Lived in Limes Court for first year, really high standard of accommodation, generally very quiet, may be better for quieter students rather than those who like to party a lot. My bedroom window backed on to a grassy area with birds and trees so very peaceful. Good portering service. Only negatives are the price, it's the cheapest YSJ Hall but it's still quite dear. Also location, it's a good 15-20 minute walk to uni, and that's on a good day, though you do get used to the walk. Last negative would be the size of the fridge and freezer, they're very small and it can be difficult sharing a freezer that size with four others. Overall, very happy with my stay in Limes and highly recommend it to prospective students.

I loved living at Limes. It's a nice easy 15 minute walk from campus, and 20 minutes into town, there's a shop round the corner with two supermarkets about 10 minutes away by foot, and there's very close access to bus routes to anywhere you need to be. Then there's the accommodation itself; the rooms are cozy, there's plenty of storage both in the rooms and in the kitchen, which is a nice communal space facing out into the main square. The main square makes Limes seem very communal and safe as all houses can see who's coming and going and makes it feel like a real little community. It also feels more homely as Limes isn't a block of flats, but is a collection of self contained houses. There's also an on site security team who are around every day, with security driving around all of the accommodations every couple of hours 24 hours a day to make sure all is well. I would highly recommend Limes Court.

I was apprehensive at first about this accommodation because everyone had complained it was quite a walk from the university, but after a few weeks of getting my bairings I realised it is not bad at all! The walk takes 15-20mins maximum which is the same for the likes of Percy's lane, St. John central etc. Also I round limes court to be a really friendly place to live, with the design and big kitchen Windows it's easy to socialise with new people and very welcoming as supposed to being in a flat where it is harder to mix with neighbours.

A quiet "village style" accommodation with WiFi that isn't very reliable but considering it's the cheapest, it's better than expected. Lazy people: I will warn you that it is the accommodation that is the furthest away with a good 15-20 minute walk to campus... But on the plus side, it keeps you fit!

Great value for money but it's a bit far out from the university / city centre. Only had ethernet connections to internet even though we were told they would have WiFi by 2014. No lounge to hang out with friends / housemates so you have to spend time in the kitchen or each others rooms. Shared bathrooms are not bad at all, only sharing with two other people maximum and you barely realise.

Lovely house, cheap for what you get just too far from uni. Didn't get the full student experience as only 29 houses.

Poor support from management, reported member of house for smoking weed but nothing was done. The security is not great, anyone could walk in without security knowing.
