Have lived here for two years now, since the place first opened and each year the price has gone up but in my eyes, the place is hardly worth the price since, most things don’t work. Even when you report it to the staff, it takes weeks for them to fix the problems. The fire alarm goes off often and takes a while for someone to switch it off which is very annoying.Certain areas inside the building constantly smell like smoke or weed which is very off putting and even when you complain nothing changes which is very unfair to the other students who also live here, who don’t smoke. From Thursday to Sunday It can get very loud.Some of the residents are very disrespectful, not only to the building by littering in social spaces but also outside and not being able to dispose of their waste properly which is not only once again unfair to other student but also to the members of staff who they seem to think are there to clean up after them. The staff are very friendly & helpful.
Covid-19: No not really, sent out a few generic stay safe emails but many residents are still hosting loud gathering and fire alarm is still constantly going off.
It's a nice accommodation. Very pricey, but there aren't many options for a studio apartment that is close to UoL. Unfortunately, it's let down by a number of the residents who don't seem to have any respect for the place, and this includes occasional loud parties in the common room and the courtyard which almost always lead to rubbish being left or, in some cases, criminal damage (I went to use the laundry the next morning and the glass in a door had been smashed...). The accommodation managers don't seem to take a hard enough approach on these people - they sent an email recently that they would be upping this, but in that email they basically admitted to just giving out warnings for smoking in rooms(!) which is a serious criminal offence. I can't see why they can't get rid of the troublemakers at first offence - especially since I'd imagine the contract would allow them to still get the rent for the year.
