The staff at abode are absolutely incredible and are always there to help when we need it. Although I have lived here through multiple lockdowns I have still felt supported by staff and it’s great having my own little space that’s in the middle of everything I need. Perfect location and loads of opportunities to meet new people! we can finally use the facilities and they are great:))

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.

The staff is really lovely. Really put an effort into organising events and activities for students, especially during Covid. Good value for money, great location right next to the city centre.

The property is excellent value for money, the best price I could find when looking for accommodation. The location of the property is really good as it’s only a 3 minute walk from the city centre. The management team are super friendly and helpful and the property is always clean and tidy. There are loads of social spaces, a common room and gym aswel as multiple outdoor areas to sit in when it’s sunny. I only gave the social experience 4 stars because I’ve not really done much because of COVID, however I’d expect that without the pandemic it would be so much better, as there’s so many friendly people around.

So lovely to read your review, thanks so much for this.  It has indeed been a difficult year for social events so we'll be ramping this up next year, once we are allowed to mix again.  Good to see you at the crafting event last week though - hopefully you managed to finish your flamingo board at last!!  Thanks again, Joy - Property Manager

I would really recommend living here if you’re looking for an en-suite room. My room this year was no more expensive than the university owned ones and in my opinion, is finished to a much higher standard. The bathrooms in a standard en-suite are quite small but it’s not the end of the world as the room itself is larger than I expected. The property team is amazing. There is nothing too big or too small for them to sort out for you. I would’ve loved to be able to use the social spaces more this year but COVID rules wouldn’t allow :( Extremely close proximity to the centre of town (5-10 minute walk!) About 15 minutes to YSJ university. I really got on with my flatmates and I have made friends for life, I think the social spaces in the kitchen makes it much easier for us all to socialise together. Overall, I can’t recommend this accommodation highly enough!

Thank you so much for your review - that's so lovely to hear!  I'm glad you have been happy here, the term isn't over yet so let's hope that you can get involved in some events that we have coming up.   You can also book the gym and the common room now but once restrictions lift again hopefully you will all be able to use it together, any queries just come and see us in reception :-)  Thanks again for the great review, Joy - Property Manager

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

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.

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.
