Most helpful review

I suffer from a few medical issues, and the staff have been so helpful. Especially the night staff - one of them (Alps i think his name was) even helped me move my things from one building to another when I had issues with flatmates. The thing i really like which sets Student Roost apart from other accommodations is that they have a really personable human approach. We can talk to them any time.

Very helpful staff on site, especially the night staff. Its my first year here, so can't really complain as I've not lived away from home. What people say about there being no social space on site - we do have access to a 24 hour gym, kitchen for cooking with friends, a games room with air hockey, pool table and foosball table as well a cinema room and study space all available 24/7. I would deffinetly recommend Newarke Street as its so close to DMU and town.

Great accommodation, close to the city centre. Their have been a few maintence issues, but thats a given in a place so big. If you are looking for value for money - Newarke is definetly worth it.

The site location is phenomenal. It is only 3 minutes walk to my morning lectures! Improvements could be maybe a social space on site would be great! Whilst I know we can go upperton road for the facilities, somewhere nearer to my home would be a great feature. The staff are very helpful and always happy to assist you with any queries I may have

Although the expense of living here is quite pricey, I do appreciate that there is a washer/dryer situated in the kitchen and the location of the building is extremely satisfactory. However, on occasion there has been issues with staff letting themselves into, not only my flat, but my own bedroom without notice or previous warning, numerous times has this also been while I was asleep or had just gotten out of the shower. I understand some reasons as to why this can happen, but I would appreciate the respect of my own privacy which I thought I would've received anyway. It is also a shame that to access the social spaces; we must go to another entirely different location, and while I still haven't seen them myself I'm sure they're good.

One of the employees in Student Roost Newarke Street called Abdi has picked on me many times. At first he fined me for smoking in the room which i accepted then he started fining many more times for no reason and blamed me for things that my room mate would do. I also have video footage of Abdi saying there was smoking in my room and there was no proof of anything no smell no ash nothing and he said the toilet was a mess when i have video proof it wasnt. As soon as i took the camera out he said dont record and left. He has picked on me and my flatmate many times. Even for smoking cigerate outside and he sayings its cannabis. Also saying the kitchen a mess for a few bits of last night food. Constantly picking on us. Everyone else is very nice and respectful.

The accommodation is always clean and quiet. But there is no social atmosphere. I only know my flat mates no one else in the building. It would be better if there was a communal space where tenants can interact. The WiFi connection is poor and I end up using my mobile data

Overall very peaceful place to live. Run very professionally. Friendly staff. Just needs a common room in the premises for socialisation and needs better signal in rooms. Sometimes WiFi goes down aswel.

It’s a bit isolating as there aren’t any common areas in the blocks and the kitchens could really use a kitchen table to eat at. But the staff are amazingly friendly and helpful especially Abdi and always have a chat with you in the courtyard and makes sure you’re okay which is very different from other accommodations. Any faults and problems are fixed relatively quickly and when we were without hot water in our flat for a couple of days we were provided keys to a spare flat to use those showers etc which was the room next door which was amazing. The rooms are also very modern and clean. And the best bathrooms of any other student places I’ve seen.

Anna was amazing and so helpful! The flat was modern and spacious but the common room was too far to enjoy- it would’ve been better to have it on-site. Also being in the extension building meant no lift so on moving day and transporting heavy good was very challenging. I unfortunately was on crutches for a proportion of my stay and the stairs made it very difficult to get out of the flat. However I would recommend sulets and Newarke street to anyone! Thank you Anna!
