Most helpful review

The houses themselves are fantastic, they have been recently renovated and are modern. Houses is definitely the social place to be at university - there is a hut in the middle that people constantly meet at, and you get to know loads of people from other houses. We've had many people move from Clarice Cliff to Houses after coming down here most days! The location is good, right in the middle of the Stoke campus. The LRV club is a thirty second walk away, which is a blessing when you're going but a curse when you want to sleep on Wednesday night. The major issue I have is ResLife themselves. They are awful. They constantly have cleaning inspections, and if something is slightly out of place they'll threaten you with a fine. The majority of houses get threatened with fines at least once a week. This year, there has been construction work and I know one house has had scaffolding in front of it since the second week of Semester 1 (we're now well into Semester 2).

I got the best room in the house, but the Kitchen has some issues with damp that are being addressed.

The ResLife team can be a little over the top. And they are pretty much out to make money. The only let down.

Living in houses on campus has no benefit whatsoever unless all your seminars/lectures are in the science centre. You never get a lie in as all the delivery lorries come right outside your window beeping every day, you can't sleep with the window open as there is some sort of wheezing generator behind the houses by the science building, if you don't go out to the SU because you have work or don't want to or are poorly or whatever, you may as well because the music is so loud it sounds like it's right outside your room. The toilets don't flush and the bath taps have no temperature other from boiling or freezing, same with all the taps in the house. The university took away cleaners and increased the rent, makes sense!!! They swapped the cleaners to "house inspectors" who are so petty that if a pepperoni fell off your pizza in the oven and you missed it, you will fail. Fail a few times and they threaten you with a fine. Also the oven/hob is highly inaccurate and cupboard space is crap.

Imagine hell without the fire. if you stay here each semester will feel like 14 long centuries of pure boredom. It will break you down to a spoiled little raisin of a human and you'll wish you never came to the depressing, motivationless pit that is Stoke-on-Trent.
