Have enjoyed my stay in CityBlock Leicester, lovely building, well managed with a real feel of community. I am an international student and made many friends staying in the block. The additional safety and security measures in place to protect the residents is a great comfort. Love that I am a 5 minute walk to DMU, and town centre.

Rachel has been fantastic to deal with, she knows everyone by name, and goes out of her way to make all the students feel at home and welcome. Would happily reccommend this block to any students looking for a place to live.

After my year at Cityblock Leicester, I am able to say that it has not been a great experience. I have met some lovely people here, however management is appalling. The first issue that occurred a few weeks in was the fire alarm, and the time it took for staff to attend to the situation. It was early morning and all of the residents stood outside in the cold for over an hour, waiting for someone to come and check the building. This is a regular occurrence with a maximum waiting time of 2 hours. Another thing is the false information from the staff when shown around for the first time. I was told that there would be a maximum of 12-14 people to a kitchen, however this was not the case and when I moved in I discovered that there were in fact 20 people to one kitchen. The fridges do not get cleaned at all when there are leakages, and the stench is unbearable unless you lean them yourself. The final thing is the lack of professionalism from the manager, who one night came into CityBlock drunk, and slept on the floor with his trousers down and had urinated within the entrance. Photos were taken and shared around CityBlock. Not a very pleasant sight and not what you would expect from a manager. Disgraceful!

Large group of people and so it is friendly. Lots of space and relatively good for cost.
