denton holme offers a superb new build, with shared x2 bathrooms and 9 or 12 bed flats! The rooms are spacious with lots of storage and 3/4 size beds, 2x pin boards, hooks, plenty of plugs, wardrobe, draws! Anything you can ask for! The kitchen is decent sized with decent facilities, open plan with a living room and dining area big enough for everyone! 2 decent sofas, plenty of room and all equipment (iron, mop etc) provided! If anything breaks just give grev a call! Class man! The hub is bulls**t, the staff are over envolved, weekly inspections of impossible criteria for a student home, charges for anything! The washing facilities are ridiculously expensive and only 7 washers and dryers for around 300 students! There are 6 blocks of 5 flats in each and you become friends with everyone around you! Security all the time, they are strict but also good at their job! It is about 1.3miles to the uni, so a trek! And around 0.8 miles to town! Town is tiny, but hey it's carlisle!

Had a great year at DHSV! The rooms are modern and comfortable. The houses are a perfect size so there are enough in the house to be social but not too many that it is overcrowded in the communal area. Short trip to either campus, and there is a bus that runs right from outside the site. The staff on site are great and really helpful.

I was very happy here and can recommend. Good value for a new build and beats a scabby shared house any day of the week.

Denton holme student village is a modern above standard place to stay whilst at uni. If somthing breaks, it get fixed. Problems with housemates, the management will help best they can. Rooms are spacious and ideal for studying/living in. Beds are an odd but comfortable spacious size (great for when you have someone over for the night!) Onsight parking too. I would definitely recommend living at denton holme student village.

Modern accommodation with good layout etc, friendly helpful staff. Laundry is too expensive in my opinion and it's a bit of a trek to uni. House of 12 people is too many really but could be worse

Denting Holme is f*cking shut felt like I've been at prison for the last year. 0/10 look for private accommodation all the university provided ones are sh*t.

Good, but could be better. The Hub and Staff are great and work really hard. Location is mediocre. Denton has takeaways and Co-op but a bit of a trek to Brampton Road (40 min walk, 20 min cycle) and half the distance for Fuse Hill. Don't forget anything you break or damage in the house, will quickly be replaced but you'll be charged for all damage. All in all, great student accommodation, great room size, great lounge area with TV and sofas, better than any other student accommodation compared to other universities I have seen.

Denton Holme hasn't been good. The day before moving in I was told I wasn't allowed the room I was allocated on the bottom and got put on a 4th floor, also the 3/4 beds that were listed on the website are not 3/4, they are single. But once moved in, I got used to the house and room. Very clean and tidy with good showers. We've been having constant boiler problems due to pressure leak that they wont fix, which means calling them out to reset the boiler or calling the 'out of hours' number to wait 2 hours for someone to come reset the boiler very often. Wifi problems are a constant and pretty much everyone is suffering with these and apparently been on going for a few years and they're not doing much about it. Management are strict, not allowed extension cables, House checks every week for example. Social life here is not too great either as many people/houses like to keep them selves to them selves. The place looks nicer than the other accom but not as great as it seems Im afraid
