Very nice place to live. Good room with enough space, big wardrobe, plenty of shelves including lovely ones near bed, very nice bathroom. Staff are amazing, very helpful. A bit pricy, but worth it. Very close to centre, Lidl is just in a minute of walking. Overall great place for students to live!

Made good friends here! In the beginning of the year everyone was really friendly, at the end of the year they didn't care anymore and the staff reacts really rude. They don't help with communication and don't give an entry notice in time. They can give a harsh comment if you ask for help or something doesn't go how they want it. Lift broke down and they didn't give any updates. They defend it was only for sone weeks but in the end we didn't have a lift for almost 2 months. In the end they didn't care anymore. Wifi is also really bad and cuts out almost every day. A lot of noise in the courtyard and the security doesn't do anything about it cause they are too busy watching youtube on their phone. In the end they didn't give as much freebies anymore and no free breakfast anymore. Too expensive.

WiFi always cuts out and goes down, when lift is broken it takes months to fix and complaints don’t get sorted unless you complain multiple times, I.e maggots in flat

Alright place, staff is quite nice but head manager says to his staff that they can't be close with their tenants to talk to them about stuff. Good location, but a bit overpriced for the services (washingmachines, lift breaks down and don't fix it). Loud in the courtyard at night (it can be loud on a student night, but they should keep it in hand).

Thanks so much for your review, we'd love for you to come and speak to us as we're really sorry that we didnt meet your expectations. Our 24 hour team are always happy to respond to any issues, including noise so be sure to contact them if this happens again. If you do have any problems with the washing machines please let us know straight away and we'll contact the provider on your behalf to sort these out if they arent helping you. We're sorry that our lift was out of action for a couple of weeks, however the safety of our residents has to come first and until our supplier was able to source the correct parts we couldnt put it back in use. On this occassion our supplier let us down and weren't able to resolve it as quickly as we wanted, however the lift has been operational since December without any futher issues. If you have any problems again please come down and speak to us. :)

I rate the hall management one star because as I was booking on for next year with a £200 off deal, they reassured me it would be easy to cancel if I successfully got a YII placement as long as I cancelled before July and they still said that the day I booked. March I successfully got a placement sorted, but I couldn't cancel my contract for next year because the policies had changed half way through this deal and multiple staff kept relaying me incorrect information and has now caused me even more stress to find someone to replace my contract on top of assignments and exams as I have no time to. I read all the policies last year and was completely unaware they changed. The amount of money you're paying, you'd think that someone would take out the bins and go over the kitchen or at least make sure the kitchen is clean every once a week but only the entrance to the block and lift are cleaned. The good points: 24 hour security, amazing social spaces and 24 hour parcel pick up.

Living in St David’s is great. There are social events that are amazing and the staff are so lovely. I love my flat and the facilities as well. I didn’t consider moving into a house for my second year, I rebooked my room instead.

Overall, solid accomodation, however, and this is only my experience, you can be made to feel uncomfortable at times by other people, esspecially for someone like me who gets anxious easily.

I really love living at St. David’s! The team are all so friendly and welcoming, hosting a variety of events suitable for everyone! The halls are so close to everything that you need mike uni campuses, the train station, bus stations, shops and supermarkets to get food! The city centre is a short five to ten minute walk, making it super easy for students to be sociable. We are also surrounded by lots of beaches and nature trails so we can go for walks! St David’s is awesome!
