Value for money is what it is not, and it is relatively cheap in comparison to the cost of other university accommodations. Hall Management extremely lazy, my bed has been broken for the whole year despite making serval complaints, the halls are filthy. Unfortunately I have to share a bathroom, the shower is the smallest box ever, and they apparently clean it every Monday only for it to still be filthy, the water drains ridiculously slowly so you end up having a paddling pool in your shower. The toilet again filthy although they do better job at cleaning this instead of a hard dryer or something they have a towel roll thing quite unhygienic in my opinion. Common room? There isn't one, no sofa no TV nothing, there is a resource limited kitchen with a fridge that has 5 shelves for 6 people to share and half a freezer, might I add that when I moved in the fridge had flies and mould in it to which we were told they weren't going to do anything about
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
