The halls are well connected to bus stops on either sides and has a 24hr service stop, LIDL closeby, laundromat located in some halls along the complex makes it easy, kitchens for 10 people is big enough, but sometimes not all burners work, well maintained bathrooms and halls, lift for all floors. Only way the kitchen looks dirty is from some bad flatmates. Otherwise all good. Safe and clean and well lit.

The rooms are just the right size and they heat up pretty quickly as well. However,heating is controlled so you can't turn it on any time you want ex past midnight. Kitchen is decent and cleaners come every weekday. The stoves are a bit old and notnideal for baking but other than that the work alright. Sufficient cupboard space, but fridge space can cause a bit a a tetris game...

Room is pretty spacious than other complex's but cost more of course - but nothing that isn't affordable. The en suite is very decent, working shower with sliding curtain, toilet, sink, and mirror with a warm light above - perfect for going to the loo at night! The hall I was placed in exactly was Michael Bevis which had the laundry room jusy below - Best thing ever! No need to walk a thousand miles to another building to pick up and drag your clothes. A student store is literally 1 min away from the building which has offers cheaper than costcutters. Which brings me to the shops available on campus; HSBC (closes @ 5), subway (24 hours) , costcutters(closes @ 11), chemist(closes @ 5), and huge canteen with different cuisine each day, with izzi's pizza that closes around 5 (not zizzi - izzi). The social experience is like any other, luckily I was placed with my friends but you can get the usual individuals who don't talk much or socialise. Some things could be better, like the maintenance time. Can take forever sometimes for an oven to be fixed for example, even after you've sent 10 requests. But nevertheless, a pretty good facility.

One of the best complexes on campus, new buildings, new furniture and very quiet and clean especially in the flat. The kitchen is big enough for all the students to use. The only slight problem would be the fridge space ( sometimes one shelf is not enough ). Since isambard is a new Complex, instead of using a normal key; there’s a card key ie, one card that gives you access to everything. Bathroom is small but good enough for a university room.

Nice and spacious, better than my last hall everyone is friendly and welcoming the cleaners are nice room is clean bathroom is good for one person could be more social space but it is nice outside. Get along well with flatmates. Kitchen is always free to use and spacious however there could be more fridge space. Lots of shelves and drawers in my room to put all my things so everything stays tidy. Big window to look out from it is a nice size.

The room size is perfect so spacious, the bathroom is a bit small but that is in comparasion to the room. Depending on whether or not you pick your flat mates but the kitchen can be awful and cleaners don’t always do much. But i would recommend isambard

Close to the centre of campus and close to Lidl for cheap food. The price is expensive for what you get
