It’s okay. Rooms are quite nice but the en-suite is very very tiny & the shower head is attached to the ceiling & can’t be moved or taken down which isn’t the best. The kitchen is ugly and fairly old. Which some people might be fine with, everything works fine. It’s a very very noisy accommodation so buy earplugs.

University halls are slightly expensive but are more involved with freshers week due to the help from fresher reps.

Location is pretty good. However it’s pretty basic and gross, and depending on what flat you pick within the accomodation you will either get a basic kitchen with a table or a kitchen with a sofa, table and island even though you are all paying the same money. The rooms can also range depending on who stayed in it before you. For example, my carpet is covered in stains and I have holes in some walls. The hall management is pretty mediocre, if you make a noise complaint they rarely go and check it out. Equally, one time I rang and got rude response and shouted at down the phone by an old bald man, who is also rude to anyone who enters the reception area. WiFi is pretty good, bit of a pain to add devices. Pretty expensive for what you get, so you are probably more paying for the location. Save your money and get a decent flat with some mates in the second year.

Very convenient place to live as is only a 2 minute walk to the city site in Nottingham. Only problem is the issues we had with the boiler which caused us all in my flat to have freezing cold showers for about 3weeks until the staff figured out what was wrong with it :/ The response to issues gets better as the term progresses and it is a good place to stay if studying at the city site, just very expensive for what is available! This is the same for most city campus accommodation though!

Rooms are of a decent size with ensuit. Kitchen is small for six people with little social space and several problems before we moved it in such as broken fan and grill. Not cleaned to a high standard for the money the halls costs

Gill street have a fantastic team of staff that are always on site, they will help you with anything you need. For what you pay a week shouldn't be that price for what it is, it should be less. The kitchen areas are alright, just having hard wooden seats or plastic chairs is annoying after a while, needs to have mini sofas or something. Overall its decent, good location for the uni. just the furniture could be a little better

Although yes Gill Street is located in a great area for everything, I think we pay too much for what we are getting. Of course we each have en suit bathrooms but there is no social area, simply just the kitchen which isn't exactly comfortable. Along with the beds, I had to go to the doctors due to the pain I was experiencing sleeping in the beds and currently on back pain relief medication. Luckily, being an art student, there's weeks where I have to isolate myself in my room and my block is very quiet but I think the social area desperately needs improving for future students! Other than that, I like with very respectable people and that experience has been fine, just a few tweaks but I definitely believe we should be paying less.

Compared to other halls Gill street is very expensive for the little you get i.e no sofas or TV - which a lot of my friends have for cheaper. The wifi is also rubbish. However everything else is great especially location and I would still recommend to future students.

Way too expensive for what you get, not worth the money at all. Cleaning is good, but cleaners are too noisy - on their phone shouting in the morning. Right near city centre so a 5 minute walk from everything you need. Only social experience you get is in freshers, even then, the reps are annoying and you pretty much stay in your block, or just your floor.

basic accomodation, getting old in places could benefit from updates/deep clean. (stairway to flats in particular)
