As a student that’s lived here for the 2018-2019 term, I can absolutely say that beechcroft was amazing for Me personally, but it certainly needs improvement. Let’s start with the worst part. Dan and Abby (the student wardens). They were two of the four wardens in beechcroft and honestly I have no idea how they got the job or kept it. They were constantly lying to the accommodations officer Matthew Nichols about situations that never existed, they even bullied and reported the other two wardens that actually did their job well and actually interacted with the students. They were hypocrites that got many reports but for some reason mr.nichols never took it further, even after a petition signed by half of the building OR the countless reports towards them. The cleaners Gary and Roy are genuine people that push beyond their job expectations but are undervalued by the university itself. The university never cared for the students but instead tried to cover their own backs.
Beechcroft is okay for some people who like to socialise and get to know the other students that study different subjects. The caretakers are lovely people to be around, always great to see them walking about. I've had an issue with the ovens turning off earlier than 11. The walls are a little damp.
This was my first time living in student accommodation and even i know that this is NOT how your suppost to do student accommodation. The kitchens, showers and toilets are all absolutely disgusting, you get the cleaners walking into your room without a care if your indecent, the wardens are all power crazy, incredibly rude, judgmental people who have no idea what they are doing half the time, are no help to anyone, break all the rules themselves, and love to give people grief over the tiniest things, threatening that they will write reports resulting in us getting evicted, for absolutely no reason. If you are a new NUA student, take this warning and DO NOT LIVE HERE. this is not how you want to kick off your university life, you will have an awful year living here and it will effect your ability to complete your course work. the rent you have to pay is basically a robbery and NOT WORTH IT AT ALL. Once again, do not live here, go private, like i wish i did.
For all the students applying to live at Beechcroft. Heres a bit of a caution. Don't let the woods (household heath) distract you, There are plenty of other parks to go to for walks. If you're moving to Beechcroft for that, then I wouldn't recommend you to stay there. The reason why I put Hall Management as a 1 star, is because NUA hires students to be wardens. They are unprofessional and very rude individuals. I could go far and say at least two of them are avaricious. They make you feel uncomfortable when there present as they walk around in packs which they're too afraid to even interact with anyone else in Beechcroft other than them selfs and others who suck up to them (which would be the wardens in the upcoming academic years) I would Advise Matt, Who is the accommodation officer to look closely into who he's hiring as wardens and wouldn't just take the recommendation from the other wardens. and I take the complaints towards them seriously, as this is a professional matter.
over priced and depressing. The walls are paper thin so you can hear everything your neighbour gets up to. there is damp in some of the rooms. the ovens gets turned off at 10.30 which means if you finish uni late and have to walk back (which takes 35 mins) you could have only 45 mins to cook your dinner.
