Luxury Student Residences – What do they have to offer?

Living in a city like London implies that you have options to stay at budget-friendly student accommodations, but a modern space surrounded by many universities and ideally, in the zone 1 location.

This area will never fail to satisfy your needs with easy access to the most prominent attractions such as The Tate Modern, London Bridge, Regent’s Park, London Zoo and the Barbican Centre. Even Somerset House is located just 10 minutes away and is the home to the world-famous London Fashion Week.

Starting from £325 per week, this premium all-inclusive accommodation offers recently refurbished studio rooms, an on-site gym, and a standard buzzing room.



As you can tell, some of the best places to stay can be budget-friendly or very pricey but start searching early, use our every resource to your advantage, and you’ll be able to find the perfect accommodation.


What exactly do I look for when renting a place?

We all know London is a city that never sleeps, and has some beautiful places to visit. Camden town has a considerable appeal to students due to its cultural diversity, delicious eateries and an excellent area for shopping, conveniently located on the northern line (giving you access to the West End or city centre in just 10 minutes).

This popular living area includes a freshly refurbished student residence: Hawley Crescent. Hawley Crescent is any student’s dream accommodation with a TV and unlimited Wi-Fi in each twin and single studio room.

The UK has been swamped by a new category of luxury student accommodations: providing students with more comfortable, modern and several services and amenities. Hawley Crescent is part of this category that includes a secured reception entrance, and most importantly, a large communal area on the top floor, with a rooftop terrace overlooking a stunning view of London. With a TV in each room, free weekly cleaning, laundry service and a kitchenette, this space is top-rated amongst international students looking to find all-inclusive services.



Enjoy the communal rooftop terrace

From £394 per week, you can choose a twin or studio room and enjoy the communal rooftop terrace overlooking the buzzing streets of entertainment or even the relaxing view of the river.

Private student accommodations are increasing in popularity because of the flexibility it offers. We want to provide you with all the same perks as university halls of residents, such as utilities, social events and more!
