Not bad but extremely expensive for what you get, but that’s the same throughout York... Decent enough but had a few problems with silverfish (accidentally brought a few back with me when I moved out too...) - but I reported the problem through their online system and the next day someone came round to spray the room. They were always very quick to solve problem like gone out lights and blocked plug holes. Alcuin staff were amazing too - so helpful and made sure everyone felt at home!!! Close to campus too so very convenient!
Such a disappointment. Our rooms are big but extremely run down (I am in an older block), and the whole place just feels like a retirement home. I was only fortunate that my housemates are friendly! I have not spoken to anyone from any other houses or flats in Alcuin. Go for Derwent! It's not really any worse, it's far cheaper, and you're much more likely to enjoy your first year!
Nice size rooms that look nice, good location close to classes. Only have 1 common room (JCR) which is tiny and dingy with nothing good to do inside. Lots of silverfish in my room (30 in a month). To say we're paying £6k a year for a shoebox room and tiny ensuite you'd expect it to be free of silverfish.
