Reasonable enough. Location excellent - closest halls to central campus. Management could be improved - endless people turning up to your flat to do things with no prior warning whatsoever, can be an inconvenience at times. Cleaning generally okay, although some days they will forget to empty your bin. No common room/social spaces. Social experience will depend on the type of person you are - tuesday and saturday nights are incredibly noisy until the early hours of the morning which can be annoying at times. Wi-fi could be improved.
We have no common room, but most halls don't anyway so were not too fussed. Communal kitchen area could be bigger, for ten people we don't have a lot of room. Cleaner is great, very kind and helpful. If some things broken, once reported it takes little time to be repaired. Takes two minutes to get to lecture theatres, 20 seconds to get to the union club and pub. Very expensive when you realise that I'm going to be paying almost half the price next year... Its a shame they keep increasing rent prices.
Value for money is okay but not great when you consider the newer halls get charged the same and they have nicer, newer kitchens with two grills, two microwaves (we only have 1) and an extra fridge between the same amount of people. Cleaning is good, kitchen twice a week, bathroom once, bins emptied daily. No common room but the kitchen is a great social space. Best thing by far is location - could not ask to be more central to campus, I can see the Square and the LCR from my kitchen window. SUCH a convenient place to live!
