Most helpful review

The team that run abode are one of the most attentive group of people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting; fast responses to emails, constant attention to communal spaces and fast turn around time for issues that may arise. I would highly recommend the studios offered by abode for anyone that is looking to have a space of their own while at university, especially if the idea of sharing space with new people is daunting.

Q
Hi, I'm hoping to start at York St john university in September and wondered about the ratio of university of York students to York St john students? Also, I noticed that in a previous message the possibility of video viewing the abode was mentioned, just wondered how I would go about receiving this?

Hi, thanks for comnacting us.  That's right we can indeed do a video viewing for you.  In regards to the ratio of students we have a good mix here of both universities as well as a good mix of years which we find works really well.  Please contact the team on abode@wearehomesforstudents.com to let us know what you are looking for and one of us will come back to you with relevant details.

Great location for being in town but also close to the uni of York. The staff are friendly and helpful and quick in sorting problems. The rooms are comfortable. Unfortunately the gym and social area are closed currently due to the pandemic but both look great and will be good assets

Great to hear how attentive the team are, I think they are but I am biased, it's good to hear that other people think the same!  Not long now for the gym to be open, it'll be lovely seeing people make use of it :-)  Thanks so much for taking the time to comment on here, it's much appreciated.  Joy, Property Manager, Abode

The environment is super good, and the reception service is very good. The most important thing is that it's quiet.

Moved in in September, although feeling apprehensive at first the staff made me feel extremely welcome and comfortable. The kitchen facilities are up to date and clean. The site is very secure and has bike storage and a gym, which come in very handy. I enjoy staying here and have booked again for next year

My student experience at Abode has been great. I love how close we are to town and the supermarkets. The management team are very friendly and continue to keep us informed and engaged. I am very pleased with my room too, which is very important given how much time I have spent in here this year. I particularly appreciate the large desk and great wifi/ ethernet connection.

Thank you so much for the great review with lots of good detail in there!  10/10 :-) We really do hope that you'll be able to spend a bit more time outside of your room in the up and coming months, especially if the sun is out - we'll make sure we host some outside events that you can get involved in so that we can see all your lovely faces.  Thanks.  Joy, Property Manager, Abode.
