Studying in London is many students’ idea of the ultimate university experience.
One of the most iconic and instantly-recognisable places in the world did not get its reputation by accident. People travel from all over the world to take in the culture, night life and famous tourist attractions.
More often than not, those people will tell you that they would have to revisit the capital 10 times over in order to see and do everything that they had planned.
So the opportunity to actually live and study in London for several years – after securing a place at one of its fantastic universities and settling in to student accommodation – is understandably viewed as a dream come true.
And while it is a memorable experience to learn about the city with new or existing friends, it can be just as special to take it all in with your significant other.
Twin studios are tailor-made for couples to live in student accommodation while they experience university life in London, as a dual occupancy arrangement.
For couples, finding the right student accommodation that meets their specific needs gets university life off to a great start. A new environment, quite possibly in a new city, is an exciting new challenge for a relationship.
Homes for Students is one of the UK’s leading providers of student accommodation. One of its London sites, Garrow House, is close to the world-famous Notting Hill, where you will find Portobello Market filled full of great places to shop such as boutique shops, vintage stores, independent theatres and, of course, Notting Hill Carnival.
Garrow House is super-stylish, offering spacious and modern studios in its picturesque canal side setting. There is the option to have a large studio or twin studio, and you can choose your own personal balcony space, boasting wonderful views of the city and the canal.
For couples, a double bed can be added to the room if requested. Each room features a large, comfortable bed, a big flat screen TV, a modern en-suite bathroom, stylish kitchenettes, two large floor to ceiling wardrobes and plenty of storage.
There are transportation links nearby to take you to your chosen destination in the city, and a wide choice of underground stations including Westbourne Park, Ladbroke Grove and Royal Oak. On top of this there are 24-hour bus services which can transport you to and from central London. Bus stops are conveniently located only one minute away from Garrow House.
You can get to the University of Westminster or Regent Business School on the bus in no more than 20 minutes, or alternatively cycling enthusiasts can get there via bike in around the same amount of time. Homes for Students offers secure bike storage at the property.
