This place is a great mix of stuff that every student needs. First of all, the rooms are quite good. The prices of specific room types change every year but they seem worth it. The location of this building has the most advantages I must say. The uni is just 5 mins from here, and im surrounded by a lot of shops which makes my life 10times better . Not much vehicles come here, so it's pretty quiet, good for studying I am an international student so when I booked it before coming to the UK, it was like a leap of faith. But it turned out to be really good.

It's a good place to stay. The rooms aren't too expensive and it's well connected. However, some of the rooms are a bit small

Pillar Box is the best decision I have made for my graduation. This is the most convenient and value for money accommodation for students.

The location is very central and you can reach all the shops in the city centre in 2-10 mins. All the staff are very friendly and willing to help with your queries. They also check on your well-being regularly during COVID times. The studio rooms are quite spacious and have a big double bed and TV. However, the desk is a bit small for a student studying in the room every day. The social area includes a pool table, tennis table and some games. The social experience has been quite limited over the past year, but hopefully, it will get better once the restrictions are lifted. The site is safe with the staff being present on-site almost 24h a day. I have been living here for 2 years now and my experience has been positive so far!

So basically starting from the day I checked in, the room was not cleaned at all and after telling them everyday repeatedly the room was cleaned 2 weeks later. The behaviour of City manager after Collegiate’s takeover changed towards the tenants. The manager is not at all supportive with the clients. Manager is rude at a times while dealing with the situation. Also the complaints are not solved promptly by the managing team

Excellent house keeping service, clean common area, helpful staff. The only thing that could be improved is the garbage disposal area should apply pest control because flies sometime fly in my room
