Privileges and Perks When You Stay with Us | CityBlock

There are endless reasons why you should choose to live at City Block. Not only do we provide superior quality student rooms and flats, but we also know how to treat our residents. We make sure that your needs are met and, to show our appreciation of you choosing City Block, we offer rewards, treats and exclusive discounts.

When you become a City Block resident, whether you live in Lancaster or our student accommodation in Leicester, you will receive a privilege card that gives you access to amazing discounts around the city. Below, we illustrate just some of the great discounts you will receive and show you how you can have a brilliant budget day in Leicester on us!

Firstly, if you’ve just rolled out of bed and couldn’t be bothered to eat, head to Bar Sandwich on St. Nicholas Place where you can buy a mouth-watering breakfast such as bacon rolls, sausage and egg butties or an indulgent muffin. If you spend £3 or more, you even get a free cup of coffee or tea to wake you up!

Next it’s time for some shopping, so head to the high street. For the ladies who love to get glammed up, we’re offering 10% off all purchases from The Beauty Box; located on Silver Street. This boutique beauty store offers makeup from leading brands including L’Oreal, Benefit, Clarins and OPI nail lacquer.  When you’ve restocked your beauty supplies, why not get your hair done? Ungaro Hair is kindly offering a 15% discount for ladies and gents.

Shopping is hungry business, so stop off to refuel at Paninos Sandwich Bar on London Road. This quirky cafe sells gorgeous home cooked food. Grab a Paninos meal deal including a panini, drink and crisps for only £2.99 with your privilege card.

In the afternoon there’s plenty to do in Leicester. If you’re the fitness conscious type then head for The Gym on Causeway Lane. If you own a privilege card you can get a fantastic 50% discount when you join.

If you’re looking for a fun day out and a laugh, then we have also teamed up with the staff at Swingers Virtual Golf Cafe to bring you fun, interactive virtual golf. It will help you improve your skills as much as the real thing, but it’s conveniently located on your doorstep and you can have a beer while you play!

The weekends are for living the high life, right? If you want to maximise your weekend with your mates, then use your privilege card to get yourself a bargain meal out. Visit the flashy and flamboyant Candy Stripe restaurant where you will receive an exclusive 30% discount on food. After a delicious meal, head just down the street to Fat Cat Cafe bar where you can get 20% off at the weekend.

The perfect weekend always involves a good night out with some classic tunes, singing, dancing, and, of course, plenty of banter. You can get various great offers with your privilege card, including two-for-£7 cocktails, £11 pitchers and £10 bottles of house wine.

At the end of the night you don’t have to stagger home in wobbly heels, but nor do you have to break the bank getting home. Metro cars are offering an amazing 5% discount on journeys no matter what time of the day it is, so you can always get back to your City Block accommodation safely.
