Excellent experience living here and you couldn't be in a better position, it's the only halls with two bus stops just to itself and just outside the door so even better! Perfect positioning, social space is amazing and up to date but no many people went down there until the football was on, plenty of girls there for the boys and plenty of people friendly enough to just enjoy life while your there, it goes too quickly!

The only good parts of these halls are the location and the wifi. I would NOT recommend these halls to anyone looking to study at BU. The rooms are so hot its unreal. The window needs to be open 24/7 and even that doesn't really help. With the window open, all you can hear is 2 building sites (which no one told me about) or drunk people screaming at 4am. The maintenance is inconsistent. Sometimes things get fixed quickly, other times they don't read what is actually wrong at it took 3 MONTHS (!) for our oven to actually be fixed. It's like a prison cell. The bed is super uncomfortable. If you have mental health issues do not choose this accommodation, you can see why over 40% of BU students admitted to having mental health issues in the first year of study.

This student accommodation is appalling, they advertise that there is a kitchen and ipads in the common room, but you are not aloud to use the kitchen and the ipads do not work, this is false advertising and a scam. When i first moved in, in the kitchen was the microwave, this microwave had paint peeling on the inside which caused rust to fall into our food; it took two months for us to get a new one, the oven has had no temperature markings on it since we've moved in after reporting it multiple times and there is a hole in the front of the fridge. The windows sometimes get jammed and stuck open and we have to wait weeks or months before it gets fixed as well as the one in the bedrooms which also leaks allowing my entire desk and the electronics on them to get soaking wet. The laundry room is terrible, no matter what you do, the washing machine's door does not open when its finished and it takes at least 2-3 times to dry the clothes in the drying machine; which costs £2.20. Disgraceful

When I started Lyme we had no wifi for a month, which sucked. I know they've sorted that all out now though. It also gets extremely hot on the top floors, so bring a fan with you, by the time you get to Bournemouth they'll probably be sold out everywhere. You don't need to buy wristbands for events in advance, no matter what anyone tells you, you can decide when you get there when you can actually see what other people are doing. No TV aerial sockets, so pack a mobile aerial if you plan to watch anything.

On arrival the kitchen was not clean, Fridge was disgusting had to clean as well as the freezer, Oven again had to be cleaned. Table was broken in the kitchen area. Looked like the only thing which was cleaned was he floor!!! Curtains were not even hanging right looks like part of the rod had come down as well an not enough clips, Everywhere looked like it could do with painting. No bowl or plug in the sink and appears not to have the basics you would expect in a self contained kitchen ie kettle, toaster. Bedrooms need a good lick of paint on the walls, bathroom again looked it had not been cleaned the ceiling had brown patches on brown. For the amount we paid deposit and a month rent in advance I expected a higher standard!!! However good location.

The bedrooms were a good size, and the kitchen space was also not too bad, however, the amount of times the fire alarm went off was ridiculous! Some of the staff that worked there were nice but some of the others weren't. The 2 ladies doing the end of year inspection on my floor had broken one of my dishes and didn't even apologise! The common room was big but there really wasn't much to do.

Rubbish internet. Good sized room and en-suite. No cleaner for the communal areas in each flat. No hoover for each flat. Rubbish washing machines and tumble dryers. Modern common room on ground floor.
