About this property

Merlin Heights, a new student accommodation situated on Bath Lane in Leicester is less than 5mins away from the city centre and De Montfort University. You could be at the University of Leicester in 10mins by bus. Choose from a mix of en-suite shared flats or studios. You will find great social spaces on-site with a sky lounge, vending machines, games room, study room and weekly social events.

All rooms at Merlin Heights student accommodation are well furnished, you will have your personal bed, storage, study area and shower. However, in shared apartments, you will have a shared kitchen and living space. Shared apartments are great for an undergraduate student, as you will find great opportunities to socialise and make new friends. If you are a postgraduate student you will love the studios as they are away from distractions and a more independent set up. If the British weather permits then soak up the sun in the outdoor courtyard or relax with your friends after a long day in the common room. You could also play a game with your friends in order to refresh yourself. There is a peaceful study room on-site where you can sit down with your friends or work on your submission alone. Regular social events are organised by the management of the property and a great way to meet new people and socialise. If you are hungry but have no inclination to step out then why not grab yourself a snack from the vending machine on site. But nothing beats the view of the sky lounge. You could always grab a cup of coffee with your friends whilst you enjoy the view from up top.

Am I allowed to have guests over?

Your student room and any shared areas within your apartment will be spotlessly cleaned when you arrive, and some of our tenancies include complimentary cleaning throughout your time with us.

Will my room be inspected?

Your room/apartment will be fully inspected at least three times during your tenancy. During these inspections, we check for cleanliness, damage and for missing items.
