Most helpful review

As Albion is separate from broadgate park we have much more space - our kitchens are much bigger than at main bgp. We also get free parking YAY. However it is really far from uni and most of the things available to bgp aren't to us, including the common room and no buses even go back to Albion during freshers week. There is no social space in Albion other than in your kitchens, which are really uncomfortable. We are however right opposite sainsiburys and round the corner from lidl which is convenient.

The kitchens are much bigger at Albion House than Broadgate Park. It is also in the centre of Beeston which is a nice little town with lots of shops.

I was excited to move into halls, however the advertising for these halls does not give all of the information. I am a 35 minute walk from where I am situated in the university. Meaning that I sometimes have to get a bus. this is expensive for a student but for me to get everything done that I need to in a day, I have no choice but to get the bus. There is no social space (other than broadgate, which is a 10 minute walk from our halls) so as someone who struggles to make friends this didn't help. It also means that there are no sofas in these halls at all, nowhere to sit and relax. Instead we have to sit in bed or on stools at the table.

The management is not good. There are bugs in the lights (the place needs to be fumigated well); Porters although helpful, show up after 4pm, so there's not really any helpful 'receptionist' before that; no social space so minimal contact with others which contributes to more loneliness; kitchens are big though with plenty of equipment; the closeness to Beeston shopping centres is appreciated, but the long walk to Uni park is not. So, management if you're reading this: please add a social space like a JCR; and get the place fumigated!
