Good first place but maintenance etc can be quite slow, good potential for facilities but quite a lot is broken, quite unfair giving of rooms (pay same price and some get much more space than others) Shop quite expensive, good laundry facilities and vey close to uni, good for lie-ins! Cleaning staff generally friendly and same with admin and maintenance, flexible with rent payment days if paying with student loan which i found good Starbucks within the halls which is always a bonus Good for a basis, but expensive for what you get

broadgate park is a really great place to make friends and is close to the uni but thats as far as the positives go. unless you're in an ensuite block the kitchen can fit 3 people maximum its stupidly tiny, so don't expect any social space in your flat because you won't get one. the wardens are RIDICULOUS, they're lurk about 24 hours and you'll be given a warning for simply walking back to your flat late at night and wardens constantly let themselves into your flat and room with no warning. i've heard multiple stories of wardens going into rooms and then possessions then going missing, i do not feel safe with them around at all. but unless you want to go into catered accommodation i suppose this is your best option for the distance that it is, and your halls experience is only as good as you make it to be, even if your in s***** halls like broadgate!

Broadgate Park looked nice. Turns out there’s a bit outside of the main place called lower court that they don’t tell you about on the open day though, and it’s far worse. Lower courts is a load of s***, the kitchen literally just isn’t big enough. You get a common room, but it’s over the road, inside the actual broadgate park. Would’ve been nice to have been told about the shot part of broadgate so that I could have applied for somewhere else

Only one common room, studios very lonely. Ensuite is very very small-anyone over 5'10 would seriously struggle. Cafe is never open and there's no longer a shop on site- only expensive vending machines. Bgp is extortionately expensive, especially for a single bed. I have friends in London and Bristol paying less for significantly better. Maintenance and wardens are excellent though and cleaners always say hello. Reception quick to respond but there are problems with security. Location is great and Beeston is a lovely town.

It’s expensive than other halls but give worst services. There are bugs in the carpet. Room heaters don’t work. If you call the maintenance they don’t fix it. They are careless after you deposit money you will be stuck for one year. They return the deposit money very late. In most Facebook pages you will see people try to swap their accommodation in Broadgate park.

Not worth the overpriced rent but closest self-catered. Been living here for 3 months and I have only seen one of my flat mates. The rest never come out of their flats, I don't even know what they look like-it gets boring and lonely. The ensuite studio is very small, the kitchen worktop doesn't fit a standard chopping board so I have to do my food prep at my dining table. Windows only open about 2 inches so it gets too hot. Just add easily gets too cold as radiator only works for half an hour at a time (there is only one button in it that turns it on) and it's all the way by the door. Room was in a bit of a state with stained carpet, uncomfortable springy mattress, marks all over the wall where people have tried to drill in screws, crack in the wall plaster, chips in furniture (wardrobe, kitchen cupboards, dining table). No shower door in tiny en suite, not enough room to stand and shower sprays out of the shower area anyway. Never had a shower without flooding the whole bathroom.

WORST HALL EVER. Pay over the top fees for a hall that is well below what you deserve. Stained carpets, uncomfortable mattresses, poor ventilation (windows open no more than 6 inches), and filthy unacceptably small bathrooms are just the beginning. Walk in to paper-thin doors and rude and unfair tutors and management teams. In the beginning, you will face undergraduates with obnoxious music in house parties; when you complain, the management team snores. But when you alone do little like WATCH A SIMPLE MOVIE (on the laptop speaker FYI) , you are intruded by tutors with a "noise complaint", followed by a warning and fine letter.Why? because the walls are made of cardboard (LITERALLY), and they work for the "welfare", my a**. Why do they not stop the house parties? because hello, majority of their income are from the party people. SO, if you are a serious student looking for peaceful room with good sound-proof walls, good ventilation, and fair teams, DO NOT even think about BGP.

Good internet. Good staff. The problem is that everything in the basic flats is out of date and a little bit crap and it adds up. The kitchens are tiny and far from modern. If I’m paying above £100 a week then it should be better furnished for a self-catered halls.

I live in a studio flat so that means I do not share anything as everything is within my room. Only problem with this is that I suggest you reach out as much as possible to socialise go to the common room and talk to random people as thats the only way if your flat is not as active. The location is of campus but still quite close to the main campus only a 10-15min walk depending on how fast you walk. There's a library here which is very convient always 24hrs. Cleaning is good for places that get cleaning but as I'm in a studio I clean my own room though the hallways are always cleaned which is great. Overall the hall are great it just depends on your luck on flat mates as it can range. But tbh it doesn't matter youll find other people around if you're flat is boring.

If you book an ensuite you are sorted as they are in the new blocks. A lot newer than any hall on campus. New common room and study space is so modern and an awesome place to chill the only problem is that people dont use it. Nevertheless, this can change depending on your batch. I would recomend it for anyone on university park as it is quite close. I love it rebooking next year, Downside: Expensive, no package delivery system.

Loved living at Broadgate first year, had an ensuite standard room. Only complaint is ensuite quite small but that's to expect really in student accommodation. Lucky enough to be put in a smallish block so that we all socialised with the other flats and have made such good friends with everyone in the block not just my flat. Security can be quite strict but only when people complain and maintenance are sometimes slow. Such easy access to campus especially when most my lectures were in Trent/Portland. Do not regret choosing Broadgate as my option, such an amazing experience to live alone!

