I cannot exaggerate enough how badly you should not stay here. I am a fresher and I am living in a studio. Since coming to uni and staying here, I have become isolated and introverted as there is absolutely no socialising here and I know nobody in the building. I have had problems with the heating, in which they provided a portable radiator that I have used throughout the start of the year and are still using. They have failed to fix my television signal. They never renovated the gym (which I believe they no longer advertise having) so I had to start paying for a membership externally even though it was a deciding factor of living here. The mould in my bathroom has gotten worse, they sealed my skirting board up which were black and falling off, only to cover up the mould. The floorboards have sunken underneath my floor indicating they are rotting away and there are dark patches on my floor and ceiling. Front door was without a lock for ages too! WOULD NOT RECOMMEND TO ANYONE!!!!!!!!!
Don’t come this accomodation as a fresher if you don’t want to be depressed. Studio living is isolating. There is NOT 24/7 security as highlighted on all the adverts - infact on a few separate occasions homeless would break in and sleep in the laundry room. Black mold grows throughout all the bathrooms due to inadequate extraction in the bathrooms, something which was never fixed throughout my stay regardless of the fact many people complained. Maintenance staff were clearly rushed off their feet and understaffed. Bathroom door handles were used to replace corridor door handles. People I lived with even had to get parcels delivered to friends accomodation as it was not safe to get parcels delivered here. The was a receptionist on the desk for approximately 30 mins very early in the morning and it was clear she was split between all the fortis student accomodation in Nottingham. They have even further increased the prices for the next year. Please do not stay here as a fresher.
