It does what its there for, good for less affluent students who need to be in the city centre.
Really good location, i like that it is very close to everything
Nice spacious rooms and kitchen for cheap prices
Trigon is the place! Really enjoyed my stay.
Proximity to University buildings, Grocery stores, train station, gym and the city centre makes this accommodation stand out from the rest. Great, friendly staff who's willing to resolve issues right away. Overall, a peaceful, student friendly place to stay.
Lovely accommodation and lovely staff will help you with any issue
overall a good accomodation especially good value for money, staff will often help out when needed and it's in a really good location. walking distance to the uni and to the city centre!
The staff were so lovely and helpful
Lovely well placed place to stay for first year
Rooms nothing like website unless you get A block (unlikely as only 10 flats in there). B block smells rank and appliances are all old. Flats are not clean in there. C block smells bad too. I had a leak in my bedroom that they refused to fix for 2 months (would just say it was rain and to deal with it and then pretended to not know about it). The shop downstairs started experiencing a leak and so i was recommended by maintenance to ask reception if i could move rooms (after they broke a hole in my bathroom and left dirt everywhere) and it still wasnt sorted - i had to chase them up and as of writing this i still havent been allocated another room. I wouldn't recommend. £250 deposit that could be taken off you for something that maintenance wont fix or reception pretends doesn't exist.
The Trigon is an okay place to live. A lot of the experience hangs on your flat mates of course, but staff are friendly and the general building feels safe and is clean. However, the rooms will be freezing. The heaters (like most accommodations) are on timers and turn themselves off after a certain amount of time for safety reasons, which means that due to the very thin walls, you will be very cold most of the time. And also, you can hear everything on the other side of said walls. If you are on the lower floors you can hear everything out on the street. When your flatmates come home late you WILL be woken up even if they try to be quiet. If the people in the rooms next to you set an alarm at 7am you WILL be woken up by it. If they talk on the phone just a bit too loud you will hear it. Same goes for the people above you. The plumbing is also terrible. The water leaves pink stains on the sink, wouldn’t drink it if I were you. I suggest going through Unite Students instead tbh
I love it ! A lot of space for meeting people. The city is really nice, lot of things to do
Very nice place, cosy! Love it
The trigon block B. Its been so nice but the only thing i can think is the bathroom im my accommodation was a bit unclean so thats the only bad thing i can think of

I find it very cool. Thank you
I really like the Trigon the staff are really good I appreciate them it's a nice bed and kitchen and it is nice
As a postgraduate international Muslim student, my MSc one-year course was very smooth and stable and the credit goes back to my comfort living in the Trigon. the management team does care and they do their responsibility in the best way they can, they managed the pandemic period professionally and efficiently, and they been crystal clear and honest. During my stay, I felt the highest level of safety and security due to the 24 hours security guard. All my requests have been answered, they are flexible enough with renewing the contract to suit your situation and they have excellent networking with the university, During my 14 days quarantine, they hosted me for free and I received the highest level of help and care, I received two free big food packages delivered to my room door. I’m writing those words while my tears are falling because remembering that I have been treated as human and I never faced any type of racism.
Great location for students on city campus and located close to many bars and clubs in city centre. Flats perfectly adequate and grounds are well kept and looked after. All staff are friendly and approachable. Maybe not as lively as other student accommodations so if you enjoy going out a lot maybe consider somewhere else, however enjoyed my time here and would recommend it to anyone thinking of moving here.
Halls of accomodation are secure and offer great extra facilities at low prices.
An amazing flat for a first year student. So close to the uni itself and I always felt safe
Small rooms, s*** cooking facilities only thing decent is the location near just about everywhere, other than that wouldn't bother
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.
WiFi was on and off (academic year 17/18) much more secure than a lot of accommodations, covered smoking area always social. 24/7 security on hand, usually walking around or in office, repairs usually done same week.
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.
Great location for the uni and city centre. Lots to do in the area, staff are friendly, approachable and helpful and will go out of their way to help. Generally well managed and efficient.
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
They will try and take as much money off you as possible. So overpriced for what you get, cleaners are so mardy. Only stay here at a last resort.
It’s s***. Don’t bother. Live in a cardboard box instead.
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.
Good but very expensive for what you get. The constant inspections, water temp checks and shower chlorination checks are a ballache.
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.
Very private and quiet, it's in a prime location next to the train station and only 10mins from the university and city centre, definitely recommend
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.
Lovely people, very safe! Great location and nice rooms/kitchen.
Great location, i was lucky to have social halls! good for money. However, they are strict when something is broken. Some rooms were good, some not so good. Kitchens were nice!
Fantastic place and fantastic staff. Love it here.
Trigon is in between most things, 15 minutes away from both campus by foot. Easy routes for taxis to and from clubs and not far from train station if you need to go meadowhall or more importantly home !
Not bad, shower was awful though and rooms weren't properly clean when we moved in. Staff are 50:50 - most are lovely, but some are creepy and not nice
