Most helpful review

Decor and lighting are cold and clinical and really don't make you feel at home at all - e.g. there's no wallpaper or anything, just bricks painted white, so the rooms are often cold and draughty, insulation isn't helped by the ancient windows. No common rooms, just shared kitchens, which don't really work as a social space. Everything's always out of order, e.g. showers, hot water, fridges and freezers, etc. Security waste their time chasing stoners rather than dealing with actual security issues. A friend of mine in Flats had his flat broken into by strangers high on harder drugs (twice), one of whom tried to bottle one of his flatmates. Security were nowhere to be seen either time.

Hi, I am an alumni of University of Northumbria. I would like to come back to visit the university and would like to stay at university's accommodation for 1 week. Do you provide accommodation for me? How much do you charge?

Cold and clinical as someone already mentioned, a lot of appliances stop working and nothing gets done about it, no social areas so it's hard to make friends, just generally unpleasant.
