Most helpful review

Living in Halls was actually the best part of my time at UWS - and even that was crap! No parking for students at all - I was told to use pay and display everyday! Staff are nice, but can have an attitude and you just think, "hold on, who is paying their wage again?" A room is advertised at £106 a week, but in reality you end up paying £570 a month. Internet access is slow and that's only when the wifi network isn't constantly dropping making it impossible to do anything useful online. The union isn't great and has shut down a few times because they can't afford to run it - ridiculous. Outwit my review of halls, I really wouldn't recommend this 'university' as a great deal of staff members are totally incompetent.

Student Review: 2 /5
By On 4th March 18

Disappointed. Expensive. The whole winter, my heater was broken and it was never fixed. The staff is rude and is acting unprofessionally. Bad management. No housekeeper. When we asked why isn't there anyone to vacuum the hallway and the kitchen once a week, we were told that we had to pay for it. We also payed for the laundry. The price is really high compared to what it is provided. However, the rooms look nice and the location is just perfect.

Bad management. Complaints were not taken seriously. The rooms are cold, always something that is not working. (In most cases; heaters, elevators...) Continuing flat checkups, still nothing is fixed.

Overpriced in comparison to the area. Can share a home with other students for half the cost of a week.

Too expensive, WiFi s***. Having to pay for washing? Please! Cleaners don't clean! Hoovers don't work. Lifts need sanitising! Students can't Park anywhere!

cleaners very unwilling to clean. All they had to do was clean the hob and hoover the hallway in the flat. Quite often they would just not clean the hob and refuse to hoover the hallway if there was a pair of trainers sitting in it. £570 a month is absolute extortion considering they don't even clean the flats. The chairs in the lounge are the most uncomfortable thing I've ever experienced. No parking for students even though there's a car park, unfortunately this is reserved for university staff.

Wouldn't recommend at all. Find a flat in town and save money. Was so unhappy there.
