Most helpful review

Be prepared for bare minimum, unclean when moving in (bugs in my bed), no social spaces (not even enough chairs for the whole flat), mouldy shower that they did not fix. Only good things were the wifi and the heating. Couldnt recommend this place less, no ones know about it not even my student adviser. Just spend the money and get somewhere nicer.

Q&A


Q
Are there washing machines and tumble dryers in this accomodation? If not how do most people do their washing? And also is it mostly first year students that live here? I want to know if it has a partying every other day vibe or not

Cheaper than other accommodation on the campus, quite ugly from the outside, but have same facilities like other places on the campus. More like living in a family house. Kitchen is not the best but so are all the kitchens on the campus. Sharing showers, which is not so bad, as there was 5 people in my house.

Great value for money at just over £80 per week. Great communal shower and plenty of space. The main downside is that the building isn't very attractive, but you get over that pretty quickly. I am so glad i chose wolfson over the more expensive campus accommodation.

Yes we're the cheap seats, but the structure of Wolfson seems to make it more sociable than other halls; each flat functions more like a house, and the shared facilities make or break flat bonding. We're right on campus (but far enough from the LCR not to hear it) and endearingly ugly. I've got exactly the same stuff as other halls, but the lack of plaster on my walls means I pay much less :)

the flats themselves are value for money. However there is a lack of family vibe. The different floors in each flag isolates you and leads to a lack of socialising

As the cheapest accommodation on campus, not a massive amount of effort has gone into making it look pretty, but the actual facilities themselves are all fit for purpose. Maintenance are pretty good at replacing anything that's broken within a few days or so. And the layout of one larger flat (8-14) and one smaller flat (5) in each building, with each individual flat taking up two or three floors, it's laid out more like a house, thus increasing the flat family vibe. Yes, we share bathroom and shower facilities, but they're always well cleaned and looked after

You get what you pay for! Apparently, 'the people make it' but I haven't had that experience.
