I used to stay in one of the studios at Mary Parker for one year ... I have to say it was a nice experience , It’s close from the Main Campus around 10 min walk ...The Stuff are Friendly and The Maintenance team was good and used to fix my issues quickly... There is Spar , Tesco and Co-op Supermarkets in a walking distance. It’s in a good quiet and safe neighborhood and my flat mates where not noisy . I would love to come back to Mary Parker again in the future. I recommend it specially for first year and international students .

I have also lived in university halls in the student village and Mary Parker is so much better in comparison. You get lots more for your money and the staff have been absolutely lovely. Would recommend!

Would have been 5 stars for most but social spaces were closed due to Covid, which meant I couldn’t use all the facilities or meet as many people as hoped. However staff were nice and the flats/ rooms were well maintained.

Living at Mary Parker House for the past academic year has been an absolutely delightful experience! All the staff are so friendly and helpful and strive to make MPH a convenient and comfortable place to live! They were understanding and helpful when I had to book an extra week before the start of my contract and delay payment of the 1st instalment until I had received my student finance payment. Maintenance is always up to date and any reported issues are dealt with properly. You can always rely on the staff to collect and store your mail safely for you. Your well-being and comfort really are key to the staff, and they ensure to always keep up a welcoming environment. The facilities are excellent - on-site laundry, gym, and common room. The standard ensuite is the perfect size for me, with a modern bathroom, and the kitchen has plenty of space and is well equipped. Overall, I have thoroughly enjoyed living here and would highly recommend to anyone considering living here!

The experience at Mary Parker House has been a divided one due to the effect of COVID-19 keeping me away from the building but in the time that I have spent in the building I have always felt safe comfortable and content. The staff are exceptionally lovely they treat even the smallest of problems like it's a priority and they have always kept me in the loop when problems have arisen and dealt with them swiftly. The surrounding area is less than perfect, the people of the city being on more than one occasion rather unagreeable but the building is indeed a good escape from this. I can only recommend Mary Parker House and regret that I have not spent as long there as I would have liked.

Really nice place and the rooms are really spacious! I think the access to mutley and the train station is good but was a little far from other halls. Because of Covid I wasn’t able to get much social experience as I would’ve liked but I know in a different year it would be better!

Overall I've had a good time here at Mary Parker House. The rooms are very modern and clean with great social spaces in the common room and onsite gym. The kitchen is a great size and has been a really nice social space to cook and chill and watch TV with my flat mates. The staff are lovely, Mark is always about to help with anything maintenance, Lynn is such a beam of sunshine down at reception, and Lauren, the new house manager has already made massive improvements to the management of the house since taking over. I've had a great social experience here and you really do feel part of the family with regular flat competitions and quizes. One word of caution is that this is right beside the train track which can be quite loud however you do really get used to then. And another point to be aware of, CRM Students (the company that tuns the house) refused refunds or rent rebates during the 3rd lockdown - the staff here are lovely, but the management company are quite frankly dreadful.

Thank you so much for your review! It’s fantastic to hear you have enjoyed your time at Mary Parker House and think so highly of the site and staff. While we understand the frustration with rental payments, as CRM are acting on behalf of the landlords to collect the rent due, and there was no support or guidance provided by the government to assist financially with payments that were owed on the building, our landlords weren’t able reduce or cancel any payments as this would have forced them to breach covenance with the bank.  This is why the decision was made to still request the full rent amount. If you would like to discuss this any further, please contact us at maryparkerhouse@crm-students.com

Amazing experience staying at Mary Parker hence why me and my friends decided to stay here for our three years of study. The accommodation team are super friendly, the location is perfect (being right next to the train station, mutely plain and the university) plus Mary Parker is really safe, feeling like a home from home. I really recommend staying here to all students especially first years. You’ll get settled really quick and meet loads of amazing people

Very good accommodation. Rooms are modern and are well ventilated so when it was hot I was able to keep cool and when it was cold the radiator in my room worked a charm. Walls are also reasonably noise proof I could hardly hear any of my flatmates in their rooms. Kitchens were also good with two large fridge freezers and lots of cupboard space. WiFi as in most student accommodation was great and the on site staff were super friendly would always say hello and were always good for a chat. However, there was a bit of unsociable behaviour from a few of the residence that put myself and a lot of others at unease which I wished more was done to punish them. My only real complaint about the building is the fire alarms are overly sensitive. On a few occasions it would go off and it would be as a result of people burning sausage rolls and then the alarms will blare until someone come to turn them off which is rather disruptive. However, overall the accomodation is great.
