At Merlin Heights, you’re a 10-minute stroll from the city centre. Explore Leicester’s social history at the Newarke Houses Museum, home to a recreated 1950s street scene and a simulated WWI trench. Stop in at medieval Leicester Cathedral to visit the tomb of King Richard III, before browsing for the latest fashions at Highcross Shopping Centre. In the evening, head to The Cookie café for cocktails and live music, or meet your friends for dinner at one of the area’s authentic international restaurants. Try Istanbul for Turkish kofte one night, and Jamal Balti House for a fiery curry the next.

Getting to classes from Merlin Heights is simple – just roll out of your comfy double bed, choose an outfit from your spacious wardrobe, then walk six minutes to De Montfort University. You can walk to the University of Leicester in 20 minutes, but for a quicker commute you can keep a bike in the property’s safe storage. When you want to explore further afield, hop on the bus at the stop across the street.

After a busy day, check for post at reception on your way to your fully furnished apartment. Offload your books onto your bedroom desk, then get dressed for a workout and head out for a jog along the riverside pathways of nearby Castle Gardens Park. Come home for a rejuvenating shower in your private ensuite, then throw your clothes in the laundry on your way to the quiet study room. When you’re finished working, head up to the Sky Lounge to catch up with your friends on the comfy couches, or to unwind with a session at the gaming station.

Grab a latte from the coffee bar, log onto the free Wi-Fi, then update your Facebook whilst enjoying the view. Later, take a three-minute stroll to your local supermarket to stock up on ingredients, before cooking up a storm in your apartment kitchen. When you feel like a night out, popular student spot Nine Bar is your go-to for craft beer and live music. With contents insurance and security covered by your all-inclusive rent, you can have fun knowing there’s nothing to worry about.
