in my opinion Norton court is too far from the university without any transport help and it isn't worth the money.

Is it in a "safe" part of Nottingham?
By member637711 On 6th May 19
Not really. Really rough area. I'm a girl and I would never walk around on my own after dark. I'm pretty sure the house next door is for drug addicts. Lots of questionable characters roaming the streets nearby at all hours. Radford is considered one of the dodgiest areas in Nottingham so if you can stay away I would recommend it.

This halls of residence is possibly the worst i’ve ever seen!! First of all let’s start with value for money, for what norton court is the price is extremely high! The price for me was not far off the really nice accommodations at NTU. The bedrooms are very small, however this was expected. What is most unfair is that only 2 blocks have fully refurbed kitchens, with all new appliances, massive ceiling to floor fridges and separate massive freezer, and then the rest of the blocks have the most basic, frankly old fashioned kitchens. My flat had a half fridge freezer with 5 shelf’s in the fridge to share between six flat mates, it was a joke. Our freezer broke one day and we have to bin all the food that was in there and lost all our money. The oven was s*** and started pouring smoke into the whole kitchen whenever you was cooking something. What the annoying part was was that I had to deal with all this when my friend was staying in flat 1 having a beautiful modern kitchen.

Norton Court is located off campus in a run down area. I felt very uncomfortable walking to and from university on my own. I would not recommend Norton Court because of the location.

Really enjoyed my time at Norton Court. Yes, it is not in the 'nicest' area of Nottingham, but it is gated and I'm a girl and I felt quite safe walking around most of the time (just wouldn't recommend doing this after dark) you just have to be sensible. The staff are so friendly and helpful; any issues we had in our flat, were dealt with quickly, you just have to ask. We even got an extra fridge because ours was a bit crowded. The rooms are pretty standard for the 'not-brand-new' accommodations. You get a reasonable sized desk, bed, cupboard and bathroom - key! It is a small room, but I didn't really feel cramped. Now for the bit that I was dreading when I was reading these reviews last year - the distance from uni. It is a 25 min walk to uni, and 15 min walk back. This is because of a rather steep hill that you will have to walk up. Yes, this is annoying but you do get used to it (and helps beat those 2am McDonalds). Honestly, I quite liked a bit of distance from the uni 'bubble'.

Very good place and good cleaning. But it is too far from the university as it is a 25minute walk up hill. The area it is in isn’t the best either and many people are alway sat outside trying to sell things.

It’s far out from the uni (half an hour walk) would recommend going for something closer in to the city just to ensure you’ve got everything you need right on your doorstep

DO NOT PICK THIS ACCOMMODATION! It is honestly an awful accommodation and out of all of nottingham trent’s uni accommodations it is by far the worst. First of all let’s start with the rooms, a simple basic room, obviously they have just gave you the least amount of room that was legally allowed, however it isn’t that bad if you have a small bedroom. The bathroom is very basic, however mould growing in the shower. My kitchen was extremely basic, block 1 and 2 are updated and modern however all over kitchens are so old and out dated for the price you’re paying. I think they update a new block every year but it is just ridiculous that they make everyone pay the same price when the lucky ones in block 1 and 2 get a completely different kitchens, with brand new ovens fridges freezers and appliances. Our stuff in our kitchen was so old that it was falling apart, the oven let out so much smoke when you was cooking, the fridge was tiny and meant to hold food for 6 full time students?

If I could give no stars I most definitely would. This accommodation wouldn’t even satisfy a dog. The area is dangerous , the distance from uni is ridiculous. The basic facility’s are unseen if not , not even there . I could go on but to sum up do not choose norton court. Go for private accommodation

I lived at Norton court in my first year of university. The social aspect was only good due to being dealt a good flat. Location was terrible and not something a new student to the Nottingham area would be happy with. I wasn’t made aware how limited spaces were on campus accommodation and ended up devastated with what I got given.

These halls were quite expensive for what they were, outdated small rooms with a common room that wasn’t great. However, everyone living here was extremely social which made freshers amazing.

Norton court is very basic student accomodation. It’s location is too far from the university and makes the social experience with students from other accommodations more difficult. All of my friends on my course lived in the city so it was hard to see them and my flat was very unsociable. As well as this, if you like to go out a lot be prepared to spend a lot of money on taxis because they can get quite pricey after a night out and I wouldn’t say the area feels safe enough to walk home. The common room is a nice idea but never gets used by students. Also, although the WiFi is fast, it frequently cuts out and takes you to a students com website every other time you try to search something. This is very annoying as it takes forever to do work. However, the cleaners come once a week and are very good and nice. The management are very nice as well. Overall, I would choose a city centre accomodation like sandby or gillstreet

Very social halls. Great bus trips on freshers week to the clubs. If you don't like walking 20 mins to uni then get a years bus pass. Aldi and B&M are literally next door and are brilliant as its so cheap and I could do a weekly shop for about £15. Security guards are great. Pray you get one of the flats in block 1 (like I was) as you will get a modern kitchen but if you don't the kitchens in other blocks are not great. The Wi-Fi is good for streaming and was a bit patchy if you use it for gaming. The common room is good I only went in there once as I had good flat mates but if you don't get on with your flat make an effort to be social in the common room or with other people from your block. Make an effort with your flat opposite then it will just feel like one big flat of 12 if you get on. Its not in the best area as it is in Radford however I have walked home many times in just speedos from Ocean and I never had any trouble. Had the best year of my life here and met mates for life.

Norton Court itself is not a bad place to stay. Heading to uni is quite a pain (20 min walk). People hardly use the common room, since most people chill in their own flats with friends anyway. Wifi is alright for the most times. Not the fastest, but at least it works. Hall management is great, lovely people who will help you with your issues and aren't shy to have a chat with you.

Norton court is standard, with standard rooms and standard rate for first year. It is located a 20 minute walk from uni which is a pain when there are some cheaper options right in the centre which are private accommodation, with double beds etc. (Goldsmith court, glass house etc) Norton court is right next to an Aldi, Poundland and B&M however, and those in the centre have to take a long walk to get to the nearest cheap supermarket.

This is the smallest halls I've seen and far from good!. So many issues that will need to be resolved even before they start. The blocks are very basic or below standard in my view. The en-suites are just big enough to stand straight with paint stripping off and taps not working properly and a light that can't decide whether it wants to come on. Bedroom is very small and drab. The kitchen is supposed to cater for 6 students well how do you fit your food, ingredients, pots and pans in one small cupboard and 2 small shelves?! What happened to a set of drawers for the cutlery and utensils. Ironing board without a cover, still waiting on recycling bins and staff room lounge chairs as I call them with stains. Not expecting 5 star but this is not even well maintained. Students take out loans as well as parents helping to pay well over £100 per week for this? It's just about making money! One of the blocks has been refurbished, in 4 months they only managed 1 block? That seems fair?!

might not have been the nicest and poshest halls but I spent the best year of my life here. most other halls at ntu don't have social spaces other than the kitchens so that's really where norton court is better than some of the more expensive ones. would recommend norton to anyone at trent

It's way over priced for a simple box room and a communal kitchen between 6. Some rooms have sofas and nice kitchen living area for show but the rest are full of faults and need changing.
