Long story short: the last place to live. More than 3 months of fireproof reinforcement with all those chainsaw sound, drilling sound and hammer sound every workday from 9 to 4. Surely they must have cut corners when building this accommodation, otherwise they wouldn't need to reinforce fireproof after all these years. The construction team did not stop there. After they cut down the celling of common areas like hallway, they entered my room and worked for about 2 to 3 days, cut celling down and made everything dusty. Not only that, I was forced to pack my things to make ways for them. Also, I have no choice and forced to leave my room and stay somewhere else for these days. Who knows what else will be worked over. The WIFI is absolute trash, disconnect every few minutes. Recent days the hot water is down. One of the elevator was down for 2 months. As said at the beginning: the last place to live.
The staff at the reception are really lovely and helpful. Location is amazing, only 5 minutes from most university buildings!
Best team to support you 24 hours every day
Staff have been extremely kind, helpful and cooperative whenever I needed something. I am very satisfied with my room and everything works great. Maybe they could clean the common areas more often.
I have had an amazing amount of issues with this accommodation. Firstly when i moved (end of July) the accommodation was not cleaned from the last academic year. I understand that i moved sooner than the September date that everyone comes but they knew that I will be moving and still did nothing to clean. The fridge was filled with mould and the oven was in a horrific state. My room at first glance was okay but then i found some issues and listed them on a form as they requested. Now is four months later and nothing has been fixed. A friend recommended this place but there is no way that I can recommend it to anyone. The wifi is really unreliable and i have heard this issue from other tenants. Sometimes it keeps disconnecting and at certain times of the day it is really slow and even at is best never 100mbs as they advertise. The washing machines (Circuit) are the worst that anyone can use. Washing is okay, driers need to be used twice most of the time. Also really expensive.
The management and security team were simply amazing. Despite the fact that I had some issues in my flat (roof leaks), they were always available to solve them as soon as it was possible. I recommend Cornerhouse based not only on its location but especially on its people!
Good space, if you are on campus. Number to call if you have an issue which are normally resolved quite quickly.
