About The Summit
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 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.
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.
