Read Parkside Halls Reviews
listen, the last reviews are really poor, firstly i lived in parkside my first year of uni and my god it was unreal. you are left to do what you want, there are no rules its everything you imagine a uni halls to be and more. its not pretty its tacky but the beauty of these halls is that it embracess the tackyness. the security woman is lovely and if any faults with the room (I.E. bulbs going or anything, it was sorted the same day) best year of my life so far stopping here... not that i remember much :D
Intermittent wifi Too many people sharing a kitchen so your food goes walkies and you have no idea who the thief is Nosy f*cking wardens....never answer a knock on the door unless you are expecting a visitor cos they WILL grass you up for smoking or cooking in your room even though they pretend not to care either way
I would recommend any fresher to pick parkside halls because of the social life, you get to meet loads of people and make friends that will last through out university. It isn't a luxury place to live and has its problems with internet going down but so does everywhere around uni.
It's hella cheap but just a bit sh*t really. You can't escape the noise if you're wanting to get a peaceful sleep and the wardens who tell people to shut up end up losing their authority. There's so many people in one Dayroom that no one owns up to any mess and it's pretty much always a mess. The whole place still feels like it's a hospital and either needs knocking down and rebuilding or completely renovating, I'd like to be able to go to the toilet at night without feeling like I'm a mental patient walking down a cold hospital corridor!
