So I lived here in 1st and 3rd year and I loved both times. In my year out of CODE they renovated all of the communal spaces and the new ones look amazing and are way more spacious. There are regular events that I attend with my friends and I always looked forward to the welcome party at the beginning of the year! The site is cleaned Daily and you can see De Montfort Campus outside of your window if you live on the river side. The on-site security is always reassuring with Sandy acting like a father to every student who lives there. The on-site Cafe is cheap and the food is always great, I found that I'd regularly make friends in the Cafe with others looking to order food.

Q&A


Q
How many flats are in Code on western Rd?
By member1165244 On 7th January 22
Q
Why did you rip my son off £400 & cancel the booking.!!! The £100 deposit we can accept but to keep the £300 room deposit for damages etc is totally outrageous has prevented him from getting any other accommodation because you have kept his money. Disgusting example of corporate greed!!!!
By member549653 On 3rd July 20
Hi there, can you let me know a little more about why they kept your son's £100 holding deposit and £300 damage deposit, something doesn't quite sound right so would love to know a little more if possible?

Q
why are you still charging full rent when students are at home and won’t have used accommodation for 5 months!!!!
By member1247573 On 28th April 20
Unfortunately Code are private so are under no obligation to reduce the rent. I feel your pain as it also happened to me.

I've lived at Code for two years now and I've renewed my room for a third, I love it here! Having a studio is great for when you want your own space but then Code go out of there way to create a community by setting up events and get togethers to meet other residents. The staff are all lovely and with a 24 hour security team you can call with any issues, I feel really safe living here.

They tried charging me over £500 in damages and won't explain why, they manually disabled email replies (whilst telling you to email the same address if there are any issues) so you're forced to call them. Seems like this happened to a lot of residents, probably due to the owner wanting to extort residents as much as possible as they leave. My room was absolutely spotless and nothing was missing. Mains were turned off when I was absent so I am absolutely disgusted by how they operate.

This is literally the worst accommodation you could live at in terms of staff. They don't replace anything that is out of data and ruined in terms of furniture and living necessities. I know multiple people who have stayed there and their showerheads stopped working and they didn't fix it for weeks. Even with me, they didn't change my sofa even tho it was completely ruined. They charge you extra for electricity so ready your contracts, by far the worst uni accommodation I have experience and it has caused me a lot of anxiety because they think they can do anything and get away with it.

Worst place to stay at they honestly they harass you and your guarantors and threaten to take you to court. During this pandemic alot of private accoms gave 50% rent but code wants the full rent price even when your not living there. They only care about the money and I will be warning future people to stay away from this place. They honestly are so rude and disrespectful the way they come and knock on your door. There would be times they’ll even open it without your permission.

Whatever you do, DO NOT STAY AT CODE. During the pandemic they did not help financially whatsoever. I was forced to pay the final instalment for a room I was not living in due to government guidance as well as the fact we weren’t able to access any of the things we pay extra for such as the gym or cafe. After paying and moving out in June, in July I was contacted saying I owed £60. this was supposedly due them having to deep clean my matress (which would need to have been done anyway) and resurfacing my hob. When I left everything was perfectly fine in my room. They sent me evidence of their claims about what was wrong and it was clear nothing was wrong with the mattress of the hob but they made me pay anyway with threats of taking me to court. If you move into code you will be robbed!! It is not worth the price anyway and then they steal money from you after you’ve left. I hope this review stops the possibility of code stealing from people like they have stolen from me.

During covid-19, left the accommodation to go home before lockdown taking all my belongings. Meaning my room would be unused for over 4 months and unable to go back due to lockdown rules. However many accommodations in and around Leicester have cancelled the final instalment for students as they left, however code “monitored the situation closely”, as the situation got worse they still charged us the full amount despite on site facilities also being shut. Lack of communication, general lack of sympathy and consideration for tenants.

I Really enjoy living at code, the social nights are great for making friends and just generally giving yourself something to do, theyve really improved them and now theyre different each week! They have great facilities, a cafe and a gym as well as study rooms and communal spaces so really you dont have to go far for anything. Its close to 2 supermarkets and a short walk from campus. Town isnt far either! CODE is so nice compared to other halls, the location is quieter without noise from traffic ect when youre closer to the city centre, and i have a river view room which is worth it for the privacy,

A great place to stay. I lived here for 2 years and loved every second, the onsite gym was overused and saved me money on a gym membership, the cafe was a great place for a study area and movie nights were amazing.

Although time was spent in halls, I commuted to University most of the time. I would highly recommend halls to spend the most of your time with like minded people, have fun and be exposed to the University Culture.
