The halls are very far away from everything and you have to catch a bus to get anywhere. Normally not a problem since they run every 20 minutes but during holidays and weekends the bus service is terrible. The only social area in the halls is the kitchen which is quite small. The meals you get with the accomadation are good but not avalible during holidays and very bad on weekends. This wouldnt be a problem but they dont provide adequate cooking facilities making it very difficult to make anything other then ready meals. Only good thing about these halls were the people i was living with.
Maintenance is terrible, always have cold showers, hole in the kitchen ceiling that leaks, cupboard doors falling off, out dated kitchen, bus is always too full to get on around 4pm, cant control own heating, no cleaners. Love the uni but this accommodation is terrible, go to one in the actual city! Far too expensive for what you get.
The only downfall in this halls was the cleaning staff, one day we walked in and they were sat around our kitchen table having their lunch! And they always seemed to be walking around campus but didn't actually do any cleaning... Not that we expected to have cleaners but since we had them we would appreciate if they did their job!
Had an amazing time in Langstone. Close knit community within the west block halls and safe and secure. Bit far out so have to catch the bus, but it runs every 20 minutes and is free and takes hardly any time. Need to catch taxi home after a night out too. Nice amenities, warm room and a lovely communal area brilliant for socialising and pre drinks. Kitchen is good too. Post sometimes took a while to come through reception but besides that a brilliant experience for my first year.
