The staff were very approachable and helpful. They arranged for a taxi to pick us up from the airport and then back again at the end of our stay. The room was very good with comfortable furniture and the bed was comfortable too. We would definitely stay here again.
recommend for price and others service like pool, tennis and jogging track

If you are planning on staying here to study as I was, DO NOT DO IT. The pool area which is directly outside of the apartments are open to the public and used daily as a local kids club. Kids running outside the rooms whilst wet making the floor slippery and unsafe, kicking balls into residence windows, playing hide and seek INSIDE the apartments as there are no locks on the front doors, purposely splashing the residents or kicking their ball at residents. All whilst the parents sit back and laugh and watch. And staff do nothing.
Apart from that, although towels etc are advertised as provided, when queried with housekeeping we were told to buy our own. Prices are extortionate - Cooking utensils and cutlery are available to rent (€2 per piece of cutlery/crockery and €5-€10 for cooking equipment eg saucepan). €3 per wash if you need to use the washing machine which I imagine most long term student would need to, and €4 for an ice cream???
If something is faulty in your room on a weekend, such as the fan in my case during 30C heat, you will be told to wait until Monday for anyone to even attempt fixing it. Our fridge freezer broke leaving the communal area flooded.
In the post graduate apartments which are built for 6 people there is one small fridge and a tiny fridge freezer. There wasn’t enough room in ours which only had 4 people who did small shops every few days, so I don’t know how it would accommodate 6 people.
All in all, when I go back to my university and am asked to recommend accommodation for next years exchange students, I would tell them anywhere but here. If I could cancel now and get my money back I certainly would.

As many people have mentioned before, the one good thing about the residence are the many cool people you can meet here! I stayed for one semester and found many great friends. The residence itself though, does not offer a lot. When we arrived in February we had to stay in a shared room for 3 days before we could move into our actual booked rooms, for which we payed double the amount of money so we wouldn’t have to share. Of course the money for those days spent in a single room with 3 beds and no room to even walk around the beds has not been refunded to us.
Malta has been unexpectedly cold the first few months of the year in 2019 and the residence only put on the heating after midnight and on such a low setting that everyone I know had to go and buy extra blankets. When we asked them to put on the heating during the day (the rooms were around 17 degrees celcius during the day) they said that was not possible because they would have to put it on for all the rooms and that would be too expensive...
My blanket was taken away by housekeeping in March and when I went to get it back I only got a stained, thin bed sheet so that I had to go buy my own blanket in the end (keep in mind this is the same room that they do not want to heat for you...).
The rooms themselves are very old and dirty and FULL of insects. There are at least a dozen worms in your rooms at all times. From the kitchen and bathroom ceilings paint fell down constantly, so that we could only use one of the four cooking plates as if you used the others, paint would fall into your food while making it. They tried to fix this problem once in 5 monthes and after 1 week the paint fell off again.
In the summer when it’s over 30 degrees inside as well, you only have a loud, old fan, which doesn’t help against the heat at all. If you want to use the air conditioning you have to pay an extra 10$ every single day to use it.
Generally, they make you pay for all kinds of things huge amounts of money. If you want to wash your clothes you pay 3$ every time for washing and another 3$ for tumbling. The 2 washing maschines they have for the over 100 people living here do not work most of the time. at least one of them is out of order every second day. You also have to buy your own kitchen utensils as they don’t have enough to rent out of you’re not very early.
You also do not get all the money you pay as your deposit back. People have gotten different amounts of money back but everyonw was missing between 10-50 euros. When we asked them about it, they said the bank just takes the money and it’s not their fault so they can’t do anything about it.
The residence is also extremely loud. The fire alarm goes on about every second day. A lot of times it will go off after midnight.
There is a shuttle taking you to Paceville every Tuesday, Thursday and on the Weekend, which also means that on all these days every single person will walk by your room at 4am if you have a room close to the reception.
In the morning the house keeping met infront of my window every day at 7am where they talked and laughed for 20minutes before they started working. There is no isolation in the windows which means you will be woken up every day at 7am, even if you wear earplugs.
Funnily enough, while the reception will sometimes quite down the people screaming around by the pool after 11pm, they let Maltese people have parties here every weekend which go on until after midnight, with DJs and music so that you can’t possibly sleep until they leave.
Overall, I wouldn’t really recommend spending over 3000€ for a 5 months stay at the residence, where you have either ice cold or boiling hot rooms with insects crawling around and housekeeping waking you up every morning at 7, while the party goers will wake you up at 4am and the Maltese people have parties until after midnight.

We made a last minute reservation here well a nurse did for us as my dad took a heart attack on our holiday to Malta and had no accommodation to stay in and our holiday money running out,DO NOT STAY HERE!! Bugs/ants crawling all over the beds, dirty floors, dirty toilets and mold on the curtains, we didn't even stay the night.. We left and where refused our money back and instead had to check into a hotel costing us more money and received no apology and were told to email about our money, we received and email back saying the room was fine and they seen nothing wrong with it. AVOID AT ALL Costs! (pictures taken from a video so quality is bad)

I stayed here on my own for five weeks in May-June 2016 while carrying out research for a book. I had a 'superior' apartment to myself with small kitchen/living room, bathroom and bedroom. The manager and staff were very friendly and helpful and I was able to use the free shuttle bus to get to and from the University Library in Msida.

Pros: friendly staff, quiet apart from road noise during the day outside my bedroom window, plenty of space, well-equipped kitchen, reasonably clean, air con in bedroom. Good hire car company just down the road, swimming pool. Very reasonably priced.

Cons: Uni Res used mainly by students so no-one to socialise with if you are older. There can be a lot of noise around the pool till early hours. Location of room important.

Ideal for younger people or singles/couples of whatever age who want to avoid the mass tourist places.
