I can confidently say this would be the most horrible experience you can get as a student. Old, dirty, smelly, bad management, very unsocial mates, and people smoking weed and pot everywhere. I spent one education year in this place, and I can say by far, it was my worst year ever. Stay away, and rent a shared house.
Photos are MISLEADING. A lot of NOISE and LIGHT in the room. (sleep and reading issues) OLD and DIRTY building. According to these also is EXPENSIVE, maximum 20 pounds per week. (Easily can be a motel) !!!REALLY BAD CHOISE!!!
I can't recommend this place to anyone. I was doing a semester abroad in Leicester and found this place through the internet. Just to sum up a few things: 1. From the beginning they promised me I would be put in a flat with medical students. I ended up with only nurses, which is not the same. 2. My room was not clean when I arrived. 3. It's a very noisy place, but that is what you can expect from a student accomodation so wasn't too big of an issue for me. 4. It is so expensive for what you get. The apartments are quite small and I shared it with 4 other people. For the same price, I've got a whole studio for myself back home. 5. In the end, they substracted extra costs for the internet from my deposit, which is absolutely not how a deposit should be used. When I complained about this and showed them that my contract said it should have been handled beforehand, they just ignored me.
Myself and my flat mates have hard quite a lot of trouble with this accommodation. They haven't been the most considerate of managements. We're student nurses and as we asked to move flats due to noisy neighbours at night it took a lot of arguing for them to solve the problem. The actual accommodation is decent, if you don't have any problems you'll be fine.
