Very comfortable and modern accomodation. Clean and spacious and good transport links.
Crown place is an overall nice place to live there are some small problems here and there but nothing major, the staff generally is helpful in resolving problems and answering your questions. One of the nicest things for an international student is the option of paying rent up front instead of having to pay for or find a guarantor.
Overall, I've really enjoyed my time at Crown Place. It's comfortable, with good study spaces and great facilities, including the gym and cinema room. Staff and management are always super friendly and I like the 24/7 security. Additionally, Crown Place is in a great location, right by the high street and close to Norwich University of the Arts. However, the price of the washing is quite expensive at around £5/6 per wash and dry. Also maintenance issues occasionally take a little while to rectify, such as replacing a broken shower head and light bulb changes.
Very modern and created a great social environment, especially if you’re starting university. Staff are very friendly and the building is kept clean.
It is a really nice, modern place to live as a student. Its one of the more expensive accommodations but it’s got a lot of facilities that many others don’t. However maintenance management is something that needs improvement as a lot of jobs need doing that have been on hold for a long time
I have been living in Crown Place this current year and have rebooked my room for the next one. It has very quickly become my home! I have settled amazingly in my room and feel safe and comfortable at all times. Thanks to its central location in Norwich, its modern decor and the incredibly nice people and staff that live and work in it, Crown Place boasts a lively, energetic and positive atmosphere. Ten out of Ten would recommend!
My experience has been very enjoyable. I have met many people from all over the UK, as well as other comtries.
Great location in walking distance to everything, great social spaces that are always kept really clean and staff are friendly :) only downside is that it’s very expensive and living in a twodio (2 bedrooms + kitchen) you don’t get much for the price.
The staff are really kind, friendly and helpful, despite the cost of the accommodation I love living here, especially since it's bang in the middle of the city.
I’ve lived at crown since September 2021, I’m staying another year as I feel so comfortable and happy about my experience here. The staff are lovely and welcoming and the facilities are great.
Absolutely brilliant accommodation. Very modern and with lots of space. It's perfectly situated in the city so lots of shops and things to do. Upkeep of the building is very good and staff are very friendly. Couldn't recommend enough
I live here Currently and have rebooked my room for next year, lovely staff and sircurity team. The only thing I find fault in is the price of the laundry and the fact that the terrace is somtimes locked with no explanation. But overall a nice place to live. Lovely spaces to socialise and do university work and super close to everything in the city.
Overall a lovely place to live. However if I had to say what crown could improve on, the laundry could definitely be free for the price we’re already paying, especially because they don’t wash that great either. Also have very firsthand flatmates that never clean, but suppose that isn’t crowns problem.
Honestly the best student accommodation in Norwich during the year 2019/20. The facilities are great and the room has everything you need. The shared kitchen is lovely however the couch was not soft and the TV was kinda useless. There’s a gym, music room, cinema room, study areas, games areas it’s the best place for students honestly. It’s right on the Main Street of Norwich which was so convenient and the walk to UEA took just as long as the bus ride. The reception staff were the best, genuinely nice people and my belongings always felt safe in my room. If you’re thinking of booking a room here you defo should!
I've stayed at Crown Place for 2 years and had nothing but great experience! The staff is so helpful and lovely. Lots of social spaces and community events. Sad that I'll be moving x
Amazing staff that is kind and caring to the students that live here. Great facilities around the building plus large open areas for people to socialize. A good response to the covid-19 pandemic, looking after all the students in their care whilst being in the building
Crown Place is a very nice place to live, the staff are lovely, there are lots of very nice social spaces (including fun activities in non-covid times such as movie night in the cinema room or yoga in the studio!), it is in an excellent location in the city centre within walking distance to NUA and a short bus ride to UEA. I loved living here over two years and would definitely recommend it to any student in Norwich!
There were definitely negatives such as the communal areas being closed because of Covid. There have been building works my whole time at crown which they said would be done in 2019 October. Regardless I’ve loved living here my flat is very modern and pretty. I like having my own bathroom too.
CRM Norwich offered a nearly perfect student accommodation if only it wasn't for the awkward management of access to shared spaces throughout the pandemic. Having said this, relationship building with on-site staff was most delightful from 2019 to 2021. I encourage everyone looking forward to study at NUA or UEA and live within the city to book a good room ASAP if they can afford it.
