I am in my first year at Ravensbourne - I received a discounted room and decided to stay here as they marketed it as if there was no where else to stay, as well as the short commute. I received little to no information prior to moving in, the only emails I got were to ask for my money. The staff are incredibly rude and not very helpful - when you smile and say hello in the morning they simply ignore you. The lifts rarely work & the place generally smells. They market it as a lot of social events, but there aren't really any and you have to pay for them, there are limited spaces usually. The rooms are okay - they are spacious for what they are but aren't clean at all, all of the plugs were blocked when I moved in, there are bugs everywhere and there has been pest control in. The only positive is the location! Think twice before moving here, there are so many better options! Unite Students at Stratford is where I'll be moving next year, an incomparable atmosphere!
The WiFi goes away often and the staff Is overall nice even if I had problems at the beginning because they were extremely incompetent and did not manage to answer any of my questions. Social spaces are very nice even if they make you pay for events and this inhibits my will to attend their organized parties. Rooms are overall clean even if I don’t like the smell on my floor but have noticed it is not the same as others. It is expensive but it has everything you need and it’s very nice. It has a big window, a modern bathroom,a kitchen with everything you need and huge desk which is very comfortable. There is plenty of space for clothes and stationery.
This accommodation is by far the worst for anyone at Ravensbourne Uni. There are countless problems including toilets running for many days straight, carpet worms living in the carpets around a significant number of people's rooms and mold growing in fridges caused by fridge leaks. I've come from New York and didn't receive a discounted room, and I'm now forced to live with worms and mold, which are a health hazard in themselves. Do not rent here. The wifi goes out regularly and the staff, and maintenance is extremely unhelpful. It isn't worth the price of the room and the limited space that you receive.
It's super expensive but is in a really lovely and convenient location, walking distance from the o2 and my uni, the staff are lovely and the place is hygienic and clean. Rooms are small but I guess that's to be expected. You have your own microwave, two hobs and a fridge/freezer which is nice. A little annoying that you don't have an oven and have to go downstairs if you want to cook something, but not too much of a problem.
Loud people, generally stupid people who want to waste £9000 a year on a a photography or media degree. Rude staff, no cleaning, no social atmosphere. It's way too hot in the rooms in summer, even with windows open and fans turned on.
