At iQ, you’ll be living on the actual site of the old Hammersmith Palais. For almost a century this iconic venue played host to some of the biggest names in music, from The Beatles to U2.
With the Hammersmith Underground station a two-minute walk away, getting to know the city will be a breeze. Any one of the four tube lines will have you in central London and its many colleges in under 20 minutes. You can stroll to LAMDA and Imperial College London (Charing Cross campus) in a little over 10 minutes. UAL (Lime Grove) is also just up the road, in neighbouring Shepherd’s Bush.
The design of the building pays homage to the area’s roots, with famous musicians adorning walls throughout the interior. Hanging comic book covers and Union Jack couches are some of the modern, artistic touches. There are long, comfortable couches to catch up with a mate, a foosball table for a competitive time out and even a piano if you’re talented, or game enough to show off your skills!
Studios boast deluxe ensuite bathrooms, a kitchenette, Wi-Fi and underfloor heating so you’ll have no trouble staying warm on some of those chilly London nights.
A huge courtyard gives plenty of space to sneak in some study in the sun on a warm day and a cinema on the premises could be just the tonic to give yourself a break from the books.
Onsite maintenance and 24-hour security also give you that added peace of mind.
When it comes time for some rest and relaxation away from home, grab a spot by the Thames and watch the rowing boats glide by over a pint or a cup of English Breakfast tea.
