I booked this accommodation for my 2nd year of study because it offers air conditioning and a television in the room for an affordable price. However, the air conditioning is always broken and the bedroom gets very hot and humid in the spring/summer time it is unbearable. I file a maintenance request every 2 weeks to fix the air conditioning but there is no response for many months. The television is also broken, I am unable to connect and the maintenance team does not fix it.When I first moved into the room it was not clean. There are stains on the window and closet and I found toothpicks on my bed mattress.I rate this student halls 2 stars because the reception staff are very friendly and they host many events. Other than that, there are little benefits to living here.

I visited the accommodation this week and everything was very good. I will be moving in in September. I really hope there is a luggage storage space service so that I can have a place to put my luggage before I go back to my country for the summer vacation in May. , and can check in quickly and conveniently after returning to the UK.🙏🏼

The place is quite good and safe to live in with good proximity to the city centre and university. Feel at home atmosphere and good facilities. However the maintenance is very poor, the aircon never works and you have to chase behind the facility managers with no luck! No value for the money you pay and they don’t even provide a proper escalation matrix to log your issues. Sending mails and lodging complaints are of no use. When you pay a premium, the service delivered should be prompt and proper. The management is pathetic!I’ve been escalating on fixing my aircon for past 3 months and it’s still not looked into or even considered.
