I'm in my second year at McMillan and it has not been good. Last year my room was freezing for the whole of winter to the point I basically had to stay in bed almost all the time. My grandma ended up having to buy me a heater cause they couldn't fix it and refused to get a new one. This year, I'm living with my partner. Our first room as a double, which was nice until it had a cockroach in it. They didn't fumigate it and didn't find us other accommodation for a week. The room they eventually found us is designed for one person and there is not enough room for both of us. There is one wardrobe and as we're both music students, we have a lot of instruments that do not fit in the room. The new room also has leaky windows, mold in the bathroom and under windows and flies coming through the vent in the bathroom. Recently, there was a stabbing on our floor which was for the most part poorly dealt with and my partner (who was in our flat at the time) was not told if/when it was safe to leave
Nice place met good friends, lived there 3 years
Mcmillan student village is one of the worst. I was living in a studio and it so small alao the equipment are outdated
Really good student halls, there is always someone available to help and support us if needs be. The Residents Assistants are really friendly as supportive and are always arranging events for us students to go to. I enjoy the atmosphere and there are lots of shops really closeby and the high street and university is a short walk away!
I stayed there for almost a year. The beds are absolutely rubbish made out of cardboard or something and hinges broken. If you share a flat good luck with no sleep, smoking infront of main doors and inside the flat. Parties and noise till morning I had so many sleepless nights. Some of the staff members are really nice and some are rude (mostly females). One thing kept me paranoid is the staff and RA have keys to your flat and once someone open my door mistakenly while I was inside. They should knock before opening the doors. Lifts are good, internet is ok not great. And never had trouble with hot water. Still lot of things to improve.
I have been contacting the village since the past month to get an answer from them. I have not heard anything back from them yet and the only thing I am told is - "the financial team is working on it. We have not heard back from the finance team. It is being escalated". I get the same answer every time I call. There is no information regarding my deposit and the village team is being extremely unhelpful with this situation.
I didn't stay here for long due to such an awful experience. If you want to go to student halls to actually complete a university course DO NOT STAY HERE. The staff are poor with dealing with noise complaints that kept me up at 5am, I complained many times about my flat mates being loud during online classes and at the early hours of the morning. Even after getting management involved nothing was properly dealt with and then they told my university I had made no complaints. Noise is a but problem here and because of this, staff don't deal with any of it even though it's in the contract to provide a quiet living space. It's a shame experience is so awful here as it is in a good location for a good price but if you're a Ravensbourne student you're better off with private accomodation or Scape.
Staff are great and friendly and some of the security, great to meet new people although socially the social area lacks enjoyment for students especially not being able to bring alcohol inside and the fact it closes at 11pm. The internet is horrific and literally doesn’t work what so ever, a lot of maintenance needs doing to the rooms like painting and in my room especially there’s a crack going all the way along my ceiling. Maintenance happens from 7-9am meaning drilling all morning so don’t expect a break or a lie in and it goes on for hours. Apart from the few staff which are lovely to speak too and the odd few friends you’ll make here in the dorms, for the money you’re paying its far from worth it, worst decision I’ve made considering the price I’m paying to live here. Would highly recommend going to a different accommodation or room sharing, (room sharing) is what I’m doing next year.
Awful, useless, rude staff. Our flat full-length mirror was stolen by them. They often loose your mail. Dirty bathrooms. Fridge in rooms don’t work. Ripped up carpet in hallways. Missing roof panels in hallways. Cleaners don’t actually clean your kitchen. Nights in prison would be better. I would highly recommend house-sharing. Halls is only good for socialising. I’m shocked that the reception staff haven’t been sacked yet. If I could relive first year again, I would 100% avoid McMillan Student Village.
I've stayed on dark alleys on a night out more homely than this place. Genuinely felt like a prison and for no less than than 2,200 quid. Granted the price of living in London is hefty but I currently live in a lovely 3 bedroom flat further down the road and it's cheaper than McMillan and has no risk of stabbings outside the front gate.
