Location

Nestled among some of the best museums (if not all) of London, you will never be short of things to visit or do on those off days and weekends that you may have. Gloucester Road has some of the most cultured experiences, coupled with a restaurant variety to whet even the furthest countries appetite.

If it is some good hearty and contemporary British cuisine that you want to start with upon arrival then Scoff and Banter is the place to go! Boasting the best ‘fish and chips’ in the Borough, this place is also infamous for their Sunday Traditional Roast dinners and hosts some wonderful live jazz music for all to sit and enjoy over their meal.

The Malays and Singaporeans are a force to be reckoned with where their food is concerned, and Bugis Street Brasserie does not disappoint in doing the countries proud where their dishes are concerned. Named after the largest shopping district of Singapore, you will be able to find dishes from Nasi Lemak to Redang – you will not be disappointed and will find yourself back again, and again, and again……..

If you feel like you need to burn off all of that food you have consumed then head along to Cromwell Road where you can find the Natural History Museum, The Science Museum and the Victoria and Albert (V&A) Museum. Admission is free in the majority of all of the museums, however some exhibitions do come at a charge and are more often than not are totally worth it!

Features

Located in a beautiful building, this residence comes with a large communal area which is a great place for students to socialise and relax over a film or television programme or two. Whilst there is a fixed data point in all of the rooms as a standard, you will also find high speed WiFi throughout the entire residence where you can use over seven devices in one go – there’s a challenge for you!

For all of those fitness fanatics out there, or for those who just need to release some exam stress there is a modern gym on-site for resident’s usage. You will find a variety of fitness machines such as treadmills, rowers, weights sections and cable workout stations. So there is no excuse for anyone to not stay fit and healthy.

If you’re looking for a change of scenery when it comes to studying and you have exhausted your room and library, then don’t look any further than a study room within the residence for that difference. The room is specifically designed for quiet studying with data points within the room as well as the option to use the WiFi located throughout the residence.

For those who like to de-stress by doing laundry? Then look no further than the residence laundry room which is accessible all through the day and late in to the night too. Don’t worry if you have forgotten to purchase your washing powder on your last grocery run, you can buy this from the multi-lingual staff at reception who are happy to help at any time of the day or night!
