Many of Scape Mile End’s residents are students at Queen Mary University of London, which can be found just across the road. This may be the only non-campus residence in London that lets you live less than a minute from your classes! Of course, non-QMUL students are also welcome, and several of London’s top universities are a short journey away - LSE and UCL are both a single Tube ride from Scape Mile End, while you can reach City university by train or bus.
Back at home, your room is fully equipped for comfortable canalside living. Every student living at Scape Mile End has an amazingly designed studio flat, complete with ensuite and kitchenette (as well as some great extras like recessed lighting, hidden storage and heated towel rails). Each studio has been individually decorated, with clean lines and bursts of colour that are echoed throughout the building, from the lobby to the onsite gym.
As a purpose-built development that also caters to the wider student population, Scape Mile End is unusually well-equipped. As well as your mini-kitchen, you’ll find two restaurants on the ground floor - drop by Box Noodle for some quick and tasty pan-Asian food, or head to The Kitchen for homemade comfort classics. If you want to cook with friends, a communal kitchen with widescreen TV is available; or you can just let off some steam playing pool or table tennis.
This might all sound a bit hectic, but don’t worry - all residents agree to keep it down after 11pm. If you run into any problems, you can talk to the 24 hour support and maintenance staff, who’ll be on hand whether you need a new lightbulb or a great suggestion for dinner.
