournaments. Can you see the difference! All in all opal is good, in terms of the rooms (en suite) and its 5 minutes away from the uni, however Nixon is too, but if you want to make friends quickly, Nixon is your best bet. P.S it took me at least 2 and a half months to meet all my roommates at Opal.

Living in opal court was a good experience, however, in terms of value for money it isn't the best. It was nice to experience living in halls though

Very good place to have your personal space and very close to uni, its literally 2 minutes if you're a medicine student. Great noise management and yeah if you have a huge party they will shut it down if its too late at night, but at the same time when you wil have a late night studying or trying to get a good night sleep before your test you will appreciate it

Perfect location. Had a studio which suitedo my dietary requirements. Felt isolated in a studio as couldn't enter any corridors in my halls- unable to socialise with others on my floor. Should be allowed access into other blocks better to meet friends.

Big disappointment. Firstly, the people working at reception are so bloody rude, especially one innparticular. I won't even bother saying hello to them, because all you've receive back is complete air and screw faced look. They have not made me feel welcome here at all. I'm reluctant to approach them in fear that I'll receive a rude response. My room had a broken ceiling light, broken raidiator, the shower plug was blocked and my hot tap won't stop running. If that's not bad already, the Wifi is so bad, its contatly coming on and turning off. Overall, the money I'm paying for a single bed on suite is not worth it. The area may be good but the feeling of coming to a place filled with rude staff is so off putting. In addition, I'm a first year student and when I applied I enquired about living with other first years and was told that this would be the case. LIES. Also, good luck finding a corner shop nearby. It's shit.

Really anal about having visitors over, even ones who are already in university accommodation, some security are not very nice. However very close to campus, no need to take the bus, large bed, nice ensuite. Some blocks are better socially than others

It was good but random placements made it hard in first year, as wasn't easy going to other flats to make friends as all my flatmates were in 3rd year. There's is also no television and does not have a modern look. Opal has many competitors, code, the summit ... Zone properties but have made no efforts to keep up. It adds value especially because these other places are either the same price or just slightly more expensive. So aesthetics is something that drastically needs to improve.
