I’m friends with a couple people in limes and it has a really good community. At freshers people were really friendly and the house is pretty good. Security comes round twice a day but even if they didn’t people are awake at all hours and because it’s a cul-de-sac with big windows in the kitchen it feels very safe. All the rooms have big pin boards so it’s really good if you like to personalise. The main issues are: The fridge and freezer are too small- they’re both mini fridge size shared between 5 people It’s a 15/20 minute walk to the uni which is fine but if you’re wanting too and from a few times a day it’s a pain (I was doing 20,000 steps a day at freshers). Personally I use my bike which is good for getting shopping as well. The bike facility’s are good- there’s two shed just outside all the front doors but there’s a normal bike shed as well. The washing machines are overpriced (£2.20 per wash and £1.50 dryers) but you kinda just have to cope For more look as ysjconfess

very standard uni rooms and very basic communal/kitchen area, would have been nice if there was a sofa and a bit more to the communal area. needed new carpets and a coat of paint. being on the ground floor is very annoying as housemates above are loud and you can really clearly hear them through the floor

Limes Court is good if you’re looking for cheaper accommodation, but that may be the only positive about it. It consists of 5 rooms in a house, with one bathroom upstairs and one down, and lastly a medium sized kitchen with a small dining table to sit around (that’s the only social area you get.) To start off, the kitchen: the fridge & freezer are tiny, sharing with 4 other people is tough due to the sheer lack of space you get, but a plus side is you do manage to get at least two cupboards and a drawer each. The bathrooms are very small & when I moved in the shower heads were broken & took a while to be replaced, also there’s no window in them so be careful of any steam from hot showers. The bedrooms: the small bedrooms are still pretty big with a single bed, large desk and even a double wardrobe. The walls are also paper thin so maybe think about ear plugs if you’re a light sleeper. Relatively good location. Overall 3/5. Wouldn’t stay here again. Better options out there imo.

Probably the ysj residence with the most homely feel. Limes Court is a small court of houses which is regularly tidied and kept appealing. The kitchen is a good size but the fridge and freezer could most certainly be bigger. It's a little annoying only having the kitchen/dining area as the only social space in the house as it is quite hard to get comfortable and you can't sit on those wooden chairs for too long. The houses are cleaned once a month (only kitchen, bathrooms and corridors) but perhaps not as thoroughly as you'd expect. The maintenance is very good, if you call about an issue, you usually get someone coming round within 1-3 days and they always fix it. The rooms are a great size, they feature a single bed, large desk, 2 chairs, shelves, a bedside table with 2 drawers, a wardrobe and some weird thing with a curtain- haven't yet worked out what that is for. There is a very large notice board next to the bed so I would recommend buying something to cover it. Very good accomod

Lived at Limes Court this year for my first year at YSJ and my experiences overall have been satisfactory. The place itself is a bit dated but nothing too horrifying. The bedrooms are generally quite small but have a good amount of storage space and very large desks. Communal bathrooms are decent as there are two between 5 people, so there are no problems there. The main issue is the kitchen. There is nowhere near enough fridge and freezer space and the table does not comfortably fit 5 people, which is dissappointing considering it's the only communal area. Generally the place could do with a bit a TLC, e.g. new carpets and flooring, curtains and blinds throughout, new kitchen appliances but all in all isn't as bad as made out. It is far from uni (20 mins walk) although I haven't had that many problems with that, but it isn't ideal.

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.

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.
