Read CityBlock Marton Street Reviews
Living in CityBlock Marton Street is being a great experience. The residence is very well situated, in the centre of Lancaster, the facilities are suitable and I feel like at home. I can use the shared kitchen to meet other students. The room and common spaces are clean and you can get parcels at the lobby or order food and get it delivered. I like very much my room and the place is quiet to study.
Living in CityBlock Marton Street was great (even during the pandemic). I guess a lot depends on the people that you live with, but the facilities are great, and the environment is really good for meeting people and socialising. The shared kitchen for superior en-suite and superior-plus en-suite occupants are great for socializing. Other benefits are: good cleaning staff (shared spaces and room cleaning); on-site launderette, and a reception which during normal times functions well, meaning you can get parcels any day of the week (not weekends though). The rooms are good too (the beds are small doubles), and the environment is not bad for studying either (the lights are good enough for reading). In addition, the location is great -- in comparison to Penny Street and Gillows, I think Marton Street is most central. This is of benefit if you party at Glow Rooms, as it is extremely easy to get back later. If you have a car, there is also a car park nearby where you can park it.
