5 REASONS WHY CHAPTER IS PERFECT FOR POSTGRADS
Published: 12 Sep 18
Planning to study a postgrad and looking for the perfect place to stay? Here’s 5 reasons why Chapter is the ideal place to live as a postgrad studying in London:
1. Stay in a quieter location
We’re sure you partied it up in halls during your freshers’ years, but as a postgrad you probably want to live somewhere that’s a little quieter with less house parties in the room next door. Chapter Portobello is a small and friendly property in a tranquil location by the canal, ideal for a more relaxed student experience and the perfect location for postgrads. The West London property is just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Central London to avoid the chaos, but perfectly connected to the city with excellent transport links into Baker Street and Kings Cross St Pancras.
2. Live with like-minded people
After studying as an undergraduate, you probably have an idea of kind of people you want to surround yourself with for the rest of your studies. We find that Chapter Portobello is most popular with postgrads, and living with like-minded people who have the same goals and priorities as you can make life so much easier. These are the kinds of people that you’ll make valuable lifelong friendships with.
3. Access to on-site study spaces
We know that being a postgrad comes with an increased amount of work, and who wants to spend time travelling to the university library every day just to get some work done? To save you the journey and valuable study time, all of our residences have on site study spaces designed specifically for your studying needs. From group study areas, presentation facilities and meeting rooms, to art studios with mannequins for fashion students, we’ve got you covered. Most of our areas are bookable and open 24 hours a day.
4. Be with other postgrads from your university
With 10 residences across London zones 1 & 2, it’s likely you’ll end up staying at the same Chapter as other postgrads from your university, and possibly from your course. With a large number of postgrad students from Kings College and UCL living at Chapter, it’s the perfect opportunity to get to know more people from your university studying similar subjects. Whether it’s in your shared apartment (if you opt for one as opposed to a studio), or at one of our resident events, there are over 40 universities and colleges in Central London alone, so chances of you meeting fellow postgrads from your university at Chapter are pretty high.
5. Attend a variety of events
As a postgrad, it’s probably not your first time living away from home, and we’d guess you’re not looking to go out and party every night to enjoy your first taste of freedom. However, you might be more inclined to spend your free time playing games with friends, going to watch a movie, seeing some live music, or attending a yoga class. At Chapter we have a wide variety of events to cater for every mood, so there’s sure to be something that tickles your fancy between all that studying. Check out our wide range of events here and find something that suits you.
