Location was amazing (1min walk to campus). The kitchen was very modern and spacious with loads of storage and equipment. Room was ok. It has everything that you'll need it to have - bed was comfortable and 3/4 so it was spacious, bathroom was good the only problem I had with it was a little leak, but property management was quick to respond, the heater was not that great really it struggled to keep the small room warm (it was also broken when I moved in), the desk was super large which was awesome, there is no warderobe so clothes go in the desk drawers which can be annoying at times, the window was quite small so not much light was getting in the room. My room was facing the uni, but there is a big and busy motorway between the uni and the building so if the window is open is always very loud (quiet when closed). Flats/kitchens do not get cleaned by staff. Most people in the building generally don't care about uni so expect a lot of noise from around 7pm to 3-4am.
The bathrooms flood every single time you have a shower, one of the only accomodations with a single bed, awful social experience (nothing ever happens). The location is great but thats about it. If you stayed here youd genuinly be stupid, Winn Studios and Liberty Quay are miles better and around the same price. Dont waste your time or money.
Location is more than ideal, you're literally 30 seconds away from campus (not exaggerating, it's one 50m bridge away). The rooms are pretty standard, not tiny not huge, but for the same amount of money (sometimes less) and not much further away you can get a double bed, laminate floors and even sometimes a washing machine in your flat (which will save lots throughout the year). The washing machine and dryers are pretty steep, about £3.50 and £1.70 respectively. The management team are very helpful, quick to respond. But lock out, and stuff like that...can take a while, and get things like which flat you're in wrong, leading to and even longer wait. If you go, look out for Nicola, she's always happy to help and makes a huge effort to!
Very outdated halls , interior is old and not aesthetically pleasing. The shower floods the bathroom floor and there is no extractor fan which makes maintaining a clean bathroom very difficult and causes damp/mould to form . Would recommend somewhere such as liberty quay for better value for money . Halls are also quite unsociable and there is no social space or common room.
If you want vomit at the bottom of the stairs, constant fire alarms, and flatmates who don't care about university, then Camden Court is the right place for you! Come stay at this overpriced, poorly managed accommodation, but don't bother bringing any bedding because you won't be able to sleep anyway. Enjoy having wifi? Sorry sunshine, none of that here, as the internet speed is about as fast as a dead snail. Love animals? Well, even though you can't bring your own pets, you'll enjoy seeing the rats scampering around outside the entrance. But please, come stay with us and give us £120+ per week for a room with a bathroom that floods every time you have a shower, and cry when you realise you've spent your student loan on this place, when you could have shared a house for half the price.
Brilliant location; Doctors,Town and City Campus are all within a 10 minute walk. Staff are really friendly and always happy to help. Rooms are decent and not particularly spacious if you're looking for a large room.
Modern halls with great value for money. En suite is a great plus. I've found that it's a very unsocial halls of residence compared to the likes of glenamara or winn studios. But it just depends who's living in the flats by you as other floors seem to be more social.
