Merlin Heights, situated in the heart of Leicester, the student accomodation is close to many shops making the overall living experience manageble. The aesthetic of the building, both in and out is modern and very satisfactory - value for money. The staff at reception are always friendly and very welcoming. They ensure you receive the best experience by sorting your deliveries and mails accurately for your collection. The cleaning staff are friendly, as well and they maintain the building in a tidy condition. The social spaces, such as the games room were inaccessible due to Covid restrictions, but when accessible, they were a fun place to hang out with your flatmates. Overall, a great place to stay. I certainly appreciated the hospitality I received.

Despite the covid situation, I have had a good year here at merlin heights. I’ve met a lot of good friends and the management have been amazing. The only downfall was not being able to use the social spaces as much as we’d like to, which is no fault of anybody’s of course. The location is great

Reception staff are so lovely and helpful, and have also tried their best to get students involved with virtual activities even through COVID. Never had any problems with security or being too loud etc. The studios and bathrooms are also very modern, spacious and include the main amenities. I’d definitely recommend this to anyone even after their first year of uni! I’ve stayed here for my final year and have had a very good experience!

As a first year student at DMU I feel that Merlin Heights is the best option considering the price and the distance from the university, it also has very good facilites such as the Sky lounge to chill out and watch films and the games room being my favourite because of the pool table. The rooms and kitchens are perfect for a first year student too as they are nice and spacious and cosy with a nice modern touch. The staff are also very helpful and polite and make sure your questions are always answered.

As a first year student I can’t recommend merlin heights enough, meeting friends has been so easy as well as settling in, the rooms are the perfect size and so cozy in the evenings, The staff personally for me were very helpful and are available to help and ask questions 24 hours of the day, washing facilities are close to all blocks as well as the sky lounge and games room, I use the sky lounge most days to study when not on campus, the best thing about staying here is you are a 5 minute walk from city centre meaning bars and clubs and under 10 minutes to de Montfort university, over all I have had an amazing experience here :)

As a first Year uni student I feel that Merlin heights was the best accommodation compared to all other Uni accommodations in Leicester the staff are always polite and helpful and couldn’t be any better. The facilities at Merlin heights are very good, with the games room being my favourite because of the Pool Table, also the rooms and kitchens are perfect for any first year student as they are very modern and feel cosy.
