Honestly, only live here if you're an engineering student or your really tight on funds or location is absolutely paramount. I'll give it to the hall, because it's not ensuit the rooms are quite big compared to the other halls but they really really really need renovation. The carpets look like dead bodies have been dragged across them in some places and the walls are all bland and very old. Each room has just a really misplaced rusty sink in it which honestly is the finishing touch to making the place look like a prison cell (I cried when I moved in). Also the common room is covered in vomit :) the reception is closed more than it is open and if you're looking for ethnic diversity too, stay clear of Wright Rob. BUT you could meet some lovely people here and vamp up your spacious room to make it fantastic with a nice rug and chair covers and pictures on the wall and if your higher up in the building the view is to die for so you can make it work if you want to!
great location - right near Piccadilly station so half way between uni and town. However, have to share a kitchen with 15 other people and 4 showers (most of which don't work) - gets unclean very quickly. Heating hardly ever works and complaints aren't looked at for at least a month. Reception close early so risky to order things to halls and the security call system hardly ever works so not the safest place to be. Frequent leaks leave halls smelling like sewers. But location is a bonus and it's not overly expensive considering the location - £107 a week
Really cool place if you're lucky enough to find the right people to hang out with. Shared bathroom is not a big issue, however problems are likely to occur because of all the different nationalities and cultures that can be found in the halls. Shared kitchens are the best places to socialise and pre-drink.
Basically the most nasty disgusting hall you can actually imagine, however is so s**t it's almost fun. Cleaners only clean if the kitchen is already clean.. there is usually a gladiatorial battle to find fridge space for your chicken goujons and garlic bread. If you only care about location then pick here, as it is close to city centre and university city campus, however if you are looking for anything else avoid. On the bright side, Receptionists are nice and they occasionally give us free alcohol (by free I mean they use the ridiculous amount of money you pay for a s**t kitchen and bathroom shared with 14 other people).
If you end up living with the right kind of people, wright robinson could be a really nice place to live. The issue is that you can't choose who you live with in halls which means you could be living with the dirtiest, most unhygienic people you'll ever meet (like I am) and there's nothing you can do about it because it's just "student life". The hall itself is alright, it's just the people who live in it that might pose a problem, but that's the same with every hall.
