Living at Leadmill Point has been one of the worst times of my life. The students are awful people who get away with being aggressive and threatening to others because Unite don’t want to lose money by kicking them out, and at the very least, the staff are lazy and just don’t care enough to handle situations with aggressors. As for the flats, they are disgusting. We have a silverfish infestation, theres a huge leak in the kitchen, the cupboard doors have fallen off and not been fixed after I have complained about it repeatedly, a friend of mine in another block could hear a mouse living in her bedroom wall, the bin deposits are open and so rats the size of small cats are living in there, and the shower head (the only decent part of our flat) was replaced by another more terrible shower head that water merely trickles out of. Last week a drunk stranger got into my flat because the front door didn’t lock properly and security got uptight with me for reporting it. Don’t live here.

Terrible halls, wouldnt recomend this to anyone. Bed was filthy when moving in so had to wait for a different one to be moved in. The shower is about as powerful as just standing outside in a light drizzle. Strage mould was growing in the sink when I moved in which when reported nothing was done about it. The oven in the kitchen switches off randomly in the middle of cooking which is a slight problem, two of the three knobs also fell off half way through the year and it took a week to replace them. Overall the worst experience and the worst place I have ever lived.

Extremely old rooms that are obviously full of small holes as we litteraly had an EXPLOSION OF MICE, the staff were completely unhelpful with, they were just trying to blame us, however there was no food and we always maintain everything clean. Please don't waste such an amount of money for such a rubbish place.

Appearance of the rooms are very mediocre, Ugly looking curtains, stained chairs in the living room and carpets which are impossible to clean. I have had a silverfish infestation throughout the year in my bathroom and bedroom!! The bathrooms get extremely damp which I presume is the reason for the silverfish in my bathroom but I have no idea how they are in my room! We have had to report the oven, kettle and toaster various times due to them stopping working which is a major inconvenience. The only main good thing about living here is the location and the wifi has always been efficent.

Aside from being very close to the Cantor and Owen buildings, this accomodation is rubbish. Over the year, there have been problems with mice in most flats, as well as security issues concerning non residents entering the accomodation. During the day both gates are left open, meaning anyone can walk right in - on top of this, the doors for the block AND flat in which I stayed had problems closing properly, and so you could walk straight from the street into our flat. The room and kitchen sizes are fairly mediocre considering the cost, and the ventilation in the ensuite bathrooms is virtually non-existent (resulting in pretty grim living conditions). The staff do nothing to prevent the deafeningly loud music playing at all hours, or the constant stench of weed that finds its way into your room. Every week or so Unite will provide some sort of free food at the reception, and you think 'hey it's not all bad', but actually it is. I would not recommend staying here.

Had a miserable time, horrid mouse infestation that the site team didn't try and help with. Only advantage is location.

Everything is great other than the Wifi. If there was decent wifi that lasted more than 10 seconds, it would be location no.1 4sure.

although it's in a prime location the laundry room is annoyingly on the other side of the gate so you have to walk through it at night to get there which is difficult when you have a huge bag of washing. the rooms are adequate and standard across all the uni halls although could do with some modernising especially the disgusting and very thin curtains. wardrobes are a decent size. bathrooms are ok. beds need renewing there was an indent in the mattress from who ever lived in this room the year before which was slightly weird. the social room is behind the laundry room and is always full of foreign exchange students. there's one s***ty pool table, one Fussball table and then a few stools around the room. also a tv which you can change the channel of by using the buttons on the tv. all in all not bad but try not to be too shocked at the difference from your parents home (: takes a while to get used to. Staff are really lovely as well.

It has been good living here, lovely staff, easy to socialise, but I think the common room could be bigger and better and the price could be reduced

Great accommodation, only problem is that on first moving in it wasn't the cleanest, however for the price I paid it's worth it. Cleaner every 2 weeks to clean kitchen and living area, helpful staff, one of the closest halls to city campus, would 100% live here again
