Staying at iQ Shoreditch

Most studios are around 17-19m2 in size but there are also larger Gold and Platinum studios that are about 20m2 and 23m2 respectively.
There is an on-site laundry room where you can wash your clothes. The controlled access gates, CCTV cameras and a security officer patrolling 24 hours a day make sure you can always feel safe in your new home. If anything should break, just contact the maintenance team that is on-site 24 hours a day and they’ll take care of it.
Things included in the rent

Spend your free time at the iQ Shoreditch
After you’ve spent some time studying in the privacy of your own room or in the dedicated study facilities of the property, you’ll want to spend some free time.
