The halls of residence on the Cheshire campus are accessible and make the commute to uni every day that little bit easier. The staff are friendly and assertive, thus meaning students feel comfortable within their accommodation l.
Halls are clean and easy to assess. Great value for money and decent size. The kitchen area is quite small but I always managed with living with 6 other people. The location isn't great and social life is poor but I have a great time and made good social life with friends.
£87 per week (going up to 90) s a bit expensive considering there are other accommodation options available in the area which have both a double bed and en suite starting from £75 per wee. The close proximity to the uni university is an advantage, however the only shop nearby is co-op which is quite expensive. Security have started to be very strict around parties which is unfair, as there is no where else nearby to party. Maintainence is slow to respond, and there is no phone signal inside the accommodation accommodation.
Way too expensive, especially seeing as it's in Crewe. The bins are too noisy in the morning, they should be in the day, seeing as people need sleep to get the best of their studies. The hall management aren't lenient enough with flat parties, we're students, of course we're going to party! Not communal enough.
I was so nervous living in halls, being far away from home and not knowing anyone, it made me doubt university altogether. But I'm so glad I did it! I have met some amazing people in my flat and on my course, it's a fantastic experience and I actually miss being in halls when I'm back home!
Very expensive for what you get. Everything breaks even though the flat look after it well. Freezers always break and defrost causing a loss in food which is very expensive to be losing quite often. Although there are issues all in all it is an ok place to live as a student as you cant expect a lot of luxury.
Most of the time when I loved in booth halls the cleaners just sat and talked in our kitchen and didn't really bother doing any cleaning up. As for social experience, the security guards never let us be social. Compared to other universities halls of residence, these halls are very strict and even unfair. The only one time I can think of in which I appreciated from the staff was when I received some flowers unexpectedly and the kept on coming back to my flat to see if I was in to let me know (I was in lectures all day so I wasn't back till late) apparently this happened a few times during the day and then the time when I was actually back in my flat. It was really nice of them as they didn't have to do that!
While the halls are lovely and in great condition the location of them in terms of facilities are shocking. They're very close to campus, which is great, but they're a good 30/35 minute walk from the town centre. You can't help but feel a little trapped sometimes! They're ran very well though and you feel safe.
