Absolutly disgusting! a student takes a loan to pay for these holes, slum is profitting from a student's loan.
Value for money- internet, easy to commute to university and city centre. But could be quite hard if you're first year students. Recommended for 3rd, 4th year and PhD students.
Leicester University's "budget" accommodation offering at £84.50 a week. Little/No care has been given to these blocks over the years. The carpeting in the entire block is felt (similar to the top of a scouring pad), which is quite difficult to clean. In fact I had my shoes/slippers on the entire time I was there. Cheap furniture, black mould around windows, very very very poor lighting, little control over heating (since hot water pipes run INSIDE the room and turning off the radiator won’t help). Leaving windows open allows for insects to enter the rooms, which become a perfect breeding ground given how warm it is in there. This solved the mystery of why there were so many spiders throughout the block…or did it? And whilst it is understandable that some universities are cash strapped there are simple aesthetic measures that UoL could have taken, such as getting rid of spider webs / disinfecting the block, removing stickers from walls, washing of writings on walls and applying paint.
there is not so much information about freemen's common, hopefully this information will be useful if you are planning to move to one of the university accommodation. let me start with the rooms, from what i have seen the rooms are not actually that small. you just have to learn how to use the spaces available to you properly. most of the furnitures seem to be in good condition however the cupboard is a bit too small. location wise, it is not that far from the university. it is however expensive compared to renting a private accommodation with few other friends but if you are new to the city like me, it is always good idea to stay in the university accommodation for the first year and then move out.
