DMA is a lovely place to stay, however, when we arrived, we discovered that our kitchen had no proper ovens - instead, we had table top ovens of which one didn't work. On a side note, after realising that one of these 'ovens' did not function properly, nor the microwave, they were promptly replaced with new ones by the site management. Overall, the rooms and bathrooms are a nice size, storage and shelfing is plentiful, the common room is a tad on the small side (but then we are in the smallest halls) and the kitchens need a bit of work. It has been a good experience overall so far.

I was in David Moxon Annexe for my first year of Uni. The rooms are great the location is also great. The downside was that the cleaners pretty much did nothing and you would be lucky to ever get your post because the hatch (where you collect your post) which was meant to be open for most of the day was pretty much never open!

Really nice halls - I lived in DMA and it was a close-knit family feel. Everyone was friendly and you got to know all of your neighbours. Bonus? You could roll out of bed at 8.50 and still make it to your 9am class on time!

room size is good, en-suite bathrooms are small and not very nice. some kitchens are good, some of them aren't as up to date. In Kimber there is only one common room, which is ok, but no one uses. laundry room is small and busy. cleaners are good but grumpy, management is varied, some staff are nice whereas others are quite horrible.

Great Halls, close to town and uni. Be careful of crime, and the park at night.

I had my best time there! Not too big, not too small, you get to know other students very well.

Good location for uni but traffic noise is so loud, kitchens are so tiny so struggle for social area other than the common room

Great experience, 5 minute walk to uni and nice rooms. Although can't change the temperature of the showers so mine was boiling hot even after making numerous complaints and them "fixing it" 3 times.

Not seen the residence manager at all since moving in, cleaning is good. Nice halls to live in.

Good halls, Azeem the residence manager is a good laugh but gets things done when they need to be. Only downside here is the cleaners are noisy and rarely clean the kitchen as its 'not clean enough to be cleaned'

I hate this place with a passion. Red kitchen didnt even have a real oven or table OR chairs. Was absolutely terrible and in comparison to my friends at universities such as Loughborough, Bath, UEA, etc. They paid less and seemingly got a greater living space. So again, Solent ripped us all off and made it harder to survive the year financially.

Everyone is really friendly. There is a good sense of community and all of the staff are kind and helpful.
