The location is good and there are lots of shops in this area. Building isn't great from the outside and the 1st and 2nd floor are really nice and have been done up. The internet isn't great but it works I think a lot of people have on line games which isn't great. Friendly staff. We have communal areas cleaned every week. May stay here next year but not sure yet.

Just finishing my first year here and have applied to come back. The location is good and the building secure. Had a few issues with people living here but these were dealt with.

I did have a few problems at kings chambers, but that was down to the people I was living with rather than the accommodation itself - so could have happened anywhere. Kings chambers is one of the only student accommodation that provides flats shared with 15 people rather than just 3/4 others so there is always something going on, people around to talk to and it's guaranteed that you will definitely find others that you like. It is the perfect place for freshers to live. Yes, it can get noisy and messy, but it's a great place to live socially and it's student accommodation, so what do you expect? If you enjoy gaming then the wifi will be a problem. A lot of people complained about it, but it was completely fine for me to do my university assignments. It is in a perfect location, only a 5 minute walk from the city campus, city centre, and the tram stop which goes to Meadowhall across the road. I only lost £70 of my deposit, which was completely reasonable due to the reasons.

Brilliant location and really had a pleasant stay at these halls and I am coming back this year! A few minor issues but overall I enjoyed my stay!

Again, avoid this accommodation at all costs. Experienced multiple problems over the year with appliances, had building work right outside the window for over a month and charges to the deposit seem as if they are attempting to profit as much as they can from you. Wifi was dreadful, and should you have problems at the accommodation, you probably won't get it addressed for a long time, or in certain cases, throughout your whole tenancy.

Landlord took money off deposit and never said why, kept coming in the kitchen for 'flat meetings', held inspections which no-one knew about then docked money from deposit for flat not being clean. Also had builiding work at exam season

Good location, but apart from that, avoid it at all cost
