Overall, Queens Road is fantastic accommodation. Only problems are the wifi, but that's the same across most universities as Eduroam isn't great. Also, the cleaners aren't too brilliant. They don't do all the jobs they're supposed to do in the kitchen and I often find myself having to do them myself.
I asked for a quiet flat, I was put with 3 other people which was fine. However what angered me is how the university has put people with a disability together! I stated that I have a disability. I do not need an accessible room, I can do everything fine and I stated that but the university decided to put me with three other people with a disability and it feels like segregation ! I feel like I should have hidden the fact I'm disabled..
Right on campus and decent value for money if you're in a shared room like I was, but I wouldn't want to pay the full price for a single room. The communal space is small and kind of dirty but the kitchen itself is clean and has plenty of space. The wifi and phone signal can be iffy depending on where in the halls you are. E.g. my wifi worked in my room but not the phone signal, and visa versa in the kitchen/communal area.
no common room or social spaces are in this hall, however we have Facebook chats and the lay out makes it very easy to socialise! my only complaint is that you cant open the windows all the way and we don't have our own launderette (have to use burma roads)
Brilliant maintenance. If you have a broken and report it they fix it pretty quickly. I have bad wifi in my flat but Ethernet cable works fine. So close to my lectures. Massive desk space, not much drawer space
Exactly what I was looking for. Had a wonderful time there and would not really change a thing. As student accommodation goes it was amazing. Even had friends from the other halls (including Burma Road) saying it was better.
Fantastic experience. Nice and big single ensuite rooms. Kitchen comes with 16 inch LCD TV with DVD player. If you have lots of stuff, there is a long desk/table where you can pretty much put your PC and TV and console.
Queens is by far the best halls at the uni. They have the biggest bedrooms although some kitchens are smaller than others. The cleaners are great and if you are lucky enough to have Nige then your kitchen will be sparkling all year! Living with 5 other people is fine, even if you don't like them! Although, don't all shower at the same time... Sometimes the hot water doesn't spread far enough... Queens is slightly quieter than Westdowns but is definitely worth slightly more money! Don't listen to anyone on Burma, Queens is definitely better value for money!
