Rip off management

Good but has issues

"Good as had freedom (no RAs like in other halls) but when a pipe burst in a flat above and flooded the kitchen and corridor, very slow to fix situation and was left with a broken ceiling for 5 mon"- Anonymous

Love Disco!!

Safety - 4 Management - 3.5 Value - 3.5

I loved my year in Disco, like many I was placed here as Plymouth was my insurance choice but I am so happy I was! The best location, just off campus on the quieter side! Big building, flats are very sociable as flats are along corridors! Lots of flat pres and socialising! The kitchens and rooms are average/ good in my opinion! En suites are better than most as the shower has a basin and is not a wet room! If you are lucky enough to be high up on the south facing side the views are beautiful! Management could be better but this doesn't effect your time in Disco! The common room and study room are great spaces! In summary Disco is quite expensive but known for being one of the most sociable halls, practically on campus and well kept!

Almost perfect

I moved in as my insurance offer, which basically puts you into clearing accommodation wise, so I had to cough up the £129 a week for halls or try my luck privately. It's good quality living and the location is perfect. Getting things fixed can be difficult and expect to say goodbye to your deposit. Tuesday morning fire alarm testing sucks as well. That said I've made some great friends here, even if I'm a little poorer.

Overall great halls apart from the price and management.

the so called 'en suite' is entirely a plastic 'porta potty' esque construction, that is incredible difficult to clean and maintain. The Hoover and iron provided are terrible, the rooms are incredibly small and have single beds, though to some degree this was expected. The hallways smell awful and have stains on the wall and ceiling. If attending Plymouth university I would either recommend Francis drake or Astor house
