i'm English, was put straight into a flat full of Chinese? Logic (i booked in something like march..). Didn't speak a word to any of them all year. rooms are small and get smelly as little air flow (can only open windows a small jar). fire alarms constantly waking you at silly hours, sometimes have to go down outside for a fire count. shower curtains are rubbish and mingy. one freezer per flat of 6.. joke right? WiFi is painfully slow and always cutting out!! imagine having a deadline.. Terrible for the money, £97!! i used liberty village 1st year and that place is hard to beat. Also i did feel spoken down to ALOT at my time in IQ. 1/10000 Don't make the mistake i did!
Worst experience of my life, couldn't wait to leave. The security door broke for weeks, never got fixed in the end, strangers can literally just walk into your flat. Security guards couldn't care less about safety, can't even speak English either.
Rooms are a semi decent size, the showers are something to be desired and having the power outlets along one wall is a stupid design choice. The beds or should i say mattresses feel like they may well just be made of stone. The only redeeming quality IQ has is a stable and strong internet connection.
Staff always putting little activities on and planning social events, only Hall with a social hub with sky and a pool table, never had to go to post office reception collected parcels, good ensuites only down side was the lack of fridge/freezer space
Well IQ Preston is a fun place to live in first year. It's well positioned especially if you are a sports student. IQ staff are all well and good untill something goes wrong, then they dodge all responsibility, they avoid helping you and tbh make things worse! The security staff are a bit rubbish too
Pretty poor place to live, but it is what you make of it the also counts! The staff are quite rude and always seem to have something to winge about but they also managed to put me in with the most cracking group of people I have ever met so for that I thank you IQ Kopa!
Everything is good. Love dave he is amazing. Flat is always messy there should be some kind of cleaning check where students are forced into cleaning as its unfair on others that don't want to live in such conditions.
over prices, emails come across very pretentious like we are privileged to be living there. Flat was unclean when I entered it and I may have to pay charges if I don't clean my room properly, decoration is bland and depressing. 6 people sharing one small freeze? Good one! Our fridge has broken 4 times and every time it's been fixed it's been broken again within a day of using it. DO NOT stay there. Stay at Lawson Halls!
Not worth the money when other private halls offer more for the money. The rooms are ok, painted averagely in magnolia, good desk space and chair is nice. You'll need a mattress topper that's quite thick as the mattresses are horribly uncomfortable. There is no plug sockets anywhere near the bed so if you want to charge your phone and go on it in bed I suggest buying a three metre or more extension lead with you! The kitchen is ok, oven seems a bit old with a crappy grill but it works fine. Good thing is it's good for socialising but the noise is bad on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Security are very good onsite and the women at reception are helpful and polite. The biggest selling point for these halls is Dave the maintenance man! He is always available to help you fix anything whatsoever. He'll stop and chat to you whenever and genuinely take good care of you if you need him! Overall, I have enjoyed the stay here but am glad to be going soon!
IQ is a pleasant place to live . It is close to the university campus , 24 hour access to the washing machines and dryers. There is on sight recycling and the office staff are there to help . However IQ comes with expensive financial consequences for the slightest of mishaps.
