The hall management is very bad. The hall itself totally overpriced, the University should be ashamed for offering and advertising this place as a mature place, where you pay the highest fees compared to all others places. Definitely not recommendable, waste of money!

DO NOT CHOOSE TRAFALGAR!! We've had our water turned off at least 8 times this year because the pipes haven't been maintained, and the main corridor on my floor flooded too. In early January they moved us out into hotels to have a couple of days to fix the drains... and they weren't fixed when we got back! A matter of days later the water was off again. No compensation, nothing. I had to spend my own money on drinking water because the reception was shut so I couldn't get any water. There is hardly anyone at reception, they're lovely people but they're not often there. That's really frustrating when you have a problem but you have to call the emergency number rather than talk to someone at reception. The lifts are often broken, thankfully I'm on a lower floor, and that's a nightmare for those living on the upper floors. Be prepared for the fire alarms to go off a lot. During the first semester the fire alarm system broke which lead to four hours of fire alarm testing!

It is in a great location for reaching the university. However, compared to other Unite properties, Trafalgar Hall is cheap, but it also seems to be more basic and in need of attention. The walls are so thin you can hear everything from neighbouring rooms/flats which has led to many sleepless nights. Other than communal kitchens in the cluster flats, there are no other social spaces. Individual members of staff are lovely, but when you try to deal with UNITE as a company you often hit a brick wall as it seems to take them forever to do anything and you seem to spend all your time chasing them.

Why is this #1? I have honestly no idea - too bad I didn’t question that when I based this site on my choice for this year, so far it’s been nothing less than awful- first I started in a £139 a week studio flat at the top of Trafalgar which was probably one of the worst experiences of my life and Iater changed to shared (between 6 others! £119 a week , still very expensive - luckily I had a good group of people relatively speaking but Trafalgar has constant problems over the academic year the water has been turned off nearly 10 times sometimes for days at a time (and we had to be put up in a hotel) and several things such as toilets not working and electrical failures have been common, the bathroom in my room has a very strange smell and there is literally no drain for the shower it’s a hole in the floor I could probably almost drop my phone down and Trafalgar is the only hall where there’s no common room either and unlike some of the halls there is nobody at the desk in the night

Not the best place for first year if you want to socialise amongst peers you live with, no common room. Basic but great location, uni bus stop right outside the block. The flat now..... the rooms were fine, just that the drain in the bathroom makes this annoying sound everyso often that you’d have to shut the bathroom door while sleeping. The kitchen however, when I moved in things were broken already. One sink the hot tap doesn’t work, the next sink hot tap is scorching hot. I live in a flat made for 6 people yet there are four draws and the rest are fake??? The cupboards under the sink are gross the backing wall has fell off. For the first teaching block there was plenty times the water had to be taking off to fix drains which is understandable but when it happens over and over again it’s irritating especially when it’s in the mtoning time, you can’t shower or flush the toilet.

nice rooms, also you get things like laundry and printing in the same building. fast internet, building is close to campus. staff are pretty nice. mostly people chill in lower flats as there is no social area/common room. also the walls are super thin so be prepared to hear _everything_ haha

Was that bad at all. The lifts however constantly broke down which was ridiculous. Communication from management was none existent until I and others complained, especially as a disabled students was stranded on the top floor. Overall it was a nice place to live but with some major issues.
