38 Callice Court Reviews
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!
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 cunt 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 shit 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.
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.
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.
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!
