About The Glassworks

The Glassworks is a student housing in Leicester that offers various en-suites, studios, and shared apartments. All rooms feature a bed, a study desk with a chair, a wardrobe, a bedside table, under-bed storage, an en-suite bathroom, and bookshelves. 

The building offers various facilities and services. They include Wi-Fi, 24/7 on-site staff with CCTV, Secure Key Fob access, and contents insurance. Other services include a communal lounge, a games area, a study room, events, a fitness suite, an outdoor courtyard, secure bicycle parking, and a laundry room.

On the banks of the River Soar, the English East Midlands region city of Leicester is located. It is one of the oldest cities in England and has the East Midlands' second-largest economy.

The residence is located on Newarke Street, only a short walk from the centre of the city. It is surrounded by many lively and interesting locations, including eatery spots, entertainment venues, and other places of interest. If you’re craving a juicy steak, Fernandez Grillhouse is four minutes away on foot, and it serves the best steaks in the neighbourhood! If you’d like to grab a quick bite, Crafty St Martin's is a nearby restaurant offering burgers, plus fries and drinks, in a lively atmosphere. Casa Romana is another nearby eatery serving traditional Italian fare, including pasta and pizza, in a homely atmosphere. 

You can go grocery shopping at the Tesco Express supermarket that’s just around the corner. It has plenty of products at great prices to cater to your needs. Before you set off for your busy day on campus, we suggest you go for a refreshing morning walk at Castle Park, where you may enjoy the greenery and the scenery. Over the weekend, you can enjoy a night out with your pals and watch the latest box office movies at the Showcase Cinema de Lux Leicester. You may also choose to go on a shopping spree at Highcross Leicester, where you’ll find lots of shops, stores, and boutiques. Another thing you can do during the weekend is to explore the local history of the city and more by visiting the Leicester Museum and Art Gallery.

**The building is committed to supplying electricity to the room with consumption up to £300 regardless of the tenancy period/let. If the student exceeds this sum, they will be prone to paying extra charges.

Revised Payment Plans

To make booking your room for the new academic year even easier, we’ve reduced the initial rent payment due upon booking to £100. The remaining balance of the initial rent payment, which would normally be due upon booking, will now be added to the balance due upon your second payment date.

Good accommodation for students with all you need for the purpose. Caretakers very helpful and good administrative support. Some improvement would be welcome on some equipment, such as the elevator.

Helpful and lovely staff, freebies for residents, modern and clean rooms and common areas, right next to campus, 5 minute walk from town. What more could you want?

Been here 2 years. They have good and responsible staff. They always ensure our parcel delivered and room issues solved properly. Common rooms are tidy and clean. The yard are noisy at night because of party guys left. Strongly recommend this accommodation to international students.

This accommodation should be your last choice if your a DMU student. If you're unable to travel back to the accommodation due to COVID you will still have to pay the full amount even though you don't even live there. Go for DMU's own accommodation as they gave a 100% rebate for the lockdown period meanwhile glassworks still expects us to pay in full for a room we don't even live in! Edit: After coming back my showers pressure was lower than that of the rest of my flat so i asked maintenance 5+ times to come fix it. They didn't. Also asked them to come fix the leak under my sink. They then blamed it on condensation... If that's the problem then fix the extractor fan in the bathroom then. TLDR: Maintenance can't help with plumbing issues.
