Everything is exactly how it was advertised on the website. Possibly the best location to live in Norwich, nothing is more than a short walk away. Staff are incredibly friendly and I'll definately be staying next year !

Benedict's Gate is a great hall to live in! The location is perfect, the social spaces are really good (and big, which is great with distancing!) and the staff are almost all really kind and eager to help with any questions or concerns. I also know they've got lots of plans for when social events are able to take place again. One downside is that the internet plan limits how many devices I can use. My biggest concern is that the security staff here is... really bad. They're hostile, don't speak much English and just don't do their jobs- i've never seen them outside of sat in reception with their feet up on their phones, playing games or watching TV shows while ignoring genuine issues. At night when I've reported loud noises they've taken a long time to go and feebly attempt to stop the disruption that's usually over by the time they get there- and then they come into my flat to tell me they couldn't help!? I appreciate them wanting to tell me but it's 4am! Let me sleep :/

Hi Ponyo!

Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts on Benedict's Gate.

We're so pleased to hear that you think Benedict's Gate is a great place to live. We've got some great social spaces including our large study area, comfy lounge complete with 75" TV and our complimentary pool table at Reception. We have also been running a variety of social events as government guidelines have been eased and we've definitely got more in store for September.

We're sorry to hear that you've reached your limit of 5 devices, but you can add more! Our providers 'Ask 4' offer the option of increasing this count at a small cost for the entire academic year. To increase devices simply access your Ask 4 Account and select the plan that suits your needs.

We would also like to apologise for the way our security members have acted in the past. We appreciate your feedback and realise that this is unacceptable. We have therefore chosen to hire a whole new team of Security Staff who will be available out of office hours to help you with anything you need. We have also made them aware of past behaviour that we deem unacceptable in order to prevent these situations from happening again.

If you would like to discuss anything you have mentioned further our inbox is always open (benedictsgate@thisisfresh.com) and you are always welcome to visit Reception during office hours to have a chat with either myself or one of the team. - Sophie

We're so pleased to hear that you think we're in the best location. We are indeed only a 10 minute walk to the city centre, a 9 minute walk to NUA and a 27 minute bus ride to UEA, so nothing is too far away at all! We're also really glad to hear that you think our staff are friendly. The Residents' Team truly want to make you feel at home during your stay. We pride ourselves on engaging with our students and coming up with fun things to do through our BeProgramme.

We looking forward to having you stay with us next year! - Thanks so much, Sophie

Even if there were some hiccups at the beginning of my stay at the accommodation the management managed to sort every issue and still provide a welcoming experience with online events to take part in even with restrictions in place. The location is absolutely amazing with amazing wifi and a lovely looking building.

Hi Strolio!

Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts on Benedict’s Gate.

As a brand new building in September we did encounter some teething problems during the first few months, which is normal for a new build. We're very thankful for your patience and we're glad that we could resolve any problems you had without it affecting your exciting uni life experience!

We are very lucky to be situated just a 10 minute walk away from the city centre which which means we're never too far from anything. We're glad you love your wifi at Benedict's Gate, it's managed by ASK4 who provide an excellent service in which you can register up to 5 devices!

We're also proud to look exactly like our profile pic, no catfishing here! All of the photos found on our website (freshstudentliving.co.uk) accurately depict Benedict's Gate in all its glory.

If you would like to see more pictures of Benedict's Gate or what goes on here check out @benedictsgate_ on Instagram, thanks! - Sophie

Really enjoyed my time here, brilliant staff keep the place alive with fun social events and chats. The whole building looks/ feels lovely that you forget you're at the centre of the city. Only a couple minutes to NUA and the main city area. Strongly recommend if you are looking for a fun, relaxing place to stay whilst studying.

Hi there!

Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts on Benedict’s Gate.

We're so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay here and that our wonderful staff made it an entertaining time for you! We love to host social events and we’re excited to start hosting more of them in person for September. We are still very new and sparkly and we have a cleaner on site every morning to help keep it that way. We are about a 10 minute walk away to NUA or the city centre so if you need to grab a snack, your weekly shop or a cuddly toy you can make a start in under 15 minutes! We do have some great places to relax at Benedict’s Gate. Our lounge area within our Social Space has large comfy seating, a coffee machine, vending machine, TV, PlayStation 4 and record player. We’ve even got a few classic board games too!

We’re always looking for suggestions or ideas you may have to make Benedict’s Gate even better so feel free to drop us a DM on Instagram @benedictsgate_ to let us know. - Sophie
