I am a student who stayed in studio flat here. Did not regret my choice even for a bit. Management always friendly and occasional pizza or breakfast in the morning was appreciated. Trains slightly were annoying, but then you get used to them. So close to town or you can get a quick train to London, bonus. Liked being in here and will miss my studio.

Q
Do all the rooms here have small double beds?

Not sure, but I really recommend not renting here - it looks nice in pictures but the reality is different. Horrible management too

Stayed here for a year and it wasn’t a great stay. The noise of the train can be really loud and as it runs through the night, it does disturb you and can prevent you sleeping well and disturb you when you’re studying. Some people could get used to it but I really couldn’t. There were countless issues with my room, little things that should’ve been resolved easily and painlessly by staff but weren’t. Management are very unapproachable and there were multiple reports of staff entering peoples rooms without permission. Ver expensive for what it is. It’s run by the uni so there seems to be minimal attention to detail unlike if you rented privately or with a separate company. Wouldn’t recommend if you wanted to use the space to study and not for as a social gathering

The accommodation itself is set in a good location. Town is very close, and the university is not far. This makes it an ideal spot for the social side of the university. However, the accommodation is very over priced. The so called cleaners, rarely attended which left students feeling like they were paying for a service not provided to them and so in breach of contract (which the accommodation will make sure you adhere to but not themselves). There are many problems with the building which is surprising for a new build as you would’ve thought it would be all up to date but it is to be expected of a building thrown up so quickly. The train track nearby will be constantly heard as trains thunder by in the night which can be a serious problem for those rooms facing the tracks due to noise. Some problems even when reported do not get sorted even tho they existed prior to us moving in. Certain issues and complaints aren’t dealt with seriously enough while others are dealt with too harshly

Cathedral point is a well build, well placed accommodation. However, those who run it and are meant to support students, do not. In my almost year, there we’re a lot of issues with things being broken, bins not being emptied and drug raids without permission to enter rooms. The night security is amazing.

Really not worth the money. Multiple issues with the building and the manager is cold and rude in attitude. She only appears to do the bare minimum. and is obviously not qualified to be in charge of managing Cathedral Point on a day-to-day basis. Multiple maintenance issues are ignored and left. Despite the building being new, there are countless design faults with the windows, blinds and heaters in the kitchen. Extremely disappointing considering the price of the rent. The manager is definitely not skilled for the position, and it very clearly impacted on how things have been dealt with. Unwarranted (possibly illegal) drug search was also undertaken in all residents private rooms, and staff would enter rooms whether student was there or not. No de-briefing was given, which raises many ethical issues. Really is not worth the money. Sadly they get away with it as the competition is so low here.

It’s quite expensive but if you can afford it it’s a really nice place to live. It’s right next to the train station, a 10 minute walk from town and a 15 minute walk to uni. The laundry machines are a bit expensive but apart from that everything is included in your rent. The ensuite rooms are really nice and you’ve got a lot of storage space. It’s all really modern and the kitchen is spacious and looks nice as well.
