Perfect location, close to a wide range of supermarkets for your grocery needs. Right opposite the Grafton Centre is also a plus. The ensuite rooms are really nice. Reception staff (Matthew and Olivia) are just amazing! Close to River Cam and Anglia Ruskin University.

Brunswick House Cambridge I have been living for 3 years and what I like about this place is that I am closer to the university (Anglia) to the city Center I have a direct bus to the train station and I’m also near the Tesco superstore and bars and Grafton shopping Center and so on, the accommodation it’s good for the price as it provides me with the necessary tools to make my stay here enjoyable, we don’t need to worry about electricity, heating or anything regarding the housing we have fire alarms and assembly points tested every week good security we have wardens ready at any time to help in case of trouble or keys being lost and so, no problems with the deliveries or parcels as they are kept in reception for us, if something is broken Chris will happily fix it for us if something is not clean Ben will take care of it for us. It is a really good accommodation. In terms of socialising I think the management could promote more events as there are a lot of people here.

I’ve been living in Brunswick house for the past 2 years and it is a great place to live. The building is in a great location, everything is walking distance from uni and city centre. The management of this place is great, if there is an issue it gets resolved quickly. They are also very supportive, understanding of situations and always available for a chat. The student experience here is amazing every day there is a new activity to take part in; for example, free breakfast on Monday, and several competitions that allow the students to win gifts. Overall, I really recommend Brunswick house to other students.

Brunswick house is in a super convient location, only 10 minutes to ARU and Grafton centre and a 15 minute slow walk to the big Tesco. The staff are amazing and always willing to help as soon as possible and if something cannot be completed then and there they always keep you updated on what is happening. The staff have been especially communicative during the pandemic and have been fully supportive and caring in the situation, Chris is always able to fix you maintenance issues as quickly as he can in a covid secure way. And Alison and Olivia are always willing to help out with the office issues and parcel collections. Unfortunately the major drawback is the price at an average of £8,000 to 9,000 a year it is very expensive. Almost too expensive especially when most student loans will not fully cover the cost. Especially during Covid when there has been a lot of time where most residents haven’t been at the accommodation due to the governments evolving lockdowns.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review and to hear all the points that have made your time here enjoyable. From location to staff to the site itself, we are so pleased to know this has helped during your university experience. As a property team we always want our students to know we're here to help them as best we can, especially during these trying times, so we are please to know you feel this way and it comes across to our students. With regard to the covid lockdowns, the landlord has provided rent relief packages for students who qualified and that had been effected in order to assist the the pressures put on finances during this time.

Poor management. Initially when I moved in I’ve got this Spanish flatmate, always show up topless in the kitchen and SMOKES INDOOR, and having parties all the time with his Spanish friends at night, and uses other people’s kitchenware. I and my other flatmates have talked to him about smoking indoor and the noise but he continued to do so. So we reported him to reception. At first they agreed to move him to another flat, but somehow they changed their mind as they have to ‘listen to both sides’ LMAO. There’s no punishment they did to that guy and he just continued to cause troubles. In the end me and my flatmates were the one that had to move out!!!! It’s ridiculous. There’s also noises during the night in general and they continued to apologize but it still happens quite often.... very disappointed and the room is overpriced. The main door gets locked everyday after 6pm and during weekends there’s no one at the reception. You have to cross the garden and communal area...

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, we are sorry to read that you feel this way about your stay here at Brunswick House. With reference to issues you faced with a flat mate, as procedure we will always recommend having a formal flat meeting in which flatmates discuss any issues and have time to see if this has helped the situation, on occasions where this does not happen we will always offer to move the person who has raised the issue to an alternative room with the aim to have out students comfortable during their stay. Unfortunately we are unable to move a student because someone else is complaining about them, if they do not wish to move.  With regards to your comments on no punishment and how we deal with issues with students and do not disclose these matters to others out of respect to individuals. For occurrences such as smoking indoors, which is certainly not acceptable, where evidence is found we follow company procedures in handling the matter. Likewise with noise, this has been discussed with our security team who are on site between 11pm and 5am every day, and we have noticed a considerable difference. However, if you are experiencing further disruption please do let us know either to the property team or our security team so we can isolate where the disturbance is coming from and deal with it accordingly. Our reception entrance is locked from 6pm as a safety measure, however the main gates and all other entrances/exits remain open both sides of building with access through your keys.  While the reception team is not on site at weekends, there is always someone available 24/7 should you need assistance from our out of hours team who can direct you through to the correct individual, our out of hours site phone which will take you through to our Property Manager and our onsite student wardens or security team. Numbers for all these contacts are on our notice boards around reception however do pop down to see us if you would like to run through these with us.Once again we want to thank you for taking the time to leave a review. The Brunswick Property Team

