Best place to live on campus. Right next to the library and shop and longest walk to lectures is 5 minutes at most. The rooms are big and the kitchens even bigger with a lot of storage space for everyone. There's enough bathrooms and great showers. Also Battersea are the best halls for social experience since so many people stay here and an easy walk to the club on campus

Living in Battersea was one of the best experiences, and everyone knew it was the best court to live in. Located in the centre of campus opposite the library, it was the most central court. Furthermore, there was 14 people per floor, and 4/5 floors per building, meaning you was guaranteed a good time. My building was refurbished last summer, meaning we was the first to live in the newly done flat - amazing for £99 per week! The only con was how loud it constantly was. There was noise pretty much 24/7. Coming from someone who socialised a lot - it was still pretty annoying! These included: - Drunk people singing / screaming every night of the week. - Lorries / garbage trucks every morning from 6am - 7am - Cathedral bells - Different floors having pre drinks if you wasn’t going out. I just dealt with it, as I knew I was in the best court!

Really convenient location and was close to everything. Cleaners were really nice and everything was replaced if accidentally broken. Everything you would need was provided, and the kitchens were nice. Also not that much money which is a plus (Band C)

It has a really good location,as there is only less than 5 mins walk to lecture hall.Sometimes, when there are party at night would be quite noisy but the window is good enough to block the noise. It also nears Simply fresh and library,therefore it is so convenient to live in this hall.The thing is there is only standard room in Battersea Court, which has no en-suite room only room with basin.

Prisons have better cells. The kitchen is smaller than my room and shared by 7. Even the corridors are slimmer than an anerexic midget’s arsehole.

Amazing location but with a band C sometimes bathrooms would get gross. More of a comment on who I was living with vs. actual uni accommodation. Overall decent sized rooms and adequate amount of showers, I would definitely recommend.

Overall, really enjoyed the experience of halls. Everyone is very friendly, cleaners are nice, social life is good and the rooms aren't half bad. The only downside is the stairs every day to floor 3 and the neighbours above are always really noisy. To add to this, we have also had problems with water as our taps break a lot and the door to the kitchen always slams which wakes everyone up. Anyway, without being too negative, the halls are close to the library, the shops and the campus club so this always makes life a lot easier. overall a very pleasant experience.

Everyone is really amazing. House mates are really nice and caring we all get along. The cleaning lady, sue, is really nice. She's always up for a chat always in a good mood she's really a breath of fresh air. The halls itself is really nice and cosy, has everything you need and is really close to the reception. If you have any problems you can report it to the reception and they sort it out as quickly as possible. The library and simply fresh is less than a minute walk away, it's really the perfect place to live

The location of battersea court is ideal it is right in the center of campus so it is easy to get anywhere. Also sharing with 13 other flat mates is good because you have a variety of people and it's very social. The problems are that you have to share bathrooms which isn't too bad as you have a cleaner who cleans them and my flat personally was on the fourth floor so it was a lot of exercise everyone you went up. Also you have personal wifi per room and my wifi did not stretch to the kitchen so I had to uses someone else's wifi when I was in the kitchen which was a bit of a pain.

The rooms are nice and spacious, and there is plenty of storage space in the wardrobe, above the wardrobe, under the bed and in the chest of drawers. Having three toilets and three showers is fine, I rarely see even two showers being used at the same time. There isn't enough fridge and freezer space. Two ovens are enough but only having one microwave is inconvenient. If people are in the corridors you can hear everything from your bedroom, but if they're in the kitchen you can't hear anything. The location is great for going to lectures.

The location is very good as it is close to many facilities that are used everyday success lecture buildings, the library, the laundry room and restaurants on campus. The social experience within my accommodation is very good as all of my flatmates get on really well. My room is a reasonable size and the bed is very comfortable.

The accomodation is in a brilliant location, right opposite the library as well as the local shop inside. It can be a bit noisy, especially at night after the campus club has shut, but the noise is worth the ideal location. This particular Court is band C, meaning a decent sized room with a sink. There are about 3 showers and toilets on each floor, although from experience there has not been an issue with people waiting for someone to finish. There is a lot of socials available for the students to get to know one another and have a good time

Good location, near student union, Library and shop. Rooms are decent size and a friendly social area. WiFi can be slow at times

Very good location right on campus and easy to get to lectures. 10 minute walk either way to town or Tesco for shopping which is very convenient. Only two negative comment can be made and that is that if you're on the top floor like me it can be hard to move things up there as and the other is that the cathedral bells can be noisy in the mornings.
