the environment and facility of the accommodation is quite good. the public area is wonderful. it is comfortable to live here. besides, the staff is really nice and warm.
I live in calico for about 2 years, the staff is really friendly and the reception can help me solve many problems. It seems like my home and gives me a strong sense of belongings.
Amazing staff, so welcoming and always takes care of us! Caroline, Darren, Beth, Paul and Aiden are always on hand to help and are fantastic for a friendly chat and coffee. The flats and facilities are brilliant. Wouldnt want to live anywhere else. Could not recommend Calico enough!!!
Best accommodation ever, would definitely recommend to everyone! Big thanks to stuff, with them I feel like I live in a big family, very professional :)
I really love here, for students studying in Liverpool, I will recommend here instead of other student accommodation in Liverpool. Good facilities and good management, lovely room. Best in Liverpool, good value for money, considering its environment, location, facilities.
Enthusiastic officers and good conditions. The best accommodation have met.
Calico is the place to be the staff are so nice and the building is amazing
We love all the staff in calico, they are all greate
I love social spaces but the wifi doesn't work sometimes.
That's a great experience in calico. Every staff is really nice and friendly,they give me many help, and make here like a family. Every facility is new and easy to use.
Calico is a great, sociable accommodation, it has allowed me to feel comfortable as there are many social spaces on site along with great facilities. The location being a 15 minute walk from the town centre allows for easy travel to shops, for food and nights out. Also as calico is a 5 minute walk from my uniform campus at ljmu I can easily get to uninstall and back.
Nice environment and good facilities. Maybe a little bit expensive but Calico is a worthy choice
Moved in over a week ago now and the staff here are so friendly, welcoming and sort out any issues you have. The gym is great and the rooms are lovely with really good facilities! Definitely a Great choice. Highly recommend
I highly recommend Calico Apartments to everyone. Every staff at the reception desk is very enthusiastic and professional. Questions will be answered promptly and patiently. Many of my friends live here. The apartment has great entertainment facilities and a gym, reasonable room layout, large toilets, wide views, good sound insulation, and convenient services. If I return to Liverpool, I still choose to live here again！
Great place to stay with brilliant facilities, my bedroom is nice and the team are amazing!
Calico is sooo nice for students to live in during the semester! It’s close to Tesco, Sida and Lidl, bring convenience to our life!
clean with good facility and service. your good choice.
great service and environment. totally recommendation！！！
Block A, Flat 26, the space is fairly large especially for the price it sets. Decorations are all fresh and kitchen equipment is fashionable with good functions. Staffs here are kind and enthusiastic. We’ve received Christmas surprise and gift on that day.
happy to be here for my last year.
enviroment is good， stuff are nice！！！
Good location and management. Good facilities and wifi
Everything is perfect. I love Calico sooooo much！
Nice and cozy , a big bathroom and plenty of storage space. Best staff forever and cutest maintainer.
The service here is quite warm. And during the corona virus time, I feel protected and very safe with all the measures taken here. The equipment of the room is new and good.
Calico have a very good service. Thanks calico staffs.
Nice view and lovely staff🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰
Such a lovely place to live with the absolute BEST staff. Location is also amazing being so close to town and Lime Street station. The rooms are so nice and the gyms and social areas are literally better than any other accom in Liverpool. I have loved living here for the past two years!!
Such a homely place to live with the nicest staff who go above and beyond! Lived here for 2 years now and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else :)
Staff are super friendly if you ever need assistance, interact with residents frequently with competitions, bingo games etc. Location is brilliant for both universities.
Staff are really friendly and caring.
Outstanding! I have even chosen to stay here for another year. The facilities are amazing, the rooms are modern and spacious. Maintenance reports are acted upon very quickly (usually within 1-2 days) and the building is maintained very well. The staff are lovely and friendly; they’re always setting up events (even if they’re virtual) and give out freebies. The 24h security is great and allows you to pick up packages at any time. The location and facilities make it well worth the price. Highly recommended.
I rarely have a good time in calico. The bed is quite comfortable for me. And the dining room with the kitchen make me feel at home. And price is not expensive.Which quite suitable for a student.
The social space is great and the staff at the reception are nice. Rooms are adequately comfortable with the heating machine.
Really friendly and helpful staff, plenty of places to study and nice views from rooms.
Couldnt fault the staff, made a very enjoyable experience for the last two years! Would 100% recommend
Had a great year living here. The team is really kind and helpful. The social spaces are great and having a gym in the building is pretty cool
He was very patient and helped me take out the delivery. The staff in calico were very friendly
Very good student accommodation. Everything is new and well-prepared. Staff are nice and efficient.
