Great location and facilities. Cambridge campus is excellent place to study and work. You can commute with a bike or take bus. It is ideal place to students. It is near train station, supermarkets, shopping centre, restaurants, gym, cinema. You will find a lovely landscape. The room is ensuit. You will only share the kitchen with 7 kind flatmates. The reception is awesome. And the staff members are so polite. The common are is perfect to study or have a break.

The location of these halls is excellent, and makes it super easy to get the train home when you're feeling homesick! However, the staff that manage CB1 are very average; for example, it took them 12 weeks to replace my broken mattress. Also, when the water didn't work for 3 days, they gave us very few water bottles to compensate. Overall, the location makes up for the fact that the staff aren't the best, and that the room is quite small. However, you do get a (small) double bed which is great!

The area is so modern and great to live within, eateries, supermarkets, gym and cinema are within 10 minute walk from the halls which is perfect. Only downside is the noise outside late at night when groups of people wait for buses for town.

Very good location, urban area quite after business hours, great friendships to be made, apartments studios 10/10

Great staff, good size room and nice en suite. Modern kitchens with plenty of space for flats of 8 people. A nice big common room with activities set up throughout the year. Great location as it is by the train station, a short walk into the town, to the leisure park and of course to university campus.

Cozy rooms with great facilities, super friendly staff and constant security is a plus. Also super close to the train station and many corner shops!

The location is amazing it is near the train station and close to town centre. Always buses available to town centre and a Tesco which is useful. Around is a cinema, Tesco express and Nando's which is good. The room is nice you have your own bathroom and double bed. The people will make the experience though.

The location of CB1 is perfect for all types of students, ranging from convenient shops and restaurants to the close by gym and train station. The rooms are very spacious with generous sized bathrooms and showers compared to other Cambridge based student accommodation. Limited washing machines are a slight problem, however outside of peak hours they do not cause any hassle. The main downside of CB1 is the noise levels. With the opposite railyard accommodation building combined with the bus stops and train station it can be difficult to sleep at night. However, I would not let this discourage you from living there.

Perfect for all my needs , close to city centre. Great people around. Best experience I’ve ever had

Nice and modern. Good location. However because it is the biggest accom it gets very loudy, lots of noice when people scream etc

Good location from ARU and right by the train station and bus station so amazing accessibility. En-suite bathrooms for everyone.

I can’t fault the security guys they are amazing ! However when it comes to dealing with particularly difficult tenants I feel it could be delt with better.

Great location close to the station and shops. Always warm and clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Safe.

CB1 is in a good location, right by the station, lots of shops and a 15 minute walk into town. It is also just 15-20 minutes from uni. The social experience is the best part of CB1. I have made many friends while here within my flat and from other flats.

Great location, lovely staff and spacious rooms but very expensive for An en suite in a flat with 8 others!

Location was brilliant. Just over the road from the train station only 20 minutes from the university and not too far from the shops.
