Most helpful review

Kitchens vary hugely in size. Dreadful internet, nothing in the already basic kitchen works. Drawers in freezer taped together. Window will not close and extractor fan is broken no chance of fix. Absolutely no social aspect to the common area. Room is £30 a week more expensive than mates which have a tv and sofa which actually has some leather left on it available to sit on. Entire halls have a stale smell of bad cooking. Very noisy if not asleep by 2am from people shouting on their way in from nights out. Staff treat paying guests like 5y/o and are extremely incompetent. Fire alarms go off all the time at inconvenient times 4am. Random people let themselves into your room at 7am sometimes to check shower pressure whilst you're sleeping. Only plus is there's an M&S over over the bridge and course nights out are class. Can't have anyone over though because of noise complaints. Look at Liberty Central or The Sheild instead. Both closer to Uni, cheaper and nicer in everyway possible.

Cheap shitty decoration compared to other accommodation which seem to be modern. Reception workers are top class cunts and the metal prion beds are rank. Other than that its sound : )

Absolutely love it here, the rooms are so modern, well kept and an excellent size, the location is very ideal with a 3 minute walk to the business blocks and 5 minutes into the main hub of the university. We are also right next to a Tesco local which is very useful. The common room is a great size as well

Don't be fooled! Building work going on literally 10 steps away from my window since January and shall be continuing for another year. Starts at 6:30am every morning. Ruined my experience.

Chamberlain Tower, located at The University of Birmingham, is the most expensive accommodation. For what its worth, it comes with a better laundrette, its own waitered restaurant and views from your apartment which make it feel like a show apartment! Its amazing. However, do you really need this at university? The answer is no. But if you haven't really lived away from home, don't want the constant noise that will wake you up at night, want to live in probably the safest accommodation in my opinion and still want to be in the social hub of university- its for you. A major down/upside to Chamberlain is you have to have meal plan (£50 spend on catered food a week- if you don't spend the full £50, the remaining money will vanish). The food is good, but it can get tiresome eating the same food each week. But its nice coming home and not having to worry about food. Its one of the furthest away (by only 10 minutes) from campus, but it means you get that extra 10 minutes of fitness!
