How to skip the queues and bag yourself an apartment in Piccadilly Residence; York’s most sought after rental accommodation!
With everything from a resident’s lounge to a fitness suite, it’s not hard to understand why every year Piccadilly Residence has a queue of students out the door, eager to bag themselves an apartment in one of York’s most popular hot spots. Never heard of it you say? Well that’s because it’s one of those ‘if you know, you know’ kind of places, the kind that gets such good reviews, word of mouth alone is enough to generate more interest than there are apartments. But that doesn’t mean you’re going to miss out! It seems you’ve come to the right place at the right time because YPP have just launched their apartments for July 2020! This means that right now if you click here, you can see the newly launched apartments on their website, ready for you to book a viewing today! But be quick, these apartments are like gold dust… they won’t be round for long!

Renting in Piccadilly Residence is about more than just the apartments though. Yes they’re really cool, kitted out with Smart TVs, stylish furniture and high-end appliances, but what really makes this place different is the welcoming sense of community and the upgraded lifestyle that comes with it. YPP, the brains behind the building, have created a social hub where people can live, relax, socialise, study and exercise, all under one roof. It’s genius really! It also sits right in the middle of their portfolio, somewhere comfortably between high-end and budget, which is why it’s so perfect for students.
When you speak to the residents it’s clear that there’s a lot of love for the building. The atmosphere is upbeat and it’s apparent that people have really made friends, taking advantage of the fantastic communal areas. The lounge alone has a large sofa, smart TV and book exchange for chilling out after a long day, plus a gaming area with board games, a pool table and a football table! What more could you want?
The fitness suite next door is equally as impressive too. You can forget standing round waiting for a free treadmill because the fully-equipped space has everything from free-weights to yoga balls and is exclusively for YPP tenants, free of charge! The bright, open reception area is colourful and welcoming as well, yet has a secure fob entry and CCTV for tenant’s safety. As well as overnight security guards, Piccadilly Residence also has a concierge service throughout the day, there to help you with anything you need throughout your stay. With parcel management and an in-house maintenance team this place really gives ‘all-inclusive’ a new meaning.
The key to Piccadilly Residence’s success doesn’t just lie in the building facilities themselves though. It comes from the way in which YPP utilise them, creating a family-like feel to the residence. They hold regular activities, parties and perks that everyone can get involved with, encouraging new tenants to get to know each other and really building on the social element of being a student. Something that we don’t think you’ll find in any other accommodation. Whether it’s a full-blown party with a DJ or simply just free fruit on a Friday, there’s something for everyone to get involved with. A favourite amongst the tenants seems to be their regular free gym classes, discounted coffee vouchers, positive posters and competitions. Where do we sign up!?
Finally, we found it really great to see that YPP don’t just put up a Christmas tree in December like a lot of other agents do, they actually celebrate a number of different holidays and events from all over the world, making it a popular choice for international students. Whether it’s China’s famous Singles Day or the start of Eid, YPP are really good at celebrating different religions and making people feel at home wherever they’ve come from. We highly recommend you watch the clip below from their recent welcome party which gives you just a small idea of what Piccadilly Residence has to offer.
