Negatives: small beds. So if you’re 6ft+ like me and live in the old blocks, enjoy a small single bed all year with your toes sticking out The fire alarm test is soo random (they say every Wednesday) and very annoying as they do it whenever they want Not lots of halls events probably only like 2 or 3 during 1st year Cleaners are decent but sometimes they’re useless (depending on the cleaner) Generally most people here are very cool and relaxed, unless you’re unlucky enough to get a snobby flatmate like mine who used to file noise complaints if I was cooking too loud in the kitchen and made any noise PAst 10pm. Positives: friendly staff except maybe 1 or 2 workers. Good atmosphere during weekends (pres everywhere) . Security aren’t always lurking, only utilised when called. Maintenance is pretty good and on point. WiFi is a bit iffy sometimes but 10/10 if connected to a free Ethernet they give at the start of the year.
I feel like my time has been perfectly good. The study room is an especially thoughtful touch and I have used it many a time. The pol table in reception is superb. My room and kitchen are lovely, although the cleaning service is not. The people I met at SPC made my first year at uni the best of my life.
With a free bus to the university, free gym, and wonderful staff, what more could you ask for? All the staff knew us by name, and being a bigger hall that's quite a task. I would always recommend SPC to new Nottingham students
Old block rooms have not been modernised and appear as if they have undergone no work in 20 years. Upon arrival in September many of the bathrooms had not been cleaned whatsoever from the previous year, all had mould problems and more disturbingly ant infestations which have not been addressed over the course of the year. Even worse many of the rooms have electrical problems (lights randomly turning on/off, short circuits etc.). "Cleaning" is a joke and the cleaners don't actually do anything. WiFi is incredibly poor and regularly shuts out. Location very poor: 45 mins walk from from campus, buses infrequent & unreliable. In an industrial estate, in a crime hotspot area which is unsafe to walk around at night. No social integration, dont go here if you actually want to make friends outside your flat/enjoy extracurricular activities. Promotional materials/images highly unrepresentative. I would warn all to avoid booking here... truly a waste of money.
Nice rooms and staff but far from uni and direct buses only every hour, and sometimes too busy to allow everyone on. Very unsociable halls and terrible integration with other flats/uni related events. Social space not used often. Would not recommend if you actually want to meet people other than your flatmates. Deferring entry to move halls as they were so unsociable.

Location was definitely my main concern before moving here, although it is much more convenient than expected. The buses are on time and reliable, and it's really only a 10 minute walk to Jubilee Campus. Unlike catered halls, you have much more freedom without feeling as though you are on your own. Staff are all really friendly and helpful. Great, sociable hall with some really amazing friends being made. Would definitely recommend!
Probably the worst hall you could possibly stay in at nottingham university, there is literally no reason to live here. If you're at jubilee, all the jubilee halls are better (even raleigh park is) and if you're at uni park please don't go to SPC as it's a ball ache making that long commute every day (especially when the s**** bus service is late during exam times.) If you want self-catered, broadgate is infinitely better.
So far it's been very comfortable living at SPC as it gradually feels more and more like a second home to me. The standard ensuite rooms are a very spacious. The staff are generally friendly and the cleaners do a fairly good job. Though it may be a bit far from uni, there's a FREE Unite bus which travels from SPC to Uni park and City Centre but it would have been nice if it ran on the weekends. One complaint I have is that the wifi can be a bit on and off sometimes although for the most part it's okay. Another is that I found that the kitchen/living rooms were a bit disproportionate as ours which is meant for 7 people was smaller than other ones that were for 6 which I thought was a bit unfair.
SPC was a great place to live - 5-10 minute bus ride into town and 15 minute ride to university. I liked living away from the university - the campus is beautiful but if I lived there I would feel like I was never leaving the place where I study. I like the separation of work and home. The staff have always been very helpful and quick to fix anything we've needed - like when the hob broke in the kitchen or to change lights etc. It's a good place to be
