Having lived in Brunel for 2 years out of my 3 whilst at UCLan I can safely say I wouldn't have wanted to live anywhere else.



These other reviews are quite frankly ridiculous.



Yes I admit there are issues with maintenance but they are sorted quickly and as efficiently as possible - never did I have any issues with that. (I think its fairly safe to say that any student accommodation unless its a new build is going to have some issues!)



I always felt safe in Brunel and made some fantastic friends, I lived in a studio flat in the Annex both years and loved how peaceful it was.



The comments about internet are also ridiculous - the wifi in my 1st year at Brunel was admittedly not great. But in my final year they updated it and it worked amazingly! I was always watching Netflix and never had an issue.



There is a small gym that (although I never used or actually even went into) I thought was an amazing addition.



The management team are great, and people need to get over the issues with post. Seriously, like be grateful that there is always someone there to sign for parcels for you! You certainly wouldn't get that everywhere.



Finally, there isn't a pass system anymore for overnight guests and whoever said that it was 'degrading' for a 21 year old to have to ask for a pass for someone else to stay over- you wouldn't have been saying that if you had been robbed by someone random who had just wandered in not having a pass!!! Regardless, the system went at the end of my last year there.



I still follow them on facebook and they actually look like they're also having a massive overhaul and redecorate so I'm a little gutted I've left! All in all I'd recommend Brunel any day of the week.

Pretty good location as you are in city centre location for the shopping centres pubs and clubs ect also you are right behind aldi which is only a short walk to do your shopping.



Common room is pretty decent with sky television, sofas, pool table vending machines and dartboard which has glass doors leading into the courtyard or if you live in a studio in a seperate building then then this door is quite ideal for you rather than walk around.

The rooms are a decent size and pretty clean but Always have your key on you because your door slams and locks behind you (no latch).

Guards are quite helpful and pretty friendly.

There was a overnight pass system where you had to ask the manager between 9-5 but if not your friends had to be out by 11 but now that rule has been scrapped. And guests can come and go as they please but must be met at reception, but yeah overall a good ideal place.

These halls are possibly the worst you could come across. The rooms are crappy and not well looked after ; when I moved in, my room was dirty, there was no chair at the desk, my light didn't work, the towel rail was falling off and I had no headboard on my bed.

I'm moving out next week, I still have no headboard, the towel rail is still falling off and the lightbb needs replacing at least once a month.



I agree with the other reviewer, it's like a prison here. The lack of freedom with guests is ridiculous- having to apply for a pass for your partner to stay with you overnight when you're 21 is degrading.

I also agree that the security guards are arsey and extremely unhelpful to the point of being intimidating. The environment is very ladish and o wouldn't recommend it for a female as one of the security guards is creepy and pervy.



Honestly, it's depressing living here. The walls are paper thin, the water isn't always hot and it really does feel like a prison. Please explore other halls before settling on Brunel Court.

Brunel Court = Last Resort

1.5

Quality of rooms - 3.5 Fun/Atmosphere - 1 Location - 3

i moved into Brunel for my first year back in September.

when i moved in the room was quite big and the kitchen was decent. However the beds are awful and my room had mould and damages everywhere.

The overall perception of the halls is that it feels like you live in a TravelLodge. the common room has Sky TV and a couple of sofas with vending machines and pool table and darts, with patio doors that go out into a garden area. this doesn't get used very often though.

the doors to your room have slammers on then with no latch so if you leave your room without your key, you are screwed, and the security get really arsey.

the security guards are awful. it doesn't seem like they re bothered about anything, they are reluctant to help anyone out, and you are not aloud to bring any friends, relatives, etc etc back to the halls past 11pm unless you have a pass.

the internet is terrible. you have to sign up to a third party company to access the internet, and you are only aloud 4 devices on the system. this is done my registering the device's MAC address, which can be a faff.

the post is sent to the office downstairs where you can only ask for the manager to give it to you. please note the manager is only there 9-5.

there is also no way of knowing who you are going to be staying with or trying to pick who you stay with, as some other halls do.

I hat living here, it feels like a prison sometimes and if i hadn't have paid upfront for this move, i would of moved out along time ago.

please think very carefully before choosing this, and i would recommend this to be the last resort.
