Most helpful review

This residence is the perfect place to stay. Only 15 min walk from the city centre and la y food shops nearby. It is a very quiet place to study and the common area is perfect for hosting small meals between students. What I remember most about my experience as a foreign student is the incredible kindness of the stade Juliet, Debra and Kevin. They are always available, helpful, friendly and very dedicated. Everything is done in the residence to make the student feel comfortable. The wifi connection has also been changed to be more efficient. Although this year was very challenging because of COVID, many activities were organized throughout the year with all the necessary precautions. I can only recommend this residence and the fantastic staff who will help you to enjoy your stay. My heart is full of wonderful memories of my year in Durham at St giles thanks to the whole team and my new friends.

What a fantastic review, I'm so pleased you enjoyed staying with us. We try our best to make you feel comfortable and happy whilst here so im over the moon we suceeded. You were a little ray of sunshine whenever you passed by the office and you are missed by the staff and other students. It was such a shame that we couldn't organise more social events, but what we did manage was such fun.

I had a great year at St Giles Studios! The staff were very welcoming and friendly, and despite the covid, did their best to organise fun activities. The studios are modern, clean, and the common areas are nice if you want to relax. The residence is a 15 min walk from the centre of Durham, and shops such as Sainsbury’s and Tesco are close by. I would definitely recommend this student accommodation!

It was a pleasure having you stay with us and we loved you calling by to say Hi. You will be missed at the little get togethers, I just wish we'd had chance to host more. Thanks again for the great review & good luck with your future studies.

In my opinion, this is a good student studio, though it is not a modern style. People here are very kind and nice, and the staff are here to help. I think people can stay focused here if they wish to have a good grade! Good place for rest and study.

Living in St Giles is a wonderful experience. It's just a 10 minute walk to get to the city centre, with bus stops and supermarket just a minute away. Very safe and quiet area. Also, only 10 minutes away from a Tesco Extra. Rooms are very spacious, and personally I love it that I can have my own bathroom and kitchen. Staff members are always here to attend to all our needs. Various events are organised for all of us even during the pandemic (with all safety precautions). In my opinion, it's a wonderful choice of a studio flat for any student.

A lovely place to live with friendly and accommodating staff! Perfect location with large supermarkets a 10 minute walk away (and smaller shop across the road!), quick walk to get down to the river, and only a 15/20 minute walk into the centre of town. (Social experience score is only lower as a result of the restrictions in place due to Covid-19, so not a true reflection).

It is a good value for money to live in St Giles. And it is convenient and quiet. One of the possible shortcoming is the lack of a gym in this accommodation.
