Hi guys! If you want to study in Soton and are looking for accomodation I would completely not recommend Liberty Living! The members of reception are no helpful at all when you face problems with your flatmates and they cannot do much to help! The kitchen is completely dirty all the time, they do not clean their mess and either you clean it yourself or live in horrible conditions. Liberty living cannot do anything about it, not charge nor do anything to make them clean it or pay for cleaning it. The only thing they do is charge everyone and you have to pay for others mess! Also! Flatmates smoke in the kitchen, although it is not allowed and reception does nothing about it! They also cannot sort the noise issue out, say when one person is playing very very loud music in their flat!

Once again DO NOT go for Liberty Living!

I've known people in Orion's Point and they've always seemed happy enough. It sounds like you're problem is more with the flatmates you have than the accomodation itself, unlucky, but it's not long to the end of the year now and then you can move out. Chin up.

I had an amazing time at orions point last year. Are you in a flat allocated to Southampton uni students?

he kitchen is completely dirty all the time, they do not clean their mess and either you clean it yourself or live in horrible conditions
You do realise your living in self catered accommodation? It is not up to liberty living to clean the kitchen, its up to you and your flatmates. If you have a problem with cleanliness you have to take it up with them.

Noise is just one of those things you get in halls. People party, I was one of them :P.

I was there last year, it's fine, sounds like you need to talk to your flatmates about it, not reception.

That or stop being a whiney little douche.

I live their atm and absolutely love it. Earlier in the year one of my mates had an issue with a flatmate smoking in the flat and stealing food and reception set up meetings to sort it out between the flat. Reception are so good, the ladies that work there are lovely and always willing to help sort out any issues or queries. The security guards are also sound. With regards to noise, they do give out noise complaints although there isn't really a lot they can do if someone's being a **** about music but you'd get that anywhere. I personally would highly recommend liberty living to students staying in halls in future years.

The thread you're responding to is from 2011 - back when the hall was fairly new and not many southampton students lived there.

It's good to know that things have improved over the last 3 years.

Be wary of Liberty Living Leicteser who discrimates against students and charged me for damage a flatmate caused in the communcal area who was possibly high on weed. Also charges you for small 'marks' on communal walls and damage to things like a chair that didnt look damaged that noone thinks to check when moving in.
