Most helpful review

My stay at Straits village has been very comfortable so far. I especially enjoy the cinema room and the puppy yoga event that happens occasionally at the property. They have many more exciting events taking place every month. Rooms and kitchens are spacious and the staff here is very helpful with everything ! Would recommend 100%

I was done with not feeling at home and Straits village Accommodation changed my whole Uni experience !! The manager Keiren and the receptionist Stacey made me feel so welcom and at home. Not only do they look after your housing needs but they gently cater for your emotional needs as well. Being a student is not easy but choosing straits to be your new home is the easiest and best choice you will ever make!! Make sure to book a room as soon as possible !

Very good student accommodation. I actually rebook my room for another year. I'm living in the studio room which is really nice and have generous amount of space. The place are located in the city center near Victoria Center which have bus station available to travel to uni. The common area is clean and tidy most of the time. The staff are friendly and very helpful! The accommodation provides some activities so student could gather together. I would recommend anyone to live here.

Straits is a lovely student accommodation. Love the atmosphere here. The staff members are extremely friendly and help you at any given time. I had to move in alone, but the staff ensured that my move in experience was smooth. They provided all the help that was possible! Shout out to Sarah for being so lovely and kind to me right from Day 1. Highly recommend staying at straits :)
