Very social Accommodation. I would highly recommend it, the only problem is that the beds are quite small

Had a good experience with my accommodation. It helped me with transitioning to student life and met some great people. However, there should be more social spaces within the accommodation.

Byron Residence is an expensive property with a complicated mix of pros and cons. It's pretty much as close as you can get to city campus, a short walk to Victoria Centre and Arboretum, next to a tram stop and above the student union. For most of the year, noise hasn't been overly bothersome despite being at the heart of student living. My room has been nice enough with a single bed, ensuite bathroom, desk and cupboard. The kitchen is surprisingly big with two ovens/fridges/freezers/stovetops/sinks and plenty of cupboards, overlooking the centre of city campus. Reasonably priced laundry room is a short walk away at the reception. The wifi has always been working well and cleaners visit weekly. In general, it's a pretty decent place to live. However... numerous issues spring to mind despite the pros. There were a couple of incidents of the fridges/freezers thawing. The door handle to the building was missing for months. Construction was extremely loud for the latter half of the year.

The best uni ran accom that you can go for at NTU. In the city centre and you have the tram on your doorstep which is great if you're new to the city. Highly recommend, I met all my uni friends in this accom as the flats and so big, clean and social.

Good Wifi but it felt that I was paying a lot for a small room and no added amenities that I could for free. A social space would be nice but we are in the centre of campus so other social spaces are super close.

Byron was a great choice of accommodation to enter my uni experience into. It has all the amenities one would need, big kitchen and social spaces, and was cleaned weekly. The bedrooms are slightly small, but very modern and have everything a student will need. Also perfect location, 2 minute walk to university.

Byron was amazing, large single bed opposite the library in the centre. My room was discounted as it was above SU so it got very noisy on certain night but it wasn’t an issue if I was out as well

Fantastic location, great for clubs and events. However, the sound insulation is extremely minimal and you will hear noise from above and below. I would only recommend this accommodation to people who plan on going out very often, due to the noise and lack of study/quiet social spaces.

Byron was my first year halls, it was great and very convenient. It is definitely worth the money, however unlike other accommodations it is not the most social and you only tend to meet those on your floor (your flat and one other).

Do not spend your money on Byron, it’s not worth it and your halls will end up looking dreadful no matter how much you spend. Students are animals! We had eggs on the ceilings and beer, butter, milk etc all over the floor. Not cool.

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.

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.

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.
