It’s a good place for first years students when you don’t know the town well enough and would like to make new friends. But once you’re familiar with the town and all it’s probably better to move out because it’s not really worth the money. And it’s far from uni. Going to the laundry can be a pain in the ass when you’re carrying loads and walking all the way there. Facilities in some flats like the kitchen and the toilets are great but some are really horrible when we’re all paying the same amount. Most of the things are worn out when I first moved in and there were loads of problems with them. The shower drain is always clogged, the shower hasn’t been working for a month and even after informing to the reception, nothing was done and I was told that they work with what’s on their priority. So a shower not working for almost a month is not a priority? There’s cleaner coming in every week to clean common areas but most of the time they’ll just bring the garbages out.
The hall management are very rude and unprofessional, threatening to kick people out over a matter which is pathetic and had no ground to stand on. Although the flat is ours, the hall management feel it appropriate to send people into out flat banging on our doors at 9 in the morning, which makes us feel very uncomfatble because we don't know who is walking into our flat without invitation
It's good just a lot seemed to break our hot water in the kitchen has gone off for days at a time twice now. We've had something shot threw the communal foor and it's still broken nearly a month on Other than that I've had a great time and I'll be back next year with my crew
Kitchen is outdated and so is the equipment, my room is large but with no double glazed Windows, noise and cold get in which is really annoying. Walls are really thin too so you hear everything, also really annoying. Halls staff are good and fix anything usually within a day. Good location I suppose, close to the metro and loads of takeaways, 30 minute walk from Sunderland city campus and not within walking distance to the st Peter's campus
I live close to Sunderland anyway, but clanny house is just not the best accommodation. It's cheap and good for the money you pay but maintenance take forever to attend any problems and don't always fix them. It's fine for what I need but I now prefer to live at home during the week instead of staying there when I don't have uni.
Very cheap accommodation. The exterior may look data but the interiors of the furnished flats were nice. Clanny House is a fair distance from the uni but that's not a problem due to the free bus service. I would definitely recommend!
Unfriendly, unclean, unsafe (we found out that there are no cameras facing our block when someone put two holes in the glass in our front door, and it took them weeks to replace it, also gates are never locked and it's extremely easy for people to get in), no privacy (the RSAs have a tendency of walking in without knocking), fire alarms constantly go off, very VERY little room to store food.
Everything a student flat should be. Constant social events, the security are funny and let you get away with a lot. It's cheap, the rooms are big and it's well maintained. I think people expect a lot more but they have yet to experience halls at other university's. Anyone that came to visit from other uni's commented on the size of the rooms.
Very basic halls. Only some of the blocks have been recently refurbished meaning most of the blocks could do with a major update. International students that were here for only 6 month placements get put in the blocks with the newly refurbished kitchens and big living room area leaving us in the worst blocks. I was in block 2 and the kitchen and living room for the 6 of us in my flat were so small it was a joke.
