The Castings

The Castings is our brand new student residence which opened in September 2014. It’s an impressive building with 633 cluster flats of 3 to 6 bedrooms. It also has 20 studio apartments, with dual occupancy available upon request. The site was formally occupied by the Robert Castings metal foundry, hence the name!  The Castings, is the perfect location to make the most of the diverse social and academic scene that Huddersfield has to offer.

Perfectly situated student accommodation in Huddersfield

It’s a relief to have somewhere so close to call home when faced with those long days in the library – and those even longer nights in the student union. The Castings offers both a place to knuckle down with your work and to get away from the stresses that come from being on campus. Our modern, vibrant rooms are sure to be popular with Huddersfield students. Not least because of the location; it barely takes ten minute to walk from the University of Huddersfield and all Town Centre amenities. Bus and train links are a short walk away.

All rooms include study desk, study chair, ¾ size bed, large wardrobe, draws and shelf storage. Each room is thoughtfully furnished and to a high standard. Including those little touches that make the difference; our plugs are within straightener cord length of the mirror and our showers have a full door and tray to catch the water! Modern wood affect flooring is fitted throughout, which is soft and warm to touch. All cluster flats come with a shared kitchen/lounge area. This really does make you feel at home and offers a space to socialise with flat mates.  Large fridge-freezers, oven, hob, lots of cupboard space, a combi microwave, breakfast bar, spacious comfy seating area and large flat screen TVs all add to the value you get for your money.

For your peace of mind

Students living here can enjoy the convenience of an on-site maintenance and management team. The Castings team take a lot of pride in the accommodation and ensuring that each and every student has a fantastic student experience.  Our team are available 24 hours to ensure exceptional customer service and quick repair times. The safety and security of our students is a top priority to the staff at The Castings, and we appreciate that many parents feel more secure about leaving their children once they have established that the staff running our Huddersfield student accommodation are always ready to assist.

If all that wasn’t enough we have thrown in bags of communal space for our residents. A private launderette, common room, study room, games room and TV room. Our landscaped courtyard offers seating and ample bike storage facilities. Rents include all utility bills, 30Mb broadband/Wi-Fi connection and contents insurance at no extra charge.
