Fantastic location right on the canal. Back decking connecting all the stacks makes it so social where you meet a lot of people. Management and maintenance are great and always respond to any issues quickly. Top place to live during your studies.

The rooms are bigger that I though they would be and for such a good and cheap price. It’s an amazing place to stay with friend or by your self as meeting new people won’t be a problem here as everyone is so sociable

If I could give a rating of 0 for property management I would, with it sometimes taking months to get a response. Many rooms were filthy and appliances broken from move in day, checks were not done. Many isolating tenants went 1 week + without hot water and heating, with refusals for these emergency repairs to be sorted until isolation was finished. If you want to spend all of your time sending emails and getting ignored then this is the accommodation for you. There is a roof terrace, but the website's advertisement is misleading as it does not state that Stacks 1-3 have no access. A 10pm curfew was enforced on the tenants. It took a rent strike for the landlord to even consider reducing our rent even though lockdown measures prevented us from returning. They waited until the last day before we could receive arrears to send us an agreement we had to sign that waived our right to receive further refunds. We had to sign in order to get the reduction that was not even clearly stated.

As a student who has lived at Graystacks for the entirety of my time at uni, I can honestly say that it's an amazing place to live. One of the best things about living here is because it is located right next to a canal so you are surrounded by water, nature and natural light which makes it so peaceful. Especially because you can enjoy sitting on the back decking or roof terrace with your friends and enjoy the view. Another great thing about Graystacks is the distance from the university campuses. The location made it super convenient and meant I didn't have to pay for a bus pass/uber to get to uni. I also had friends that studied at Uni of Nottingham who were not too far away from their campus'. A walk into the city centre takes around 10-15 minutes which was nice as although Graystacks is still very central, you don't get the noise and business from the city centre. I would highly recommend anyone to live here!

Lack of management and poor communication time with staff. Issues arise every few days with the rooms and takes forever to get them sorted. Landlord reluctant to take covid seriously and act accordingly. Not very professional.

Had the best 3 years living at Graystacks. Beautiful location right next to Nottingham canal, close to the city centre and both universities. If you’re a sociable person you’ll love it here, with opportunities to make friends with your 11 flatmates or people in the other 13 stacks, so you don’t have to worry about not making friends! The back decking area exposes stunning views of the canal and the rooftop terrace is wonderful during the spring and summer months, also a VERY unique feature for student accom! Roisin Connolly (site manager) looks after the building incredibly well, always going out of her way to ensure that every student is happy within the accommodation. The Resident Co-ordinators are also handy for giving a helping hand to tenants during the evenings and weekends. Maintenance staff and cleaners are also very friendly and helpful. 100% recommend living here, it’s a student experience that is unlike any other, it definitely beats regular halls of residence!
