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

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.

Not worth the £5k+ at all, save yourself the trouble and go private.

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.
