Most helpful review

It would be better if RP can open to new international students a few days earlier who have booked their rooms in new semester. That would be helpful for these students have enough time to handle contingency which may be caused the pandemic, such as checking health condition in airports following different policy from different countries. Sometimes this process may take several minites or even a couple of days.

Hi, Thank you for your enquiry, Cluster flats at Raleigh Park have 4,5 or 6 bedrooms, with the vast majority having 2 bathrooms per flat so generally 3 students to each bathroom. There are a few 4 bed flats that have 1 bathroom in addition to a few 5 bed flats that have 3 bathrooms, En-suite rooms for ref of course only have one bathroom per student but are a great size for one person being...

It is one of the cheapest accommodations in Nottingham so you definitely get what you pay for. It’s not super social especially with the pandemic. If you have a lot of face to face on uni park i’d recommend paying a bit more for broadgate to be closer or consider catered halls as I have to dedicate 40/50 mins walking to humanities. The staff are kind however there is definitely a delay and cleaning has been non-existent. It is definitely one of those places where you shouldn’t expect too much when you are paying quite a low fee in comparison to other places, but for people on bottom loan but not getting much other financial support this is the place for you!

Compliment to Raleigh Park Scheme & Contracts Manager Tony Lewis (and his team) who has been providing a great customer service throughout this difficult Covid-19 period. Tony and his team I'm sure have had to deal with a lot of frustrated and angry students and parents who had to pay full rents from March to July. We felt that way too towards the landlord (and still do). However having Tony as a 'go between' helped smooth things over and the most important thing was his speedy responses to queries/problems and resolving them.  Every landlord needs 'A Tony Lewis' !

Absolutely terrible experience, flat was dirty when I moved in, it took the staff 6 months to replace the sofas which were broken upon arrival and Derwent Students have been exceedingly uncompassionate during COVID-19 and are demanding full rent payments, bills and utilities included whilst students are at home.

So we are in the middle of a pandemic (CoronaVirus). The government as to leave uni halls and get back home ASAP. Which is what I and my friends have done. In the event of this University accommodation's and student accommodations across the country have decided to terminate contracts with the students. As there is no point in paying for something when you are using it. In Nottingham a lot of student accommodation have terminated their contracts with the students that have left their halls. Which is good. Raleigh Park still expect us to pay the full rent even though my friends and I won't be there utilising their facilities. I believe this is unfair as a lot of other student commendation in Nottingham are terminating their contracts, whereas we still have to pay. They don't care for us, otherwise the contracts would had been terminated immediately.

Struggling to get a useful response on a rebate for my final term rent. Due to COVID-19 all other students on and off campus both university and privately run have been given refunds. Raleigh Park seems to be very slow on this.

Pretty good value for money, I have a standard+ (standard room but with a 3/4 bed) and that costs ~£110/week including bills. Location is good to get into town and near two supermarkets - great for Jubilee campus but University Park is a bit of a trek. Management are incredibly slow to respond to any queries, and once woke everybody up at 06:00 on a Sunday morning for a fire drill then issued no apology when everyone complained. They also require lots of access, probably more than once a week on average, for some sort of testing or inspection. They could be much more friendly and considerate, Cleaning is fortnightly, which in a flat of 6, is pretty much useless. The cleaners are rubbish at cleaning, and shout at each other whenever they come. Social spaces are good, but aren't really used by many. This is probably because the social life is the saving grace of these halls, so people socialise in their block. The WiFi was recently upgraded, but it drops out frequently.

Raleigh park is a horrible accommodation and during this crisis (covid-19) we still have to pay rent where as St. Peter’s court took it in too consideration and allowed people who don’t stay on site not to pay rent? Don’t choose Raleigh they aren’t thoughtful to any individual and don’t care about anything in all honesty st Peters is much better so I’d suggest you do that accommodation as I regret Raleigh park

Worst experience of my life, living here. Laundry machines broke down every time I used them. Housemates were an absolute nightmare. I thought living in postgrad halls would be quieter and cleaner, but no. Most of them didn't bother cleaning up once, one guy acted like he owned the whole kitchen. He used the curtains and his gym clothes as dish cloths and listened to misogynistic podcasts so loud in the kitchen I could hear it from my room, which was furthest away from the kitchen. He also threatened me. When I mentioned this all to Raleigh Park staff, I was told to either call the police or welfare as they 'couldn't do anything' about the fact that my housemate had just threatened me [I have anxiety so this was a pretty big deal]. Welfare hours listed were wrong and they didn't answer the phone. Was forced to go back to my flat without any help or suggestions on what to do for the 5 hours until Welfare were available. Nothing was done about him, despite three housemates complaining.

Great value for money and the best option for self catered due to close proximity with the city! A great deal less sociable than catered halls on campus.

Raleigh Park is a very good place for student accommodation, The scheme manager, Tony, was very helpful and the staff are really welcoming also they are very transparent with policies and procedures. The site is quite big and they have great social events. I would recommend this place to many students looking for self catering accommodation.

Raleigh park is in Lenton so you will be closer to town and most 2nd and 3rd years live around this part of nottingham to. Most people live on campus so be prepared to make the 20 to 40 minute walk to see your friends in their campus halls. There is a much more chilled vibe in Raleigh than other halls, most people keep themselves within their flats and houses so maybe not for you if your super social (you'll meet far more people in campus halls). However if you want to keep your stuff in your room over semester breaks and want the indepence of selfcatering, Raleigh park might be for you!
