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!

Amazing halls! Little bit dated in the living/cooking areas but incredibly clean and a great size. Highly recommend them to any student. Some things need updating but other than that it was great. Would also recommend post boxes on the block walls

I could see both of my friends flats from.my.room and I had a big room. It was the best value for money out of all the accommodation. I had a good relationship with my flat mates and we had a lot of fun doing silly things together and have too many flat parties

Comfortable and affordable accommodation. Big rooms, could possibly benefit from a little revamp. Also kitchens could benefit from 2 ovens for a flat with 9 people.

It's more of a prison than halls. The cleaning staff make messes constantly and try to charge students for fees for their messes. There are no iews, it is all clustered together. Unfortunately literally right next to a maternity ward at a hospital. Good luck sleeping on Wednesday nights. Fire alarms go off constantly, and the security team is overly aggressive and has forced students outside while it is snowing while they bumble around the fire system. Wifi is abysmal, and the cupboards for food are tiny. Mine is right next to an oven, so my food spoils rapidly.

Overpriced for what it is. Maintenance wasn’t great, had to wait a week for a bulb to be replaced, should have just done it myself. Wifi and phone signal were both shocking and need to be addressed.

Very average student accommodation, could do with new sofas as they were horrific and covered in Stains. We had our fridge break once and also our oven break. So more tests need to be done before students actually move in, for safety reasons.

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.

Brilliant facilities, good location, secure and well managed. The only major complaint I have is that en-suite showers have quite shallow floors and are prone to flooding at time. Otherwise very really good!

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)

The showers here are absolutely incredible. It's expensive, but I'd say it's worth paying a bit extra just for the shower. Cleaned regularly, it's quiet (at least where I am) but it's not completely dead.

Dry and sterile. Not particularly friendly. Just flats with 7 rooms and a small kitchen. Usual sort of thing. Doesn't encourage interaction due to lack of proper communal spaces.
