Chapel Heights is an amazing accommodation for any students coming to Durham or looking for new housing for next year. Located slightly past Claypath, it is only an 8-minute walk or so until town square. The staff is amazing, especially Sam and Georgia, and they continuously throw the best social events throughout the year. The rooms are fully furnished and look brand new, so the slightly higher cost than a worn down apartment around Durham city is worth it. Overall, I can say I have had a pleasant experience living at Chapel Heights for the past two years as an international student.

For the amount of money that is required to live in a studio at chapel heights, the bare minimum you would expect is for everything in your studio to work, or be repaired as soon as possible. Two and a half months into living here, I have yet to have a working bathroom extractor fan which was known to be broken before I even moved in. Also there is poor communication regarding repairs. For instance I would receive an email saying maintenance would be happening in my studio, yet no one would appear throughout the day, and I would not receive further information regarding why this is the case. Another example is my building was left without hot water (including heating) during late October for nearly 2 days, and without alternative facilities. It wasn't until midday of the day after the hot water stopped working that we received an email saying that it would be fixed in a few hours. However it wasn't until the day after that the problem was solved. This is not good enough!

Great living space but difficult to interact with others, lots of Chinese students who are anxious to talk to Brits.

Given the amount of people who live in Chapel Heights, there could be a bigger laundry room (only 3 washing machines/ dryers). However, apart from that the accomodation in wonderful. Problems are sorted fast (such as boilers breaking etc.); the buildings are always warm, so even with if theres a cold winter you don't have to worry about being cold, which if you've lived in some of the other student accomodation in Durham, you'll know is a huge plus. Glide internet can be a bit glitchy, and it doesn't always connect well on the tv, so watching Netflix etc. can be a bit hit and miss. However, if you are looking for an alternative to college, or don't want to try and find a houseshare, I would definitly recommend the accomodation. It's only 15 minutes from Elvet Riverside/ centre of Durham, probably around 30 to the Science Site (if you walk).

I really enjoy living here. It’s cozy, quiet, everything is new and clean, there’s always staff around to help out or answer questions. I like that there’s a smart tv in my room! Even though it’s not officially part of any of the universities, you still feel like you’re a part of the university community.

Really nice rooms - tons of space even with the medium-sized studios. and tons of lights and areas to plug stuff in, with a sizeable amount of storage. Chapel Heights also does a lot of free social events (free food & drink woot woot!) and there's always something interesting (or appetizing) going on throughout the week. The common room is quite large and the chairs are 10/10 in terms of comfort. Only slight issue is that it's a slight treck to the science site but it's 10 mins from the town and even closer to the GP so that's definitely a plus. If there's any issues going on in the room you can easily report it and you'll be provided with support quickly. The staff is really friendly and the common areas are always really clean. Definitely would recommend.

Absolutely great rooms and super friendly staff! One time I set the fire alarm off (I left my homemade crisps in the oven for too long) and the security guy immediately came to check if everything is all right. So you really feel secure and safe, even if you are living alone! There are some problems with the wifi service at the moment, but the staff is doing everything to fix it. They are very friendly and helpful and the rooms are just perfect for a student! Absolutely recommend it!!!

All staff is very helpful and friendly and there's staff on-site 24/7. Facilities are excellent. Room conditions and design are perfect. However, wi-fi signal is very poor, almost unusable.

The wifi speed was quite erratic at times. Could be improved. Also found it very disappointing that staff does not help with removing garbage from room and CHARGES students if garbage or left over stuff is found in rooms on moving out day. Had to move tons of garbage on my own while it was raining the day before I permanently left chapel.

So, overall experience is great! Very kind and supportive staff. Events are super nice. I won Easter competition of over 30 Easter eggs. Rooms looking super luxurious. Especially bathroom with huge mirror. Location is super nice for both who likes quiet and loud environment. You can get both in 5 minutes walk.
