Too much student noise!

Review Date Jun 2021

24/7 concierge whom are all very helpful. The only down side is when there are some agency staff they struggle with aspects. The rooftop is lovely but has been out of use for 6 months and no rent payments have been compensated for this considering a premium is being paid for these lovely facilities

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

This is a lovely apartment block located right in the heart of the city centre. Everything is walking distance so very convenient. Unfortunately there are a lot of noisy students that wake up and start their day in the early hours of the morning. So beware banging on walls, the smell of smoking in corridors and loud music at 1am isn’t uncommon. I was made to believe this is a professional let only and very few students but speaking to a resident when I moved in made me realise this is a student let for sure. Disappointing.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I wish I hadn’t been told by the manager that they only allow very few vetted students to live here. There are more students than professionals and believe me, they let it be known. Loud music playing early hours of the morning, banging on walls just for fun (not sure why this is fun) no regard for neighbours. Really disappointing as the Wullcomb has potential to be the best place in the city!

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

With a lot of persistent emails, things eventually get sorted which is really disappointing as this aspect let’s the wullcomb down

Manager Response

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review; all feedback is always appreciated.
The 5th floor communal area was closed for a period of time due to the pandemic – which disproportionally affected Leicester as a city. This was not a decision made by the site team or the company as a whole, it was following government advice to ensure the safety of our customers. To offset this, we allowed residents to book our private games room free of charge for sole use – with an enhanced cleaning protocol in place – hopefully you benefitted from this.
During this period, staff were still available 24/7 – often helping those isolating – collecting rubbish & delivering supplies.
In terms of who lives in the building, the overwhelming majority are working professionals. We do have welcome students – we value all of our residents equally. Everyone is subject to the same referencing process & allowed to book any apartment – not something that is permitted in other buildings in the City Centre. We do this to help our community thrive.
If you ever have any issues at night or at any other time, please contact our 24 hour concierge, they will act immediately.
Please feel free to contact me personally if you wish to sit down & discuss any matters you are concerned about. We really want to ensure your experience is a positive one.
