What Students Think
"Code has been excellent all year, has been a complete turn around since the traditional basic student house I stayed in last year. Buildings are modern, room is very well laid out, gym is excellent and the location is fantastic with DMU, the leisure centre and Tesco located so near by. The deposit from Code was 300 pounds and they allow for general wear and tear - so a well kept room should have this deposit returned which is good as I had a bad experience with this last year with a student house. Overall - Very good - would recommend to those in their final year at uni!"

"Really enjoyed my time at CODE, staff are very friendly, flats are modern, many facilities like a state of the art gym, nice and welcoming common room and most of all the price is excellent.

"I received brilliant customer service from the sales representative whilst viewing the accommodation at Code today. I was shown around the whole complex and had all of my questions and queries answered. The rooms were very impressive and once I made my decision to book a room, the process was very quick and easy."
"Such a friendly and pleasant atmosphere and as well as kind staff that always joking, helpful and most importantly providing such great service to us students. Food is always good, specially with the healthy options available just couldn't get any better. I'm failing to spot a flaw. "
"I was the Manager of Customer Service for Air Canada in cargo, now retired. Your service reps are impeccable, polite and well conversed with all information on hand. Great"
"Didn't not find anything that needed to be improved in the short amount of time, He was very helpful and talking to him made me and my family feel more comfortable about staying with yourself in September"
"Lived in code for a couple of years now and it has been a great experience. The staff are very helpful and kind, and the rooms are always kept to a high standard. There are plenty of fun and useful facilities, and it feels like a great place to be as a student."
"The environment is very good with the cafe, BBQ and public playing area. the river review is amazing."
"Been living at CODE for nearly a year now and i absolutely love it! The rooms are spacious, modern, and homely and for the price it's a bonus! Staff are lovely and cant do enough to help you! makes living away from home that much easier knowing you can ask for help any time you need it! The onsite facilities are also an added bonus with the gym, cinema room, communal area and the cafe really are fantastic. With only being a short distance to DMU, and shops along braunstone gate and narborough road your in the centre of everything. The surrounding area is quite so you never have to worry about noises waking you up!, if there is any noise around your room all you have to do is message security and they sort it straight away. I cant big up this place enough it has really made second year of university go amazing with space to myself but enough activities to keep me entertained. Already rebooked for third year, so bring on September 2016!!"
"Great accommodation for students of all levels and plenty of social opportunities and areas. Definitely recommend. :)"
"Super friendly, make you feel so at home and just generally put you in a great mood with their bubbly attitudes."
"All the staff are always friendly and eager to help with any issues, the facilities included are of an excellent standard and the whole site is always spotlessly clean. A great, quiet, safe place to spend any year of your university degree."
"Absolutely love the cafe!!! Great prices that student can afford, tasty food and amazing drinks (especially juices yum yum). Mark is always very friendly and provides great service:)"
"Had a great time living at Code. Definitely worth the extra money for comfortable surroundings and the facilities they offer. I'm a mature student and found it great for a more chilled, private lifestyle but there was also a lot of events and things going on for people who want to get involved. Staff could never do enough the few times I had problems and had to go into the office. I'm moving cities or would of signed up to Code for the full three years. Don't have a bad word to say! Thank you."
"I'm honestly not sure what you could do to improve as the experience was more than helpful and nice. I happily return to the chats whenever I have a question as the customer service is just fantastic!"

