Bloomsbury:

 

Do you like it leafy? Tufnell House is in a very green part of London, Tufnell Park in Islington and a short walk away from the charming Hampstead Heath. Next to the student residence are playing fields with tennis courts too, so you have plenty of opportunities to get some fresh air between your studies. Social life isn’t compromised, though, this area has a fabulous choice of independent places to eat and drink, but you’re only a short tube or bus ride away from central London as Tufnell House is in Zone 1 / 2, making it a swift journey to Regent’s University, University College London, the University of Westminster, City University and the University of the Arts. There is a great choice of accommodation here, too, with en suite rooms, flats, studios and some special choices in the separate ‘Gatehouse’ for final year and postgraduate students. The onsite team are awesome, and organise plenty of events for residents to get to know each other. It’s a warm, welcoming and restful place.



Hoxton:

If you like a cool vibe, Hoxton is your place. An area of London known for its creative inhabitants it has a vibrant, diverse community and is close to many of London’s central universities. The nearest tube (Old Street) and train station (Hoxton) are a few minutes away and there is also a bus stop right outside the residence, so you’ll have no problem getting to university or to any of the wonders that London has to offer.

Ah, Shoreditch! Cooler than cool, this is a fabulous residence! It is only a couple of minutes from Old Street tube station so you can get to University easily, and you can even walk if you’re attending the London College of Fashion and City, University of London. Shoreditch is trendier than a trendy thing – a wide range of bars, cafes, restaurants and entertainment lie on your doorstep. If you want some greenery, you’re moments away from Shoreditch Park and Regent’s Canal. But you don’t even need to go out to enjoy cool spaces – iQ Shoreditch has a cinema room, gym, social and study areas and even art and dance studios! And to top it all, it has an awesome Sky Lounge with incredible views across the city. Truly beautiful.

It’s full of street art, trendy cafes, hip bars and vintage shops, not to mention the fantastic Whitechapel Gallery. Our accommodation here is made up of en suite rooms and apartments and the facilities include plenty of study and lounge spaces and a gym to work off all those amazing meals from local eateries!







Paris Gardens:

This is a unique residence, located close to Blackfriars tube, Waterloo and plenty of bus routes. It’s super close – a twelve-minute walk – to London South Bank University and King’s College London Waterloo Campus but as the transport links are so great you can get to many London universities easily. Paris Gardens has a modern, hotel kind of vibe, only five minutes from the River Thames, and you can choose an en suite room or a studio here, and benefit from all of the exciting social spaces including the gorgeous roof terrace.







Bankside:

A short walk from Paris Gardens the Bankside Residence is one of our most popular, and you can see why! Firstly, it’s next to the river, which is very cool! And on top of that it is very close to the hip hangouts of the Tate Modern, the Southbank and Borough Market (YUM!!). The studios here are just fabulous, some are new for the 2020/21 intake too but book fast. There’s a gym, a gaming zone, private dining area for those impressive dinner parties, study space and an outdoor courtyard.

King’s College London’s Waterloo campus and London South Bank University are within 15 minutes’ walk, while the scenic banks of the Thames offer countless dining and entertainment options, just moments from our door, with the best views!






The Arcade:

Located in Holloway, The Arcade is perfect for those at London Metropolitan University. But don’t be mistaken – as the Holloway Road tube station is close by you can hop into Central London within 10 minutes

Nearby you’ll find a cinema, the Arsenal Emirates Stadium and the vibrant Nag’s Head Covered Market where you can shop for delicious ingredients and eat at one of the many authentic eateries.

The set up at The Arcade is more of a flat-mate set up, sharing facilities and this is a fantastic experience and unbeatable for getting to know your new friends. Residents at this property are able to use the Gyms at our Highbury and Tufnell House properties so they won’t miss out on anything. WiFi, bills, contents insurance and free weekly cleans of your shared kitchen and bathroom are all included in the price.




Pure Highbury:

Finsbury Park tube is only moments away from this vibrant residence, making it a five-minute journey into King’s Cross and all of its connections and the central universities.

There are a great range of shops and restaurants to visit with your new flat mates and afterwards you can relax in the range of social spaces, the cinema, the games room or the lounge! And in the morning.. the gym.. maybe.. At Highbury you can choose from en suite rooms or studios, the latter have a kitchenette and living area.






Pure Aldgate:

This residence is in a great location – just a four-minute walk from Aldate East Tube and close to all the art, shops and restaurants this area can offer you. It’s easy to walk to Hult International Business School and Barts & London School of Medicine, but the tube and transport links make it easy to get to wherever you need to go and study – socialise – and grab yourself some culture.

You can choose from en suite rooms with shared kitchen and living space, or a self-contained studio with its own kitchenette and living area. Whichever you choose, there’s also a cinema room, plenty of social spaces and study areas, a gym and an impressive 18th floor sky lounge so you can look out over the city.





Pure City:

It’s clear in the name where this residence is.. the City! Close to the Barbican, Old Street tube, City-University of London and as you’d expect, it’s linked incredibly well with transport to anywhere you’d like to go in London so it’s a great choice. Here you can choose between the beautiful en suite rooms, our studios and apartments, and whichever suits you best, make sure you join in the social events laid on by our team, they’re a great way to meet new friends and relax. On top of the social areas you’ll also be able to work up a sweat in the gym and watch a favourite movie in the cinema room, as well as take a breather in the outside space. And.. relax!






Hammersmith:

If you like studio living, this is the place for you. The studios are ideal for a more independent lifestyle with their smart décor, your own study area, shower room and your own kitchenette to whip up those study snacks.

It is only two minutes from the tube so you can get to where you need to go without a fuss and just on your doorstep is a vibrant community with countless shops, bars and restaurants and only ten minutes from the River Thames.

Although this residence is great for independent living, our team organise social events for you to meet up with your fellow students, and you can use the gym, games room, dining rooms, cinema and yoga studio depending on what mood you are in!