The best student accommodation in Liverpool. I have been lived in here almost 2 years I just feel like I am at home. Everyone just take good care of me. And it’s nice building, new and comfortable
Very nice place to live, staff are so helpful!!
The staff are really lovely and friendly. If you ever something on your mind to talk about, they’re they’re to talk to you freely about anything no matter what. They’re very understanding to things, especially if your SFE loan is late. Any Maintenon problems and it’ll get resolved. The gym and cinema room is lovely. Especially the study area and the gaming area in the lounge. It’s really worth the money. The sky lounge is definitely a plus. I’m staying here again next year.
I Love Calico！ Nice living environment and the staff is very friendly and quick to solve problems.
Staff are really friendly and helpful. It’s a safe environment. Any maintenance work gets done fast. Rooms are lovely and spacious. Walls are thick enough that I can’t hear my neighbour. A bit on the expensive side but still a great place to live.
Very friendly staff, gym hard to book however lovely place to stay, very modern and good value for your money considering the facilities available.
Calico staff are some of the lovliest people I’ve met during my university experience. I was with them through most of lockdown when everyone else was at home and it really was a home from home. The building is lovely with wifi capable to manage online lessons with ease. Highly reccomended
Absolutely amazing service provided at calico. The team always go out of their way to help and especially throughout the pandemic they have provided top-level covid courteous customer service. Friendly and welcoming they’re always on hand with a smile and the kettle brewing
The reception staff are very friendly and I like them very much! Le personnel de la réception est très sympathique et je les aime beaucoup!
Calico's staff are very nice and helpful. I'm really satisfied with Calico' everything.

They are sooooooo good! They are very responsible and will help us deal with everything seriously.
Absolutely amazing staff extremely helpful and loved every second staying here, worth every penny! Definitely staying here next year :D
1. Gym is hard to reserve, and the method to book are changing without email notice. 2. Parcel could be check in in time on Sat and Sun. 3. At first accommodation time( first month), the staff came in room without knocking (by their card) 4. The staff are friendly and patient.
Good ，beautiful room，nice service，
Great friendly staff in the office. Great location and social spaces. Good onsite gym too
really good！The best apartment in the Liverpool! Really really good !
The staff are really kind and warm. Rooms are new and clean, and quite, also I like the decoration style. The location is a little far from business school of UoL, but doesn't take too much time.
Let's start with the 6 weeks not being able to move in and with ONLY 3 weeks being taken off. Put us in questionable accomodation. Strike one of their contract. Place got flooded (wowser) but still not sure why..boiler maybe. It's a new building so I'm like hmmm. Second, the place feels safe within my room but after requesting for my lock to be fixed, their reason for nothing to be done is the contractor has to come in and that the room doors have swollen. Then for my peace of mind they say it's okay. Strike 2. Strike 3 is how I rebooked with them and they asked for my guarantor but since I no longer want to live there, even with signing the tenancy agreement they claim I must find someone to replace it. First off, I don't lol because there is no guarantor signature... You're supposed to have a guarantor signature before a tenancy (breach of contract AGAIN). Please, itsy overpriced so do yourself a favor and not go to this place. I thought it was nice but they treat us like idiots.
Please steer clear of this s*** hole unless you love getting the absolute worst value for money possible.
To start, we were not being able to move in for a whole 6 weeks of our tenancy and only given 3 weeks off rent. Then my whole floor flooded as the boiler seemed to explode with steam and ruin a lot of our things. Now we have been told after lock down we should move our stuff out, basically being forced out 3 months before end of tenancy. I understand the last is not their fault, but to still expect us to pay our rent is ridiculous. Lots of other student accommodations have been sympathetic to the circumstances, but not this one.

Then my whole floor flooded as the boiler seemed to explode with steam and ruin a lot of our things. There was boiling hot water all over the corridor and in our flat, we were forced to evacuate in pyjamas and I burnt my feet on the water. A cleaner was sent in. She picked up my soaking belongings and threw them on the shower floor. Good job.

Calico DO NOT protect their students at all. Don’t recommend at all.
Such a mistake moving in here, problem after problem!! Not worth the money at all & they’re upping the price! The only good thing about this place is the location, anything else is a 1 star!
Hello All, Im a Doctor doing a Fellowship at Royal Liverpool Hospital. I will put the Pros below 1. The best living space by far that I have seen 2.Super friendly staff from A to Z 3.Staff has always been super efficient lead by the Manager Caroline ,Karen , Aiden,Scott, Adnan and even the cleaning ladies are super helpful and caring towards me. They went out of the way to accommodate me and some of my housemates even. 4.Location is ideal , views majestic and local grocery shops a stone throw away and my hospital “two stone throws away” 5.Amenities plentiful, one cant get bored here,table tennis, air hockey,playstations and even a gym , what else can one ask for. 6. Made loads of new friends , mostly students of liverpool uni, all very caring and respectful of each other. Cons 1. Slightly pricey , but a bargain when all of the above considered 2.Wish the weather could be better , not sure how Calico can fix that. I am sure nothing in Liverpool could beat what calico has to offer.