"Excellent service from the team at western road leicester, from viewing the property to sorting the paper work out. quick at informing and keeping us informed, polite and helpful staff when we had the viewing."
"All issues have been resolved in a timely manner. I feel confident that if an issue were to arise, it would be dealt with efficiently. Thank you! "
"I was there saturday morning 28th Nov and was dealt with in a very professional courteous manner by all who dealt with us. Emily was particularly good and very friendly made us feel at ease. "
"All my questions were resolved really well and in detail, so nothing constructive to report back on other than keep up what you are doing :) thanks so much "
"Living at CODE is lovely, and it's like a little community on its own. It has a cafe that comes in handy during submissions. "
"Staff are lovely and engaging, and the rooms a good quality for the price. Not to mention a fab cheap cafe that looks like it should charge much more for the quality of the food and drink you get (please don't though! haha) The free gym is great, used by both fitness fanatics and people like me and my partner who are in the process of getting that great summer body. The list of facilities are endless if you want to use them, not to mention while living at the Western road block, it feels like your own little utopia almost how the facility is laid out. "
"Went to query about rooms for 16/17 and service was brilliant. All questions were answered and room booking was made very clear and simple for me."
"I spoke to two different people, they were both really nice and helpful, I have now reserved a room and will be coming to see the accommodation during the week "
"What's not to love? The room is a great size and comes with everything you need, the free internet, and now on site wifi, is plenty fast for whatever you need, the on-site laundrette has enough machines to go around, the café has great food that is very affordable for a student and the whole site is just amazing. Definitely worth a look around on an open day if you can because it's cheaper, and nicer than the university owned alternatives in my opinion. "
"The level of service was great, very friendly fast and supportive. 5*****"
"The good thing about CODE it`s that the Staff cares about your living and want you to have a happy stay at their accommodation. Code have a lovely gym for tenants to use and to stay fit and have a healthy lifestyle when you study. They also run gym classes for the tenants at the studio/Yoga room for people who would like that. Your flat is bright and light, and have everything you need after a long day at University. If you are too tired to make food CODE have a lovely Café with very good prices for food. From a small homemade juice to a dinner meal. Code have many rooms that you can borrow like the Studio, cinema, working room etc. If you pop down to the office, the staff will help you with everything to make your day easier. CODE is a modern accommodation that you will love and most important a strong security to make you feel safe. "

"The best place I lived in while I was at university. I only wish I had stayed there for all three years. It was an amazing environment to live it and made focusing on my studies so much easier. I loved the cafe onsite as everyone was so friendly and welcoming and the food was great. I did wish the gym was open 24/7 though, rather than closing 12-6am. My flat was the best though, there was literally nothing else I needed in there as a student. And the maintenance team is epic and super fast. I'd recommend anyone looking for accommodation to consider CODE!"
"Code has become my home away from home. The surroundings and facilities are amazing to have at your doorstep."

"CODE is Just a complete package ! Great facilities, near the university, great atmosphere, lovely staff, best part The Cafè, in short it gives me a Homestay Flavour :) "
"Great place for nursing students to stay. I've rebooked for my second year. Anna is really nice and helpful and will inform me about parcels so I can plan to collect them around my placement shifts. All other staff are friendly including night and weekend security. Nice open communal areas and quiet study rooms. I like that they put on events to help you meet other people that are living here. Would recommend to anyone coming to study in Leicester. "
"I’ve loved living at code this year, it’s like living at a hotel! My room is perfect to personalize and look forward to coming back to it after lessons, a night out or even coming back from home. I do a lot of personal artwork in my free time and my room is spacious enough for me to spread out and get creative! It easily motivates me to get on with my coursework having such a fantastic workspace. The gym has very flexible hours too which is really convenient to fit into my schedule and leaves me with no excuse not to go, as well as it being right on site. The staff are amazing! They are really kind and easy to approach, never leaving a problem unsolved. I’ve rebooked my same room for next year as moving to Code has been one of my favourite experiences since coming to DMU."
"THE student accommodation if you study at DMU or Leicester University. I've lived here for 2 years and was stunned by the low price high quality rooms / service they offer. Especially after moving to study at UoN I now know how little i've paid at c0de. Aside from the great accomodation and staff they even offer a non profit café where you can actually get a decent mean for less than 3£. If I were you I would book a flat on the highest floor as the view is stunning"
"Living in code is an exceptional experience, It's an experience unlike any other. Having lived in Oadby student village, private housing, both of those experiences were the complete opposites, whilst the University of Leicester halls was excellent in providing great social vibes and events to better help make friends and the rooms were generous and modern, compared to how awful sharing a house and dealing with unfair an unfair letting agency, code offers a dream come true of an alternative. Code is undeniably the best student living experience I have had in my three years, and I have immediately after 10 weeks re-applied to live in my same room because my love for code can not be understated. Code offers facilities and constant opportunities to mingle and make friends, offering free pizza, music, drinks and snacks, to really engage with your neighbours who may be shy or you may not be ready or sure to open up and get to know, they're fantastic ice-breakers. The facilities like the gym are state of the art, and the cleanliness of code is fantastic. Treatment of my room is like my home, that's how much I love living here, so hoovering mopping and having these facilities also is just fantastic. Not to mention how helpful and friendly the reception staff are with all my enquiries. "
"Living in code is an exceptional experience with its peaceful environment which is why I'm living year again for my second year. The staff are great and friendly and always there when you need them"
