Student Review: 1 /5
By member466079 On 7th February 22

I would not recommend this accommodation to anyone. It is the oldest accommodation in Lincoln. Therefore, if you stay in Courts 1-4, the window pane is singular and have gaps under them, rooms are very draughty. You can hear everything especially the TRAINS! I could not sleep for weeks. The staff are at the other end in the Cygnet Wharf reception and are rude and unhelpful. The '24 hour security' is non-existent. Cleaning is left to students so often kitchens are dirty and there are no social areas. Only the kitchen area in each flat serves as a place for visitors/residents to socialise. It is random who ends up in each flat and I had nothing in common with my flatmates and was left feeling isolated and uncomfortable living there. Anyone can visit and guests were often left in the kitchen unattended, so I did not feel comfortable walking in there as, they we'e were strangers to me. The internet is bad too!

To be honest Lincoln courts has been a nightmare. When we first arrived there were multiple broken communal items, and more have been breaking over time. The sofas have rips in, the lights where coming off the kitchen ceiling. Oh yeah... the microwave and kettle decides to stop working when it wants. Not to mention the silverfish infestation in our bathrooms. However I would say the worst thing about courts is the attitude of maintenance staff. Personally I work night shifts and would appreciate if maintenance would Not enter if I have asked this. I even woke up to a member of staff doing work in my room whilst I was sleeping after a night shift - not fully clothed! However my messages have been ignored and staff enter when they please- a total breach of privacy. I wonder if they would feel the same if I wandered into their homes as I pleased? If you value your privacy I DO NOT recommend Lincoln courts. Cleaners which hang about outside courts have also been very ‘suggestive’

Experience depends on largely who you meet. There is no tv which every accommodation has, I called maintenance for an issue and 2 months in nothing has been fixed. The rooms are small but okay. The location is very close to uni so easy to get to uni but depending on how close you are to cygnet wharf it can take quite long to get to high street.

Absolutely disgusted by my experience here so far, my room is riddled with bed bugs and all the accommodation services did was change my mattress and a half arsed fumigation, which clearly hasn’t worked since I am still getting bitten, ive also found and seen many silverfish coming up through the plug hole and eating bits of carpet. Disgusting

The biggest issue with courts is that everyone pays the same, regardless of what court you're in. If you live in 1-5 or 13-17, great value for money! If you live in 6-12 however, you're getting ripped off. The rooms are smaller, the desk space is laughable, and the showers aren't even height adjustable, they're fixed into the eall, so if you're tall you'll have issues. In addition the kitchens are tiny in the smaller buildings as well, making it difficult fur everyone to be involved in social events. I genuinely think the smaller buildings should cost less because you are getting less.

One of the most expensive Accomodations in Lincoln and completely not worth it. I would recommend going for the cheapest Accomodation that the university offers because you get special offers such as gym membership ect. Other Accomodations have TV, better wifi, double beds and overall they are a better value for money. The maintenance of the area is of a low standard and for what you pay you really really do not get your money's worth. Plus you never get a decent nights sleep ever.

Not a bad place for first years. Had a great year. The rooms are a little dull at first but we're allowed to put posters up, hang lights and really make it our own. Very basic rooms with en suite but great value considering it's so close to the Uni. The kitchen is my court (Court 14. Part of phase 3) is lovely and large. Great for communal events. A nice lounge around. And some flat time! Downsides include the cleaners who are very lazy, to early morning fire alarms 2x a year at least. But apart from that it's great. A real community spirit. A laugh and memories you won't wish to forget!

I love living in courts so much! such a friendly atmosphere and you meet so many great people all in first year too! The bedrooms aren't the biggest but they still have a lot of space with storage and decent bathrooms. I will never forget my time in courts and I wish I could live here for my whole 3 years!

i met one of my best friends living in Lincoln halls. Although the rooms weren't huge or very homely, it was great having an en-suite and the kitchen area was reasonably sized. There are no cleaners for the flats, only for the corridors, but I actually felt this was better as it encouraged us to clean up after ourselves and meant we didn't feel pressure to have the flat spotless at all times, as I've later found that having frequent cleaners means they report you if your kitchen is anything less than spotless. The location is great, only a 5-10 minute walk from main campus (depending on your course), 5 minutes from the uni doctors and 10-15 minutes from town. I really enjoyed my experience here .
