I'm currently in my second year having stayed here during my first and second year of university, and have rebooked for September to continue in to my third year. The staff working at reception are incredibly friendly and always looking out for residents. The on-site maintenance is also excellent with the staff always going the extra mile. Honestly can't recommend Calico enough - looking forward to staying next year.

Calico has brought together my group of friends. Four of us live here already, but we have gotten so close with each other and our mutual friends over a short period of time thanks to the social spaces Calico has to offer. I am so grateful to be living here!! I have improved my social life and gotten out of my comfort zone whilst living here. Thank you Calico Team :))

Such an awful experience. Lovely staff, however a lack of care. Continually both myself and my flat mate went to the staff regarding mental health and flat issues, inc issues within the property and was turned away. With a promise to have a duty of care I was very disappointed in the lack of help both myself and my flat mate received at that time. We went to them regarding health issues including a flat mate squeezing dirty mops on peoples food etc and other instances of bullying and were turned away almost instantly. Very disappointed especially considering the higher price for a student accommodation. Unsocial and struggled in this accommodation. Would not recommend.

When we arrived to Calico, we were met by an amazing sight of colour themed rooms and the cleanest hallways I've ever seen! The accommodation has study rooms to rival LJMU's with supreme noise cancelling. The staff and team are amazing and so kind-hearted especially Aidan who works reception. If we ever have an issue, we can tell them immediately. The rooms are HUGE [or at least feel huge with how they are layed out] and our studio even comes with its own oven, which most places do not. When you walk through your numbered door, you are in your flat. No shared kitchen, no thin walls between rooms and no awkward door and hallway traps for luggage. The Gym is free and has all you need, taking one more finance off your list. A cinema room and quiet spaces are amazing for comfort and quality. The lifts are speedy and the bins have no rats! There is a circuit laundry system too which is cleaned on rotation by staff! Honestly, if you are looking for luxury, come to Calico!

Coming from Ablett House to Calico was a big and needed change. We've got our own gym and the management is always happy to help and is super fast when responding to emails. The social spaces are beyond believable we could never be bored on a rainy day. Lidl is super close too which is good for the cheap bits we buy. Location is on the main road but the insulation of the windows makes sure we hear nothing! Sky lounge impressed my family and I can't wait to do some baking in it! The staff make me feel at home and I can't wait to live the rest of my years here

The moment the sun penetrates the horizon, it is attracted by a flash of dawn: the ground is still impenetrable black, the sky is a transition between orange and pale blue, and the grey clouds are reddish, though the sun is not there.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. Now we have been told after lock down we should move our stuff out, basically being forced out 3 months before end of tenancy.

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.
