Stayed at castings for 2 years now and rebooked for our final year! Made some amazing friends here. The staff at castings are all really welcoming and friendly. They will go above and beyond to help you with anything. Location is brilliant right next to the uni and only a 5-10 minute walk into town. Maintenance are really good any problems will be looked at and fixed promptly. Car parking is really secure. Bronze rooms are modern and a nice size.

don't stay here the rooms are nice but they have a serious silverfish problem, I had them on my desk, in my bed all over the floor, and on kitchen benches eating my work and cooking books. Was disgusting. all they did was put a few traps down which did nothing. The buildings are riddled with them. when trying to get the help they weren't very helpful and only want money. One thing is the maintenance guy was lovely.

Accommodation was good overall, staff were very helpful when asked for assistance. However, I did encounter a few problems: Silverfish insects often in flat and kitchen, had to spray bathroom cleaner near skirting boards to prevent them constantly appearing. Other students in other blocks/flats apparently had this issue too. Strange smell in my flat throughout the whole year (was there when I arrived), reported issue but nothing was done about it. Made all my clothes smell unpleasant. Paid extra for a 'river-view' which was basically just a view of trees, 'view' was obscured for 5+ months by scaffolding. Had to buy our own kettle and toaster but new TV and oven were provided when needed which was excellent. Also, the company was very considerate in refunding rent during the Covid period. Additionally, they kept my belongings safe in my flat during lockdown so I could recollect them when it was permitted by the government.

Southill House is a shared accommodation and is and can make for a close knit relationship with your house mates. There is not much space for everyone as there's 10 people max in the house but the rooms are big and open. The WiFi can be dodgy but that's due to how many people are in the house.

Modern and clean, flats usually have 6 bedrooms and a shared kitchen. The social spaces were great, as they had a common room and study area.

Moved to Aspley house over summer and everything was perfect. In the following term, the manager was disrespectful and broke many of the agreements in the tenancy agreement. After 3 months of constant hassle from other students and staff. The manager made me homeless with nowhere to live for the next possible week whilst I sorted out alternative accommodation. Lived in other accommodations in Huddersfield however, the way I was treated whilst living here leads me to believe this is the worst accommodation in Huddersfield for students.
