Simpsons is honestly an excellent choice for my first year, and I will try to live here again for my second. I live in a flat of 11 (yes, that's a lot of people) but our kitchen is huge and fully renovated. It is a pleasure to spend time and cook there. My room is a large en-suite and all I could ask for. The neighbourhood is safe and beautiful, and I honestly prefer it over living in the center. Buses and shops are a 3-minute walk. Maintenance is really good and whenever something was wrong with my room, someone was there to fix it the same day. There are no common social spaces between flats and so the only way to socialize is outside or in each other's flat. However, it was still really social and every night there's a motive in someone's flat (even in covid). The only thing I hate is having to pay so much money for the washers/dryers. There are only 3 washers for the whole accommodation and I had to go wash early in the morning to find a washer available.

The common room is lacking in space in my flat, the decor is old fashioned - not a big fan of the vivid blue carpet. The window locks make it hard to get enough air into the building and it is often too hot. We told the building management this and they told us 'it's not too hot', well, I think the client is the important one when determining the temperature. There have been multiple wasp invasions also, which is pretty unsafe as a housemate of mine was stung on her first day. My room was dusty and dirty upon entry, I actually sat down and got quite upset about how it looked. The building needs a fair bit of work, especially for £155 a week, but the location is quite good.

It's in a lively student area so there's lots of shops etc around and very good transport links however I wouldn't consider it good value for money because the furniture is very basic, some kitchens are very small and it is not very well maintained; washing machines constantly break and a lot of the block doors are loose, making it easy for people not in your block to get in.

I wouldn't really recommend, there is a lot better accommodation for the same price and in a better location! Simpsons is a bit run down

Although simpsons halls is further away from campus compared to other halls, it was a great place to spend my first year at university. The social part was perfect, and the rooms were good for the price. With a £1 bus ride straight to campus, simpsons halls will offer a great first year experience! The only downside will be that there is no common room - although by making friends around the blocks, there's no reason why you can't hang out, watch TV or play games in your communal kitchen!