Hardly ever hot water, complaints take weeks to be fixed/ acknowledged, staff have a 'im better then you' feel, wifi is awful. the cleaning staff however are very nice and do an amazing job
Tiny, broken vacuums, laundry that will destroy every single cloth you have and super expensive for what they offer. Their rooms leak, are broken and when I first arrives it was as filthy as a trash machine.
Good location(less than 10 min walk to school) Nice price(check official website) However noise is a critical problem for student living in the student village. Worst case i experience was rock band practice held inside the kitchen during 01:00 AM. Yes, i mean AM. Furthermore, because McMillian is a student village mainly provide for year 1 student, don't expect they'll have enough common scene. There were multiple case that student put eggs into microwave and causing explosion or fire.
COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY! do not bother paying for this Accommodation. Rooms are inadequate , cleaning is rarely done properly . Maintenance requests take over a week-2 weeks to be sorted . The staff on McMillan reception are EXTREMELY rude (very bad attitudes!) and unhelpful ; some speak very poor English which doesn’t help. The mail receiving system is a complete failure of a system often resulting in lost mail . The WiFi is very slow and cuts out rather frequently . The bathroom is a ridiculous size and the water floods the entire floor after showering , a recipe for accidents! The kitchen fridge is about big enough for one person with a very small appetite! Inadequate for six people! The boiler is often switched off, meaning freezing cold showers! The cluster flats feel isolated due to no social area except the poorly maintained kitchen. The lifts often break the alarm goes off at least three times a week.Only half of the washing machines work, so be prepared to waste a lot of Daz!
This was honestly the worst year of my life. The rooms are all dirty and bashed up (completely not worth the £198.50 a week they charge). When complaints were made to staff absolutely nothing was done and I was made to feel like my requests were ridiculous and stupid. Repairs can be requested but don't expect them to be carried out - it took them 7 months to fix my kitchen tap. Noise is ridiculous and when you call security to complain they don't answer. I didn't live there for a large portion of the last term because things got ridiculously stupid and it wasn't worth the lack of sleep/study power in the end! Don't stay here.
The room was filthy, the carpet had dried food and juices everywhere, the walls were dirty and the windows open only 10 cm and fresh air cannot come in or the house to dry up if you use water and soap (expl. Clean the bathroom, dry clothes). The management was helful but not that willing to resolve issues such as (in my room) the toilet paper hanger was broken and after complaining to the management im still waiting for it to be fixed by itself.... it is unacceptable to pay 750-800€ per month for this.
Do not choose these halls, I have had the worst year of my life here. The showers do not work, the internet does not work, the staff constantly break the rules by entering rooms without prior notice, about half of the washing machines work at any given time, it is MEGA EXPENSIVE compared with the alternatives.... I could go on but you probably already get the picture.
Have to pay for the wifi, which is rubbish if you have friends over as they can't just log in. There are some issues with maintenance
It is a little bite damaged and noisy (street side). But it is a very good flat at London...
I really like my room and the kitchen, the shower is great (when there is hot water running) I was however disappointed that whenever I need to use the internet (for research or for browsing) that I have to sit on my desk because it's a wired connection rather than WiFi. Socially, it depends on what kind of a person you are, there are a lot of people here who already have friends and I was placed with second and third years and without knowing anyone and being the type of person who is not an extrovert nor an introvert being in large crowds of people, socialising and trying to make friends without reason (just introducing myself randomly) is something that does not come naturally - however if there was a specific reason for the social activity (a event where you are required to sit down and talk to people one on one) I find much easier, no events at the halls have been put on like this
fire alarm would go off all night, very noisy and often the hot water would not work. Post also got lost a lot. good thinks are the rooms are a good size and you get your own loo. its standard for london accomodation but if you share with friends you could get a much nicer flat or house for the same price. There is a social space to meet people are regular events if you feel like making new friends. all in all its fine for first year but could be better.
