Very nice and green halls very close to uni. A bit far away from shops and pubs but very nice in the summer with good rooms. 90% of my good coursemates are from glen due to the social aspect of 2000 students walking the same route to uni and back. Free bus pass is a bonus when you can't be arsed to walk the 5 minutes back.

Really good room size in Old Terrace but not enough ovens in the kitchen, only one for ten people! We cope but it can be quite a stress! Really good atmosphere though and easy walk to uni and bus links

The problem with Glen Eyre accommodation is the fact that some blocks are significantly more modern than others, and you end up paying the same price for older accommodation if you're unlucky. I'm staying in Glen Eyre New Terrace ensuite. The bathroom is more of a washroom than a bathroom, it's all one level including the shower which causes leakages and the bathroom floor is constantly wet. There is a smell of damp which lingers across the accommodation. The heating is unpredictable, sometimes it's really hot and other times it doesn't work. Same with the shower, hard to adjust the temperature. The kitchen is a outdated, the ovens again are unpredictable and there aren't enough cupboards for all the flat mates. The corridor is again outdated, and there aren't many communal areas so flatmates are normally confined to their room. The cleaners are consistent though and friendly and internet is offered although it is extremely slow and keeps crashing. Overall disappointed.

I met my best friends in halls... Not in my actual flat, but Glen Eyre is so big that I found people I really connect with at the halls' bar on the first day, and 2 years later I'm still super close with the... I know I'm in the minority there but honestly, the sheer size of Glen Eyre means that you're bound to find people you love :)

not much in the way of communal hang out space in Glen. And no one goes to Glen bar. But the actual accommodation (Richard Newitt at least) was lovely!

Part of south hill which is considered part of Glen and I think my halls are great! We socialise with various blocks and all come together in the common room which is great for watching rugby or football or useful for birthdays and pre drinks! Cleaners in the kitchen 5 days a week who do a great job and a 10 minute walk from campus or a short bus ride away from all the nightlife! Rather sad to be leaving for private rented in the summer as love it here!
