Read The Trigon Reviews
The location of The Trigon is great, possibly one of the best I have seen across the UK in terms of proximity to Uni and other services. However, its very old and run down, very backward look to it. Maintenance are very helpful in terms of getting things fixed and those staff members are very friendly and look to get things fixed. However, at times it has taken them a while to get stuff sorted and things have not always been done to the best standard. Management are also really friendly but can be slightly awkward to work with and sort different things out. They say that they run flat inspections during the tenancy, we have not yet had one, its April. This isn't great as it doesn't necessarily help with the whole upkeep of the building. As students we might not spot a dodgy switch or an issue with our flat. The security staff have been great and are always on hand if needed. The laundry is overpriced and not easy to simply put a wash on. I would not recommend the Trigon to anyone.
Wouldn’t recommend extremely pricey, when you arrive good luck expecting everything in the flat to be clean and working. Lots of faulty electrical they do nothing about them. Also don’t recommend if you’re a disabled student as they leave you extremely vulnerable if anything goes wrong. I’ve been battling to get a releases from tenancy all year due to nasty flat mates. They don’t do anything about it. They just want your money go elsewhere.
Do not stay at Trigon I had a problem I stayed there in my first year of university and in the first week the three people in the rooms next to me quit and moved out just leaving me and one more in my corridor I asked management if I could move so I had more students around me they flatly refused and were very rude I offered to pay a moving fee my parents rang up and management were rude to them too there were lots of spare rooms but would not move me
This place is great if you want good location, helpful staff and suitable accommodation. The rooms must be basic design, a big facility cannot change each room decoration to suit new student. Too many reviews are not honest or they are views of people who do not have discipline and lazy. Every group should clean own flat not expect someone else to do it. If people come to study and are mature they talk to staff and they are very polite and helpful, deal with queries as soon as they can, most immediately. When people make bad reviews about flat not clean and staff not good they are not helping for others because it is personal choice of lazy people without manners. Some good reviews are honest like rooms small and basic but adequate, wifi mostly ok and safe site and excellent staff. This is helpful. If you want to be lazy and expect to live in luxury big room with own personal cleaner and room service you need a 5 star hotel. Management staff work hard to help. They are excellent.
I’ve stayed here for 3 years and I don’t even no why. It’s close to campus and close to the train station to escape home. I think it’s a family run business. The 2 managers are mother and daughter and one of the repair guys is their partner and I don’t no about the others. Having observed the staff at The Trigon and speaking with them, everyone is lovey apart from the management who sit in the back room as they are very un-helpful and quite nasty. Our friend in another flat stayed in mine for weeks as she was scared to go to hers and management wouldn’t do anything about it. Outside the management team, I’ve noticed a high turn over of customer service and reception people. You get flat inspections like every week so you have 0 privacy and get charged for something not your fault. Internet doesn’t work and they have rats. Uni is soppose to be the best experience of your life, it won’t be if you stay here. Enjoy your expensive stay on a hard mattress!

When I was assigned to live at the Trigon I was kind upset but I have learned to love the Trigon. The location is great for uni and nights out and it feels like a safe place to live. All of the staff are really nice and helpful. However, the wifi sometimes doesn't workout I think it depends on where your flat is, the rooms especially the bathrooms and kitchens need updating. The tap water isn"t great. Overall I really enjoyed my time at the Trigon because I met my best friend.
Okay, so my 2 flatmates and I were landed with this guy. Smoked in his room, had people around at 2-3 am, yelling constantly, having pre-drinks... All things that I put up with at first, until it got to a month in and we got fed up. We complained and the staff were helpful at first... at first. When we got evidence against said flatmate and one of my other flatmates and I tried to get said person kicked out for anti-social behaviour the staff didn't want to know, sent us on a wild goose chase around the uni trying to find someone who would take us seriously. No action was taken. If you want to feel safe, don't stay here.
I wouldn’t stay here ever again if somebody paid me, i’ve been put into a horrendously situation to the point i’m not staying in my own flat because i feel unsafe and yet i’m still being forced to pay excessive rent payments on top of train tickets to go home just to feel safe, there’s nothing that implements that people keep social areas clean and my kitchen is disgusting, the wifi works about two hours a day and the office team have done next to nothing to help anyone that needs them, absolutely appauling and not worth the money at all, luckily it is 5 minutes away from the train station so you can get away quickly.
Good location, the university campus is a 5-10 minute walk. All local bars, pubs, restaurants and clubs are either walking distance or a £5 taxi fare. Rooms are OK, will need to make them home yourself as they can be abit plain. Ensuites are great. 3 inspections throughout the year, penalties for damage and cleaning services etc. Quite spacious living/kitchen areas. If you need a good nights sleep, there tends to be music playing from above, below or next door just for that bit of help staying awake! The wi-if has its ups and downs, most of the time it is fine for general social media, videos. However from time to time the wi-if turns off and you have to phone their external provider for help not the Trigon team. Do not really see many other students day to day unless you make the effort to interact. Get on the Trigon facebook page and make some friends.
I am not an overly social person, I am uncomfortable in new social situations and find it incredibly difficult to deal with the anxieties involved in interaction with new people, this is why I asked to be placed with other quiet people who are preferably on my course. My request has basically been ignored... There are many other places available where you could spend a lot less than £1,600 a month for a 4 person living arrangement with more space, and with people you choose to be around.
Good location for City campus, close to train station and the city centre - also close to most of the clubs for nights out. Wouldn't recommend if you want the social side of it, common room isn't used much and don't really see many people around. I would recommend making as much friends as possible during freshers week, I.e people on your floor. I didn't do initially, but I do now get on with all of them. Flat inspections 3 times in the year, our flat is always a tip, we don't really clean it so its our own fault. Management and staff are lovely and you can have a chat with them. Rooms are quite small and don't feel like home, try and put some photos and fairy lights to make it more bearable.
