The breath-taking River Soar is within walking distance from the property, where you can enjoy a view like no other. Leicester Castle, the Newarke Houses Museum, and Castle Motte are all close by for you to explore. There's a Tesco Express 4 minutes stroll away.

**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.
