if you decide to come to this uni, do NOT stay in halls! firstly, the halls are very expensive for what you get- there are constantly issues with the hot water not working. They say it's because only one person can have a shower at any one time. but how does that work when there's 8 of you in a flat who all have 9am classes and all want t shower? next, the cleaners always refuse to cleans everyone's flats unless they are spotless. they won't even mop the floor if theres some washing up to be done. housing at Winchester uni are a massive group of bored workers with nothing to do but go round flats moaning about the mess or dragging student into meetings to get them in trouble. if you stay in halls at Winchester uni they will take the entire student experience away from you! just be clever and go to Southampton instead
WiFi sometimes drops out, in the winter we had huge problems with water and were left without for a few days and were given litre bottles of bottled water. Beds are extremely uncomfortable and rooms are roasting on a hot day (not enough ventilation) due to the windows only opening about 3 inches.
Great, modern flats and are very open! Cleaner comes in twice a week and maintenance is easy to contact. My block had poor wifi but it may be different elsewhere. Rooms are small but spacious enough and the ensuite is great! The main problem is how often fire alarms occur, but the fan in the kitchen needs to be on when cooking to prevent them.
Great place to live, so close to your lectures that you can roll out of bed 10 minutes before a lecture starts and you won't be late! The halls are cleaned twice a week but be warned, if you leave lots of dishes on the sides they will not clean anywhere and if like us you do it a few times the cleaners will hold a grudge and not clean your halls if there are just a few things out later in the term (we also caught our cleaners sitting around with a cup of tea when they thought we weren't in!). The lifts have a tendency to break once or twice a term but they are fixed super quickly (the maintenance team is amazing!) and you will have to face the super early fire alarm tests but you would get that anywhere. The kitchen is big enough for all 8 of your flat and the seating means that there is somewhere that you can all hang out together.
Living in Burma has been fun, everyone in the flat gets on really well with each other and we socialise with people in the other flats quite often. Only problem is that the fire alarms are really sensitive so in the first semester they were going off really often
My first semester in Burma has been amazing. The friends I have made in my flat I know I'll be friend with for life. The halls are clean, tidy and well managed, the bedrooms are spacious and the communal area in the kitchen is great for flat parties ;)
Lived here for a year closest to uni can literally roll out of bed! Cleaners are a bit rubbish as they don't clean if it's too messy and don't clean if you have already kept it quite clean ! However really expensive for what you actually get!
Burma Road Student Village is the most expensive student managed accommodation at the University of Winchester. However what you get is brilliant. The kitchen and common area is big and modern and always clean due to the fantastic cleaners that come in every weekday. The room itself has so much space and storage. Regarding the location its brilliant, you can walk to the main campus in less that 2 minutes and town in 10 minutes. Wouldn't have wanted any other accommodation but Burma Road!
loved staying here in Burma, even if the fire alarm goes off daily but that's just because of people in other flats burning things, the block B lift has broken down a few times but has been fine since. It's been very sociable as me and my flatmates tend to travel over the flat next to us and hang out so it 's really fun, also being close to the main campus is a great help as the walk is steep but quick :)
Wi-fi intermittently disconnects from time to time and has poor signal range. Halls are priced very expensively (£5325) comapred to the prices of other local universities such as Bournemouth (£4880); considering the basic nature of provisions and lack of a common room outside of the kitchen, it seems a tad expensive. Housing management however is top notch.
I'm in Block E of Burma Road and the rooms are a decent size and the en-suite is adequate for what you need. The kitchen is good and bright. The cleaners do a good job and keep the kitchen clean. My only issue is with the automatic sensor lights in the bathroom, mine keeps going off if I'm in the shower for more than 10 minutes.
The halls are cleaned twice a week... not very well. The location is the best out of all the university halls (15 mins from town, literally in the middle of campus). Noise is an issue for the middle blocks. There is no social space other than the kitchen but I assume that is normal? In terms of value for money, the room is tiny compared to Queens halls, yet at Burma we pay more.
It's a good place to live if you actually make an attempt to leave your flat and make friends. If you don't like stairs, don't live in Block B as the lift always breaks. Also I hope you like wake up calls as the fire alarm can go off in the middle of the night. Other than that, a great place to live
