Callice Court - Unite

3.5

Quality of rooms - 4 Fun/Atmosphere - 2.5 Location - 5
Safety - 5 Management - 2.5 Value - 2

The best thing I can say about Callice Court is that its location is absolutely perfect. Opposite a local sainsbury's (although rather expensive), next door to the library and rest of the uni, next door to a popular club (Empire) and ten minutes walk from the town centre.



The accommodation itself is beautiful, it has its own secret garden, has a clean and fun common room, outdoor seating is perfectly placed socially. The bedrooms and kitchen are very big and clean and when I arrived nothing was broken. I know lots of students who are hugely jealous of our halls and often will spend there time at the parties there.



Throughout the year we have received a lot of goodies. We got a new microwave without asking for one, we got two new sofas to replace the ones we got originally and we have a cleaner fortnightly which makes such a difference. The residence is also really quite sound proof, my room is so quiet at all times of the day even though I am on ground floor.



Despite this, the price of this accommodation is extortionate. I have no money left over from my maintenance loan to live off as I have spent the entirety of it on rent - only having realised just how irritating this is half way through the year. I HIGHLY recommend to freshers that you look into cheaper accommodation.



Furthermore, as part of the temporary construction work and cheap appliances and furniture, we are now finding - in second term - that everything is beginning to break. We have hinges coming off our cupboards and wardrobes, one of the stools has actually totally broken and is completely unusable. The hobs on the cooker have always been terrible for cooking food, but they have become even slower over the last few weeks.



Alongside this, they have constantly changed the Wifi which has resulted in really poor and unpredictable signal which very often makes me incredibly angry when I can't use the internet for my research or to get access to my lecture notes. I emailed Unite Students to complain about this, and demand a reason as to why it is so difficult when we, as students, require the internet as an essential, and they merely replied with a 'sorry' and a 'hope it gets better'. Useless.



Whilst the staff on reception are kind and lovely people, they have also been very difficult when it has come to arranging money. I have been passed on and on to other people, over the phone, over email, face to face, when it came to re-arranging my rent payments - something that had me very stressed for a long time. The issue itself has still not been solved.



But my greatest criticism is for Unite directly, not Callice Court. Unite is a money-grabbing, abusive company that takes advantage of vulnerable students who are new to the rent-paying world. The feedback I have heard from many students is that they lost out on so much of their deposit return because of the ridiculous excuses Unite used to take that deposit. Things like 'noise complaints', 'mishandled furniture', 'broken appliances', these are things that they kept no record of. Unreliable appliances they chose themselves and yet still have the nerve to claim students are breaking them. I am sure there are cases where it is students to blame, but many times, they have been wrongly accused. I have only come across this issue after living at Callice for a month or two, I was unaware of the danger Unite poses for students deposit payments. My flat, for instance, has paint stripped from the corners of the ceiling where past students have clearly hung things and ripped the paint off. Additionally, there are cracks in the ceiling outside in the corridor where time has taken its toll on the cheap material. I took photo's of all the damages on day one, and no-doubt, by the time I need to move out in the summer, Unite will fine me for these, blaming myself and my flat mates for the damage done to the flat which was not our fault. In the past, they have been known to fine up to £200 for menial excuses like 'noise complaints' (which they haven't recorded). I will not let this happen to me or my flatmates and I hope any of you planning to stay at Callice Court will be prepared for the demands that Unite makes at the end of first year.



On a more positive note, if you are looking for a fun and sociable halls, then I have discovered that it doesn't actually matter where you go, it is what you make of your first year uni experience.

Callice was good, however when I was a resident there were lots of building works which meant that it was very noisy from early in the morning through to the evening. Additionally I asked to be in a mixed flat, however I was put in a girls only... was a bit annoyed and worried when I first started uni however it was okay. The not so nice thing within Callice were the RATS! Not the halls' fault, because rats are all over Coventry and when it rains, the sewers are full therefore the rats are everywhere :( Back to a positive which is the location, very close to all the university buildings and having an en-suite was really useful.

Callice is a lovely place to live, the staff are helpful and friendly and the maintenance team are always fast at fixing things. Its also so close to uni! The rooms are good size with average sized en-suites. However, it is very expensive, and student loan doesn't cover it! The washing is also very pricey at £2.70 for the cheapest wash.

Callice is so close to the uni campus, the rooms are all modern and spacious. The staff are really friendly and any maintaince problems are resolved immediately. The rent is a little pricey though and to park your car here it's a £600 parking permit! Despite that it feels very homey.

Callice Court is great for location! However the price for the room, and overall management and safety is not good enough at the price you are paying. I would go and look around the site before renting a room.

I love Unite and think their properties are really great for getting the most out of student life. Callice is in a really central location meaning you're super close to University classes and to all the shops. All the bars are pretty close and you're relatively close to nightclubs (you're more likely to want to take a taxi to them). Their description of there being a 'large sainsburys' nearby isn't strictly true - it's not big by any means and is still a bit of a walk when you have your shopping.

The rooms are spacious and you have your own en-suite. There are different sized flats so if you choose to stay another year you're bound to find one that will accommodate yourself and your friends. It's also relatively secure (people can easily tailgate inside the property and security is not always on site), and the staff are wonderful - super friendly and helpful. Also, if you have a problem with your flat, all maintenance is fast and cost-free. The internet is also unlimited and quite fast, but i've noticed this year has struggled to be able to stream YouTube videos or Netflix in HD.

The only really bad downside is the cost. If I was starting university now I would be in a bad financial situation from the get-go as the prices tend to increase every year for these properties. It's far more than I managed to get from student finance and I had to fork out £500 of my own money on top of student finance in both September and January for rent. It's also quite a noisy place to live although this has been improved slightly by a nightclub which was situated just next door shutting down. Also, the washing/drying of clothes can be expensive at £2.70-3 a load and £1.20 for drying.

If you can afford it, it's a great place to live and can give you a really great experience during your first year if you're placed with the right people.