Booking Calico has been the biggest mistake I could have made. The accommodation wasn't ready in time for us to move in and despite the fact this was known for months in advance, we were only announced the night before our move-in date. The compensation package was inadequate. Once moved in, we have encountered plenty of maintenance issues such as leaks, water cuts, power cuts and loud pipe noises throughout both buildings. The security is absolutely rubbish, we have had 2 TVs stolen from the social areas, homeless people walking in and out of the buildings, no security whatsoever in Block B and inappropriate behaviour displayed towards students. The staff is clueless and unable to answer any query - my questions have been continuously met with "I don't know" or "There's nothing I can do". The facilities promised have only been open for a few weeks of the contract length yet we are expected to pay full rent. DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!
The worst experience I've ever had with a company! As the other review regarding Calico states, the building was not completed for the set move-in date in September 2018 and we didn't end up moving in until 6 weeks after this. During this time, communication from Fresh Student Living was the absolute minimum it could've been. We were informed the night before move-in that the building wasn't ready, as if that was an acceptable notice period. After move-in, there was nowhere in the bathroom to hang a towel or put toilet paper, and the floor was covered in paint and sealant. I pay £715 per month for my room. Fast forward to now, the COVID-19 pandemic is in full swing and universities across the UK have closed. When this happened, universities urged students to go home, so I did. Now, I'm living at home with my family, unable to travel back to Calico due to travel restrictions, but still being told nothing different than to pay full rent. Absolutely shocking experience.
Calico wasn't ready on time and they only told students the night before, or the day of moving day that it wasn't ready. Calico said that they didn't know it wouldn't be ready which is a lie as they told me a week before, and were moving me into another flat that was "ready". On move in day, that flat was no longer ready as nobody in the whole block was allowed to move in. There was so many maintenance issues, ranging from cupboard doors falling off, the fridge was broke when we moved in, the sink taps didn't work, the shower water pressure is abysmal, the toilet wouldn't flush, there was cracks in the ceiling that they wouldn't fix and multiple leaks and now mould by my bed. Students have vacated rooms due to corona and they can't get their money back while other accommodations have given refunds or discounts. It's run by foreign landlords for profit.LJMU have said they aren't in talks with calico over rent as it isnt even affiliated with the uni so don't waste your time. horrible.
Absolutely s*** accommodation to live in. Would not recommend what so ever. First of all the accommodation wasn’t built on time and we were put in temporary accommodation which wasn’t ideal because we ended up spending more money on transport etc. The accommodation got flooded at one point and now that we are in the middle of this Coronavirus pandemic they refuse to cancel our contracts. They seem to think it’s ok to pay for a place we aren’t staying in because we have “signed a contract” that they were in breach of to begin with.
Calico has been a big disappointment for many of us students, constant maintenance issues, late refunds and a failure to create an integrated student environment. We are now looking at other student accomodations compensating their tenants during this corona virus crisis, however we know for a fact Calico won’t do the same. It is these constant examples being show of why Calico fails to create a healthy relationship with their tenants.
Calico is an amazing new accommodation offering nothing but the best in terms of value for money. Located very close to the city centre it is slap bang in the middle of the student life in Liverpool. John Moores Byrom street campus is just a short 5 minute walk away. There’s loads of things to do within a short range of Calico. The management team go above and beyond for every one of their students and are always approachable and friendly to talk to about anything. A cup of tea and a chat is all part and parcel of the relaxed and inviting reception environment. The building is kept in top notch condition due to the diligence and commitment of the amazing cleaning/maintenance team who also have an approachable demeanour. From the picturesque sky lounge to the quiet study spaces the social spaces in Calico cater to all types of people. The 3 gyms also remove the need for an excuse to get fit in the gym which is always a positive. What makes it even better is that they are no extra cost.
So after living in calico for about a month, I can say that I’m not quite enjoying the accommodation. The sound proof in the sky lounge is absolutely rubbish, people in there always party and play loud music which was really affecting me, I can even hear people talking in there while I was in my room so you can imagine how annoying it is. So my advise is don’t book a room that is near the sky lounge. Also, the staff didn’t really help, they told me that the sky lounge is closed after 23:00 but I always hear people in there until midnight . And also told me that only staffs have assess to the sky lounge but I’ve seen a lot of people walked in there without a staff taking them in . I hope they will do something about it because this is so stressful.
