I remember struggling to find student accommodation for my second year of University. At the brink of discontinuing my degree a friend contacted and offered her help. She mentioned that a new student accommodation opened nearby and that they may have vacancies. I contacted the management staff and managed to rent a room. 


Most student accommodations are small and poorly maintained by their Landlords who are trying to earn quick bucks. Drinkwater is different; you get your own soundproofed en-suite room, a large communal lounge and a magnificent kitchen which are kept spotless by the cleaners. There are a couple of things I love about this house. Fibre optic broadband, soundproofed and insulated walls, strong shower and finally, the heart-warming company of your fellow peers. The experience is truly well worth the money. I have enjoyed living here for the past two years and I would highly recommend it to all kinds of students.

I moved into Drinkwater House as a student from Scotland doing a year's industry placement here in Middlesbrough.I didn't know anyone in the area, but the management team and the other students were really welcoming - there's a lovely atmosphere in this house.

You get  privacy with your own room and bathroom, but also space to socialise in the kitchen and lounge. The location is great and the facilities are too - strong showers plus Virgin media equals win for me! A lot of student houses can get messy and dank but this house is always warm, clean and safe. I felt I got value for money and really enjoyed my year here, and would recommend it 100%.

I was an International student, and I stayed at Drinkwater House for 12 months whilst studying my Masters. I absolutely loved my stay as the place is really clean.

The other students were friendly, and the management team are always helpful. I would advise anyone studying at Teesside University, and need a place to live, they should look no further than Drinkwater House

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.

I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.

When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image.
