I often visited my girlfriend here in York, the location is brilliant, very close to shops, the town center and University all within walking distance. Over 2 years I never experienced any problems and the staff were always kind and helpful putting on unique events for students. They also take extra care of the students staying here as they put in extra care to take care of my girlfriend when she was experiencing a difficult time. Thank you Boulevard.

Whilst I don’t feel that it was worth the high price I paid for my stay, it is still a great place to live as it is in very close proximity to the university making it easy to get to. The staff in reception were always very friendly and lovely, it was always great to chat to everyone there. My only major fault was that when I first moved in my kitchen was left filthy by previous tenants and none of this was cleared before I moved in so this was something I had to clean myself (which I shouldn’t have had to as it wasn’t my mess to clear). Other than that, it was a great place to live in for the last year.

Staff make it, the best. Not value for money compared to other student roost accommodation blocks in other cities, more money despite there being no gym or substantial social spaces like others.

I've lived here for 2 years. It's in a good location, close and walkable to University of York as well as city centre. The price is also cheap considering the price level in York city. I specifically want to thank the staff there with their excellent customer services. During my difficult time, the staff there always supported me and helped me. They were genuinely like friends or family to me. The manager Harriet was the best team leader that any place could ever have, I've talked to her and asked for advice when I had my future accommodation issues in another city. Even though it wasn't her job to deal with, she patiently listened to me and tried her best to help me. I'm very grateful for her and can never thank her enough. Another staff Alex is a really approachable, friendly and considerate person who always has a nice smile on her face. She would listen to me and comfort me whenever I had any bad time, which is just like a good friend. I really can't recommend this place more.

After having lived at The Boulevard for over 2 years, it remains to be a fantastic accommodation. It's close to the city centre and the university and is also near several food shops. The staff are very friendly and regularly provide outstanding service. I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a good place at a decent price and location

The boulevard is in a great location if you're a York University student. Only 10 minute walk to the main campus, and 15 minute walk into the city centre. Rent is very expensive, and overpriced for the size of the rooms. However the staff are very friendly, and are available 24/7 for any issues.

Hi we're glad that you find the location of great convenience to everything, it's obviously a great benefit.

Taking this into account with cost we like to think we are very competitive to similar places in the city.

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!

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.

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.
