Student Housing - which to choose?! watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi everyone,

    Thank you for taking the time to look at this!

    I'm not sure which student accommodation to choose in London. I'm going to LSE for my Master's degree, and there are TOO many choices for student accommodation.

    I have friends that recommended Pure Highbury as it is not too expensive. They said they really liked it, so I have a room on hold there. However, I'm not convinced yet. I was looking at Pure City, Chapter Spitalfields and Chapter South Bank. I don't know what to choose and I'm not sure how to narrow down my decision, especially since I live abroad and don't have the ability to go check out the place in person. Even if I did, an accommodation can seem nice, but actually have rude staff and awful noise problems.

    I'd appreciate any advice on choosing housing from afar, or even just recommendations of places to stay (or not to stay) from experience.

    Thanks again!

    hey ! I'm having the same problem you had a year ago. Which student housing did you end up choosing ? was it a good experience ?
