Where do we start? Kitchen space is lacking. Not adequate for 4 people. Tiny cupboards. 1 fridge freezer between us all. Sofa's are extremely uncomfortable. Small TV. Social area inadequate. Hall management could do with a major improvement. Shower breaks and takes nearly a week to sort. Mixing nurses with regular students wasn't there best of ideas. Means that social experience was lacking. Halls could do with a good old clean on a weekly basis as most windows face onto main road and gather dust and become dirty quickly. Reception staff need training as manners are dreadful and don't know anything about halls when asked. Not my best of experiences.

Only stay here if you want security letting themselves into your halls and aggressively threatening you. Bunch of criminals, I think theyre all retired bouncers with their licenses taken from them. no one at this university cares about you or your friends. the place Is dirty and cliquey. you will find it hard to make friends here. go to Cavendish halls. much better atmosphere, friendlier people and gets cleaned daily.

I was constantly I'll from the damp in the carpet. Everyone got charged a crazy ammount for damages that we didn't do and when I asked for the proof and itemised bill they were unable to give them to me - but they threatened to kick me off the course if I didn't pay so I dropped it. Great size, social, met some really great friends there

In a perfect location close to uni, this is where I met the love of my life and will never forget the amazing memories I have created in these halls.

Although there was mould in my bedroom and bathroom that maintenance never helped with, the accommodation was in walking distance from the university, asda and most clubs.
