Location is the only good thing about this accommodation. Management are awful and incredibly unprofessional. Had an argument with my flatmates and management told me I had to leave my flat, which I'd paid for, with no investigation and no grounds whatsoever to evict me, and then made me miss lectures to discuss the dispute. All communication (including rent payments) is done via a facebook page, so if you don't have/regularly check facebook then you won't receive any of this information.
The staff are lovely, very helpful and know which room to put you in depending on your personality! Unlike other accommodations where they put you wherever and don't really care as long as they are getting your money. Block one is the most convinient, it's the easiest to get to and has the best view especially if your higher up! The bedrooms are quite small and poky, but the living area makes up for it as they are very spacious and the decor is updated! I would say it's quite expensive, but that is down to the location, it's right on the waterfront opposite the library and 2 minute walk to university so very handy! I prefer this Accomodation over Pavilions, I don't know why so many people rave about Pavs as my experience there was not good at all especially with the patronising staff! 5* for Junxion, highly recommend!!
For student accommodation, it's not bad. I can certainly think of worse places. But it could be so much better. For example, my room is the smallest in the flat, yet I pay the same price! It can feel a bit lonely because there isn't much cohesion between the flats unless you know people. But the best part is the location which is nice. Most of the staff are friendly too, and having students as staff members is excellent. With some modernising and upgrades (to the wifi especially!) it really does have potential.
I moved into Junxion in my first year, and have now stayed for my second, one of the main reasons other then location being the staff and security in the building. You fell safe in this place, with the key card entrances all around the building, The staff are brilliant in Junxion, in our experience they will fix things very quickly when they are informed of any issues even minor ones. We have since moving in had a new cooker as our was not heating up well something they completely amended within a few hours of calling, this included taking the old cooker away and fitting in a new one for us. Staff are so friendly, helpful and welcoming. I had been told so many horror stories about people suffering living hell with flatmates the couldn't agree with. I was fortunate to move in with a group of people who have now become some of my closest friends at university.
The price is steep for what it is however, the location is perfect. Right across the road from the university library, SU and Tower Bar. There is a shop and a Chinese restaurant located just under the building - very handy if you don't want to travel far! (Also there is a Tesco Express across the road and a Toby carvery too!) It's a 5 minute walk to the city centre and the high street. The staff are absolutely lovely. I didn't mind paying the price when you have a 3/4 size bed, ensuite and the place is maintained by staff 24/7 so if you ever needed someone at anytime there's always someone there. CCTV ensuring everyone feels safe. The WiFi for my friends and I wasn't great but being across from the library it wasn't too much of a big deal when it came to work. Common room is absolutely brilliant, exactly what you'd expect in student digs. Your belongings are ensured whilst they're in your room within the price. The staff were quick dealing with queries and issues.
Good halls in a great, central location. Flats are nice and fairly modern but do vary in size and space but overall experience at the Junxion has been good, so easy to meet other people and staying again next year.
It's a really fantastic location, and it is within a stones throw from my building. Courtyard is good for socialising, and have been able to talk to people from a variety of courses there. A tad expensive, but worth it (plus the three quarter sized beds are an added bonus)
Considering how much I pay for this I think it could be a lot better, my flat isn't great, the inwards facing rooms will get absolutely no sleep and the paint and appliances were half destroyed when we got there.
For the amount your paying you're really just paying a lot for the location and the common room. A lot of the walls and items like the fridge and cooker are chipped and broken. The walls are paper thin so you will hear everyone partying at 3am, and all the cars and trains outside. But, it is so close to the university and does have a room to store your bikes and a wash room for clothes.
Not been the best! Damaged equipment in flat when moved in, wifi needs to be paid for you only get one free wired device! It costs £30 for the year for wifi! The staff aren't helpful apart from the night guards. There is a rule in the contract about being quiet between 11pm and 9am in the courtyard this is never enforced! The fire alarm is always being set off by other people in the early hours of the morning! The Hoover doesn't work but we are expected to clean we don't get a cleaner! We pay one of the highest rent and our electricity is capped and monitored if we go over we have to pay for it! In our checkout information is says we have to deep clean our rooms and flat and we get charged for stuff like limescale in the shower when I moved in it was not deep cleaned at all! My drain was blocked and I had to unpick it! Our TV is terrible and we only have one fridge between 6 people!
