NB: Whilst Block A underwent major refurbishment during the construction of Blocks B and C in 2016, not all windows in Block A are able to be opened due to the building having a locally listed status and planning constraints specifying that they must remain intact as per the original 1927 specification. Block A is operated on a fully-integrated mechanical ventilation system allowing fresh air to be circulated around the building 24/7.

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


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.


I have just graduated from the University of Birmingham and I really wanted to write this letter to thank you. My first year in Birmingham was awful. I lived in a different accommodation and met the worst reception ever. All of my friends moved out in year 2. I was so lucky that I chose Host. The first day when I arrived, you greeted me so friendly and made me feel at home. Thank you so much.


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.
