We are not in central halls, the name of our actual landlord could not be found. We are with Room Guru. David, the landlord, is relatively new to providing student accommodation. He is a lovely landlord and has solved the very few problems we have had very quickly. Fantastic value for money. Although we are a 15 minute walk from uni, he does have houses which are closer. We are in a private house which has been newly renevated throughout, as with all of his properties, to a very high standard.
One of the worst halls on campus, no atmosphere and the rooms feel like you’re in a prison cell. Especially on the ground floor as there are bars on the windows. The walk into uni everyday is also a massive inconvenience. There are free buses but often in the morning they are so busy that you aren’t a guranteed to get a space on the bus. Try and go for a hall on the main campus if possible, it would be a much better experience.
Terrible location unless you are studying on Jubilee Campus. Very little social atmosphere due to lack of decent freshers week, any encouragement of social space usage and poor hall design. Very difficult to feel a "community" develop due to very long corridors that are daunting. Rooms very small, can be made to "feel" bigger by moving the bed round but that makes me question why it's not done anyway. Wet rooms are so rubbish it's unbelievable, and lack of space to dry my towels mean getting out of it is pretty rubbish too. Very dark rooms.
