What's it like?


A student city that prides itself on diversity, Leicester really is a melting pot of cultural influences. And while it might be rich in history – not least as the burial ground of King Richard III – it’s a place with a firm eye on the future. As seen in its award-winning venues, contemporary restaurant scene and buzzing nightlife.

What our residents say


The service provided by reception staff and the caretakers is excellent – everyone is friendly and helpful.


Splendid! Absolutely marvelous! It's a warm, homely feeling. The staff play the leading role in making this come about. Friendly, always ready to assist. Always sorting any issues out immediately. Home.


The staff members are always so friendly and helpful. Always on top of any issues that occur. The Old Dairy is a great place to live as it has many facilities, like the study area and the lounge to just chill or play pool in.


I think this place is great, friendly staff willing to help at the drop of a hat. Any problems sorted within 24hrs. Two minutes from town and uni.
