“I would live here again, fantastic experience!”

Mattia Tino Durham 2019

I spent one entire year in CityBlock and I can say that it is the best student accommodation in terms of price/quality. In 10 minutes walking you can be at Tesco and in 20 at the Bill Bryson Library. The staff always gives support and important information. It is enough far from the city centre in order to sleep in complete silence every day. I lived in a studio and the facilities inside it are very good (big bed, a lot of space for clothes and books, good induction cookers and oven). If I would come back, I would live here again, fantastic experience!

“The rooms are fantastic and the staff are so kind and extremely helpful”

Keira Sexton Durham 2019

I have just spent a year at CityBlock and I really love it. It is in the perfect location, close to town, the train station and university. The rooms are fantastic and the staff are so kind and extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

“Your first choice of living in the town”

Great staff, room better than expected, definitely worth the price. Your first choice of living in the town, with everything being taken care of.

“The rooms are spacious and clean”

Honestly a lovely student accommodation, the rooms are spacious and clean, everyone is respectful and the staff are especially helpful. They are always looking to help and actively take an interest in our lives; they are really caring and do their jobs well. It’s a lovely place to live.
