Student Review: 3.1 /5
By member565655 On 26th January 22

Lived here for the first semester of my first year in 2021. Bedrooms and ensuites very small and old-fashioned. There is no lift so if you're on the top floor (like I was), enjoy the stairs. I found there to be issues with the central heating often and some bedrooms are freezing. Flats are six people which is okay but the antisocial layout of the building means that if you don't like your flatmates or are missing flatmates it can be quite a lonely accommodation. Be prepared for a lot of fire alarms. Single beds... One good thing about Windsor is the kitchen/living area being spacious and cozy. There is a good amount of cupboard space. Sofa is comfortable and TV works well. That's all I can say.

Windsor Terrace is about worth the price you pay for it, especially compared to other accomodations. Location is amazing as it is right next to campus, the libraries, the city centre, Jesmond metro station and much more. The flat includes everything you would need to live (bar an iron, which is not a big issue). However, students are told in the open days and online that social spaces including shared bathrooms include a cleaner in its price, but a cleaner has never been once. This could be understandable due to covid, but there have been no price reductions in rent for students living here. The internet goes down frequently which is especially frustrating when students are working from their accommodation. Signal very poor so your own mobile data may not work in your flat. Maintenance are slow to deal with issues you call about, and let themselves in without any warning, and do not keep you up to date on any resolved issues. Reception staff are abrupt and often rude when contacted.

Best value for money in uni owned halls in my opinion. Closest halls to main university campus (10min walk max) and only another 5mins to the Med school. Shared bathrooms seem like a negative compared to ensuite halls, but actually you only share with about 2 other people, usually of the same gender as you, you pay way less rent than ensuite, and the bathrooms are cleaned weekly (included in your rent), so a great way to save money and not a big compromise. Rooms aren’t as fancy/modern as some halls but are a decent size with more than enough storage/big desks/full length mirrors and usually decent wifi. No shared social spaces for socialising with flats but plenty of room in the kitchen/living rooms to have people over. Laundry room just over the road and only £1.10 for each wash/dry cycle which is way cheaper than lots of halls. Less than 5 min walk to nearest metro station, and 15 min walk into town, one of the closest uni owned halls you’ll get to city centre.

Location; This is easily the thing about this accommodation everything is within walking distance.m, it literally takes me 4mins to get to my lecture hall (Engineering). Town is also an 8 minute and to be honest it location would be the only reason I would recommend this ball to anyone. Value for money; The only reason I gave this a 3 star is because this hall is the 2nd cheap UNI accommodation. Private accommodations have better prices and would give an en-suite for the same price this accommodation gives a shared toilet room. WiFi; The WiFi is inconsistent. Most of the time it’s pretty good but sometimes it’s really bad and I get disconnect without my doing so. Hall Management; The hall has a very impressive management. Issues are reported on an app which is very convenient and they fix the problem quickly. Social; I social/game room does not exist and to be very clear HOW SOCIAL A HALL IS DEPENDS ON THE THE PEOPLE IN IT. I wouldn’t t recommend this hall there are better ones

Best accommodation! So close to Uni and the library, only a short walk from town and close to Jesmond bars. Couldn’t fault it!

I really like this accommodation and the Estates Staff and cleaner have been nothing but exceptional. The only thing I would change is having more social events throughout the year, especially at the beginning of first term

Windsor terrace is by far the best overrall student accommodation. It's great value for money compared to other halls- yes, it's not ensuite but you're only sharing a bathroom with two other people it's really not an issue. The location is great, next to the law school and about thirty seconds from the library. It's an easy walk into town, uni and Jesmond- the perfect combo. The layout of the flats feels so much homier than other halls and the kitchen and living spaces are great. Socially, as long as you make an effort it's good- join a windsor terrace group chat and make a block chat and there'll be plenty of opportunities to socialise. Also, not a thing i was expecting to appreciate but definitely do, the price to do laundry is very low compared to other people's ive spoken to in halls. Would highly recommend windsor terrace, going to be very sad to leave!

The walls in this place might as well not be there. If youre happy hearing people do as little as cough the whole year then fair enough. To be fair that, and the fact there is no common place for all residents to meet and most people are reserved/introverted not giving much chance for socialising, everything else was good/as expected but for me the wall issue was just awful and factors massively into why i dont recommend this place

Perfect accommodation. Right next to the library and a very short walk to campus (5-12 minutes depending on where you're going). The room has everything I need (sink, desk, desk lamp, shelves for books, a full length mirror, enough storage space). The internet is good, but not exceptional (a lot of people are using it at once), but never had problems with it and I use Skype a lot. The shower and toilet is right next to the rooms as there are 3 rooms on each side of the common room (1 side girls, the other boys in mixed flats). I will be sad to leave when I have to.

it was very insular, you made friends with one flats during freshers and then didn't socialise outside of that. And if you tried, you basically got the cold shoulder.

good if you actively seek out like minded people. Can be quieter if you decided to stay confined to just your flat. It is what you make of it!
