The location is one of the best out of all of the accommodation option available for the university of Birmingham with many shops in walking, pubs and takeaways in very close walk distance. It’s also a 5 minute walk into the university which is great. The facilities are acceptable and partly the reason for this review getting 4 stars out of 5, as all year my shower has not been working properly and I was told in the first day that ‘I should be lucky that it’s working at all as some other students showers weren’t working at all’. This is why I’ve not felt comfortable to ask for it to be fixed again. The walls are paper thin and if you have an overly loud, attention-seeking flat mate living in the room next to you (like I have had), then you’ll find that it’s really hard to get anything done. The room in general, however, has a lot of storage space - more than I needed - and is bigger than I had expected which is great! I live in Jarratt Hall and we have a lot of events that the reps put on which is a fun way to socialise with everyone. As well as this, there’s the Jarratt Hall lounge which everyone is always welcome in and is a great place to socialise!
