After visiting most of the halls at dmu most are good so price is the obvious deciding factor, the university owned halls seem to be better maintained and kept although they are run more strictly with more rules and the staff are very keen to enforce the rules. Newarke point was the only hall I though was in particularly bad nick it looked like it needed refurbishing quite badly. Interestingly at first DMU only advertise private halls that cost more than there own where as there are a number such as oxford court which are cheeper. On a final not ensuite bathrooms are not all they are cracked up to be shared ones are often better than cramped ensuites.×
The guest lectures, I've had some really interesting and amazing ones this year which have helped alot with my studies!Report
