This accommodation is a joke! Every year the price rises yet there is no maintenance work being carried out. The show flat looks amazing, however this is not what the other flats look like. In the common room the pool table and ping pong table are broken and have been for the past 2 years (that i know of). The staff are not helpful and are not good when a student is in need or struggling. 100% would not recommend it is not worth the money

Great Accommodation

Athena Hall is fantastic accommodation for the University students, the location is unmatchable as it is a 2 minute walk from all the necessities required as a university student with the waterfront building and library building only 2 minutes away. the location of a waterfront premises is something you dream about and to have it whilst being a university student is something that I don't think can be matched anywhere else in the country. In addition to this the management staff always try and do everything they can to make you feel at ease and solve any problems. Overall Athena is in my opinion one of the best student accommodations in the country.

Being situated on the marina waterfront, Athena Hall already takes pride of place as choice for future and current students alike. The ideal location towards the nightlife, the town centre, and university campus position Athena Hall in the ideal place for any student, whether new to the area or not.

Been here for 3 years

Quality of rooms - 5 Fun/Atmosphere - 2.5 Location - 5

I have been here for 3 years now..



Final year has been the best out of the three



Cons -



-The place is a little expensive

-Sometimes it can be a little noisy (But what student accommodation isn't?)



Pros -



-Internet has been upgraded to 100mb (most of the time I get 75mb)

-Office staff are friendly

-Maintenance has got way better over the years

-Location is perfect for uni (with the fact you can wake up 10 mins before lecture and still get there on time)

-Overall the place has improved over the 3 years.



The common room could be improved and the washing machines are not cheap but not expensive - as you can fit about 2 weeks of clothes in at a time.



I would recommend the place - especially if you get a gold room (by far the best for money)

DO NOT MOVE IN HERE

If this review makes even 1 person not move in to Athena Hall then it will be a success. THIS PLACE IS AWFUL. Do not believe any less.



The staff are the rudest people I have met. They do not care about students and even spread gossip about them. They will act friendly to begin with until you have a problem and then they turn real nasty. Security staff are nice though - shame the rest can't be like them.



The flats are awful. They do not clean them before you move in. My mattress smelt of urine, there were hairs in my shower and even skid marks down the toilet. When I asked staff to send a cleaner to my room, I simply got a "no". I had no drawers in my freezer and the oven kept tripping the electric out every time it was used. Not to mention how old and disgusting the furniture is.



And then there's the noise. You need some really decent ear defenders if you're going to even attempt to sleep here. People constantly set the fire alarms off and the staff make no attempts to stop it from happening.... they don't care. It's miracle if they don't go off at least once a night. The staff don't realise that by them being childish to students, they make more grief for themselves.



They say there is a "common room". It's ****. There is a tv that crashes every 10 seconds and a pool table that wobbles.



The washing facilities are awful too. Costs around £6 per wash which doesn't even clean your clothes.



Save your money and look for accommodation elsewhere. Not only will you save a FORTUNE monthly, you also won't be charged huge amounts of money at the end of your tenancy for things that were broken before you moved in.

Great location.

If you want sleepless nights

Cold showers

Mouldy rooms

Rude staff

Overpriced washing that needs rewashing so you look at spending £20 a time.

Doors and cctv that don't work.

The noise that's so loud but they do nothing about it

Really expensive rent

Poor slow internet

To be charged for everything when you move out

This is the accomadation for you, if not please think again! Don't book before its to late!

Good points, En-suite bathrooms



Bad points, Security doors don't work half the time, WAYYYYYYY overpriced, you will lose most if not all of your student finance on this place. Appliances are very temperamental. Management are friendly people but are so restricted on what they can do so nothing ever gets done.