We had a few issues with our flat when we first moved in due to things being rushed to finish before we moved in but aside from that everything was really nice and they were generally pretty quick at fixing anything that wasn't working properly :)
I stayed in crown place in 2019/2020, unfortunately the building wasn’t fully finished when I moved in however this didn’t affect my experience as I was in the tower that was mainly done. I didn’t use the basement facilities all that much but there was lots of space to meet people and have a fun time! Internet at the time was 200mbps on an Ethernet cable and I believe has since been upgraded to 300? Some drops were expected due to the number of people living there, however this was soon remedied. Overall a nice place to live if you don’t mind paying the large sum of money. I paid £153 a week when I first moved in but I have heard it is more expensive now
Great memories at here! It’s really a convenient and comfortable accommodation with nice officer!
It was a nice place to live in but never felt homely & felt more like staying in a hotel for the year. The kitchen and living room was the best part because it meant you got to be more social than in accommodations like All Saints Green. My flatmate’s ceiling panel fell through & broke her laundry horse. I think it was put together quickly & there were lots of small mistakes in my flat, like floor bubbles & blinds that didn’t work. It’s good but a weird experience.
It’s just a nice place to live, whenever I walk through reception it’s always a smile and a hello, whenever there’s an issue (which have always been small things) it gets resolved there and then. Loads of facilities. I’m the city centre so shopping is a doddle. Through the Corona Virus we’ve been kept up to date with everything that’s going on and what we can and can’t do. All in all not to shabby!
I have been living at Crown Place for about two years now (barring a few weeks at home during the various lockdowns), and it is probably the best student accommodation I could have found. The rooms are very generous for space, not leaving you feeling cramped like other places might. Beyond that, the social experience you get, both with those in your flat or those in others is brilliant. Amazing value for money, great social spaces and facilities, all while placed at a location that's both convenient for travel and granting amazing views over the city. What more could you want?!
In the middle of town (best location!) and super close to the bus stop for UEA. Its my home away from home.
lived in a Travelodge for a month... overpriced and maintenance staff are none existent
Definitely not good value for money considering it is a lot of money. For example, free weights were removed from the gym with no explanation as to why. It is a nice accommodation but not worth its high price. Explore other options and don't be fooled by the pictures.
Dismissive management over covid, prices put up and locked to longer contracts next year, still uses circuit laundry (£5 for 1 wash and dry) which slowly increases too. First year was nice, second showed they didnt care all that much for the students. On site, the management were nice to speak to, the flats themselves were great if overpriced.
I am staying at crown throughout my university studies and I have had positive experiences with the staff and the building. It is worth the money for all of the spaces that are available, plus the 24/7 security is great and makes all the students feel safe.
Overall quite nice, the on site team is welcoming, lovely and helpful to talk to.
Probably the best student accommodation in Norwich. Definitely good value for money, you get the terrace, social spaces, study area, cinema room and etc. The rooms are also really nice and flats are fun to live in. The internet is amazing. Laundry is a tad expensive but where isn't it.
The best student housing in Norwich! This is a lovely modern and friendly housing with amazing staff and spacious rooms! Perfect central location close to NUA and next to buses for UEA it’s the perfect student flats!
As a third year student looking to focus on my studies, Crown Place has been an amazing place to stay. The rooms are modern and the whole building is always kept clean. I love the atmosphere of the building and all the facilities available including the gym and quiet working spaces. The staff are friendly and easy to communicate with, and have been extremely supportive when dealing with small issues. Both the security and the staff are always helpful and positive, making you feel welcome and safe.
Lovely accommodation, nice staff and good facilities. Unfortunately I was not not able to enjoy the many facilities this year due to coronavirus so I can’t comment on those really, however the rooms are nicely designed and very comfortable to live in. Staff are always happy to help! Can be a bit restricting in terms of having guests, so may not be ideal for those with friends mostly outside of the accommodation. Otherwise great
The accommodation is great but DO NOT rent here if you cannot afford it! There is no leeway, the staff are no help, you can't cancel your lease for any reason EVEN if you decide you don't want to live there anymore or CANT for any reason and there's always builders and construction outside! If you can't afford to spend 10 grand or more a year, its not worth it!
