£125 a week for a studio room, cheaper by £25 a week than my double en suit at Waterside last year so saving money for a larger and better (for me) room. Room is equipped with everything you need e.g., kitchen appliances, plenty of plug sockets, ethernet ports, lots of storage and a decently spacious bathroom. However, the bathroom is a little prison like with a fixed shower head and a curtain that constantly needs to be moved so it doesn't block the drain, had issues with my bathroom not being fully clean when I moved in and a weird smell that I couldn't seem to get rid of until recently, about a month after moving in. Location is a lot quieter than Waterside though you can often hear some music and general noise, nothing too bad and traffic noise not major. Bus pass to the main campus is given to all residents here so you can get the 19 bus anywhere along the route for free Mon-Fri, takes around 30 mins to get to Waterside and the last one leaves W-side at 20:35, which really sucks.
I didn't have a very good experience in my halls. Probably because I didn't have nice flatmates. I had lots of food stolen... sealed food and the whole thing would be gone. There was 1 common room for the whole Hall. It was far away and just a room with a TV and chairs. The wifi was intermittent but they do provide an Ethernet cable and socket (although mine was broken when I moved in). The cleaners weren't nice. They would come in and complain about us (I was in the room in the kitchen so I heard everything, they used to wake me up). They wouldn't clean unless it was already clean (I used to clean it the night before they came but I gave up on that as I was the only one who did it and the cleaners were still horrible!). They eventually stopped coming to clean our flat completely. The management team are ok, but my sink was blocked when I moved in and I complained in person several times, when I left it was yet to be unblocked. It's alright value for money, and close to lectures
Going into my third year you realise how convienant living in halls was, waking up an hour and a half before a lecture really not ideal... Although there are still some major problems with halls firstly the cleaners, nobody tells you that the cleaners are a TOP UP SERVICE and they will only clean if you flat is clean to start with as wierd as that sounds so don't expect to leave bundles of mess and clear it up coupled with that we had some awfully rude cleaner who we fell out with on multiple occasions!. Price! For me atleast I paid £115 per week for halls that have not been improved for Year, for cooking equipment that was still from the university's college days! The lack of basic cleaning equipment that was provided like a hoover!!! "yes you are not supplied with a hoover! The biggest problem I had is the ease of access resident life and that had entering your flat and room with out your say so which was complete b******. Overall though very average experience
