It claims to be a smoke free accommodation but for the past four months someone has been smoking in the shared kitchen, I've complained multiple times and I'm basically told that unless I know who exactly is smoking they won't/can't/don't care about doing anything. I haven't used the kitchen in months because of my asthma so I don't know who's smoking. It's started to get in my room and I'm having asthma attacks and getting sick so I asked to change rooms. Was told to contact my school (who I got the contract through) and they said it would be a charge of £75 to change rooms! £75 to get away from smoke in a "smoke free" area! £75 to not have asthma attacks in my own room! Gave them so much money just to get sick and they wanna charge me to get away from a toxic environment that shouldn't even be here!
There are many maintenance issues that take a while to correct. Sometimes they aren't fixed at all no matter how much you complain. Builders coming in and out of your room as well. The building is located directly next to train tracks, so you will hear the trains all day and night -- even with closed windows. Another issue is their wi-fi which isn't very fast and often goes out. When the wi-fi stops working, the staff are unable to offer any advice as to when it will come back on which takes hours and sometimes days. Staff is horrendous and unhelpful. Do yourself a favor and check out some other accommodations because there are so many to choose from in central London. I deeply regret that I didn't look at others. This place is way too overpriced and they don't have the goods or service to back it up. You deserve to enjoy London and school and not be in uncomfortable and distracting housing.
Bowder Court is among the most expensive accommodation at the University of Leicester's Oadby Student village - all of BC is self catered en suite, £149.10 a week, 39 week contract. The upsides of this are a big room (single bed) with a large desk, shelves, wardrobe, shelves etc, a huge kitchen fit with 6 person dining table, two sofas, a kitchen island, extortionate number of cupboards and lots of workspace. The downside is paying for a tiny, grimy en suite. Yes, it is an en suite, which I will certainly miss moving out of halls, but it is small, and gross. John Foster Halls also have self catered en suite, still with a decent sized room (but not quite as big), but a full sized bathroom with proper shower cubicle. In JoFo you sacrifice your huge kitchen but it really depends what your priorities are. Wifi is awful, but cable connection is good.
