Of course no place is perfect, and there can be some maintainence issues, but staff are friendly and helpful whenever this happens.

Checking in was simple and welcoming. The staff are lovely and generous people who are always happy to help no matter what the situation. The rooms are modern and spacious, and Uni is within walking distance. Living here for the 2nd year running and the only problems I've had personally are things being broken or fuses not working, yet the friendly and helpful maintenance staff are at your service 24 hours fixing problems for you as well as letting you into your flat when you've lost or forgotten your key! Would highly recommend :)

The Castings or Castings house, is the place to live if you are a student at the University of Huddersfield.

Perfectly located across the road from the university, so that you can always make your 9am lectures even if you wake up late.

The accommodation is sleek and well furnished and provides a lot of of the basic amenities a student needs! Fast Wifi, a Common room with a pool table and gaming rooms, a gym that residents can use and even a nice quiet study area for when it's time to finally get down to work.

The staff is very helpful and there is always someone who is on site in case you lock yourself out of your room or are having a crisis in your flat.

Another really nice thing that the staff do is that they organise events every month to provide the residents with some fun and stress relief. From the Welcome Party, to Halloween parties to movie nights and free food events, they really do alot for the students.

Castings house is a great place to live and you will definitely be making the right choice moving here.

I have only recently moved into Castings House, due to problems at my previous accommodation, however I would fully recommend anyone to live here! With only a 10 minute walk to the main student union, and a 15 minute walk into the city of Huddersfield, the accommodation could not be better situated!



The rooms are absolutely gorgeous with a 3/4 bed as standard in every room, so much better when you are used to having a double at home! Plenty of space with a relatively large wardrobe for student hallas, and a set off 3 deep drawers and also plenty of storage underneath the bed, not to mention the very well designed shelves into the bed itself. The bathroom is absolutely beautiful, made out of a single sheet of plastic, it is easy to keep clean and the numerous shelves help to keep everything organised in there! Not to mention the shower.. GORGEOUS, can honestly say that it is more powerful than my shower that I have at home!

The bed itself is incredibly comfortable. The social spaces available are absolutely amazing and just what you need, and the additional study space makes it even easier when you need somewhere very quiet to complete work, rather than sticking within the 4 walls of your flat.



Check in was so easy to complete and all the staff within the reception are very kind and understanding about everything, not to mention Michelle who has been in our positions herself only a few years ago, amazing woman and so easy to talk to! Castings also put on regular social events, and organise plenty of activities for everyone to complete.. Couldn't ask for anything better!!



Such an amazing place to live, everywhere is so warm and cosy... Really does feel like my home from home!!

I'm so happy I chose to book at The Castings this year; in comparison to other accommodation within Huddersfield this is arguably the best value for money. Ideal location in the centre of town less then 5 minutes walk from the university! The staff engagement with students is fabulous, including the additional activities such as the welcome BBQ and free Halloween cocktails and face painting. Although the initial price of the basic rooms seems high, the money you save from not needing to get taxis to and from town and from it needing to travel by bus, the free gym (!!!) definitely makes up for the initial higher price! All in all this is for sure the best accommodation available in Huddersfield to date!

Couldn't love Castings more! All staff members really go out of their way to make sure you're feeling at home. Lots of criticism day to day, generally on Facebook but they are only human and they really do try their best. Its great to know that a few of them are former students too, they are young and know what we want and its easy to talk to them about university stuff.

staff are great however when events are held no one can actually attend because you close early and dont actually think about the students who all have lectures. The price paid for the room is just sad the room is so tinny no space for nothing. It is very anti social especially when you move into a flat where you have no friends nothing is done about it no actual social events. At least storthes hall done events in the evening to make sure everyone attended. Lastly the common room is in the worst location especially when you want to go to the study room you have to go through the social area to go and actually study. Disappointed. for the amount of money charged find something more bigger and more social dont fall for the looks of the pretty pink decorations after a while you will see it all.

I've visited nigh on every student accommodation in Huddersfield now seeing mates and I would definitely say Castings is the best, it's new last year so all the furniture is modern, nice and clean. The shared kitchen/lounge is really nice with the free tv and creates a friendly atmosphere for you and your flatmates. Staff have always been lovely when I've spoken to them and there's regular events with free food and entertainment. No doubt that it's expensive but if you can afford it it's definitely worth it.

Aside from the obvious perks of the accommodation such as the great location and excellent facilities (I would have rebooked for the en-suite alone!), what's set Castings House above other accommodations I've lived in are the staff. They have always been very helpful, prompt when needed and help provide a friendly and positive atmosphere all-year round. You're treated as individuals and not just a huge mass of "young and dumb students". Communication is handled through email and their Facebook group, where any queries/requests are discussed publicly during the weekdays.



One thing to bare in mind is unfortunately the overall cost, this is one if not the most expensive choice of student halls in the area. It is by all means worth the asking price, but many may want to consider their finances before opting to book a room. If you plan to work alongside your studies than I highly recommend Castings House. Otherwise, make sure you know how much money you're going to have after paying each rent installment.

