Lucky enough to get an ensuite catered room! The food is as good as you can expect and it's a very social environment, you never walk down the hall ways and bump into someone you don't know!

Very lively halls (there's always at least one group of people going out every night of the week). However the bit that I lived in first year didn't actually have a living/communal area so was a bit of a pain as we couldn't have friend's over or we would just have to sit in each other's rooms. Other than that it was great.

These halls are an absolute disgrace. The food is disgusting, there is no social space in houses for you to go, so your cooped up in your room 24/7

Absolute disappointment! Looks nothing like the pictures you are shown on the virtual tours and kitchen/bathroom facilities are an utter disgrace!! Definitely not worth £99 per week

Very rude staff who are very unhelpful. They like to make as much profit on students as they can. Other than that it's very sociable with good facilities

Brilliant experience the social aspect is amazing I met loads of new people. Also a short walk from centre of town and only 5 minutes to lectures if you are in the medical school

Due to being catered during the week we had no freezer. Also had no common area so we had to sit in the corridors, but we paid the same amount as people who did. Social life was very good because there are so many people. Shared 3 toilets between 17 and then were often broken.

Lots of fun, but quite expensive. Nice to have its own shop and bar too.

Nice food for catered students, a lot of good facilities, such as a computer cluster, tv room, bar and shop. However, they seem to find excuses to charge students unfair prices for small things, such as £25 just for getting locked out of your room. Staff are very lazy as they don't even work weekends, they're replaced by unhelpful and resentful security guards. Crawling with rahs but at the same time you can find people who don't like rahs either!

Good halls overall. Terrible bathrooms but a good social area. Beware, the reception staff are unpleasant and you get a keycard (only one) & if you loose/forget it you have to pay to get let back into your room. Yep, if you forget it and you're on your way back from the shower you have to go to reception in your towel, where the staff will make you wait 20mins out of spite.

due to it being catered there's very little kitchen space so no area for socialising with people from your corridor.

lots of rahs, apparantly 70% of people here went to private school. Obviously have nothing against that but when coupled with ridiculously posh boarding school accents, signet rings, and other joke fashions, it can be a bit much! You'll get stares for wearing a short skirt and heels on a night on (God forbid). There's always people around so you'll definitely make friends here! The self catered flats a nice, great for pres/parties. There's loads of fridge/freezer space and two cookers. Plus the staff are fab!
