the best thing about byron is how close it is to uni and uni facilities. It’s really modern and the rooms are a decent size. The beds longer than your normal single so it’s hard to get a cover to fit! the wet room is quite small but it’s bearable. the noise from the su directly below isn’t that bad at all! there’s only really noise on wednesday, saturday and the occasional friday night. don’t let freshers put you off because it’s really not as loud as it is then! staff are really nice and manager mike is lovely! they left us chocolates when they gave us new sofas for being patient! any problems are dealt with quickly but they don’t say when they’ve been so if your problem isn’t as obvious like a broken oven then it’s hard to know if it’s been fixed as theres no evidence that staff have been. i’ve teally enjoyed living in byron and i don’t go clubbing all that often or anything but i’ve still enjoyed living here! the kitchen is big enough for 6 people but can get slightly crowded.
Disgusted by the staff here. Generally they are unapproachable, unhelpful and very rude. They will purposely sit out the way in the back office when you want some help or to collect a parcel and will completely ignore you. The night time staff are the worst, especially staff member Kevin who is very argumentative. I also had an incident where the staff threw away one of my parcels without my permission after THEY had broken it and were not apologetic about the situation at all. The cleaners don't even clean the kitchen. It's such a hyped up accommodation and not even worth it and is really loud because of the Student Union. SO overpriced too. I'd stick with a cheaper private accommodation when it comes to Nottingham Trent.
Modern but overly priced... also till the end of july? who is staying till then. AND cleaners don't do their job. My flat mates never cleaned up after themselves and then the cleaner didn't even clean the sides/tables/floor...
The bathrooms/ wet rooms are Tiny. The noise from the su is awful, I'm kept up to all hrs even during exam times . The whole building is designed badly. The price us far far to much, go with one Of the private halls. It is vastly overpriced and overhyped for what is a substandard hall of residence. Due to its price I have struggled all year with no money.
Best halls if you want a great social experience. The rooms are lovely, modern, small but what you expect for uni with your own en-suite. Very social halls with something always happening allowing u to meet great people. Very safe halls as well with security monitoring everything 24:7 however not strict so still allowed parties.
Great until you want to get work done or revise, at which point you're battling the wifi all day and the noise all night, almost impossible to get to sleep on a wednessday because of ocean. Basically a noisy version of GSS.
Very rude cleaner - their job to clean and they don't need to make comments if it's messy. I wasn't even at uni for that weekend and I got a mouthful. You have to be really social to live here as it's always busy!
Great location, always felt safe. Rooms and flats were lovely and modern. Unfortunately Student Union noise problem was a huge issue on a Saturday night, as was the lack of enforcement on drug issues within the halls. I wouldn't pick to live here if you prefer a quiet atmosphere.
It's a great halls of residence, however, the people that tend to live here are quite rude. Although they are the sort of people who tend to be going out all the time which may be what you're looking for, there is a big 'lad' culture here. I'd suggest if that's not the type of person you are, then live in Gill street South or Gill street. Personally I wish I had chosen Sandy which is right next door but with a much better atmosphere.
