When I was in elms (academic year 2017-18) I was paying £230/ week. Although the facilities were top standard, they were very overprice. Especially considering similar standards in University halls in mainland UK which offer much more reasonable prices.
Lovely social spaces, great kitchen and lovely rooms. Bathrooms are outdated though in BT9 and the beds aren’t the comfiest. The treehouse is great for studying and socialising and Elms isn’t far away from town at all. WiFi can be a bit poor but is okay most of the time.
Really modern and fancy. Kept really clean. Halls are sorted in categories based on the trees that grow around them: e.g. chestnut crescent, ash avenue giving the place a really homely feel. Free tea and coffee in the "Treehouse" as well as pool and table tennis. Only downside is that £4,000 a year is actually quite expensive for Belfast as Belfast is really cheap.
I once considered becoming an RA but at one point we just didn't have hot running water for showers or washing up. I know this problem effected other buildings near by but everytime it was reported they claimed to know nothing. This was never resolved. Once I walked down one of the other streets to find Steam from a water main bellowing into the air. Clearly being worked on as the road had to be dug up but the halls said nothing about it. Also night time fire alarms tests where they make you leave your room and stand outside. Just do them in the day time for Christ sake.
Had a fantastic time in uni halls. All good value for money however Oak did need to be done up a little. Great safe location and as you’re all in one enclosed area it’s great for socialising. En-suite rooms are perfect value.
Elms village was very tidy and well kept, larger flats made it possible to meet even more new people at the start of the year which was great. The treehouse communal area was perfect for meeting with friends in the evening time.
This is the place where fun is sucked from student life. Think prison, then add 10 nice cellmates. The students are all great but we live under the tyranical rule of the elms village enforcers inflicting punishment under the instruction of the 'all-hearing' international student who has complained. No one gets in past 11, so don't expect to bring friends back from a night out. At the weekends everyone from NI goes back home to their parents and elms dies. The cost is exorbitant! Paying £4000 to 'make friends' sounds like a tax on the socially inept.
