At Ability Towers, you’re a short stroll from some of London’s best cultural hotspots and you’ll never have to go far for a great cup of coffee

Living in student accommodation at Ability Towers, you’re just 15 minutes’ walk from the Barbican Centre when you fancy some culture in the form of a concert or theatre performance. Brush up on local history at the Museum of London, or venture further towards the Thames to visit St Paul’s Cathedral or walk along the river. Cross the Millennium Bridge and swing by the recently-expanded Tate Modern, and afterwards stock up on fresh local produce at Borough Market. Back home, it’s a short walk to the trendy Saint Espresso coffee shop when you want to meet your friends for artisan coffee.

At Ability Towers, you’ll live in your own self-contained one-bedroom apartment or share a two-bedroom pad with a friend. Start your day by freshening up in the bathroom, before heading to the kitchen to make a steaming cup of coffee before you head to lectures.

Your journey to campus will take just eight minutes if you’re off to City University London, or it’s around 24 minutes on the bus to University College London, London School of Economics or King’s College London. You can get to London South Bank University in half an hour on the Tube.

When you get home after a busy day on campus, connect to the free wireless internet to get stuck into some online research for your next essay. When you need a break, take a walk in nearby King Square Gardens or meet your friends for a pint down the road at The Bull’s Head pub.

When you get hungry, head back home to your apartment and rustle up a home-cooked meal in the fully-equipped kitchen. Afterwards, leave the dishwasher to handle the dirty plates and pans while you settle down in front of the flatscreen TV to catch up on your favourite shows. If you don’t feel like cooking, it’s a short walk to Fish Central for a delicious meal of fish and chips.

There’s a manager on site if you need help, and there’s a weekly linen cleaning service to keep your bed nice and fresh. You’ll also have your own washer and dryer in your apartment, so staying on top of your laundry couldn’t be easier.
