Couldn't be happier with my stay at the Boulevard and I re-booked my room for next year. The staff is always super lovely and great to have a chat with. If you're unhappy with something they'll make sure to try and fix it. No better accommodation in York.
The Boulevard has been the best Halls I have lived in, in my 4 year Univeristy experience in York. The studio flats are really nice and spacious. It was clean upon arrival and some extras are provided (e.g. kettle, toaster, iron) which I have previously had to provide myself. The staff here are lovely! They are very friendly and approachable and will go out of their way to help with whatever you need. They make an effort to get to know you as an individual. The over all space is nice, with an outside courtyard with seating. The site is wheelchair accessible. The disabled access studios have everything you could need. Plenty of grab rails in the bathroom, and emergency pull cords in the bathroom and one by the bed. The work top has been lowered so cooking on the hob is easy from a seated position! Highly recommend, would stay again if I had another year of Uni left.
The Boulevard is just a 10 minute walk to my university department on Campus West, so is really convenient for me. The staff have always been cheerful and helpful whenever I have needed anything and they contribute greatly to the friendly atmosphere here. The Boulevard is well maintained and the maintenance staff are always quick to resolve any issues that do arise. The social spaces are kept clean and tidy, however residents are responsible for cleaning shared kitchens (so pray for tidy flatmates). As Covid 19 is doing it's worst at the moment, the social spaces are closed off and I have rated the social experience based on the enthusiasm of the staff and their efforts to engage residents in fun, socially distanced activities. I would recommend a stay at The Boulevard and intend to return here myself after my year abroad.
Pros: Location convenient for uni campus as well as city centre, large rooms (some bigger than others, you have to get lucky), nice bathrooms, nice common room, large kitchen/living room in flats, plenty of wardrobe space, large desks, pleasant modern decor, prompt maintenance team. Cons: Windows incredibly dirty and never cleaned, very very loud if you face the street, pretty expensive (but they all are), only one small common room in the whole complex, staff often very unfriendly and ignore emails more often than not, outside rubbish bins overflow every week leaving heaps of rubbish everywhere, laundry very expensive and unreliable. I'm seeing a lot about weekly breakfasts... that was not a thing this year!
Have lived here for 3 years now, the staff are very friendly and easy to talk to. My room is super spacious and the space has a relaxed and calming feel. The reception and the newly refurbished common room are great places to both chill out and do uni work in and I would highly recommend living here!
Absolutely love the place, has fantastic service, great location, lovely and friendly staff that make it enjoyable even if you're just popping in for a quick chat. Would definitely recommend for anyone give this place a shot. It's surpassed my expectations for student halls
The Boulevard is the best student accommodation in York. It's the close to the University, the staff is absolutely amazing, fun, caring and professional! They organise loads of social events which are great and brings residents together. I lived here for 3 years and it was the best time at uni!
Reception staff are incredibly friendly and good to chat to. Nice to have a well secured complex. Building is modern and well kept. Rooms have ample storage space. A little peeve is the ensuit have quite a narrow passage into it due to the toilet obstructing some of it.
The Boulevard. A student accommodation with all the comforts of home in a convenient location. A lovely friendly team who are always welcoming, ready to help and have a laugh. Mintues away from shops take aways pharmacy and most importantly bars.... And uni. Excellent public transport right outside. Nice modern rooms and kitchens.
Excellent location 15 minutes away from uni and about 20 minutes from the town centre. Staff are very friendly and are quick to solve any issues with rooms! Social events are frequent, including Super Bowl, Game of Thrones and movie viewings occasionally and breakfast sandwiches offered each week. Overall I'm very happy with my stay here, I live in a silver studio with my girlfriend which is spacious, bright and well equipped, if a little pricey.
