As an overall I have found my experience wonderful. It was the first time I left my family home and become a little independent. I love having my own room, as I previously shared it with my sister, and just enjoyed the privacy. The rooms aren't too small, but I have found to be the perfect size, as wel as including an en suite. The only downfall is that sometimes your flatmates can be noisy and when someone else doesnt clean the kitchen it unfortunately falls on others. Besides that it's awesome.

The location is convenient for access to campus and student shop but it is very expensive to do laundry. The social experience is very good, people are very nice and helpfu. Time to get things sorted is satisfactory.

The atmosphere on the campus is very lively. However there isn't until recently a common room for students to go together. This made it difficult to socialise. The bedrooms were standard, with en suite. However the whole building was often extremely hot with no way of cooling it down, especially in the kitchen and hallways. Also in the kitchen, the ovens would not cook food properly, the taps would produce dirty warm water, and there was no place for relaxed communal sitting.

Very modernised and clean. Well maintained, and also perfect and ideal in terms of distance from lectures.

Nice because all rooms had an ensuite however they were very small rooms with limited storage. Also the only social area we had was a kitchen, would have been nice to have some sofas! Was however good value for money and very close to the main building for lectures.

The wifi in the halls is terrible. It is unlikely that you are able to connect and even if you are the connection is very poor. The kitchen falls apart and the ovens do not work properly, taking twice as long as it should to cook food and then they are not cooked evenly. There is no area to relax in the kitchen area, unlike on the other campus and the table can't even fit all the residents around it. It is constantly warm in the rooms even without heating. The shower heads need to be replaced, which residents were promised over a month ago. The halls are in a good area in terms of being close to the uni facilities and the local shops. However the locak area is not very impressive. There is very little to do and what you can find often disappoints. Going to the forum is a risk for young girls as there are often older men around who act like predators towards them, and this makes people extremely uncomfortable. The shops are also lacking.
