Good points: - Really close to the Campus Heart Bad Points: - The neighborhood consists of children who love to p*ss off residents - Security is lax, front door was broken for the longest time (initially) - Social spaces are severely limited in both facilities and proportion with the volume of residents - StudentCom (WiFi) is consistently slow/down - Heating is a joke, irregular schedule and no control - Good luck if you're on the ground floor and next to the entrance, can't open your window without smokers (constantly) being there - Don't know if there's surveillance (doubt it) In my opinion, not worth the money

Broken into, security is terrible, dirty, loud, rats etc. Common room tiny and most the time locked, complained about cleanliness as bin store locked and recieved an email regarding it being our duty and they are only paid to clean communal areas (which are always locked, which is why I sent an email as I was confused as to what they are paid for). Not work nearly 100 pounds a week, awful management, but they can exploit for being students

Brilliant place to live, I've enjoyed every second since I started uni in September. Few problems when I moved in, but all were sorted quickly by the management team.

It's alright but definitely not worth £96 a week. The facilities are not that clean, I refused to use the kitching since it was visbly dirty, If you're wanting to stay here for anything other than the location then this is not the place for you.

Wouldn't recommend Woodland Halls to anyone. I cannot believe how much the rent is for the standard of the accommodation. Rooms are very small, it's very dated, kitchen and communal areas are not cleaned that we'll by cleaners. Local kids are annoying.

Overall the hall isn't exactly terrible however, a number of things are less than adequate. For example most problems with the hall are rarely dealt with quickly, some not dealt with at all. Cleaners rarely clean, simply take a bin bag out of the kitchens when they come. The common room is entirely too small for the amount of people in the hall, roughly a 3 by 4 meter room with 2 sofas between 36 people in the hall. The facilities like the showers tend to be rather temperamental as to whether they work properly also.

cleaners can be sloppy sometimes and the floor in common areas is very sticky 100% of the time. The common room is tiny and their is only one for a full hall which is difficult.

Sooooo expensive!! I did pay for the luxury of an ensuit - but still look back and question if it was worth the money for my TINY room. It was a little bit noisy on the morning as it is based beside the car part to the uni on campus - really close to all lectures because you're living on campus!! The cleaners need to reevaluate their job titles. It was only occasionally mopped and the bin bags were taken out once a week. There was a communal bin for all of the 7 halls to remove their own rubbish - but why should we? We paid more for that service!! If I could give common room/ social spaces a zero, I would. We had a small shared kitchen. 6 people to one kitchen, but only 3 stools for the bench which was screwed to the wall. Other that that there was supposed to be a common room which was no bigger than the size of one room, which was shared between 36 people!! No furniture. No nothing in it. Pre drinks were rarely held at woodlands because of the lack of space...
