living in Central London Watch
I was wondering if anyone else studying at the AA or about to study or studying in the area might have advice on where it is best to stay?
Please write asap.
I had applied to the Halls of Residence (UOL) but for some reason they refused me. Therefore I am going to apply to ISH, it's close to Regent's Park and 1.3 miles from my Uni (Birkbeck). As far as I know Nido is very expensive and Unite provide accommodations outside the city centre...
My names Frankie, I work for UNITE. I’m here to give help and advice to TSR users about UNITE accommodation.
I noticed your post and thought a response might be helpful, as we have availability in a few of our London properties, four of which are less than a mile away from the main campus of Birkbeck (UOL) in really central locations.
Just drop me a message if you’d like any more information on these, or any of our London properties.
I hope this helps,
I'm also going to the architectural Association this year and I'm staying at Gradpad accommodation Wood Lane studios. It seems really nice and its close to the tube station and in a really great part of London.
Yeah Gradpad is for postgrads. only which is one of the reasons I was drawn to it.
Seems really spacious, the area of White city/Shepherds bush is amazing plus the rooms are all studios. Iceman, I liked the mansion properties but they all seem very overpriced. Plus by the time i was ready to book al the cheaper rooms were fully let.
I heard that the flat info can be found on gumtree.com, however, you need to be careful if the photos and description match the fact. It's better to look up some info up there and check the properties by yourself before you rent it.
Best luck to you and to me
excited to know someone else going to the AA though
