You can be at the Russell Square/Bloomsbury university hub in 5 short tube stops, but at iQ Tufnell House you’d be forgiven for thinking you were much further out of the city. Overlooking parkland, the bright and breezy flats offer much more than a desk and somewhere to rest your head. In the newly renovated common room, play fussball, table tennis or pool with your mates; challenge someone on the game consoles; or curl up in front of the Sky TV on one of the comfy lounges.
When you have to study, your spacious, elegantly-furnished rooms with leafy outlooks give you room to stretch out and make your pad your own.
When the weather is good (London does have a summer, promise!) head outside to enjoy the landscaped grounds, shoot some hoops or cook a meal on the BBQ under a wooden canopy.
You’d never have to leave Tufnell House - they even have a gym, laundry, cinema and 100MB of superfast free Wi-Fi. But when you do, you are moments from busy Tufnell Park and its tube stop, not to mention the countless shops, cafés and bars, including classic gig venue The Forum.
The markets and nightlife of Camden Town are just two stops away, while it is a pretty walk to the peace and serenity of magical Hampstead Heath a few streets off.
By stepping just a little way out from the centre and heading to Tufnell House, you might see what the real London has in store.
