Very expensive for all you get. Would be cheaper elsewhere, many students struggle within these halls to keep on top of money because of how expensive it is. The flats include 6 en-suite rooms with a small shared kitchen and social area. If you think sitting in the kitchen area doing work and socialising with your flatmates is something you'd like to do, this isn't the place. One kitchen top and then a few uncomfortable seats makes it a difficult space to do both. Apart from this the building is nice, nice area only 10 min walk from the local asda or sainsbury's. 20 min walk away from local train station and buses come onto campus making getting around very easy.

Great part was being on campus and thats about it. Unless you have decent flatmates. If you don't good luck getting any help from hall management! Never solved any of the issues I had. Had the cheek to even try to charge me on issue I had been complaining about for months. As rent goes its expensive for the duration cheaper is available in the local area. City centre is of easy access now and has some decent new buildings but at a price

I loved living on campus. Having my own room with an en suite was such a treat for me. The social aspect is amazing, I met so many people from living on campus. My flat mates were a little unclean but that’s expected at uni!

Brecon court is well managed and full of life. Communal spaces are high quality and accommodate for all sorts of people. I’d highly recommend student village.

Nice but extortionate, very disappointing and frustrating that it costs more than Walscourt Park which is also on campus.

You can never get a moments quiet here. The hockey pitch is right next to the court and especially close to my room so there is constant cheering and chanting from the supporters and the noise the players make. It's made me hate a sport i once enjoyed. People are always playing music so unnecessarily loud it seems implausible you can call these rooms "study rooms" as its really hard to get any work done. It is also really expensive and i feel like i'm not getting the experience i'm paying for especially considering the rooms only have single beds. The only positive is that the maintenance team are very responsive.

What you’d expect from halls really. Cleaner not provided and housemates were messy. Common area was lacking as it felt more like a waiting room than a place to chill our.

It's quite expensive for what we get and for how long. Hall management is terrible I had a few complaints about the cleanliness of my flatmates. They said they'd act upon the photos I had sent. No action was taken. Unlike other halls on student village brecon does not get cleaning staff. Most social spaces are kinda small and not always open. The wifi we get with studentcom is terrible just like circuit laundry. The amount of times I had to walk to the other end of the village to dry my clothes is unmentionable. Sometimes to find out they don't work either

One of the best halls I've been in around the country, security can be a bit strict though

Decent accomodation, however our flat was flooded by the boiler from 4th floor. Not much help given, floor was soaked for a few days. WiFi cuts out almost all the time, but fast when connected.

Nice, new and modern student accommodation. Facilities are okay, location is great as right next to uni, however very far from city centre so expensive to go out.
