I was in a block away from the others so it was harder to socialise with people, my room was damp, our heater was broken boiler ducktaped together, basically the halls was a joke how they expect people to live there I don't know, some flats were completely infested with bed bugs too

Student Review: 2 /5

Truly awful experience, there were rats in our kitchen FOR MONTHS and when reported (from the start of the academic year) was told “we’re looking into it”, wasn’t until around March that it actually got sorted. In between this, I had several meetings with the accommodation team, to be told “we’ve not had any reports of this, are you sure you saw it?” They only seem to care if you’re in a senior resident’s block, which I wasn’t. 3 people out of 5 complained about mould in the rooms. My radiator was broken for ages, so my room was like a freezer, which resulted in me getting ill and when I returned was told “because your room is on the outside, it’s fine for it to be cold” and was then told “you can just buy a draught excluder”. As of writing this, there is now an ant infestation, which presumably won’t be sorted either. You couldn’t get me to stay here again, even if YOU payed ME. Save your money and live on the street, because it’ll be safer and cosier than these prison cell rooms

This is my opinion in for 2 years in a row. The 440 pounds are not worthy at all for a small space and noisy. I say noisy because you literally can hear anything such as people next door talking, theres almost zero privacy in this halls. The worst thing is the flats with 10 rooms are unhuman with 1 shower, 1 toilet, and 1 bathroom with both included. We only have 2 fridges medium size for 10 people who usally cook. On my first year i thought it was the best thing, but you will get tired. Sadly, many people stay here for the money but still to expensive for what it is. Social space is the front door where everyone smokes or in the ugly kitchen during friday and saturdays. Good thing is the brook street is in the center of high wycombe and close from university.

Cons: The rooms are tiny and feel like prision cells. The fire alarm goes off every single day Too many people in the flats (8) (sometimes even during the night). The cleaning ladies don't really do much. In my experience at least, most of the people on my course lived in hughenden. Really noisy Pros: It's opposite a bus station and the Eden shopping centre. 3 minute walk from Sainsbury's and 7 minute walk from Tesco and Morrisons. Cheapest accommodation. I'd recommend to go to Hughenden tbh, it's a bit more expensive and not as close to university but I'd say it's worth it.

Only gets annoying when you don't want to go out, and the entire flat does and spends 4 hours screaming their heads off. But otherwise it's a pretty nice living space, with privacy etc

Rooms were like prison cells with breeze blocks. However had a fantastic experience here, socially speaking. Made great friends and made the best of what we had. Very much enjoyed living at this halls, but the rooms could be updated. Also, there was no wifi which was just annoying.

Incredibly lively halls, which has its pros and cons. Location is perfect-can be at uni in 4 minutes walking and in the town centre in 5.

It's pretty cheap, and I guess it is pretty basic, but you meet the best people and it's so close to uni.
