I am currently a first year student living in sketch house. I know sketch house looks a lot better than the others and better price however myself and many of the other students have had issues with the halls. First I did not have hot water for 3 months and i told the front desk multiply times and they just did nothing. I also had water pouring from my roof every time it rained and this was not fixed for many months as well. Maintenance men have on multiply occasions let them self's into my bed room while i was in the bathroom and asleep. The social life is awful, I would not recommend coming here if you are a freshers if you want the fresher nightlife go else where because the halls are not social there is not a community. The very first night was good however any other event that has been held no one attends. The social reps idea of a fun evening is "knitting night". Due to international students being prioritized for accommodation a lot of them come to sketch and due to cultural differences 90% of them don't like to go out.If you want to meet new people do not come to sketch because the only friends I've made at sketch are from my course, if you have visited you will see it's more of a quiet hotel than student accommodation. basically if you want really nice halls and not into going out these halls are perfect but if you want the freshers experience I would stay clear as people from my course from other halls (Will Wyatt and Manor Ash) have a better social life.

Do you know if any of the other UAL accommodations have a good social environment?
