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.

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!

Great accommodation however only a communal kitchen to share and no area to sit together to 'chill' other than rooms.

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.

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**t 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!

There's no common room, only social space is outside or your kitchen. Not a good value for money. Wouldn't recommend.

Not impressed, have to move out before my course is finished because that makes sense. So expensive and got to leave before my course is finished. Good one.

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)

needs more social space, needs to be painted nicer, I feel like I'm in prison. Showers need to be bigger.
