New. Near to all lectures, library and students union. Good facilities. Good sized room although room is next to the kitchen so very noisy and can be hard to work

The student village was really well planned out. It was split into 4 courts and each had their own colour and sense of community. The halls themselves had all of the necessary amenities and also invluded en suites in each room. Each flat had 5-6 rooms which were nicely positioned so that you could all feel included. The kitchen/lounge was perfect for socialising and the massive windows let you see others busying about their day with their own flat. It was perfect for making friends and the rooms were a perfect size to have your own space.

The location is very lively full of students looking for a right laugh. The rooms are very basic but lovely. The facilities are very helpful and easily accessible.

Room is really nice and spacious, really nice natural light. Bathroom is good and does what it needs to do though the water doesn't always drain very fast in the shower. Easy to get to lectures, really easy to get to the shops and close the be able to get busses as well.

I LOVED uwe’s Student village. I lived in Breacon court on Frenchay campus and it was the best year of my life. The halls are so modern and clean and the rooms are a really good size, as well as this, it’s really safe and secure. The atmosphere is great and I loved living somewhere I was surrounded by friends. I would do my first year over and over if I could and living in halls made it! There’s a great shop in the student village as well as being very close to the sports centre but also close to lectures and the main hub but far enough away that you don’t feel like you’re living in the middle of where you learn! BEST UNI EVER.

Location good due to being on campus however at least 30 minutes bus ride from any activity/town centre. No common areas except for smoking huts, encouraging smoking. Lounge areas uncomfortable and not homely discouraging social interaction because it’s comfier and nicer to be in your room.

Spacious communal area. Reliable staff to repair any inconveniences to the flat, good sized room with ensuite. Close to supermarket and other shops as well as restaurants. Good internet connection, even with multiple devices, only a few clitches in different buildings. Campus offered a lot of useful facilities including a shop and Cafés. Quite expensive.

I found the halls clean and welcoming. The facilities within the grounds were great. However, the size of the bedroom was too small, considering the rent was extortionate. It was a good location as it was on site and meant getting to lectures was do-able but I would have much rather paid less and been in different location as so I had more funding throughout my first year. Unfortunately, these cheaper places were already booked up and this meant I had no other choice.

The location of halls is perfect. It has a 10 minute walk to Asda, Sainsbury’s, McDonald’s and Nando’s. Amazing social experience, easy to meet people. My room was small with an on-suite it was actually pretty nice for student halls

Was so fun, so many people to meet and the best introduction to uni The only problem was paying for washing, but there were tumble dryers

Good room size with wet room, laundry facilities are clean but costly. Communal areas are spacious with two large fridges and ovens between 6.

Really good halls to live in! Just a short distance away from the students union and as they’re on campus everyrhing is within walking reach! Really close to a shop and the campus gym too! Easy access to town as there’s the UWE express that goes directly to town. Ensuite is a great touch! Only issues are the single beds and no tv unlike wallscourt

Good location if you want to go to lectures but horrific for actually going out and doing anything. A rip off as well, the room is cold with a single bed. And the ensuite is just a wet room so the shower leaks all over the floor into the room and grows mold.

Literally the biggest rip off, you are paying more expensive than in the city and you get a cold single bed bedroom. There is an ensuite but it’s more of a wet room, so when you have a shower it floods the bathroom. Mine went under the walls and floor and started growing mold in my room. They are constantly coming in to fix new things, as something always seems to be broken. The WiFi also does not work that well and most people just end up using their data. My friend is in the city (fusion tower) and paying £100 a month less and has a modern new built double bed bedroom with a proper ensuite with a shower. Would not recommend student village to anyone.

Good sized rooms and modern facilities, plenty of space for 6 people. Good socials and easy to hold pre drinks before a night out. Social layout to flat, however you can hear everything that goes on in the corridor of the flat.

The hall is just a stone's throw from the university. The staff are polite and helpful. The accommodation also has regular maintenance and the room itself is comfortable and homely. The accommodation services give out treats during special occasions as well as the occasional freebie here and then.

The halls in student village are really good and everyone is really friendly. Its nice that there is lota of students around as then there is always something to do. The bedrooms are all have the same nice layout and all have a personal bathroom which is great too.

I loved having my own shower and not sharing, the location was really good and rooms were a nice size. However I would’ve liked a better bed and maybe cheaper as it was so expensive

Good size for the kitchen and communal areas, and the en suite makes life easier, however I have found the security to be a nuisance and the price of the accommodation is high.

The social life of living on campus was a dream, there’s no experience like being 100 steps from your best friends or people you can hang out with. Living in halls is something everyone should experience because it changes the way you see people and life. I have a lot of stuff so my room was a bit small for me but you have your own space with your own bathroom and it’s a great start to moving away from home.

Great location as you are right next to the university lectures theatres, however, for a night out it does take some planning and a short journey on a bus into town.

Hot water in my bathroom never works, shower curtains are horrible and my heating doesn't work. However lovely location close to lectures and gym and really good atmosphere during freshers

The facilities are perfect 2 hob/ovens and ensuite rooms with showers. Rooms are pretty sound proof minimal noise gets through from other rooms. Only improvement for me would be the beds, not overly comfy and would preferably be double. The WiFi is also severely lacking if more than one person is using it.
