Its a great place to live with cheerful maintainance staff, exceptionally close to the university and town. The only bad thing is Skype is poor and quite grainy.

Living in a prison would be better! Water contaminated so couldn't shower, brush teeth or drink and we weren't informed about the problem for 2 days Wifi is always down Lift to F block was broken for a month Mice Always dirty even after the "cleaners" have "cleaned". Can't even use the hoover as it's broken and smells like something has died inside it If something breaks good luck getting it fixed, I'm still living with a leak which I've had since September Rude staff Rooms are disgusting, walls all chipped, dated furniture, bathroom covered in grime Constant noise due to paper thin walls Pipes making noises all night Right outside a building site Items of post being opened and possessions being taken Living with drug users Stay away unless you wish to catch something

Water has been contaminated so you physically can't take showers, drink water or even brush your teeth. Knew about the Issue on Friday and didn't tell us until Sunday saying that if we have any symptoms that we need to go to our GP. Lies about the issue and told us to not use the taps all together to begin with. Internet has days where it is down. One of the women managers is extremely rude and obnoxious, walls have chips in them, everyone smokes weed out of their windows or even in the kitchen. Constantly being around drug users and on the odd occasion people taking heroine. If you love yourself or your kids you would not send them to mclaren. I will never return to this disgust vile hell hold.

McLaren house seemed lovely, but once I settled in I realised it wasn't like that at all. The reception seems modern and stylish, but the rooms are dated and the kitchens, hallways, stairs etc are disgusting. The lack of cleaning meant cigarettes and bottles etc were often left in the courtyard for days. I understand that some residents may have been a little difficult to deal with but the management did absolutely nothing to deal with any of the issues. If anything breaks here it doesn't they fixed for months...even if it's the lift and you live on the 8th floor....have fun.