My experience living at Crown Place was very pleasant, this was due to many factors. The 1st being that I was placed into a very good flat in which I have gotten along with all of my flatmates. Other reasons include the fact that we have 2 people on the front desk at all times. It is never empty. This means that if I am struggling with work or just living on my own in the day or night, I can always go down for a natter with the security guards or with the staff on the front desk. Another reason why my experience has been so good is due to the atmosphere this building gives off. It is a new build and counted as private accommodation rather than connected to the universities directly means that I have a more calm sense about it. I also feel like it attracts a more mature student feel to it. Overall I am very pleased with where I have lived this year. Infact, me and my entire cluster flat of 4 have rebooked for next year, so I am looking forward for more great experiences to come!
Could have been excellent if it wasn’t for the treatment of students through lockdown
I have loved my time at crown place it is such a friendly atmosphere and the accommodation is high quality
I haven't been able to be very social due to the pandemic but otherwise I'm very satisfied with the accommodation overall. I've always been listened to and made to feel cared for by the team here. I found myself in an unfortunate situation with a flatmate and the team went above and beyond to accommodate me on short notice. As an international student, I am happy to be able to feel safe in the place I live in during such difficult times.
The staff are amazing, so welcoming and make you feel at home. My only criticism would be there are no weights in the gym and we haven’t been able to use the social spaces during the pandemic yet we are still paying for them.
Could not have found a better place to stay while at university! The rooms are clean and spacious, with great facilities for everyday use. The accommodation team are incredibly friendly and helpful, as well as supportive through all of the lockdowns. The building is very central with a multitude of shops within walking distance, while also being close to NUA, and a short bus ride from the UEA campus. Absolutely would recommend this accommodation to anyone!
Amazing accommodation! Love it here! I’ve lived here for two years now and will definitely rebook for my third! The staff are so kind and helpful!
Staff are very friendly and polite. Shower pressure changes a lot and sometimes goes off for a little while. Not enough plugs in the kitchen.
Very friendly and helpful staff, modern accommodation and facilities. Loved staying there!
The staff that run crown are the loveliest people and are always great to talk to! They're always doing the best they can to make the residents safe and comfortable and take allot of pride in doing so! My first university year wouldn't have been the same without them. Occasionally the wifi can be patchy, especially when at peak resident capacity, but overall is very strong. The social spaces are crown's defining features: the TVs in every cluster flat are fab and the cinema and music rooms are super fun to be in. In my first year at crown (2019-2020) I had a great time meeting new people, unfortunately the social experience is very dependent on who the residents are and nothing to do with crown place themselves.
I stayed at Crown Place Norwich roughly 1 and a half years. The staff are all really friendly and made my stay there feel special, having friends downstairs at the front desk whenever I wanted to have a chat about anything. The accommodation itself was clean and well maintained. And comparing it to others nearby it was by far the nicest. It deserves the crown in its name. The wi-fi was always fast, it had a blip every so often when I used my Nintendo switch, but that was all. The social spaces were big and there were plenty of nice things to do such as go to the gaming room, cinema room and karaoke room. Me and my friends liked to make use of these, renting them out to play DnD or jackbox games. When I first moved in I had issues with my flatmates, but the staff were able to move me to a much friendly flat where I got along with all of them. Overall my stay there was amazing and is defiantly a great experience I will remember when I look back to university in the future.
Crown Place Norwich is an amazing place and a must for any student. The facilities there are great and can appeal to everyone from the games room to the cinema room there is always something to do. The building itself has an amazing modern design with state of the art appliances. Social areas are great whether you wanna play a game of pool with mates or sit in the study area to get your work done. The onsite team are really friendly and are always willing to help and have a chat. Living here has made my uni experience so much better and couldn’t imagine not living here and will always recommend this place to anyone looking for someone to stay throughout their uni experience.
I have been living at Crown Place since it opening in 2019. From the day I viewed it until now I have been very impressed. I love my studio so much I’ll be staying for another 3 years!! Love the management, especially Lisa, Adam and Colin. They’ve supported me so much during both national lockdowns, which I am extremely grateful for. I would highly recommend living here, regardless of year of study. I am a PhD student myself and I don’t feel out of place and can’t complain about noisy neighbours thankfully! I look forward to my future experiences here.
