What our residents say
Best student accommodation I’ve ever lived in, close to the station and the town centre, lovely management (Chris, Emma, Jake and Janine), will really miss living there.
The experience at Host was fantastic and we really appreciated the kindness and help from Gary and the staff. We would definitely recommend this place for other students!
I lived here as a postgraduate student. I had a very good experience. All of the team were very helpful and always made me feel welcome. They even helped carry all of my stuff into my room. The Printworks offers a good environment for studying with sound proof rooms and the study room is very helpful when you don't want to walk to the library. The Gym downstairs was also very handy. I would definitely recommend it. The Printworks is no doubt one of the best accommodations in Exeter.
This could be the most comfort apartment in Southampton! I truly love the karaoke room and the balcony on the top floor. Amazing view and everything is new and modern.
