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.

Amazing location of halls. Kitchen and rooms are really good sizes. However, for the price it's quite expensive.

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.

It doesn't have a homey feel to it. Feels a bit prison like. The common rooms, while practical, are not very nice to sit in. People prefer to sit in the hallway, rather than the kicthen

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 ;)

Very lovely rooms, although a little small but the en-suite is excellent. The kitchen is big with plenty of fridge/freezer and cupboard space and the halls are next to your lectures!

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.

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
