Student Review: 2.7 /5

Clarice Cliff Court only meets the minimum requirement for an en suite pass. It has individual bathrooms for its students in their own rooms but honestly all rooms feel like a hard white concrete prison cell. The location is much further from the main campus but not too far, it is somewhat inconvenient to walk so far to go to a shop or get lunch.

At Clarice Cliff Court there is dated housing with tiny rooms which half is taken up by the bath-without-a-bath-room. Paper thin walls which means I barely ever got any sleep. Mould on bottom floor due to issue with condensation that bad I had to move rooms. Res-life is a joke they don't take anything seriously and most are literal students in their third year that will openly admit they don't care and are just doing it for the money and most ironically enough are usually the ones partying all night. Students union is also ****, they'd rather focus on topical issues that will earn them social brownie points then fixing the real problems with the uni (which there are many). The cost is also insane considering you get what is possibly the minimum size legally allowed to live with literal prison bricks to add to your demise. Speaking of the flats, good luck entering the kitchen without throwing up, never mind actually being able to USE the facilities. At least you sad *****get good Wi-Fi

Negatives: Arrived in halls. Not even shown around your room before you pick up the key. Clearly not been cleaned well, very few people in my block meant things were antisocial, people shouting and blaring music in the courtyard in the early hours made it difficult to sleep, kitchen was atrocious, oven didn't work properly and burnt everything. Googled the model and they don't even make parts for it anymore it's that old (we're talking 1970s). Room looks old. No privacy on wifi, people were logging into their spotify accounts on other's devices to play music. Cellar spiders in nearly every corner when I arrived. Needed a good clean. Washing machines were disgusting as well, only one was clean when I arrived. Positives: Staff very helpful. Uni is great, ensuite accommodation isn't. Stick to Leek Road Halls or stay at home and you'll be fine.

What can i say good about these halls I was very mad and upset by the way they have been left.and that smell. how people can live like a pig and get away with it disgusting. so dirty and smelly not been cleaned at all. What happen to a March out to show they've been trougly before letting the students leave? Floor had rice and food and black grime sticky. Freezer and fridge seal broke and rusted inside and out. Sink very dirty and rusty. Work tops stained and very dirty the dust well terrible.. Food on walls . Kitchen cupboard need a wipe The microwave dirty as the grease grime in the kettle Cooker burnt on the doors very rusty on hinges and the dirty well you can see they tried to clean it but stopped.. Chairs horrid to sit on no sofa which I feel would be nice. And no toaster so best all flat mates chip in to buy one I guess.. Bedroom.. no computer chair take long leads very basic bed hard. toilet bad. They did replace stuff and clean it but still on going repairs & plumbing

I moved in at Christmas time and the member of staff who helped me (we shall call him Mr. X) was the friendliest man I have ever met! He is lovely! I had an issue with my door and he refused to go home without fixing it. He also helped me take something out of the back of my car which was quite heavy but, he was more than happy to help me. Couldn't thank him enough. Once I was settled in, I felt happy and contented. I moved from another accommodation which I was very unhappy about; partying outside my window at 2AM and not really getting much sleep. However, if you live here, you are under 2 miles away from the uni and you are not allowed to park in the car park that is supplied (can't really understand why). The price of the permit is £60 for you to park miles away to abide by the over 2 miles policy. Mr X was kind enough to give me a 2 week grace period to try and get myself sorted. The communal area could do with an update and something like a couch to be able to socialise.

The halls are extremely dated and tatty. The comunal area is a kitchen with just a table and no sofa area. The team continually bombard us with emails threatening with fines. As someone with Aspergers and anxiety I find this experience stressful as I feel I’m at risk of doing something wrong and reviving a fine.

When moving in, it was apparent that these halls had not been refurbished for a really long time. However, I have really great flat mates and a really big room that is nice and spacious. However, the promised 24 hours notice before inspections is a complete deception as they give you a piece of paper at the start of the year and say that serves as the years notice in small writing which is, at best, sneaky. Also, after reporting twice that my desk was broken, noting happened until I physically went to the office and told someone personally, at which point they told me it had never been written down in the book! In summary, I think that these halls are adequate because they are far enough away to be quiet, but are still close enough to be involved, However, they meed to be ran by the staff much much better and the res-life officers (RLO's) are a joke as they are completely useless and act like they don't care. So Happy overall, but room for LOTS of improvement!

I can't stress enough how awful the halls are. Arrived in September and the place was filthy. But worse is how you're treated. They claim you get 24 hours notice of a room check, instead they happily waltz in and out regardless of time or day. Complete invasion of privacy. If a landlord acted like this you'd have right to terminate the contract, here you don't. They tie you into a contract till June, when I only needed until April (lost out on about a grand). Less of a home, more like a prison where they take every penny you own. Had it not been for the course, this would have been the worst year of my life. Don't make my mistake. By all means study here, but go for private accommodation where they have to act according to housing laws and not their own brand of money grabbing free for all. Even the porter is more interested in handing out excessive fines than doing his job. The best part, I've not once gotten an apology. Please, do not stay here.

The staff are friendly and helpful when I've spoken to them. It's the furthest halls from the uni buildings but it's a nice walk with the bridge and it's not too far. The only social spaces are the kitchens (which is only with your flat mates) and the court yard. It's quite cold out so at the moment it's only really those who smoke that go out there. It would be nice to have a little common room to meet new people and hang out with them.

Internet and Shower suck. Pay more, get less. For example Aynsley got renovated before Clarice, they pay less money than us and they get totally new kitchens, TV in their kitchen.. Whereas we get an oven that was older than me.

It's it about a 10/15 minute walk to college road side of campus, handy to the student night club though it could be cheaper, and only really good to social with people if you smoke as their is like a area for the smokers to meet. You have weekly cleaning checks which help keep the place clean. The common room is also the kitchen. So basically your paying 108 a week for a small bedroom, a en-suit and a kitchen. Internet a bit s*** but that's studentcom for you.

Overall the halls are good, however they could be made better by having a communal area such as a small living room that's more than a dining table- or Atleast a couple of comfy chairs. The internet is awful and cuts out on many peoples devices (including my own) after about 5 minutes, and £1000 extra for an ensuite bathroom is ridiculous as the shower is awful too

The halls are located a 5 minute walk from the campus, it is quite which is good at night and during exams. However the university does not provide a common room for socialising withing clarice. Like all the accommodation at Staffs there is only a table and hard chairs in the kitchens. However the rooms are reasonably sized (The best room is the one closest to the door as it's the biggest) And it's always a positive to have your own shower and toilet , it's worth the extra £30

good to live with your own bathroom but in a dangerous location as you can't walk over the bridge on your own in the dark, unsociable and the worst Accomadation I could have ever picked!

Clarice Cliff Court is better if you like your privacy but costs a lot more than other halls. It is also further away from the main campus which can be good and bad (less noise but a longer walk to classes)
