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.

This will largely affect UK domestic students, but may also affect some international students who travelled home for the holidays.

Management are the worst, room are overpriced as constant problems with the room you would have to be desperate to live here. Staff are all miserable and over worked (they have told me). Be warned student finance does not cover the rent and they well take you to court if you are struggling to pay (will need 1 or 2 part time jobs to cover it). Your better of getting a shared house. I have friends staying at the other sites of this company and they feel the same way...

Loudest and worst accommodation in leicester, students running and shouting down the hallways nearly everyday till 4am absolutely outrageous. Get woken up constantly by this noise. They claim to have security but only on the odd occasion. Would not recommend!!

Worst accomodation experience ever. I was facing a lot of problems like smell of cigaratte/weed smoke (coming in room), loud and late noises , problem with facilities, furniture, all kinds of problems which could not be fixed by them so I decided leave.Turns out they won't let me leave and terminate the contract at all, and I would have to find my replacement. After finding a replacement for my room (which took a couple months of searching) and leaving, I contacted them several times on email about my arrears and presented my calculation which according to me, I was supposed to pay. Didn't get resonse for more than a month. Then suddenly I got payment reminders with huge unexpected bill. I contacted them again, and was told the student covid discount was reversed as I don't qualify for it, I mean if I didn't qualify, I shouldn't have been given the discount in the first place. Shows how disorganized is their management team is again. You can't just expect students/customers to read all your terms and conditions all your polciies etc. I was in chat with their customer service team regularly while I was leaving just to make sure it was done the proper way, not once did they said the covid discount could be reversed. Customer service team literally said to me today that ''We've done everything right, it's your fault'' I asked to forward to his manager/supervisor so as to seek better help to which the the CS agent said ''I can't, I'll loose my job if I did that'' what sorta customer service is that?

The majority of the rooms all have some sort of little faults in them, such as the wardrobe linings coming off, or bad paint jobs or even bad condition sofa or damage to the bed frame. I was moved from my first room after unpacking due to me being given the wrong room when I moved in. The room that they then put me in had a window which fell on top of me due to the staff not checking the room beforehand to find out that the restrictor for the window had been tempered with. Now I am on nearly my third week living in a room where they’ve drilled the window back on, meaning there is no way of getting even the slightest bit of fresh air in, not to speak on the fact it’s a fire hazard.

I have been a student tenant with them during 2019/2020 at Upperton Road through DMU accommodation. The building design and room distribution is great, distance to DMU and University of Leicester is perfect, front desk and handy person were kind and cooperative most of the time, however, since it is a student accommodation don’t expect to have a quiet time, they are also terrible at responding to emails and phone communications, laundry room is dirty most of the time, and gym room is messy with dusty equipments. During the COVID-19 they provided an exemption from last rent payment, I have applied on the start of May and haven’t received a confirmation of payment removal till now. Overall would not recommend due to the response and services compared with paid price.
