Far too expensive - especially when compared to alternative non-university accommodation which is on a par for quality but far cheaper. It is ridiculous that there are only 10 washing machines and 10 tumble dryers to be shared between over 700 residents. Washing and drying clothes is literally an impossibility. Moreover, to add insult to injury, a wash costs £2,30 and to dry £1,20. Given to extortionate rent already paid by residents a one coupon a week system would be much better, whereby each student is entitled to one free wash and dry a week and the cost of any additional washes and dries must incurred the resident. Location is amazing, especially if studying humanities subjects which tend to be situated in the south campus area of Liverpool University. However, walking to the science based north campus takes little more than 10 to 15 minutes. Management is, put simply, appalling.

I have to say, this accommodation exceeded my expectation in almost every way :)

It's possibly the best accommodation one could ask for, and I have to disagree with the rest of the reviewers here! The wifi was absolutely amazing for me, and the management staff was great! I wished I could prolong my stay here!

Far too expensive for what's included and the administration team are terrible and non responsive. Good luck doing any work with the wifi that hardly ever works. It is close to the uni which is helpful but also on a busy road so be prepared for police sirens at 3am most nights. The cleaning staff are really friendly and helpful, although the common/social spaces are not the best for socialising. The laundry facilities are also lacking with a small number of washing machines and dryers that are often broken or out of service.

I'm a local resident who is not a student. I've had to complain many times about late night part noise and disruption coming from the inmates. While this year has been quieter than the last few I work very hard and am tired of having to cope with antisocial behaviour. Tonight after several months of work without a single day off I finally had a night to relax and invited a friend over to watch a film. At half ten a loud shouting and cheering started and at quarter to eleven I gave up waiting for it to stop and tried to phone the number on line for Vine Court to receive an out of office reply leaving me no option but to shout down to the ten drunk lads with pints of beer in glasses playing a very loud game of 5 aside football. If it was ruining my evening from across the street several floors up and through double glazing I'm wondering why the university's own accommodation advisor couldn't hear it and decide to stop it. Clearly the university accommodation management think this is ok

Hall staff think they can enter your room whenever they like. Rooms are extremely hot - soon rectified when you take off the panel for the air conditioning and change the settings to bring it off central control. Management are abrupt, rude, and dismissive. Manager walked away when trying to raise an issue, not fit for purpose.

Vine Court is overpriced - there is plenty of cheaper and equally good accommodation nearby. Although you are expected to adhere to the contract you sign the university seems to think it has no obligations itself. Fine if you speak foreign languages as seems to be full of international students. This affects social interaction. Hot water is intermittent as is the heating in winter. Shower was serviced by maintenance using my toothbrush! Stay away!

Vine court is way too expensive for what you get. The hall management is terrible. They are so intrusive, they will regularly come into your room without permission. The catered food is unhealthy and tasteless. Plus it's not like you'll actually be eating it as its only available at very odd times during the day. The only good thing about vine court is its location on campus.

Don't waste your money on the catered option - food is terrible and unhealthy (chips nearly every day). Rooms are lovely and spacious, comfortable double beds and great en-suites. We had a large kitchen which was good for socialising but 16 people in one flat was way too many, it was hard to get to know everyone well.

Beautiful accommodation located in south campus. Security was very good, always felt safe. Maintenance and cleaning was great too. If anything broke it would be replaced/fixed that same day.

Vine Court is a pretty amazing place, you're right next to lectures, 15 minutes from town and having the library right next to you is a godsend in the exam periods, made loads of friends here and got plenty smashed!
