As much as I loved the staff and social spaces at The Shield, I wouldn’t have rebooked for so many years if it wouldn’t have been for Keith. The thought of having 24/7 reliable and trustworthy security on site has calmed me greatly and made me feel protected. Then very few times I had noisy neighbours and couldn’t focus on working on my assignments, I always turned to Keith who would resolve the situation within the first 5 minutes of me ringing. He’s always been friendly and I could see the effort he put in to get to know the students who live here, from remembering names after one encounter, to trying to learn greetings in different languages so he could make the international students feel more comfortable. He’s always respectful, professional and it’s always been a delight talking to him. He’ll make time to chat with you if you’re lonely, upset or simply want to talk to someone, which has been an immense help for me considering I’ve lived alone for what feels like forever now. The Shield is extremely lucky to have him as part of their staff.

I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU BOOK AT THIS ACCOMMODATION!! I’ve loved living at The Shield , the facilities are amazing and clean to even my very high standards , the staff are kind and helpful & very accessible at all times. They went to great lengths to keep us safe during COVID & there was always somebody at reception to talk with 24/7 when lonely and feeling isolated. Vanessa always made time to chat even though she probably had a million things to do and then there is Keith, I mean he bakes for us (his brownies are to die for), brings his puppies in for us & helps us out when we’re maybe being a little drunk and silly with patience and a smile & he never seems upset or hassled by it , he makes you feel like he truly is here to help in any way possible and he made me feel safe at all times and it genuinely makes me feel very sad to be leaving my home from home

I couldn't imagine living anywhere else! I have been living here ever since I've started university three years ago and I have already booked for my masters! The staff (especially Vanessa) have always been helpful, cheerful and happy to chat whenever I needed or had any questions. I also could easily recognise the amount of effort they have put in to keep us safe during this pandemic: the premises are sanitized multiple times a day, signs and reminders placed everywhere possible, hand sanitizing stations at every entrance and we even get weekly updates on the restrictions and what to look forward to once this is all over! We even have 24/7 security on site which has been a great commodity as Keith always kept helped me when I needed and kept me company whenever I felt like talking to someone. He keeps us safe at all times, he bakes every weekend, from brownies to cupcakes, cookies, cakes (and what not!), even bringing his puppies in, which is always the best part of the year! Honestly it's difficult to even imagine that at some point I won't be able to live here anymore!
