“The facilities are top notch”

Uchenna Agunwa Durham 2017

The Village is an awesome place to live in. It is strategically located being five minutes away from Durham City centre, Train Station and Bus Station. The facilities are top notch, and the management team renders quick, efficient and reliable services.

“It has all the commodities needed and even more!”

Edda Pernice Reading 2017

The accommodation is great. Halfway between town and uni, has a bus stop and supermarket soon as you get out too so it's super convenient. It has all the commodities needed and even more!

Has a huge communal space to socialize, and the studios are perfect for quiet study. Last but not least, the staff is amazing, helpful and incredibly friendly.

“They help the residents in every possible way”

Nevena Lancaster 2017

The newest building of City Block is extremely nice and the staff is helpful and very responsive. They help the residents in every possible way. The rooms are nice and the kitchens are big so anyone can freely share the space.

The building has a wonderful view towards the hills and the castle and the communal space makes the flat feel a lot more like home.

“The rooms and facilities are very nice and modern”

Jamal Abdo Durham 2017

Next year will be my third at the village and I would definitely recommend it to anyone coming to Durham. The rooms and facilities are very nice and modern, the staff on site are great, the location is very convenient and you get excellent value for money.
