Very social halls, kind of pay for what you get though... If you don't mind basic living then it's fine. Great location to other halls and the university campus.

Just avoid this place. We were left without a working shower, the bathroom door wouldn’t close, the light wouldn’t work, we had damp all over the ceiling that gave me a nasty cough. Not to mention being regularly kept awake and woke up at 6 in the morning by groups of lads off their faces on god knows what and screaming girls. The accommodation team are useless and the place is more like a youth hostel.

You literally get what you pay for, I stayed here first year and personally wish I’d have stayed in trinity square or something. There are no social spaces except a tiny area in entrance that would fit 6/7 people maximum, very quiet on a weekend compared to other accoms I visited. Boiler broke a lot along with WiFi which is shocking. Bedrooms are alright but only some have been updated, kitchens okay but in some flats you had to share one oven between 7 which is ridiculous

Covid-19: Didn’t get a response when I emailed the person in charge regarding a money matter which I feel is very unprofessional

Value for money is average, shared kitchen/bathroom & a side toilet and shower. The bedroom is where the value really is - it is somewhat spacious and very well laid out. You may want to stick a TV on the windowsil though since the long desk is off to the side. Plenty of shelves and storage & a decently big sink. The location is great. Right next to City library/student union & a 5ish minute walk away from Northumberland St. Bus stop to coach Lane is just over the bridge & across the road. Cleaning, if you have flat mates like mine, is terrible. Pro tip: buy some cheap flip flops so you don't need to expose your precious bare feet to the fungal infected catastrophe that is the bathroom/shower/toilet floor. It may not start off grim but once 8 people begin taking daily showers it'll sharp get there. Social spaces are limited to: uncomfortable stained-sofas and metal stools in your kitchen, a small area with three 2-person sofas and a tv in clear shot of the entrance and staff desk

''It's what you make of it'' is by far the worst way to describe these Halls. I spent my first year in these so called refurbished halls and no matter what they say no amount of work can ever make them acceptable. They call them sociable but what they should say is it's a drug house and the only socialising is at 4am keeping anyone who actually has lecturers or exams or work awake. The house management don't understand the meaning of a contract because they breach it on a weekly basis at least; entering flats with sometimes no notice and very rarely 24 hours, making demands that take away the point in paying to live there and leaving students sat in the dark or with no hot water or even ants in CLEAN kitchens because repairs aren't ever seen as urgent enough. The fact these halls are run by Sodexo the company who also run prisons around the UK suggests it all because it is like an open prison rather than a safe enjoyable environment for student living.
