Peak Court is amazing! This is my second year here and I have already chosen to live here next year. The rooms are so big and have plenty of desk space, and the en-suite toilet means that you can keep your own area as tidy as you like. The beds are so comfortable and there is room for storage underneath. The kitchens have everything you need to make an amazing meal and plenty of space, as well as having a dining table! There are poster boards for you to put up photos or notes as well as regular cleaners who come in a weekly basis to clean communal areas. I cannot think of any reason why you would want to go anywhere else! There is a smoking shelter, car park and bike shed which are all checked daily, and the presence of security or a member of staff almost 24 hours a day really makes you feel safe. Being a 10 minute walk away from the city centre and a 15 minute walk away from Lidl, it is situated perfectly with both bus routes coming past, and all campuses within walking distance.

Overall, Peak Court is a great place to live. The staff, including the cleaners and halls manager, are always helpful and kind. It's only a 10 minute walk into town and there's a bus stop to uni right outside.

Peak court is a great place to live. The bus stops to the main university campus and city centre are extremely close. The halls team are friendly and very helpful. The common room/lounge is a good place to hang out, play pool or table tennis in when waiting for your laundry to finish its cycle.

I’ve had such a great experience living at Peak Court this year, if I’ve ever had an issue management have managed to give me a solution in order to solve my problem. I have always felt welcomed and comfortable living here and all the staff are very friendly and are always up to have a conversation if you feel like you need one.

I’ve only been here a few months but I rate peak court so highly. I love the space in my room, the bed is great, the large desk space is so handy and there’s plenty of storage space. The en-suite bathrooms are so handy and easy to clean and also have good storage space. The kitchens are so well spaced and there is always enough for two cupboards per student, really happy at the fact that the kitchens come with kettles and a microwave as well. Cleaners come once a week and do a great job tidying up the space and they are all so lovely to chat too. The common room is a great space to meet other people in the accommodation and just kick back and hang out in, it’s available for renting out for private parties too. All the onsite staff are so lovely and always happy to help with any issues that you have. If you have any issues with your flat appliances maintenance will be sure to quickly get it sorted for you. The WiFi here is great and city centre is a 10 minute walk away.

This is my second year going into Peak Court and mainly because of the sense of community that’s created by staff and students. The location of Peak Court is central to everything and the heart of the city, it’s ten minutes away from the centre which means getting back on a night out isn’t strenuous, it’s 20 minutes away from the main Kedleston road campus and sports centre, which means it’s ideal walking distance. Peak court is one of the smaller accommodations which I personally think is perfect. The only downside I’d say to Peak Court is the washing facilities because there’s not as many machines so at peak times it can be hard to get your washing done - but, having said that if you find a time it’s not busy then they get the job done

In my first year, I really liked it at peak court. The staff are really friendly and welcoming. If there is a problem, they try to resolve it as quickly as possible. The place feels secure and has cctv cameras. The buildings are built in the shape of a semi-circle (If you visit, then you'll know what I mean), its better because it helps you feel safe, since strangers on the street can't get access to rooms. Also, if you're planning on getting an En-suite be aware that the showers are slightly cramped. En-suite rooms have around 4 rooms, andI think shared bathrooms have 5 rooms? The freezers are a bit small too, so make sure you don't buy too much freezer stuff or else you'll have nowhere else to put them. A bit of friendly advice; if you drive, you might have to buy a parking ticket at a car park outside the accommodation, since the parking spaces available may be taken by other car users. Also, if you're planning on staying here make sure to book quickly because spaces run out quick!

The halls themselves are generally good and by far the best way to start a first year at uni. The opportunities to make friends are fantastic. The social spaces are good and the common room has things to do such as play pool, get hammered and beat your mates at Fifa on the PS4. The halls are becoming expensive though and this is not good for new students especially given that these halls are nothing special for the price. The Internet is a bit annoying and perhaps they should move away from ASK4 (the provider). I only had one problem whilst staying here and that was damage to my car. I contacted the halls manager and they told me to contact the police, which I did. Nothing was done about this even though they advertise that they have security cameras and a secure car park. I would recommend that if you do have a car, don't stay here. It will be damaged by some jealous idiot! And you have to pay £300 per year for the privilege on top of the already expensive fees to stay there!

