Positive Reviews


Clean and comfortable accommodation.

This is campus accommodation, so it is fairly frill free. The basics are all here though and good. It's up to you to keep your own area clean. Communal spaces are cleaned once a fortnight. It certainly is a welcome alternative to the very expensive hotels in the city and of course, you have more independence and flexibility … because you aren't tied to expensive hotel meals and serving times.


Nice area and a convenient location.

If you are here for the Festival, most of the venues are within walking distance - so no costly taxis or hanging around waiting for public transport. The area itself is very pleasant with The Meadows offering acres of pleasant outdoor greenery.


Staff members are very helpful.

You can't really fault the members of staff. Well used to dealing with the demands of students, they are quick to respond to your query or problem.

Negative Reviews


Needs a bit of a revamp.

Furniture is a bit grubby and could do with a good clean. TV programmes are mostly rubbish, but there's no TV here … and you really miss it!


Getting up close.

Large single beds are optimistically passed off as doubles. Also … Spring has come early … in the form of the ones that stick through the bed.


Highly priced.

The cost doesn't compare favourably with that of other campus accommodation. Lots of things missing: no TV, no parking and not even any soap/toiletries. No frills? … dead right! There's a gravel path (*Who dreamed that one up?) which is very noisy late at night and the location is not well identified and is difficult to find.
