Been living here a term and I love it, perfect for me. Way nicer than you'd expect it to be. University is what you make it, just be sure to knock on doors first day and hang out in the kitchen during freshers :) You'll have to buy your own cleaning products/toilet paper but it's definitely worth the price. Mostly international students but they're all banter. DEFINITELY GO FOR FLOOR 2!!! Floor 2 or maybe floor 3, literally don't bother with floor 1 and floor 4 they're less sociable and have loads of maintenance issues which aren't present at all on floor 2 or 3.
Stayed here some years back. Location is great as close to Uni, student union, library and town centre. But as most of the reviews have said, it is cold, clinical, a bit depressing. My room never got any sunlight at anytime of day which compounded it. Good if you're on a tight budget and don't really care about luxurious side of things.
Do not recommend living here at all. Its dark, damp and dirty. Theres a lot of black mould in the building and this place needs either a lot of money spent on it or to be knocked down. Its not a very nice atmosphere to live in and its not very ‘wild’, however if you’re looking for somewhere quiet this is it really. We’ve seen a fair few mice near the bins and one rat, which isn’t always something that can be controlled. The rooms are small and aren’t even plaster boarded so are just bare painted brick. The rooms are dark, tiny and dirty when i arrived (i had to scrape somebody elses bogey off my wall). It’s not a very nice place to love however if you value closeness to the university and a low price then id say it might be worthwhile. Just DEFINITELY look round before you choose it. Management arent the most helpful but they try their hardest as they seem to be overloaded with responsibility being in charge of claude gibb also. There are no communal spaces at all. Not recommended
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.
