Disclaimer: If not for the incidents of this year I would rate 5/5 on for the two years I have lived in these halls however for transparency I feel it's only fair to inform prospective tenants of my experience. At the beginning of this academic year, just one week before we were due to move in, we received an email saying that during the year refurb of all flats would be taking place. This would mean at any time we would be asked to move out all of our things into a different room - lets not downplay the enormity of that task. On top of this, evidently, there would be construction noise throughout the year. I don't know if I'm being sensitive but it seems a bit deceptive to only inform student once their contract is in place and money has been taken. Update - this did not happen in the end due to one of the flats in the halls giving out static shock through the en suite taps/water for over a month. My guess is the refurb is for next year now but funnily enough they don't know yet.
As a second year this was my 2nd year in halls and I wouldn't be fooled by the location of this halls. The location is perfect being minutes from everything. However, it is much in need of referb the bathroom is tiny with just about enough space, rooms are decently sized yet do not compare with that of unite students. The kitchen is the best part of the flat however even this is small in comparison to other halls. To make the halls experience even better we were constantly surrounded by the sound of workmen and disruption to our lives with drills and other work happening almost every day. On moving in i was also surprised to find my room not up to my own standards of cleanliness resulting in me cleaning the whole of my new flat before using anything. The staff were nice and approachable which made the experience slightly better.
Decent for the price, however the location and thin walls means you can hear everyone going to/coming from a night out (they love to shout.) Maintainance let themselves in whenever they want and will take as long as they like when you need something fixed (It took 2 weeks to fix my extractor fan) They were carrying out construction throughout the year so there was plenty of loud noise throughout the day and this also left the stairwells filthy. Common room is very good, plenty of things to do. Social experience is perfect if you like to go out a lot, you save a lot of money as you don’t need to pay for a taxi. The internet is very good if you connect with an Ethernet cable, however if you connect over WiFi you’ll often have random cut outs and extremely slow speeds throughout the day/night which is insanely annoying. Overall I’d give it 2 stars.
Seasoned parent and know good accomodation when I see it. The rooms are good but what makes these flats are the HUGE lounge kitchen diner . A fab social space. It's in a great location no need for taxis home after a night out.
Location is f*cking mint - up the road from corp, down the road from west street. Two minutes away from Subway, Taco Bell, KFC, Dominoes, etc. 10/15 minutes away from both campuses and train station. Kitchens and rooms are rather big and clean, en-suites are great. New common room with xbox one and PS4, snooker table, etc. Been a great first year here.
If you get landed with good flat mates; Garuntee this will be the best year of your life. If you get landed with a bad flat mate, like me.. it's hell. If you're a light sleeper you won't get any sleep... The walls are paper thin, and if you have respectful flat mates then it's a great halls to live in, however I was placed next to a person who stays up until 3am every morning in his room making lots of noise. The halls has terrible staff in my opinion, they are inconsistent with solutions to problems and would refuse to relocate me in another flat that was free and would not sort out the issue with my loud flat mate. He internet is temprinental and not very good wirelessley but is good wired. Would never stay here again, as it's a good place to party but not to live, especially once getting to your exams and coursework deadlines.
Great location in terms of area, rooms are nice and the flat itself is modern and great, the downside this is not the place to come if you aren't the best at sleeping not donut enjoy noise, it's constantly loud from 7pm and through till 3am, you can hear every footstep above you and every door being slammed throughout the block, not to mention the walls are dead thin. I can literally hear conversations my flat mate is having which I think it's terrible. Also a lot of noise from people after a night out. Overall it's great but the noise has annoyed me to the point of wanting to leave.
A great place to be if you're really into partying as the location is fab. However it is extremely loud and the walls aren't very thick so if you're wanting quiet nights I would probably go else where. Overall it is a lovely place though and would recommend.
Lovely, modern flat. Living in a mixed flat where there's 2 girls and 2 boys. There's 8 flats in our block that we mostly talk to, great distance to Corp (on the doorstep) and west street/Carver street (literally two minutes walk) no need for public transport anywhere..such a good location. Security arent as strict as I thought but yet they're there if you need them. Had problems with my room and all was fixed the same day!
The value is great with en suits from only £95, security is good but not too strict and there are always flat parties however not too late on. It is a perfect distance from everything, Never have to walk more than 15 minutes to get anywhere.
It was very easy to make friends here in freshers as there was always a party going on somewhere. But just be aware that if you're too loud security will ask you to keep it down but they're usually fine if you're respectful and don't kick off with them. We've had many parties and just been told to keep the music down but never had any problems or been kicked out. Just don't have music too loud after like 12. The location is brilliant, one of the best for hallam. Close to all the nightlife. Like a minute to walk to corp, 5 mins to carver street and less than 10 minutes to plug/code. It takes less than 10 minutes to walk to uni at city campus and the train station. The halls are really nice compared to some of the ones my friends are staying in and they're paying more money! Also the caretakers really good at coming to fix anything that's broken or not working and it's usually done very quickly! Had the best first year living here!
