WiFi is awful, drops out several times a day. Accommodation is not secure, my £3000 bike was stolen from within their "secure bike storage". Location is very far and inconvenient, taking 2 hours to get to central London during tube strikes. Mixed Imperial / UAL leads to a poor social environment. Construction sites on all sides, starting at 6am, waking everyone. Accomodation have finally admitted this is an issue and started giving out ear plugs just so we can sleep.
Value for money; ha there is literally nothing worth the price of the most expensive dorm with Ual. You will most definitely pay more than what you get from student finance. For that expensive price you will get, four LOUD construction sites outside your window working from 7am to whenever it gets darks, picky inspections every month that force there to be no evidence of people living there, horrible maintence that refuse to admit blame on things like washing machines breaking down mid-wash, carpet bugs etc, a really uncomfortable mattress that you will need a topper for, no cleaning products and a really bad henry hoover and mop with no bucket. Convinced yet? If i was to list anything good, it would be that it’s next to a train station and a small tesco and asda. There is a common room and if you go to the parties on the first day it’s quite good as everyone’s new. however if you move in later, everyone can be quite cliquey and if you’re awkward, it’s really hard to make friends.
I wish I could give 0 star! Before i moved in, I doubt about the reviews, but after living here for a year. I would definitely say this place has earned their terrible reviews for reasons: too expensive, endless kitchen inspection, and poor management. Moreover, you have to pay for everything unfairly even though its caused by some one else. My advice is DONT live here, you can find somewhere better.
Bad manager but have big common really room,although the parties the hold are a little boring but not bad The environment is clean here but just has a small tesco close here not very convenient but has a tube station just in front of the hall.
Where do I begin... Basically just don't live here; it's the closest UAL hall of residence to Lime Grove but Acton itself is not nice. The only positive is it's close proximity to the tube and Tesco. The management team are unresponsive to any messages or complaints; I had an issue with a bad draft from my window which they refused to even come and look at. You also have kitchen inspections once a month that are extremely picky: essentially you are expected to live in a museum and if you don't you get charged for a cleaner. Then there are the room inspections each term which are always on the week of deadlines which when you do an art course which requires for you to use your desk almost constantly is a major hassle. I have been failed for an inspection because I refused to move my Uni work from my desk. The rooms themselves are cheaply built and uncomfortable, I had to buy a separate topper for my mattress as it dug into me, and many of my flat mates had to do the same.