Castings House is a really lovely place to live. The staff are wonderful and will always do the most to help you out in any way they can. They're just a call away 24/7 so if you have a problem you can always reach someone friendly. They often have fun little events and parties going on with free food, drinks, entertainment, etc. Facilities are amazing, cosy new rooms with ensuites all decorated and furnished really modernly. The common room has a ps4, TV with netflix, pool table, all that jazz. The only downsides are the price (it is expensive but you get what you pay for) and the location which is a little dodgy, but that can't be helped - plus it's literally less than 5 minutes from uni so there's an upside. :) I love living here!

The place itself is only a couple of years old and all rooms have nice ensuites and modern decor. I've lived here for two years and staff are friendly and helpful. There's loads of little events regularly giving out freebies too (ice cream, breakfast, waffles, to name a few).



Location's great for uni (5/10mins). A good 10min walk to town/sainsburies or theres a little asda and iceland which I use. 20mins to train station.



I would ask for a room not facing into the courtyard as students obviously can be quite noisy in the night.

I love it here, it's safe, friendly and there's always stuff going on. At the start of the term they make sure you get to know everyone and everything there is, with a welcome party (it's awesome by the way) and a welcome pack with all the useful stuff in.

I cannot fault the staff here either, from the prodigy living team to maintenance everyone is friendly and really helpful.

Feels so welcoming and a lovely home away from home

I love it here, it's only a really short walk into university so it's really convenient. The rooms are done to a high standard and you get a lot of things that other basic accommodations don't offer. The staff are great and really helpful with everything.

The staff are all really helpful here and always put on events which are fun and give you free food ???????? the check in experience was really straight forward, only negative was the 30 minutes you are given to unload everything out your car to move in, but that's expected when there's so many moving in at once! The location couldn't be any closer to uni either.

The staff are very welcoming and will literally bend over backwards for you! The maintenance team are usually on hand to solve any problems on the next working day!

There is constantly something going on whether its hotdogs and waffles Or mulled cider on bonfire night. If there is ever an issue there's always someone to call and help and it will get fixed in no time. The rooms are lovely and homey. Also the five minute walk to uni is something I'll definitely miss.

I'm a first year student and I wanted to live within a close proximity to the uni. This is the perfect location as it is a 5 minute walk from the university. Given, you can sometimes hear other residents, but that will be the same with all student accommodation. When i first checked in, the staff was warm and eelcoming, and the wlelcome oparty was good too. Overall, this is a great place to live, with plenty of friendly staff that wee willing to help at any point throughout the stay.

Castings House is lovely in general, but the amount of noise you can hear made by other residents, from your room, on a daily basis is ridiculous. The walls are paper thin so you can hear pretty much everything! Other than that I'd highly recommend it, the staff are great and the facilities are well looked after!

A year has flown by and it could have been a very long year if not for the fact that I lived in such a brilliant student accommodation. I've felt like it has been my home away from home because as well as the facilities being really up to standard, the staff have been very welcoming and at all times - both the day and night staff are really efficient.



I would recommend The Casting to any student looking for somewhere welcoming, modern, vibrant and with perfect location.

The atmosphere is great, I couldn't have wished for anywhere better to live. The location is spot on, near everything that you could possibly need. Rooms are quite small but enough space to do what you need to do.

The Castings is an amazing student accommodation. The staff are friendly and super helpful and if you have any problems, then they sort them out straight away, simply brilliant. The flats are terrific! They're spacious and modern and very comfortable to both live and study in! The Castings is literally 5 minutes away from the Uni, 2 if you can speed walk. It's easy to find and get to, close to the town and shops so it's not a problem carrying shopping from a supermarket. It's a mini community and I've absolutely loved living there for this past year. I'd recommend it to anyone who's looking for accommodation in Huddersfield. Big thanks to the Castings for the past year!

great location, very friendly staff, really nice and modern in comparison with other student accommodations in huddersfield. The only down fall is the price £118 per week next year is just unaffordable for most students, personally I think there are lots of private accommodations just as nice for much less. Another down fall is parking, I had to pay £400 this year to park my car up the road it's just far too expensive especially when it's parked at the bottom of newsome, although this cannot be helped as the castings has no parking another £400 in Cash to the parking man in July, after the £400 in September is just unreasonable

5 minute walk from uni so great location, can be noisy at times as there are flat parties but nothing you would not expect from student accommodation.



I have had problems with one of my flatmates and also noise once but the management team sorted it out right away, management and reception staff are friendly, and there's always lots of freebies which is good. Sometimes they give you free hot chocolate, cakes and breakfast.



But fire alarms are sensitive and can be set off easily. At least we know they work lol



I'm living here again next year as theres a good atmosphere and rooms are really nice. :)

Huddersfield is known as one of the friendliest towns in the UK and that is certainly the case when it comes to the team in charge of Castings House Huddersfield. They bend over backwards to make sure their students want for nothing and organise many social events to bring everyone together. There is also a great security team in place who are on-site around the clock and backed up by electronic fob entry and CCTV cameras.

Features

The accommodation at Castings House Huddersfield is made up of self contained studios and en-suite rooms within share flats. They come in a  variety of sizes and but are all spacious and contain such essentials as a study area and ample storage. Elsewhere in Castings House there is always something going on in the communal spaces. Whether you want to watch TV, chat with friends at home via the 100Mb Wi-Fi or play a few games of pool it's all on offer here. There are also top end games consoles for those who prefer do their gaming online. Laundry facilities and secure bike storage are 2 more of the many features on offer here.