BGP is divided into Upper and Lower Court. I happened to be placed in the Upper Court area which is... the old buildings. Although the rooms are ok, we have really old windows. So when it is windy outside it is also windy in your room, lol. Kitchen was REALLY small for five people. No social space in the flat. Literally we don't even have a table, extended counter with some science lab stools. It's horrible. Lol. One washing mashine between 30+ people, and after a month they screwed a metal thing over the washing powder & conditioner tray. So you have to put your washing powder with your actual washing and can't use conditioner. It's about 25minute walk to the uni park campus, not "5 minutes" like they advertise. Not a very social setting either, everyone in my block is avoiding each other. The Social Space is always empty, the staff don't know how to set up the very complicated equipment. Also unfair bcs the people in Lower crt pay similar or same money and their flats are much better

It is overpriced for what you get but definitely the best option if you're looking for self catered accommodation. The other options are a bus ride away, and although I have to walk a good 20-30mins to get to my lectures, I reckon it's worth it to avoid the hassle as I can easily pop and see my friends staying in catered halls on campus. I went for en-suite as I really didn't fancy sharing a bathroom with people I didn't know, and an en-suite room guaranteed a newer block. The en-suite is rather small but it gets the job done and is totally worth it compared to some of the shared bathrooms I've seen:/ The shop on site is also so handy as I'm always running out of milk and other bits and bobs, and it's decent prices too! The room itself is a good size, the desk is HUGE and there's tons of storage space. The kitchen is also great, just be aware of messy flatmates! Overall would deffo reccommend:)

It's £1,000 extra for an ensuite which isn't worth the money, other than that can't really fault it. It's located literally at the West entrance to the uni and is the closest you can live without being in catered halls.

The residence is perfectly acceptable in terms of living space and location but the major downside are the quite dreadful security/maintenance staff. They have a rude and vindictive attitude towards the students who are treated as unwanted guests. My advice is to book accommodation early in order to get a place on campus.

People are going off on broadgate. However, living here is lovely. The location is what sold me on the accomodation. If your classes are near the west entrance (Law, Economics, Georgraphy and other social sciences) then this location is so helpful! I would suggest book an en-suit so you can get a newer room. The old blocks are HORRIBLE but the new ones are PERFECT. The common room is not known of. But it's the biggest study area and chill space I've seen compareed to other halls, its just that no one uses them .

Rooms outdated. Kitchen and bathroom inadequate for 7 students, providing little storage space and no communal area. Everything breaks. Cleaners useless. Don't stay here.

It's a room, a kitchen, a place to work. The bare minimum, but enough. The common areas aren't the greatest, but that's perhaps due to the lack of events (or lack of publicity for them...).

I was so disappointed with Broadgate park. Over 2000 students and on any give night the place is dead. Don't stay here

Broadgate Park is quite good, would recommend it if you want self-catered but I'd probably suggest going on campus instead. You get a much better Uni experience in the catered halls communities.

Very good year at Broadgate Park. Head warden could have been easier to get in touch with but aside from that a very good year all round

Great place to live. Love the events going on here, it's like a little student village! Shame it's a bit of a further walk to lectures but love it here.

Very close to campus, small shop within the halls with reasonable prices. Excellent management and support from staff, cleaning normally very good. Expensive relative to halls in other Universities, but one of the cheapest at Nottingham. Standard flats vary in size, facilities and quality, some are very small and so not worth the £99 a week charge. StudentCom WiFi disconnected regularly and I often resorted to a wired connection. Speeds excellent when internet worked. Social spaces not used, and very few regular events; end-of-term events excellent.

Probably much better if you get one of the more recently built blocks, but the oldest, un-refurbished block I was put in was truly tiny and exactly the same price. I was lucky my flatmates are lovely. We all share mutual hatred of the kitchen. The location is a plus though.

There is a big difference between the halls in the main part of Broadgate Park (much nicer) and the Upper/Lower courts (not as nice, no communal areas!).

'Broadgate Park: The Place To Be'. Well, no, not really. Albeit location is really good and the layout means that there is quite a good social aspect. Paying over £100 a week for a shared bathroom is very expensive but would be acceptable if the rooms were in good condition. Unless you're willing to fork out for an en suite you will be living in conditions similar to that of a prison, only without the security that a prison provides. Areas such as Lower Court and Upper Court (where a large proportion of standard rooms are) appear to have been completely neglected. Lower court isn't even surrounded by fencing so anyone can get in! One time we had a drunk 40 year old man wander into a flat full of terrified girls. Mould on windows, a very outdated feel to the whole place. Common room is basic. Only thing keeping me going was the good friends I made. If you're gonna be living standard, consider Rayleigh Park. If you're thinking en suite or above, Broadgate is probably your best bet..

Good first place but maintenance etc can be quite slow, good potential for facilities but quite a lot is broken, quite unfair giving of rooms (pay same price and some get much more space than others) Shop quite expensive, good laundry facilities and vey close to uni, good for lie-ins! Cleaning staff generally friendly and same with admin and maintenance, flexible with rent payment days if paying with student loan which i found good Starbucks within the halls which is always a bonus Good for a basis, but expensive for what you get

Very expensive accommodation in the middle of nowhere (about half an hour on the bus to the city centre), with very little communal space and minimal facilities provided. We pay for cleaning, but most of the time the cleaners just stand there doing nothing. Finally for a giant hall with more than 2000 residents, it is unacceptable to have only two communal areas for all the students!
