“I have had a really nice time living here”

Hetty Durham August 2021

Lived here for 3 years now and had a really pleasant experience. The rooms are large, clean and well designed. The bathrooms are great, and have really good showers, with plenty of hot water. The shared kitchen in my flat is in excellent condition, and has plenty of cupboard space. Maintenance is fast to respond to any issues, and the reception team are really friendly and helpful. I have had a really nice time living here.

“I have to recommend this student accommodation”

Abby Huang Reading July 2021

I have to recommend this student accommodation. It has a great location which is not too far from the town, near to the hospital and tesco express, so you can get everything you need and sleep quietly.

It has free gym and very neat and beautiful common room. You can hold a decent party with your friends there or catch up a group meeting. Also, the price is reasonable for a studio comparing with others. Anyway, go for it.

“The staff here are super nice and helpful”

Howie Wong Lancaster Gillows January 2021

I’m currently living here, and everything is great. The place is nice and clean, room is decent, and the staff here are super nice and helpful too.

“Highly recommend”

Angel Casillas Lancaster Marton Street February 2021

If you need student accommodation, look no further. Great location, just a few steps away to everything you need. From the moment you step in the staff gives you a warm welcome. The rooms are lovely. You can tell they are taken cared of and give you that cosy home feeling. The building is always clean. The whole staff is lovely. And they have done a fantastic job adapting to the current situation to ensure everyone is safe. Highly recommend.

“I will really miss living there.”

Robyn Weir Lancaster Penny Street September 2020

I have been living in Cityblock for the academic year 19/20 and have absolutely loved it. Everything you need is around the corner, the living space and the rooms are so beautifully done and are perfect for every student, and the views of the castle from the flats is stunning. Apart from that, the team working in the reception and the cleaners are so friendly and caring and wonderful to talk to. This has been a difficult end to the year, but city block has been amazing throughout. I will really miss living there.
