Student Review: 1.3 /5
By member969262 On 31st May 22

UPDATE 31/5/22: I am still waiting for my refund from the New Orient House after having found a replacement tenant and having moved out months ago. Their team has been exhaustingly unresponsive and incredibly rude and unhelpful. ---- Have had the worst experience with the New Orient House! They are so unresponsive and absolutely the worst to deal with. My room was incredibly dirty when I arrived and no Covid protocols were followed. So much so that I had to move out the next day. Their staff and the whole Fresh Living management are awful to deal with and drag on the simplest of processes for ages. I am still waiting for my refund after months of having moved out (move out on 02/10/21). Definitely do NOT recommend it. You can find better housing with Urbanest or Victoria Halls in Kings Cross.

New Orient House is a scam. Multiple tenants personal information and bank data has been leaked by a member of Fresh. This is illegal and also they have breached the tenancy agreement due to unsafe construction and lack of security. This has caused breaking and entering by members of the public. I could not imagine any accommodation being any worse. In addition, the previous receptionist asked people to leave good reviews so many are fake. DO NOT live here.

The circumstance is quiet and beautiful, but the transport is not convenient enough for me. There is only an Overground Station with no Underground Station. The location is far from Chinatown, so many Chinese restaurants are not able to deliver.

Although the life of studying abroad was difficult for me during the epidemic, I am still very happy to live in the new orient house. 1. The location is very quiet, located in a wealthy area. Although there is a certain distance from the empire, the quality of life here completely exceeds the value of the cost of accommodation. 2. During the epidemic, I didn't have many social activities except with my schoolmates, but the dormitory administrators Anna and Paula can always give me some encouragement and suggestions. When I first arrived here, I felt very confused. They were very serious about helping me arrange my life. And there have been several times when I came back from school late, Anna or Paula will always communicate with me about the problems I encountered recently. I was really happy to be able to chat with her. 3. There are no mice here, it should be a very important 4.through Anna's introduction, I made many new friends. It is the most precious thing during the epidemic.

staff are hardly ever there; even though they are supposed to be there at least 8.00-16.00 on weekdays, but they are not which makes it very difficult to get parcels once they have been delivered if you are not in at midday. When I arrived I was told there would be freshers events in a couple weeks then never told anything more about them. I don't know the other students in my flat as we never bump into each other, and are all at different unis. I did book my room when it was at a discount and compared to other halls it is great value, especially considering the location and that it has recently been refurbished.

This is for flatt Road not Harris, the search couldn't find it My accommodation was a shared house on flatt Road . It had 2 bathrooms. One upstairs and one downstairs. I lived with 4 other girls. There was no social room and living area of the house was converted to a bedroom so we often had the social events in someone's room but it wasn't ideal. Being in a house with all girls we did have a lot of falling outs but we were allowed to move if it wasn't working out or if we didn't feel like we belonged there. Thecommunal areas of the house were cleaned every day except weekends and twice a week our rooms were cleaned. Our laundry was done for us once a week. Flatt Road was a row of houses away from the main building of the University but only a short walk this meant it was away from the noise of the social bar on a Wednesday night and was a quite area to live in. However some of the houses did like to hang out together and we had camp fire nights and it was a very family like feeling

Very nice area. But Building infested with vermin. No night staff (staff are present from 9-4 on weekdays, during holiday there are NO staff present for duration of holiday), poor security, no cctv except on the ground floor. Site manager and handyman both smoke like chimneys. Site manager lied to my face several times because he couldn't be bothered to do something I'd requested. Very overpriced accommodation, could be excused with "Oh but it's Central London", if anything worked that is. Lifts are always breaking down and have no lights in them. Kitchen appliances are broken in most flats according to what I can tell. Mine had a broken oven and a broken dishwasher, and the heater in my room would automatically turn itself off every 10 minutes. Social events for students are few and far between, and are on the whole pretty pathetic and patronising. The pipes need to be looked at. The water that comes from the taps is disgusting. Bottled water is a must if living here.
