About The Summit

The Summit by Student Roost is a student housing in Leicester that offers apartments and studios. The apartments come in two styles: One-Bed Apartments, and Four-Bed Apartments. As for the studios, they come in four styles: Gold Studio, Silver Studio, Bronze Studio, and Platinum Studio. All room types include a double bed, under bed storage, a study desk and a chair, a wardrobe, and a chest of drawers.

The building has many facilities and services. The facilities include high-speed Wi-Fi, contents insurance, on-site laundry facilities, a secured deposit, and ANUK accreditation. Other services include a social calendar, a gym, private gardens, bike storage, and on-site parking.

Leicester sits at the eastern edge of the National Forest, on the Soar River. With roots reaching back to the Iron Age, it is one of England's oldest cities.

The property is located at Eastern Boulevard, just ten minutes away from Leicester city centre. It’s surrounded by many exciting and lovely locations, including eatery spots, entertainment and nightlife venues, and other places of interest. If you wish to grab a quick bite, Phat Buns is a five-minute walk from the residence and it serves hamburgers plus fries and drinks in a simple setting. If you’re craving a mouth-watering pizza, Franklin Cafe and  Restaurant is just a short walk from the building and it offers Italian fare including pizza and pasta in a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. If you’re into Japanese cuisine, we suggest you make a stop at the nearby Little Tokyo Restaurant. It offers an authentic Japanese menu in a cozy space. When you need to do some grocery shopping, Tesco Express supermarket is five minutes away and it has a plethora of products at great deals to cater to your needs. After your busy day on campus, we highly recommend you go for a casual evening stroll at Bede Park. It has spacious green fields, beautiful scenery, and long walking paths. Over the weekend, you may go on a night out with your pals and watch the latest box office movies at the ODEON Luxe Leicester movie theatre. You may also choose to go on a shopping spree at Haymarket Shopping Centre which has many stores, shops, boutiques, and eateries. Another thing you can do during the weekend is be a tourist for the day and explore the local history and more by visiting the Leicester Museum and Art Gallery. It has many interesting and interactive exhibitions.

*This accommodation is fully-furnished but please note that bedding and other soft-furnishings are not included.

7-Day Cooling Off Period

If you decide to cancel your accommodation booking within 7 days of accepting your tenancy agreement, you will receive a full refund of your booking fee. 

If you secure your accommodation and then cancel it due to the following reasons: 

  • Failure to receive grades (all academic years)
  • Failure to obtain a VISA (all academic years)
  • Studying in an alternative City

Official written evidence from the University (and/or UCAS/relevant VISA authorities) must be sent directly to the Property Team within 3 calendar days of the results or decision being published. If sufficient evidence is provided, you will be eligible for release from the tenancy agreement and the full booking fee will be returned.

If none of the above reasons is applicable, you will be required to find a replacement person to take over your tenancy. Any bookings made after 1st August will have a 24hr cooling off period

After Cooling Off Period

Students can cancel after the cooling-off period for the following reasons: 

  • Failure to receive grades
  • Failure to obtain a visa
  • Studying in an alternative city
  • The pre-sessional English language course required to take up their university place is cancelled
  • Government travel restrictions prevent them from travelling to the UK.
  • They are enrolled on a face-to-face course, and the University delays the start of the course.

Bookings made on or after 1st August 2020

If you book your accommodation after 1st August 2020, your cooling-off period will reduce to 24 hours only from the point of acceptance. If you cancel your booking within these 24 hours, your full deposit will be returned. Should you wish to cancel after these 24 hours, the previous procedures will apply depending on your circumstances.

COVID Update

We will seek to delay the start of the tenancy for any new residents who were due to arrive in the UK, but cannot check-in because of flight cancellations, visa delays or travel restrictions. 

 For residents who have already checked in and can’t return to their Student Roost home because of the restrictions in the UK, we’re pleased to offer a discount of up to 6 weeks’ rent. This will largely affect UK domestic students, but may also affect some international students who travelled home for the holidays.

While the staff are amazing and the location and large windows in the studios are nice, I have also had a lot of bad/gross experiences. I booked the Gold Studio and the only part that looked like the pictures when I moved in was the shape of the room. A broken table was laying in the middle of the room, the toilet seat was completely unattached and laying on the bathroom floor, there were sick stains on the mattress, the sink was clogged, I did not have any seating which was promised in my contract, the TV didn't work until November, and mold and dust was everywhere. Clearly, no one checked the room at all before I moved in, though the front desk and maintenance staff have always been quick to respond if I need any help. Once, I walked into the building and found a homeless man sleeping under the stairs and had to report it to the front desk who had to have the police remove him. Despite supposedly having security 24/7, no one has managed students partying/having loads of people over during the lockdown which puts all residents at risk of exposure. Unsafe and often unclean. I wouldn't live here if I had the chance to do it again.

The staff in this building are very helpful with any issues that may arise. It's in a good location (less than 5 min walk from DMU, about 20 min walk to Uni of Leicester). The free gym for residents is very close by and of good quality with lots of machines available. Grocery stores, etc. also very close by. It is a student building so can get loud at times, but if you are ok with this, then it is a good place to live and seems better than other student accommodations available in Leicester. The views are nice, and if you like to watch live sports it is 5 min walk to King Power Stadium for Leicester City FC, and also 5 min walk to Leicester Tigers rugby. In front of the building is the River Soar/Canal, which has walking paths and is nice to go by the water and see the swans, geese, ducks, etc. If looking for student accommodation in Leicester, it's a good option.

Excellent place to stay. Lived there during my postgraduate studies and I was very satisfied. Very helpful staff, good quality studios in affordable prices and in a very good location, about 20min walk to University of Leicester and 15min to the city center. They also provide a bus everyday to the University of Leicester so you don't always have to walk there.
