Most helpful review

Overall it's a good accommodation. It's built right on the river which gives you nice views and only 5 minutes away from the city center on foot. I'd say its a bit on the expensive side because it looks kind of old compared to other student accommodations but overall a nice and safe stay

Great place to stay as first year student or even second year. You can make new friends at the accomodation and adapt quickly to the environment and lifestyle.

Really good location, short walk to both campuses and shops. Lovely that it is right alongside the river!

A location that is close to the city and St Peters campus, both in walking distance.

I am not being dramatic by saying this is the worst place I have ever lived in my life, and I’ve been homeless before. The accommodation is filthy! The carpet in my room I cleaned because it stinks and so much brown water came out and it had an awful stench. The blinds were broken upon moving, as well as the light, and the cupboard under the sink is dodgy. The wall however is the worst. It is clearly extremely disgusting and old, it is grey! half the paint is literally scratched and scuffed off on the wall and it looks awful. Kitchen missing tons of tiles and flatmates do not wash their dishes or remove rubbish for months and it makes me physically ill, and when I tell accommodation they do nothing. The shower is awful and is not hot at all, it is lukewarm on max temperature and the whole room becomes a waterslide if you want the heat to come on. Oven is old and barely works, hasn't been changed. Old years expired food from previous tenants… Security didn’t respond to vandalism.

I moved in "whole female" flat, but I experienced that low security and restrictions. I always lost my food in the kitchen and private letters. Staying in the room is my nightmare ever; unlimited issues may experience, i.e. management, securities, quality of people. I was visiting and living in many countries, including Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, China, and other states. This place brought me the highest level of upset ever. Good Luck if you choose this as your next pit stop.

The only good thing is that you can rent a room without giving money in advance and the bills are all included, but let’s start with the cons We as a flat had many problems with water leaking out of the ceiling there is carpet everywhere and nobody clean them properly so you can imagine the smell when it was wet, I’ve send many emails and after two weeks somebody did answer finally but the building is so old and not well constructed so there will be problems anyway The rooms are very small and I payed a rent of nearly 430£ a month and the money doesn’t represent value at all!! It is very windy always and if you don’t have a car sometimes going somewhere can be very annoying, there isn’t any supermarkets and shop’s near so you have to carry everything or pay for delivery at home which is not that expensive but sometimes you just need something small. The showers are so small that if you have problems with being in a close environment you should consider looking for something else

Spent my first year of uni here in 2005/2006, and was a regular visitor to halls in my remaining years for the social scene and close student community. One of the best years of my life

The rooms and shared spaces are very spacious and have plenty of storage space. The showers are brilliant and flats of 6 makes sharing easy.

Best halls in Sunderland if you like nice facilities and good atomasphere but not overly rowdy. Nice view of the river and the balconys are great for parties and sunny days! also, the showers were the best. showers. ever.

Really good for people who like to be sociable and meets lots of people at once. Better located for St Peters Campus rather than the city.
