    Not quite enough information. Perhaps you could list the city or contact them directly?

    That said, only a third of your degree will likely be spent in halls, depending on the length of the course. Looking back, I would have looked at student accommodation for 2nd/3rd years more than I looked at the halls. You'll likely move out, so the surrounding area is of far greater importance. Most halls are bearable... It becomes a part of life and you adapt. I'm used to luxuries at home that I just don't have at university, and that's the same for many people. Don't let it put you off entirely.

    That said, Victoria Halls do look rather nice.

    If you have the option to go into university owned halls, then do so. At least then you will (a) be with other freshers, rather than a strange mix of internationals, postgrads and those who didn't get a place in uni halls, (b) if you don't like your flat you can move to other uni owned halls, and (c) if you drop out then you are not typically liable for the rest of the years rent.

    I'd be wary of booking space in any halls that are not yet finished - building projects are notorious for overrunning.

    Yeah, the Victoria halls at Coventry are far from complete. There was supposed to be a show room available in March, but it is due to open this September for the start of term. The weather has been crappy for them whilst constructing it though.

    I walk past it every so often, but I see the construction whilst walking to campus.
