Great place to live in. Lots of light and very spacious. If there is any help you need plenty of staff to help you out. Tony, the maintenance guy is amazing! If you have any issues just need to email the reception and he will sort it out straight away. And plenty of flat competitions to be part of as well as free goodies!

Perfect accommodation during my second year, couldn't ask for a better location for De Montfort University. The accommodation felt safe with pleasant staff which were always willing to help! Facilities in each flat are some of the best I have seen, and parking is available right outside the building. Would highly recommend to any students looking for accommodation for the next academic year.

This is my second year living under the same management, and they are amazing. They look after the students so well any problems they are sorted as quickly as possible. The zip building itself is such a lovely student accommodation and is really easy to make it look and feel like home.

This is my first time living at the Zip, so far any teething problems have been resolved very quickly. Tony has been fantastic to sort anything I've mentioned and turns up when he's agreed to. Very simple maintenance issue reporting system too.
