Did not stay at student halls they are useless
Too many construction issues, cooking equipment doesn’t work, leaks in bathrooms and invested with bugs
Rude and uneducated staff (the only staff that's nice are part time students and don't even get me started with the builders) They enter your room without any notice (even if you're not here) make a mess and then leave. They might be checking some stuff but they need to learn some manners. They also forced me to open my door in the middle of an exam. Insisted to be able to come back in 20 minutes when my exam lasted 4 hours (and I see them every day in the complex they could have come back the next day). There is a VERY noisy machine(>70decibels) hidden in a cupboard on top of the fridge in every apartment : a cleaning air system. We have to use it if not the quality of air is VERY bad. Just so you know this kind of device must be earthed if not it's dangerous (and illegal) (it's written on the machine itself and then I did my research) And yes those devices are on ground floor, and upstairs floors 1/2/3/4. (And the complex is new so imagine in a year or two 🤡: nightmare)
The rent is a little more expensive than other places in oxford but includes use of the gym (saves me £25/month!!), social and study spaces and use of their bikes which is great as I couldnt get my bike to oxford :)) Very close to my school and makes it super easy to get to london as the train station is only a quick walk. Very helpful and friendly staff - definitely settled my worries moving in, already booked again for next year!!
Love my home. We experienced construction noise in the beginning but this is to be expected due to Covid delays, no noise now. I’m really enjoying my stay here at Student Castle, the building is like a 5* hotel and the service is amazing. Grace who works at reception always brightens my day :) 24 hour concierge, gym and study spaces. Communal spaces and gym cleaned hourly. Feel fortunate to be staying in this beautiful building so close to my school.
horrific experience, construction work is so loud, poor covid management and no enforcement of mask wearing, etc
moved in and room not finished, room still not done after 3 months, poor organisation and no communication, so many faults and so expensive!
Only major issue is that you can't actually do anything in your room while here, because of construction. Avoid.
Move in only if you like construction noise. Things are mostly fine, except the construction work - no notice whatsoever you can't do anything in your room from 9am-5pm every weekday, 40 days into moving in, clear breach of license agreement.
