paying a rather large amount of money for the amount of faults we have had in these halls. many weekends through out the winter period with no hot water or heating. Many times the internet hasn't worked. faulty cooker had to be replaced multiple times. ( the first week we went with out a cooker, even after reporting it, they brought us a new one and left it sat there for ages, before informing us that we had to put in another request to have the cooker connected. where is the logic in that? on a positive note, it is very close to the Student union and lectures, which tends to be really handy, The social environment is normally very lively.
Apparently we are suppose to get toilet roll every week from the cleaners, we only got it for the first week. Even the student shop doesn't sell toilet roll or bin bags (two of the most important things leaving in a shared communal space/toilet/bathroom) Apart from that, spot on.
Avon flat 10 was left with no hot water at peak time for 5 weeks. (You could sometimes get a hot shower at 2 in the morning.) It was a long fight to finally get some of our rent back for what we went through. Other than that issue, the Avon halls are based the closest to the student union and lecture halls. (making it easier to get takeaway delivered to than others.) The joint balcony's make a very social environment and easy to pop from one flat to another. The large grass space in the middle block was also great for playing games in and setting up a pool on hot days. The rooms were a reasonable size (Room D is slightly smalls and room B slightly bigger.) They had a useful amount of storage and space. I did move my room around a bit, you may get told off by the flat inspectors but as long as you move it back before you go they don't really mind. The common room we changed around about 50 times which was also fine.
