This place met all my expectations. I share a silver studio with my boyfriend and I am sure it was a very good decision. The flat is so big that we have placed a second desk in it without any problems. The entire building is super safe and student-friendly.

It has been an amazing experience to stay in Alma Court. The rooms are very good size, reception staff are very friendly and helpful. Social areas are clean and the building as a whole has an amazing decoration and atmosphere. It would be great if it had a parking space. The only isssue was we told staff our kitchen radiator and it still isn’t fixed, but hey, it’s end of march now. Apart from that, clean, good size and friendly environment.

Alma court so far has been a good experience, the building itself is clean and it has a well equipped social common room. It's very close to town and right next to the bus stop to go to both universities.

Everything about Alma Court is great. The staff and other residents are very welcoming and are really supportive. There are lots of social and study areas, where wifi is available. There are also events being hosted by the staff, which makes this accommodation special from others.

If you're looking for a place to stay in Canterbury, this is the place to go. It's close to CCCU and Canterbury center, and the bus and train stations are only a 5-10 minutes walk away. Most importantly, the accommodation is really secure, and receptionists (Emily and Lauren) are both amazing and regularly organizing social events that make us feel like we aren't alone at all. I strongly advise you to relocate to Alma Court.

Very poor maintenance of rooms. Very rude security. WiFi cuts out near enough every week with no service in the flat. Forced to pay full rent when I havent been able to live in my own flat due to a leaking roof.

- Lovely staff. Very understanding - Clean environment - Centralised yet quiet location. Near all the necessary shops - Friendly people Pitfalls: - WiFi works but 0 service which can be inconveniencing. But still liveable. - Wouldn’t consider the gym a gym. But it is useful I guess.

Alma Court is a very nice place where to live as a student. Rooms (studios) have plenty of space, just the bathroom is a bit too small if you are sharing the studio but that’s fine. I love living here

It is an amazing place if you are looking for an accommodation in Canterbury. Emily and Lauren, they are both amazing and regularly host fun social events so that the residents meet with each other as we are not on campus. I would reccommend Alma Court and could assure you that the team is extremely helpful. Definitely consider it!

Couldn’t review the social aspect adequately the main problem is paying the price we do for the social spaces however we can’t use them. The staff are sweet and help a lot as I have poor mental health and have always been understanding.

Management and people are helpful, friendly and get to know you Social Spaces and gyms are great I love the pre recorded classes to access on Access to weights and exercise bikes The gym would be even better if a running machine, cross trainer and boxing bag was added Arrival could be improved by providing instructions of how to use oven, heater etc A residence WhatsApp chat could be used to meet other people Mold on windows taken ages to be sorted

It was expensive for what I ended up experiencing. While the accommodation is very well done I’ve had nothing but problems. My wifi regularly turns itself off and the one time it didn’t turn back on it took over a week for them to get someone in, which was a week of uni work missed. The oven in my kitchen blew a fuse and turned all the lights and half the electrical items in that flat off and the out of hours team didn’t deem this an emergency when they wouldn’t turn back on, this happened on a Friday night so I had to argue to get someone out on the weekend as they planned to wait till Monday at the earliest. One of my windows has a small air leak so my room was always cold through the winter and instead of getting someone to look at the windows they just gave me a plug in heater which only made a small difference. The flat is also covered in paint stains from when they were decorating. The walls also seem very thin so it’s easy to hear people banging about in the flats near yours.
