Read Elm Grove Hall Reviews
Lived here the first year after it had been built and there were lots of problems. It's the most expensive halls of residence and I'm not sure why, there were regular fire alarms, sometimes multiple of a night and I heard stories of showers going cold. My room felt cramped and small and being on the ground floor, facing inwards towards the courtyard and being right by the entrance to the building meant I could never open my curtains (adding to the cramped feeling) or window. If I opened the window it would be very noisy at all hours and I would smell cigarette smoke, everyone used to smoke by entrance and talk (lucky me).
I loved my halls, the only downside was the people I shared with and the lack of living space we only had dining chairs and a kitchen no living area. The location was great only 2 minutes away from pretty much everything, the big issue was when I joined it was the first year of the halls being built so there were many teething issues including several fire alarms going off a night. Cleaners were good but rude, understandable when they’re cleaning up your crap... WiFi was up and down which affected studies
