I am currently a student at the University of Sunderland, I am living in Scotia Quay, Allan House and my experience has been horrible. The pros are: the fast wifi and the fact that you have your own bathroom, also its very peaceful and quiet. The cons: 1st Security constantly enters your flat and it's the most annoying thing ever, the security never seems to have a reasonable reason to why they are constantly going inside the flat and it honestly bothers me a lot and I've seen security go inside students rooms which is invasion of privacy; 2nd rules are too strict for nothing, staff and security are always on the look out and treat the students as kids that don't know what they're doing, like someone else said, is like boarding school where you live in a room and have so many dumb rules that u feel like you're in prison. finally 3rd the location of the halls is too far away from the University campus, and even if there is a mini bus that takes us to uni, its always late.
It is like being a boarding school. Get spoke to like children off the staff and have place freshers next to family's which means any slight noise we were getting complaints. There is no social space just a tiny kitchen for all 5 of us (only four chairs). The best way to explain it is it feels like your children at a boarding school. Wouldn't do it again
