Most helpful review

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.
