Had a wonderful year at Brookland road. Experienced both shared apartment as well as studio flat and both were amazing. The only drawback I can think of would be the lack of social space, but since it's so close to Nixon court and the university, it's not hard to come by activities and a social life. It's a nice accommodation for people who like relatively quiet lives. The staff are really lovely and helpful.

I have stayed in Brookland for almost one year (with three lovely girls). It's a very comfortable living environment for me (24-hours heater and hot water system!). Clean and safe. Speed for maintenance maybe a little bit slow. But you can always get a quick response from the staff, and they definitely will try to figure the problem out. Although social events maybe a little bit less, I always prefer a quiet environment for study. So, to me, it's not a big problem. To sum up, because of the considerate team, I enjoyed a wonderful time in Brookland.

I have enjoyed my experience at Brookland and the friendly staff at reception are great. One big issue however, is how management deals with maintenance issues. As someone who has stayed in rental properties for years there are few things that the management team could learn. Firstly, with an operation of this magnitude I am unsure why there is no in house maintenance team (electrician, plumber etc). Generally speaking most letting companies of this magnitude have their own on site maintenance personnel to take care of issues on the spot. Not only is this cheaper but also more efficient. There have been numerous issues where plumbing or electrical do not work. These things happen and the management team cannot be put at fault for it, however the response is generally slow and management does not keep the tenants up to date. I would advise the management team to look into this issue as it's one area that could be greatly improved upon and make the experience much better.

The bad experience stays in here. Terrible maintaining systems, it takes a long time to fix stuff after made reports. Far away from the city center, and the school of business. Also, the price is expensive, even expensive than living in the city center, or Nixon and opal. Wifi is terrible, slowly and miss connect at any time.

Very unsociable, would be nice if a common room was added, weekly cleaners for Brookland place, two fridges for Brookland place as one fridge is not enough for 4 people.

As a person who longs for peace and solitude I am quite satisfied with the living condition in Brookland. (Except some students who make noise in an unreasonable way). And I think the location as well as the equipment are very convenience. But may be it's still a new accommodation, sometimes the equipment cannot work quite well. (The staff will help us to fix it)

It is a nice place to live, but the facilities and the social aspect isn’t worth the amount we pay for.

Brookland road is situated conveniently close to amenities and the university itself is only a 10 minute walk away. The staff are fantastic, friendly and helpful that take pride in fulfilling their duties and looking after the facilities. Definitely would recommend for first year students, lots of social events in nearby accomodation blocks.

Wouldn’t recommend this accommodation, reasons why: - Walls are so hollow that you can hear everyone in your flat as well as below your room & above - Maintenance team are very slow at responding - No common room...
