Everything is exactly how it was advertised on the website. Possibly the best location to live in Norwich, nothing is more than a short walk away. Staff are incredibly friendly and I'll definately be staying next year !

benedict's gate is a good place to live overall, the city centre and university itself only 10 minutes away and easy to get to with just one road to follow, also have plenty of shops near with Tesco and coop down the road. The staff are friendly and security is okay. the building itself is nice, the social spaces are quite small. Rooms are a good size and kitchens are fully equipped. benedict's doesnt really care about visitors you can have them as often as you want. But everywhere has downsides, benedict's houses under 18s so you could be living with 16/17year olds. Maintenance is temperamental in my opinion, showers block easily and occasionally run out of water, sinks also run out of cold water often. You cannot smoke in the courtyard past 11pm so you have to smoke in the car park which can be sketchy with homeless people. all the rooms are the same size but you pay more just to be a higher floor which is a bit of a scam, otherwise its okay and a nice place to live for first year.

It’s very very loud here and the windows are loose so you can hear everyone outside. There’s a very fast turnover of security guards so most of them don’t know what they’re doing. When I moved in parts of my studio didn’t work so i couldn’t cook for 2 weeks. It’s absolutely boiling at all times because there is no air con and you can’t open the windows. Wifi constantly disconnects. If you’re on the bottom floor you can pretty much hear everytime someone flushes. There’s a “cafe” which is 2 vending machines. The study area is attached to the lounge so quiet study is basically not possible, there’s also only 1 lounge so it gets commandeered and not really shared. The rooms are absolutely tiny for the price. Studio kitchens have no storage space and the freezer is big enough for a bag of peas, you have no access to an oven so have to learn to cook with a microwave and hob. The toilets struggle to flush.

Benedict's Gate is a great hall to live in! The location is perfect, the social spaces are really good (and big, which is great with distancing!) and the staff are almost all really kind and eager to help with any questions or concerns. I also know they've got lots of plans for when social events are able to take place again. One downside is that the internet plan limits how many devices I can use. My biggest concern is that the security staff here is... really bad. They're hostile, don't speak much English and just don't do their jobs- i've never seen them outside of sat in reception with their feet up on their phones, playing games or watching TV shows while ignoring genuine issues. At night when I've reported loud noises they've taken a long time to go and feebly attempt to stop the disruption that's usually over by the time they get there- and then they come into my flat to tell me they couldn't help!? I appreciate them wanting to tell me but it's 4am! Let me sleep :/

Even if there were some hiccups at the beginning of my stay at the accommodation the management managed to sort every issue and still provide a welcoming experience with online events to take part in even with restrictions in place. The location is absolutely amazing with amazing wifi and a lovely looking building.

Really enjoyed my time here, brilliant staff keep the place alive with fun social events and chats. The whole building looks/ feels lovely that you forget you're at the centre of the city. Only a couple minutes to NUA and the main city area. Strongly recommend if you are looking for a fun, relaxing place to stay whilst studying.