We were told that we would be given the flat for a certain price then they purposely held the contract until the new year so they could increase the price. We now pay £128 per week when we were promised £118. When arriving we were told that the cleaning cupboard would be in our flat, something they didn’t inform us about. They emptied it after we attempted to renegotiate the price because of this so they emptied it so we now just have a large cupboard in our flat which is empty, taking up space and redundant. The rooms could be described as coffins but are okay and are nice, bright and clean although the radiators only stay on for 20 minutes, the shower only has two extreme temperatures which after going to the manager about numerous times has still not been rectified. Other issues however have been rectified sharply and in all fairness the halls manager is very nice and laid back and happy for us to change stuff we don’t like. The WiFi speed is atrocious with speeds of 0.5MB/s

Think a lot of the bad reviews on here must be from people with a problem. I found my time pretty good here. Yes the wifi was crap but that's not really the halls fault - ASK4 are useless and halls should get rid of them. Staff were great with all the problems I had and sorted then quickly. My advice would be if you have a problem go talk to the hall manager who can help. Staff can only help if you tell them bout things that have gone wrong. Would defo return!

Terrible. Would never go back there again. Mentioned an Internet issue and it was never sorted for the whole time that I was there. We were charged for a cleaning service but we're required to make sure that the kitchen was clean before the cleaner came therfore making the service pointless. There was never any security around and the hall wasn't secure as you could get in without a fob through the car entrance. Noise complaints were not managed efficiently. Would not live there again.

Moving to a different place next year and nothing could convince me to stay. Always noisy and the wifi is terrible and after many complaints it still isn't working right and I have to connect using an Ethernet cable and have had to do so since the end of September. The rooms aren't warm enough . The showers go cold. We pay for a cleaner as part of our rent but are required to make sure that the bins are took out and that the kitchen is clean before they come. People are let in to our rooms without our permission also. I wouldn't recommend living here.

Good facilities that are cleaned regularly. Staff are lovely and easy to talk to however the building's windows need addressing as a lot of noise can be heard through them and also the blind does not cover the whole window so light comes in at night.

It's a nice place structural but don't expect to get any sleep on any of the student nights, i don't recommend if you're a third year (like me) ad have lots of work to do and in need of sleep. The walls may as well be made of cling film i can hear every word of the freshers signing drinking songs out of tune and wrong if you're gonna keep me up sing it right. The hall staff and cleaners are great, cant fault the staff just the structure

I thought that quite time was at 11pm and I have to be up at 7:30 sometimes for lessons. One night when my flatmate had to be up for 7 there was a party Upstairs and in the common room went on until 4am and she ended up missing her lecture because she was so exhausted. It has happened for 2 weeks now and I've let it slide a bit with it being freshers but there's no respect.

The only problem that i have is the fact that you can only have 2 devices connected to the wifi without having to pay for more

room is located near the chairs/smoking area which can become very loud at night time, and become not enjoyable due to the loud noise. However, overall experience in halls so far is good.

Management is really well done here, the halls manager and night staff know what to do exactly, even when there's water leaks in flats at the early hours of the morning setting the fire alarm off. They're very calm and coordinated.

Generally fine, but nowhere near worth the money they ask, and i got £700 discount. Going by the new price of £5500 (for 2015/16) it is no where NEAR worth it.

Peak Court is pretty quiet compared to Peter Hilton. The rooms are nicer but there is no social atmosphere there really.

Halls are great to live in, you get to meet new people, but also the rooms have ensuites so you still get privacy. The grass area means there is somewhere to sit outside when the weather is nice
