Love living here - always someone around if you need help! Internet a little slow at times but it's just been updated so we will see... All cleaning of flats done by whoever lives there so it's personal preference on how clean you want it! But communal areas like stairs and hallways are clean! Amazing location a short walk to the station, library, town, takeaways, supermarkets, pubs, lecture halls, doctors!
I love living in Victoria Halls, the location is perfect as you are close to the shops, nightclubs and city campus. The library is just across the road. There is 24 hour security so you always feel safe. The rooms are nice considering the price, we all have ensuites and a nice kitchen area, but I have visited Liberty prospect point where the rooms are much nicer and more modern.
I've lived in student halls for all the years of my university education and Victoria (by far) has been the worst.
The staff are not helpful- you have to remind them multiple times to get things done. Their record keeping is poor, especially rent payment records.
The ensuites have poor lay-out and the shower flow is awful! There aren't enough drawers for the desk. All the appliances in the kitchen are of poor quality (like the TV and oven). And no matter, what we do, the carpet has an awful smell.
One advantage is that each flat has its own vacuum cleaner. The location (in the city centre) is convenient, but parking is tricky. With the Victoria postcode, it is impossible to get a parking permit without restrictions. Moreover, Victoria will not allow cars into their compound, even if your parents want to visit you.
Overall, it's cheaper than other halls in the area, but you have to pay a price.
