Not bad for the money, good facilities, right next to a 24 hour supermarket which is unbelievably useful, great if you're a very social person, weekly cleaner is really good and free laundry facilities are handy. Unfortunately shared areas are small, bedrooms are small, fire alarms will go off if you have a shower or spray deodorant, the security can take up to twenty minutes to respond to the fire alarms but will turn up within five minutes for noise complaints, there are silverfish in the shared rooms and the heating is on high all year. Personally I'd recommend Randal Lines, the rooms are bigger and cheaper, even if you have to deal with shower cubicles instead of shower rooms.

The accommodation services are shocking. Almost criminally aggressive. The rooms are old, poor and smelly. The management has an ambition to issue 'fines' to every student for communal issues. Honestly, please do not come here. The staff are scum.

The location is good because your near to asda. But it's too expensive for what your getting. The shower is like a prison shower

Poor wifi, rude staff in accommodation services, constant emails from accommodation services, no social space in standard except 3 chairs in the kitchen which is appalling when sharing with 5 other people!!! Loud, rude residents in other blocks and only 4 washing machines and 4 dryers for the whole student village it's absurd!!!!

Halls are what you make it. If you want to stay in your room all the time then do, but if you party hard all you need is a big group, music and drinks! In the standard halls where I live there isn't a social space (no living area) however in ensuite there is and that's good. It doesn't really bother me as you play a lot of drinking games for pre drinks so you don't need a seat anyway! Any problems that need fixing (door handles etc) you log a call and maintenance will fix it ASAP. Security are lovely and really helpful. Cleaning staff are nice, you have kitchen inspection every week & they come to do the toilet and shower weekly.

I'm absolutely amazed at how much I love staying here - sure, everywhere has it's disadvantages but there are so many great aspects about this accommodation that it makes you overlook the tiny faults in the place. The rooms are bigger than I expected and there's plenty of storage space and for people to enjoy company without the room feeling overcrowded. Sharing a toilet and a shower isn't as bad as I thought it would be either - unless you're waiting to pee when someone is in the loo! The kitchen facilities are very well equipped: you have your own cupboard with your door number on and a place to put a padlock (no one likes stolen cornflakes!), you share the fridge & freezer but there's enough room for everyone and there's even a little breakfast bar to make eating a sociable event.

Nothing special: beds are uncomfortable, didn't do health and safety checks on shelves in our rooms causing some people to have valuable items damaged due to them falling off the walls.

Over zealous security staff. Tragic cleaning & maintenance policies. Terrible appointment of rooms, regardless of the tenants questionnaire. No effort to meet & greet between other residents by staff or residential assistants. If you're coming to the university of wolverhampton and want to have a decent laugh, go private!

The social space isn't big enough to hang out with corridor mates. Cleaning and location superb.

It's alright. Not too bad. Pretty clean and pretty good for the money as most things are included such as Internet, gym membership etc.

A corridor with a kitchen on the end provided little entertaining. Consuela did our washing up sometimes, but when she left you would wake up to cleaning staff moaning in the corridor at the mess.

Not a bad space, quiet place to study if you're in the right halls. Can be social depending on when you move in and the people in your hall.

The living space was a myth, security never came to fire alarms. Everything else was perfect

Very expensive for the Area of Wolverhampton- Halls cost £97 a week when my second year house will cost £65 a week. The location is a 10 minute walk from the University and city centre, very convenient. There is no social spaces other than your own kitchens and all the cleaning is done by yourself.
