City Focus: Coventry.
Being sent to Coventry? – Our three city centre locations are really close to campus and a few minutes walk to the bus stop for Warwick University.
They all have fresh modern social spaces, with plenty of space to relax and unwind after a long day in uni. At Gosford Gate and Sky Blue Point you’ll find ultra cool study spaces. Designed to help you focus, they’re just the spot to help you finish those assignments and avoid the dreaded library. They’re ideal for group sessions, gather your friends and get that presentation sorted.
We have a range of room types to choose from in Coventry from the classic en-suite’s to studio rooms, we have a room to suit your needs and budget as they start at £100 per week. And if you book a room between the 18th and 21st August at either Sky Blue Point or Gosford Gate you could earn yourself £300 cashback or £500 cashback at The Apollo Works.
It’s not surprising that previous residents rave about how much they love living with Host in Coventry.
“It was pretty hard initially but after I went to the common room and found new friends it turned out to be an amazing place to stay! I am so lucky as my flatmates are good too! They conduct many events here like FIFA tournament, pool competition etc which is pretty cool! 🙂 and the receptionists are friendly and helpful too!”

City Focus: Leicester.
Our two Leicester locations offer you something different from the historic listed building that forms Block A of The Glassworks to the almost brand-new 41 Castle Street, you’ll fall in love with both of them.
41 Castle Street opened in September 2020 right in the middle of the pandemic, so not many people know about it’s stunning student offering. But with Castle Gardens around the corner, plus the city centre and DMU’s campus both within a 5 minute walk – you won’t find a better location for your years of study.
While with The Glassworks, you couldn’t live any closer to De Montfort University if you tried. It’s less than a minutes’ walk. And the University of Leicester isn’t much further. So, relax. You’ll never be late for lectures.
With both locations located right in the middle of Leicester’s melting pot; whatever your taste in food, culture, nightlife – you will find it all here. Leicester is just begging to be explored. Try stretching your student budget at the largest outdoor fresh food market in Europe. Or catch a game at Leicester City Football Club.

Getting serious about the environment we live in.
To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.
It’s a simple campaign! If we can reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by 1% then we will donate £10,000, 2% reduction means £20,000, 3% is £30,000 and so on, to 3 charities; BulliesOut, Planet Patrol and World Land Trust.Show me all news