Brunswick house is an alright place. The staff is friendly and approachable, the rooms are cozy and well lit. The only issue really is storage space in the 4 bedroom flats. There isn't much fridge space for four, leading to people's things getting mixed in together

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, we really appriciate it. As a site we are looking at introduce an additional fridge freezer into our 4 bed clusters in order to provide more space. However, this is a process that will take time, but we certainly appriciate your feedback on the issue and please know we are currently looking at ways to resolve this.

Brunswick house is perfectly located. In less than 20 minutes you’ll find ARU, shopping mall, supermarket and the city center. The community areas are always clean and accessible (not during lockdown for obvious reasons ) The flats are spacious and well arrange. They are always containing all the pieces of furniture you may need for the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.

There’s always, something breaking down or not working. The place is infested with moths, which should of been dealt with by bringing a professional. There’s also areas of the buildings that need cleaning such as the hallways in every floor!!! The only good thing I can say about this place is the location, the maintenance guy Chris that is always running up and down fixing everyone’s issues.

Thank you for leaving a review of Brunswick House, we are sorry to hear that you feel this way towards your experience here. We work with professionals within pest control who have previously treated and dealt with moths onsite, if you are having issues with this, please do pop down to reception or make our site team aware so the problem can be resolved. At Brunswick House, we have a cleaner on site that cleans communal parts of the building, including the corridors and staircases weekly as well as increased cleaning of our key touch points on site daily. We do however appreciate your feedback on this and will look at what more we can do in this area. As you recognised, our maintenance operative Chris is excellent at his job, with issues completed and resolved efficiently. Where there are contractors required we endeavour to keep students updated and have the problem resolved as quickly as possible.  While we are saddened to hear you feel this way towards your experience here, we are pleased to know that we are ideally located for you within Cambridge.  We would like to thank you for taking the time to leave a review and we will look at the issues you have raised as a property team to address these to higher standards moving forward.

The only reason for social experience being marked down is covid! Nothing the building could have changed. The building is in such a good location, the rooms are nice. And the staff are the nicest people around, anytime you need anything and you’re not sure what to do, you can ask them and they’ll always try and help. The maintenance man is also lovely and super helpful. Would stay again!

A phenomenal team that work at the property, they can’t do enough to help you and make you feel like you have people invested in you and your university experience. I think especially during a time where emotions are high, your trapped in your accommodation and academic demands are still going strong the team have always made me feel happy, from wee chats in the hall, delivery pick ups at reception and any queries or troubles I experience. The accommodation is clean and modern, you are near everything you would need from shops to university to restaurants and to transport access. I enjoyed my time so much I came back for my third year, and I would highly recommend if you want to be in student accommodation but you don’t want the messiness that can come with student life. A five star vibe 🌟

Brunswick House has been a great place to stay while studying. Located a short walk from the main ARU campus getting to class on time was no issue. Similarly being located across the road from the grafton centre made catching a film (non covid times) or doing some shopping easy and hassle free. Meanwhile being so close to the river makes going for a walk easy, especially in the summer with the green and river a great place to relax and get some fresh air. The staff here are great, from reception to maintenance everyone is super helpful and easy to talk to.

I studied at a law school in the centre of Cambridge for two years, staying at Brunswick throughout. And I could not recommend it highly enough. My room (a normal double in a six-person flat) was spacious, good storage space, and a pleasant ensuite. The kitchen/social space in the flat was ample and the facilities in the kitchen fulfilled every need (fridges, freezers, microwave, grill, hob, oven etc). The internet (that comes with the accommodation) was also more than enough (I streamed videos, Netflix, Skygo etc and worked in my room a lot). I never had any problems with it. The whole building was great, clean, and accessible. The location was also brilliant: a few minutes from ARU and about ten minutes walk into town and with midsummer common on your doorstop. By far the highlight for me was the staff. They couldn't have been more helpful and were always there with a smile in case I needed anything. Couldn't recommend it highly enough!!
