Given that it's located in the countryside and takes around 40 mins to get to Nottingham on the bus, the location is about as good as it can be all things considered. The nearest town of Southwell is very quiet with very little other than pubs and a small football pitch for leisure. The prices are also quite steep given that the radiators take a long time to warm up and the boilers infrequently stop working for a few hours at a time.
•located in southwell, this is picturesque and calm. however extremely isolating and to really do ANYTHING you either need to get a bus into the city or the local area. •resident associates are advertised however have never been seen or done anything other than drop off leaflets can can easily be an email. •security are hardly seen unless an event is going on locally on campus. •the cleaning team are inconsistent, ill-managed, and sometimes sloppy. with cleaning days changing, the floor left soaking, and bins sometimes not touched. •the bar is small but packs a punch. it’s ideal for gatherings and has constant events going on. though maybe it just seems great because the campus has nothing else to offer. •everyone knows almost everyone. it’s a real community. this makes things more pleasurable. •only on one day ever has the wifi ever been bad. other than this it’s exceptional.
It's in the sticks so if you want to be out in city every other night this isn't the place. But brack bar is a great night out. Everyone knows everyone so you can always meet up with people. Great place with great people.
Its is a good 40min drive from anywere with a club. The cleeners like to bang hoovers off the doors at 8am. The washing facilities are always In use. The common room has 2 2-seater sofers for 6 people. The WI-FI will direct you to the "student com" website every outher time you click a link whitch is VERY annoying when trying to do work.and manternats doint seem to come on weekends so if your loo starts leeking on a friday night you have to live with it untill monday morning. And as I am 6" 6' there shower is at about my shoulder and there is not enough room to bend down. But the people are frendly. There is s good community feel amoung residents there is a SU bar about 30sec work from your front door and you are suranded by nature not to menton less that 1min work from class rooms.
