To put it briefly I would never live here again. Even though the price is great, my flat was extremely dirty when moving in and there where multiple damages within the kitchen and bedroom. My bathroom had sliver fish CONSANTLY as well as multiple different students finding them in other flats as well. Another student was blamed for mould growing in their flat while they weren’t even in area. To add to this at the end of my stay there was a bunch of charges I was not made aware of when moving in. And thing from tiny marks on the wall or a dirty fridge when moving will cost you a fine. Even though when I moved in the kitchen was flithy. Honestly suggesting that if any money was taken from students last year it didn’t go to cleaning. During my entire stay there where no communal areas and the ones they are only now including as students are moving out are nothing special. I would have picked a high priced accommodation if I knew these things. Just avoid it.
The staff here are absolutely lovely, 24 hour security, and a regular cleaner that pops through and changes the bins. Management are super friendly and check up on us all the time. I can't thank them enough for being so supportive and understanding during corona.
This is my first time moving away from home and I have moved whilst corona virus has been around. At first I was extremely nervous however people on site and Maria(especially) has helped me overcome that anxiety with corona. I can’t thank them enough for being so supportive and so welcoming.
Carr Mills is reasonably priced, well run and has a safe and secure gated entrance, with 24 hour security. It’s about 20 minutes walk from University of Leeds. Rooms are a good size.. There are student rooms in the main building and private flats in the former Mill building, so a mix of residents. Staff are nice and can be helpful.
I have been here about 2 weeks. The accomodation let me move one arly despite there still doing maintenance. This really helped me as very little accomodation would let me move in that early. They have been very helpful with me whilst ive been here and with covid they have been very respectful of people who are more nervous about getting infected etc. The overall place is very enjoyable to stay in.
My daughter stayed here last year 2019 - 2020. It was not her first choice and we hadnt viewed it on accommodation day. I had initial reservations due to poor reviews and wasnt looking forward to moving in day. How wrong I was. Whilst a few initial issues these were speedily sorted out and management couldn't have been better. Lovely and warm with large kitchen, lounge space with TV. My daughter had a fantastic time and there is nothing negative I can say. Well managed who hold student to account which I believe is a good thing. Lots of competitions to win prizes which was a nice touch. Well done, she would hesitate to return.
Good - View and location are good (trees and forest) if you plan on staying a year. If not then it doesn't matter, all you'll see is bare - They take the bins out for you. Bad - Management is shocking but the day to day staff are nice. I have been asked if my post had drugs in them and with later inspection, I saw that there was a rip in my package before I opened it. - Silverfish come up through the shower holes and cracks. - While the pandemic happened all private and non-private accommodations realised students in Leeds however Carr Mills did not which forced students to be away from their families during a crisis. - There is a lot of false action by management. They say 'we'll try' to sort out issues but try is a no. (Two of my flatmates couldn't stop fighting through the year. During the pandemic, one of them wanted to move to an empty flat to solve the issues. He ended up moving home instead :/ Guess why) - Coldwater after midnight, we pay for basic needs but don't get it
Very poor accommodation and would not recommend this company. They have been harassing and threatening for money when most of the other student accommodations have waived the last term fees or greatly reduced them. Do not waste your money on this company complete bandits
My daughter stayed here this year. Whilst not her first choice and initial reservations she had a fantastic year. Well managed and lots of interaction with students. Any issues resolved without quibble. Reasonable sized room with good shared space. Very well heated throughout -did think the heater wouldnt be suffucient but her room was always very warm. Good security.
