Student Blog: Moving to London | CityBlock

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been asking our residents to tell us about their experiences living in CityBlock accommodation. Last month, we heard from Eric, one of our PhD students, who explained how CityBlock helped him celebrate Chinese New Year in his accommodation. This time, we’re speaking to Kasia who explains how living at CityBlock made her realise how rare it is to find quality accommodation.


“During my time as a student in Lancaster, I lived at CityBlock accommodation for a total of three and a half years. This was by far the best decision I made whilst at university! I also experienced living at the university student campus accommodation and another flat in town, which were nothing when compared to the living standards, professionalism and quality of CityBlock”


“Whenever I had a question or a favour to ask, or if something was broken, CityBlock’s members of staff were always happy and quick to help. They genuinely care about the wellbeing of the residents and they go above and beyond to make students’ stay at CityBlock pleasant and hassle-free. They are very friendly, so it was also great to chat with them! The flats themselves are beautiful, well-furnished and comfortable to live in”


“If it wasn’t for CityBlock, my time at Lancaster wouldn’t have been half as good. I can’t even imagine what my time in Lancaster would have been like without CityBlock because it was such an integral part of my experience and an incredible place to live, study and socialise. After graduation and moving to London, I can now say that finding such a quality, affordable place to live, where the staff are so friendly, responsive and helpful, is truly rare. For anyone looking for the best Lancaster accommodation – just live at CityBlock!”
