The agency in charge rarely actually repair or deal with any issues, unless it effects the building and thus their bottom line, i've got paint peeling from the ceiling onto my stuff and my bed which they were aware of and refuse to fix, furthermore i've got more issues than can be counted but here is a few - unable to access bins due to builders blocking them off, agency simply said oh ask them to move their stuff, frankly i work and don't have time to deal with that given I pay £130 a week which is almost as much as other better places. - heater hasn't worked all year they were informed and haven't dealt with it - sink in bathroom has not worked properly since the start, it neither works with the plug it or out it drains extremely slowly even when I myself unclogged the pipes after getting tired of their 2 - the area is full of drunks and drug users harrassing people entering the building avoid at all costs 3 - one washer and 3 small bins to share which are always full

Student Review: 1 /5
By CM25 On 10th August 20

In terms of what you should be getting the cost wasn't too bad at £115 pounds for a studio. However, it's nice to have a room where the light wasn't out for 3 weeks. In terms of my specific room, there's a fairly sizable hole in the wall that was there since I moved in. The thin walls mean that if you are to have someone spending all night in the social room that's all you'll be able to hear if drug users and drunks aren't screaming and harassing people outside all night. The location itself isn't an ugly area now that it is done up but again because of the year long work and the lack of soundproofing it became hard to sleep especially on the ground floor due to the drills and the streetlight that was connected to a generator. Peeling paint was left behind the cupboard when I arrived and the management apart from a few members of staff are mostly useless.
