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.
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.
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
