Do not choose Callice Court!!! The owner has changed and since that the communication is really tragic. First, there were rats in one of the blocks and it took a long time to get a reaction. After that there was a fire and again the communication completely failed. I didn't receive any information about the fact that they are relocating a whole block to another halls. If I didn't notice that myself and asked at the reception I wouldn't even know. Moreover the accommodation that they relocated us to was 1,5h walk away from the campus. The communication was awful, because in the beginning they told us that it's only for max. 3-4 days. It turned out to last a week which made the whole situation even more complicated because some of the students decided to stay with their friends, but they had to leave after 3 days. At least they reimbursed the travel costs.Now with covid-19 there's no information about the last instalment, whereas other halls released students from contracts.
Callice court was a usually mediocre accommodation for the majority of my first semester at Coventry, until someone left a tea light out and burnt down the entire fire alarm system. Since then, the systemic and borderline institutional inadequacies that have been in place to manage Callice Court have been exposed. Whilst the accommodation is located very close to the university, this makes it to harder escape the overwhelming sense of money being literally poured down the drain in front of your eyes everytime you enter callice. The bathrooms are cheap plastic and the bedrooms are cold all year round. The mattresses are squeaky and the stoves work 30% at best. The staff do their best with the extremely meagre resources they are given but this does not stop you from feeling as though they treat you with little more respect than the rats they had to nuke only a few months ago. I would recommend Callice highly if you enjoyed arguing with staff and having your stuff go missing randomly.
If you’re a student looking at coming to Coventry University, DO NOT BOOK CALLICE COURT I’m remaining anonymous as I still live here at the moment, but we have had so many problems. Firstly, none of the rooms had been cleaned before our arrival (including the lovely vomit stain in the corridor), appliances such as broken extractor fan and fridge were reported on the 2nd week and are still yet to be fixed in the 8th. At least 2 blocks were infested with rats, and our noise complaint about the floor above was wholly ignored. Furthermore, they removed our recycling bin and threatened us with fines because of a half full bin. We’re fairly certain the fire alarms don’t work, we haven’t had a single fire drill and none of our appliances have been safety tested. THE WORST PART is despite all this and despite us paying over £150 a week for these frankly appalling conditions, they have just now introduced new nonsense ‘safety regulations’ and are treating everyone like schoolchildren. Shameful
Within 2 weeks of joining Callice court my toilet was broken causing a loud noise throughout the night, my fridge stopped working and my food went off, when asked for someone to immediately fix it so my frozen food was okay they said it was not an emergency and may be fixed by tomorrow. After getting locked out of my apartment by a broken door lock for 1 hour and 15 minutes missing part of a lecture with no shoes or phone I have decided to leave this review of my past 2 weeks, disappointing.
Staff are useless, 'security' just grunt at people because they are security and they are well hard (of course). Place is a dive and it should be made illegal how unite take advantage of students. For the rent here for a tiny room, you can get a flat in town. Dont feel obliged to stay here because they spam you with emails, the place isn't full this year and there's a reason why. Absolutely hate it, waste of money, smells like a drug den, full of kids screaming, walls are super thin and if you leave your course early, you will still pay the outstanding rent, so over £6000 for the uni year. Do not do it.
For Callice court including laundry and laundry powder will set you back about £600 a month so your loan is gone. For a bedroom in a house is going to cost you 350/400 a month including bills. What do you get for that price difference? Well let me tell you... You get guaranteed zero sleep, because the kids in this place have never herd of quiet. You get your own personal scent of weed as it will follow you around the halls 24/7 (security are useless). You get a few pool tables... Fantastic you may think... Wrong... It would pretty much count as a youth club. your 18, like to be loud, do drugs and cause a mess then this is the perfect place for you. If your a student that likes to spend time studying, going out if your going to have a drink and would wake up to the screaming concert then take my advice and stay as far away from this accommodation as you can, it's an absolute rip off.
I found clumps of hair in the carpets, broken doorknob, corners of the bed were duct taped, foul BO embedded into mattress, mould in the bathroom, something exploded in the microwave and wasn't cleaned. This may have been the problem of the previous tenant but it should have been dealt with before I moved in, and that is what the deposit is supposed to be for. I had to move rooms in the middle of the contract due to renovations despite paying for the entire year up front, which was inconvenient for me as I had to drag all my belongings down 2 flights of steep and narrow stairs, only to drag them up 3 more. They did not give me a choice of which room I would be staying in although many other rooms were empty, and put me in a studio room. Which to me was great as they said that I would not need to pay any more fees for it. After I moved out, I discover that they took my deposit without letting me know, and it was to "cover costs of the room in which they moved me to". DON'T BOOK UNITE!
