Most helpful review

Stayed here for 2 years and absolutely loved it. As an international student, I felt very taken care of and the staff were all lovely, helpful and very accommodating to any problems I had. One of the cheapest student accommodations at NTU and the free bus pass sealed the deal for me. You can use the free bus pass on any Nottingham City Transport bus around the city and beyond. I will say the location is quite far from the city, but the frequent busses of 70 and 71 really mitigated that problem for me. There's always a staff member at the reception at all times to collect parcels/letters and I never had a problem with collecting them.

Would highly recommend going to any accommodation apart from this one. If you don't have a choice, definitely go for phase 2 over phase 1. The rooms in phase 1 feel like a prison cell and conveniently they don't post any photos of the rooms from Phase 1 on the website so you naturally assume they're at least somewhat similar. The reception staff were usually quite nice but the security guards were unbearable. They would constantly target our flat for noise at ~10-11pm on weekends, but would do nothing about the people screaming and shouting in the courtyard at 2-3am on weekdays. So much inconsistency it was extremely unprofessional. To top off the ordeal I was charged a ridiculous amount of money for my mattress to be replaced when I'm absolutely certain there was nothing wrong with the mattress when I left. Wifi was pretty fast but unreliable as well, it would drop multiple times a day.

Do not apply here, there are plenty of other options. Staff are rude and accused me of something that someone else did, and then they twisted the story and lied. Didn’t even get an apology. Scammed me with my deposit refund, claimed there was a stain on the mattress but I never spilled anything on the bed. Didn’t notice any stains since the colour and pattern of the bed makes it look like there’s no stain.

Though 15 min ride from uni, there is a bus stop nearby and a free bus far for the entire year

Although one of the cheapest halls at Trent, it is still way overpriced (paying £4500 for the year 2018/19). The only real social spaces are the small common rooms or the outside courtyards which more often than not are left empty which can be a bit daunting if you end up in a flat with people you don’t get along with. Luckily I got on with my flat mates which meant that I had a good social experience but I imagine it could be quite isolating if you didn’t get on with them, especially with the distance (20 minute bus ride) from the centre of notts.

It's as cheap as it feels. It has a courtyard that people socialize in but mainly smokers. There's nothing to do in the area/within walking distance; you're going to have to catch a bus to do anything outside the building apart from go to the off licence. There is however a petrol station 10 mins walk away next to a MacDonald's and a couple supermarkets 15-20 mins walk away. There are very occasionally little things that the staff organize e.g. cakes at reception. Most of the staff are friendly and caring. The cleaners clean frequently; sometimes more thoroughly than other times. The internet is really fast and has only been down once or twice in the past year. If you can afford to go to a better located accommodation I'd highly recommend doing so, but if not it doesn't matter too much.

The only issue is that the location is far away from campus, although my time in the maltings has been amazing and there is more of a community and everyone gets to know each other. Great social scene, however Phase 1 which I was living in had more of one than for those living in phase 2. Despite the rooms being bigger in phase 2, the social scene for phase 1 makes it more worthwhile and i would recommend staying there for the year

I have stayed here in first year and would strongly advise anyone to keep away. The location is very poor miles away from the university and city center, it has ruined my first year experience. It is very dirty and the furnishing is out dated. No living space in flats , just one shared between the entire accommodation downstairs. Can hear the main road traffic through the window as the windows are thin, and the walls are also extremely thin. The only good thing is big sized rooms.

So much fun, I met lots of great people. Very sociable which I really wanted however I am in phase 2 which isn’t as sociable as phase 1. So if you really want a great social experience defo go into phase 1 as they have more people and a big courtyard everyone goes to after a night out.

You know everyone, there are two courtyards and common rooms and you all catch the bus together, it's a real community and you get to know so many different people (legit like a family)

The square in the middle is a great place to meet people. And the buses that take you to freshers are the best thing ever! The rooms have a great about of space and large desks and food shops like Aldi, Sainsburys and Tesco express are right round the corner. The worst thing is the bus ride in but the bus stop is right outside so its not too bad.

Great halls, little bit far out from the city centre campus. Free bus out on for us though, and free bus passes for those who had to travel to Clifton campus. Had an amazing freshers year here and made some great friends. Was happy to fresher rep there again the year after.

I think these halls are good in terms of monitoring the staff are friendly and good at their job however the distance from the city is a pain and it is not that sociable.
