This is my second year living at Challenge Works and i cant imagine living anywhere else! It takes me 2 minutes to walk to uni which is great. I'm in a double studio which is the perfect size for me, very spacious compared to my first year in basic halls. Would highly recommend :)

This is my first year living at the new challenge works and I love it. I’m definitely going to be staying there for the rest of my course. Very modern and homely x

Nice place in terms of room size, facilities and location. Internet is hit and miss. Not properly clean when moving in, broken furniture and disgusting drains, had to have a full clean when we arrived. The walls are also only half painted properly? For the price it isn’t all it cuts out to be. Post is also insecure and had multiple instances of post stealing.

Me and my partner have lived at Challenge for 2 years now and have just had our application for a 3rd year accepted. We have always been in one of the larger rooms which is great for us and the city campus is a 2 minute walk away which is an added bonus. We have really enjoyed staying here.

The internet is slow and get loads of pop ups. It is very loud you can hear parties across the street due to single paned glass. It was very dirty when we moved in, we got black feet from the carpet being so dirty, and have not once seen a cleaner in the utilities room or corridors and the washing machine has hair in it. The shower is tiny I always hit my elbows when I'm washing my hair and always builds up dirt around the drain because the water doesn't drain, I have to push the water down the drain. Drains regularly smell like egg when you run the tap. The only good thing is the location as it close to city campus and the city centre.

Slow unsecure Internet, no regular cleaning at the premises, unhygenic washing machines, rats in walls, quite noisy as you can hear your neighbours talking, I'm still living with the spiders that lived in my studio before I moved in, too expensive for what it offers. Location is the only good thing...