Just spent my first year of uni in Callice Good things: Great location, large accomadation so lots of people to socialise with, car park, reasonably good for response to being locked out, good sized rooms, cleaners do always do a brief tidy of kitchens and clean the hob and oven well, good laundry room (once you actually figure out how to use the app for the machines) Bad things: Had lots of rats all around the car park for the majority of the time I was there, when you have visitors coming in cars they can only be in the car park for 15 minutes or they will get a fine, quite dated, unite takes advantage of students with the deposits trying to get as much money out of you as they can even for scuffs on the walls (photograph EVERYTHING when moving in and out), very expensive, crap wifi, flats are often very noisy which staff don't do anything about, empire club backs onto the car park which is again very noisy
I have so much to say about Callice, but my greatest criticism is for Unite directly, not Callice Court. Unite is a money-grabbing, abusive company that takes advantage of vulnerable students who are new to the rent-paying world. The feedback I have heard from many students is that they lost out on so much of their deposit return because of the ridiculous excuses Unite used to take that deposit. Things like 'noise complaints', 'mishandled furniture', 'broken appliances', these are things that they kept no record of. Unreliable appliances they chose themselves and yet still have the nerve to claim students are breaking them. I am sure there are cases where it is students to blame, but many times, they have been wrongly accused. I have only come across this issue after living at Callice for a month or two, I was unaware of the danger Unite poses for students deposit payments.
Heater did not work from the time I moved in, and it took management 2 whole months to fix it. Walls are very thin too, it was especially tougher during the exam period when next door neighbour liked to play his music out loud. Reception sometimes wasn't very helpful, took them a long time to solve a single issue.
Stay away, the flat is expensive why are we paying the same as brand new far superior flats in gosford gate??, disgusting actually moved us in with the word c*** wrote on the wall and stains everywhere my complaint has been open for 2 months no action done, electrics don't work properly, they closed my case but the lights still don't work. What are these £99 extra fees each month?? filthy, clears cant really polish a turd so what is the point of having them (no offence to the cleaners just the whole place needs renovating. Noisy the flats are next to the empire nightclub and you can forget sleeping also nothing is done about neighbouring flats making noise. My room still stinks of actual s*** and I can't figure it out. I have been ill since moving in 3 months ago. Would really love to cut my stay short if only there wasn't a tenancy agreement. Oh and I paid extra for faster internet its a myth the free package gets the same speeds and are nowhere near the speeds advertised.
The room and flat is very nice and having an en suite is always nice. Also it is close to all of the university buildings. However that's about as far as the advantages go to living at callice court. The reception staff are terrible at taking packages for you in the post and the wifi is constantly going offline. Also every night there is loud music coming from various different flats and the staff do nothing about it. In addition to this it costs a lot more than other accommodations in Coventry (my loan doesn't even cover it) and I really don't see how cause it doesn't come with any of the extras that some others do.
Great place to stay, the WiFi's not so good but I'm not even on my PC nearly as much as I used to be. Everybody is so social and fun to be around and the staff are amazingly friendly. I love this place, I want to come here again next year but it's only for first year students. Nevertheless, I strongly recommend callice for first year students!!!
Best location and the best halls for a social experience. Internet is great and having the en-suite bathroom is always nice. Common room has a couple games, table tennis being the most fun, and sky TV. Only let downs are the laundry room (circuit laundry sucks) and the design of the whole place is pretty old so looks a bit dated.
I had no problems whilst living in Callice, made amazing friends and loved every minute of it! However reception staff are not always helpful (some of them, anyway) and whilst I never experienced any real problems with the wifi, some of my friends often complained.
Had some issues with flat mates and we had a lot of trouble with the management about it! Nothing was done about it until the very last month of Uni, so not a very happy ending either! Also the room was dirty when I moved in, but generally I think that was because I was placed in on eof the oldest and furthest block. Block D, is also the only block without an lift, so you don't want to be on the top floors! Aside from that the location is great for early mornings, and the student atmosphere is definitely there!
So noisy! Cant get any sleep. Dont ever ever book a room in the blocks near the club empire.. The music is so loud you wont get any sleep even if you are wearing proper earplugs. Close to the uni though. Very expensive.
I'm a first year and I'm living in callice. It's super close to uni which is great, and I love living in halls! However, I would 100% not recommend callice! The staff are terrible! If you need help with anything at all you won't get any! The value for money is awful, my whole loan goes on paying for this place and I don't really see where is goes. I had a complaint about my next door neighbours as they played extremely loud music every single night! And through my exam periods it was so difficult as it kept me up all night long but they did nothing although they claimed they did. DONT BOOK CALLICE!
