Sandby accommodation may not seem like the best option, but it contains all the necessity's which is basically the same as byron and hampden building, but it is the best value for money. If you really like to go crazy during the whole year for the nightlife, I do suggest going to hampden, They are known to be another breed of people for it. Byron is so expensive, and we have found that they have everything the same but just a little nicer, but as a student I found that it isn't worth that extra bit of money just for accommodation. Living in sandby can seem like a lot living with 25 other people, but with 2 kitchens and the fact that not everyone is in there and cooking it won't feel like it's a lot.

Sandby Hall is perfect if you like nightlife and socializing. Not great if you value your sleep. You have all the noise from Hampden, Byron and your own flat to deal with all night long. Almost every room grew mould at some point in the year, which staff blamed on leaving windows closed after showering - I never closed mine. The Kitchen space is awful for the amount of people, if one person doesn't wash up you lose a huge chunk of your counter space. Nothing was set up to equally divide cupboard space, it was take what you can get, which meant my cupboard was under the oven, leading to my food spoiling quicker. Same issue with the fridge and freezer space. The windows fog easily, and if you're unlucky like I was you'll have a window right next to the bed that has no curtain. The shower heads are replaced once a term by the friendly staff, and the cleaners couldn't be nicer! Night staff also lovely. Internet would drop out randomly, a simple fix is disconnecting and reconnecting.

Sandby is an overpriced dump but you do it for the experience and fun of living with 12 people and hell is it worth it for 1st year!!!, currently live with 4 lads all of whom i was at Sandby with in 1st year. The beds are appauling however and if you are tall (i'm 6ft 4) good luck to you fitting in the single beds let alone if you have company...... Noisy halls to be in as life is one big party here so if you are not comfortable with that then look elsewhere however you would be missing out on a unique student halls experience!!!

Great halls and best place to meet a lot of people. Roughly 20 people on each floor makes it very sociable and occasionally loud (not a bad thing for most)

For people who suffer with anxiety like myself, it's not great. Too noisy but had no choice due to personal reasons.

Overpriced but so is all NTU accommodation, your paying for the experience and is well worth it. The large flats mean it's great for socialising as your bound to like someone in a flat of 13!

Brilliant halls with amazing social atmosphere. Perfect for social people and for a very good price. Ground floor have totally refurbished kitchens big enough to double as a common room.

I did experience a fair few problems living here, but I think those problems could have been the same in any of the uni halls. Choose first or second floor of suggested! If I could go back and do it again, I would still chose Sandby. The large flats and access throughout the building allowed us to mingle a lot and access all the flats without a lock. I think this makes Sandby one of the most sociable halls and it was great fun!

The amount of space in the kitchen is far to small for so many people. The corridors have a bad smell. Security is poor it's easy for people to walk into the corridor as you only need a key for the main entrance not individual flats
