You will pay extremely high prices for extremely low quality housing. Seriously. Even for Oxford, the university accomodation is a rip off. Even during a pandemic, in which they have misled students into taking out contracts in their accomodation, they lack understanding when students try to leave. They do not enforce Covid rules, so if you live with people who are putting themselves at risk, you will be stuck paying rent just to catch the virus.
Perfect location! I can wake up 15 minues before my lecture and still make it on time. Socially it is ideal! Always pre drinks going on but if you decide to stay in on a noisy night after 11 speakers must be turned off and the warden is very effective at preventing excess noise after a certain time. Sports bar (main social hub of Brookes) is a 1 minuet walk and is always busy with reasonably priced drinks. expensive although you worth it
Always felt safe. Had your own en-suite which was great and I was lucky enough to be put in a really good flat with great people. Sometimes a bit rowdy but as a fresher there’s no place better to be- next to sports bar and sports hall / pitches and shortest walk to uni if all halls.
Very fun halls and very busy, as it is one of the most popular halls it’s not hard to make friends. The only downside is that you have to rent it for the whole year and it is expensive. I would reccommend this Hall’s though as it’s so close to uni and other amenities like the sports bar, gym and South Park.
terrible experience. if u like terrible managed halls with horrible organisers and pretty disrespectful students then come here :) the wifi is crap and slow, ure not even allowed friends over, u can even watch videos after 11pm. stupid rules treating uni students like children. the organisation decides to believe in fake forged 'evidence' to fine people. but when faced with bullying and harassment accusations, they do not do anything. when its not about money they dont care. stoopid ass.
I absolutely loved Cheney. I looked at these reviews before coming to Oxford Brookes and I was a bit apprehensive but it was nowhere near as bad as it was made out to be. The rooms are a good size and there is loads of storage space. The cleaner comes once a week which can be early in the morning but your kitchen is being cleaned for you so... put up with it! You will be fined if your kitchen it really unclean/ unsanitary or you have created any risk such as bin bags being left in the flat or are found with contraband items. I didn't want to be put in a large noisy accommodation but I am glad I did because you get to know so many new people and it is a great way of making friends. It is only noisy a few nights a week; usually specific days that students go out. Other than that, the noise level is kept to a minimum. Hope this helps!
They lied about the cost (it cost £1000 more than advertised). They lied about the size of the bed (mine was not single but one and a half - not a bad problem but meant I had to rebuy sheets etc) They also lied about postgrads being all put together and not with undergrads. All in all, management doesn't deserve even 1 star. However, overlooking these things, the layout of the apartment is not bad - rooms are protected from common area by 2 doors => when my housemates are banging out their tunes, I can't hear them much. The place is noisy - at all hours - sleep with windows closed and earplugs and you'll have no problem and it is brilliantly located - near campus and right next to the sports bar/gym/astroturf.
Central location for Oxford brookes students, however I personally hated the experience. The village is always noisy and full of drunk people screaming almost every other night, which may be fun for some but I disliked it. The rent is far too expensive for what you are receiving and the contract lasts until August 31st, which is 3 months after exams are over and I still have to pay for the accommodation. The general demographic of CSV are rude, arrogant and selfish, and I felt very much that I didn't fit in with my flatmates. Throughout the village there is always broken glass bottles from the previous night's parties, loud music is always playing from someone's window and there is always a smell of rubbish bins Overall, good if your a childish drunk who enjoys getting hammered every night and vomiting on the pavements... Bad if you are at university to actually get a degree! Would recommend somewhere more civilised like Wheatley campus or Slade Park.
Cheney, despite being very expensive, was fantastic. The halls were clean and tidy, very central to the university’s main campus, by the sports facilities, easy access to the town centre and Cowley road, and really nice bedrooms for a university hall! The only negative was the long contract which ended up being very expensive, however you are given the opportunity to sublet your room over the summer.
Cheney student village is an excellent student hall for location convenience - adjacent the sports centre and bar, and only a five minute walk from main campus and bus stops, this is fantastic! Although, it is expensive, and has a particularly posh demographic living in its dormitories.
Not bad. The cleaners are good and friendly and come and clean the kitchen every Monday morning. Your letters come through the door, your parcels go to the parcel room, and your signed for parcels go to reception. My room is functional but overlooked. I had to buy a net curtain. It can be noisy at times with parties in other flats and the sports bar right next door. There are no draws for things like your socks so bring something to store them in. I wish the windows opened more. The laundry is expensive but it's managed by an external company (washstation). There are no problems with damp or bugs in this hall! The starrez system brookes accommodation uses is really buggy but that isn't the hall's fault. It's nice that bills are included but I would not pay any more than what I am currently paying for it (£137p/w) and am moving into cheaper halls next year (£126) because having that extra £11 per week makes a big difference!!
Very close to the Headington campus. If you don't mind hearing your flatmates, the people above and the ones from across the courtyard, then proceed. My block smelled of rugby shoes, one could feel it as soon as you'd go in the block. The kitchen was mostly a battlefield for various kinds of germs, but that's due to lack of education from flatmates. The wifi was close to nonexistent, but broadband was great. Great view to the park. Management prompt. Not many laundry facilities.
