Read The Residence Reviews
The Residence is high-standard new student accommodation. The rooms have a very good size for one person and feels quite spacious. The layout of the room is smart enough and some of them they are towards to the Coventry Canal. The staff members here are very helpful and always try to make us feel at home. They organised online activities and competitions to make us have fun and keep the residence engaged. Every day there is a caretaker, who keeps the building common areas clean and is always available to fix small problems in the rooms fast and reliable. Also, we have access to a gym, a cinema room, and a common area where we can play ping pong or pool. The accommodation is 10 minutes walk from the city center. Very nice location with good-sized studios and rooms.
This is prestige accommodation as it states, could not fault anything with the room it is perfect for me and the staff are always really friendly and greet me with a smile every time I come in, I would recommend this accommodation to anyone
Due to lockdown rules yes we aren’t allowed no guests but why is it me they are knocking when there’s so many other people. I have been bringing in people for the longest and it’s only now they want to say. I pay over £3000 to be isolated, listen if people are allowed to bring in guests so why cannot I? During this time I need people around me if you can’t understand that then.........you will not affect my mental health just because boris said “NO”
Nice, luxurious, spacious rooms and building is in a nice quiet area. The balcony in my room helps me enjoy fresh air without going outside. The friendly, easy-going staff help with bringing up parcels and have kept residents engaged during the pandemic with fun online activities where prizes are won. Highly recommend.
The residence is the cleanest place I have stayed in during my time at Coventry university. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. They are able to help you with any issues you have and answer your queries fast. The accommodation is modern and has everything you could need. The location is perfect with only 5 minutes and you are in Coventry’s town centre.
Private studio is comfortable , clean ,well-equipped ,however, I paid for a room with a balcony , and unfortunately no balcony was provided.I was given a frontal room with no privacy. Poor crisis management with slow responses to requests. No refunds are provided during this pandemic ,which was quite surprising and disappointing. They would knock the door and if you don't open it quickly they would just enter it by themselves!!
Mixed feeling . This is a beautiful location to be at , and everything looks neat . But the social spaces are awfully small . Their very few washing machines - the staff ( thou they are really nice ) were only available at the reception from 9-5 . And are not there on weekends . I enjoyed staying here . But the way it lead up to it was frustrating . We were in an assumption that the property was completed so when we came in we were made to stay in an hotel which was hectic but we were promised that all our expenses will be paid for . Which to date we haven’t received , it’s been 4 months . And also don’t forget your key - you are charged £57 . For them to just unlock your room ( not for new key ) just for them to tap their master key . Probably should get used to hearing “ by the end of the week “ .
Covid-19: They social places have been locked out. I don’t think there can anything else that could have been done . And there are no receptionist anymore . So have to collect your own parcels and letters are often not delivered .
