The Tramshed is a fantastic place for all students to live. It’s in an ideal location, right in the heart of campus. There are regular social events organised by the management team and a brilliant common room ideal for socialising. The staff are really friendly and happy to help. The flats are extremely modern, and really well priced for the location and facilities provided. Living here has made my uni experience all the more enjoyable, and I couldn’t recommend it highly enough!

Hello, 

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. It's been so unfortunate that our lovely common spaces weren't able to get much use this year given the covid restrictions. Thank you for the lovely comments about the reception team, it's really appreciated.

The Tramshed is a fantastic place for all students to live. It’s in an ideal location, right in the heart of campus. There are regular social events organised by the management team and a brilliant common room ideal for socialising. The staff are really friendly and happy to help. The flats are extremely modern, and really well priced for the location and facilities provided. Living here has made my uni experience all the more enjoyable, and I couldn’t recommend it highly enough!

I want to say nice things because it's not awful accommodation but I'd rather be honest. It's nice here if you're genuinely not picky and want to be somewhere a bit nicer than normal halls: - Internet is really bad - Gym is super tiny, can't fit more than like 2 people - Laundry machines are always broken. They've broken so many times and left us with either washed clothes or clothes stuck in the machines, and they've flooded before too - Website says "lockable bedroom" but staff just let themselves in using a master key and multiple times, they've let themselves into our flat without prior permission, kind of uncomfortable/invasive/weird?? - Huge management problem, - No parking Staff try their best and I know it's been hard with Covid-19. The location IS great; it needs so much work, definitely not "luxury" living or 5 stars and I've been here 2 years

Hi hollywritesreviews,

 

The Tramshed staff we’re extremely upset reading this review.

 

We have looked in to your review and have found this to be a little unfair given your complaints you have presented to staff at reception and how we went above and beyond to resolve your issues within your flat. Some staff went as far as resolving your issues outside of their working hours.

To respond to your review properly, I will address each point in turn.

The internet here is of very high quality and we pride ourselves in having over  200MBPs which is higher than our competition. Our provider, Glide, have a 24 hour line to help you with any issues you have with your internet on your devices and can remotely diagnose and help you should you wish.

The gym is designed for one flat at a time to use, we have state of the art equipment which again, is better than our competition. We have a treadmill, cross trainer, running machine, multi-pulley machine, over 20 different free weights and a bench press. This would somewhat challenge the 2 person at a time review.

The laundry machines are owned by Circuit laundry, the biggest student accommodation provider in the UK. They are serviced monthly and don’t seem to have had any issues this academic year – could you please contact us to provide more details?

The machines are off for a short period of 15 minutes every month whilst they are being tested.

Regarding accessing your room, we send emails to give 24 hours notice every time we need to enter a room to complete health and safety checks or maintenance jobs. We pride ourselves in our high level of safety on site and therefore must complete checks on rooms time to time.

All access notifications go to your email address provided on booking, please make sure you check your junk mail. We assure you that we would not access without notifying first.

Please could you contact site to provide further evidence for the above claim?

We unfortunately cannot do much in regards to parking, not many student accommodations in Preston provide parking due to the city being so built up. We do suggest the car park next door to us which can be found on google maps under ‘St.Mary’s car park’. They do provide monthly passes.

 

We assume that when students rebook with us, they are happy with our service and facilities. We note that you have stayed with us for 2 years as mentioned above.

 

Thank you for noting that our staff are absolutely trying our best during these extremely challenging times. We have been present on site all the way through the pandemic whilst going back to our families at home after work.

 This review really has come as a shock as we have tried our upmost this year to keep our students happy since we know this has been an awful year to be at university.

 

Again, please do contact us to discuss this further.

 

We have found you to be a great student here and the staff remember you as a regular friendly face. We would be really hurt to see you leave on a bad note.
