Here’s a few tips about life in South London from Goldsmiths student Cleido, who currently lives at Chapter Lewisham:

How long does it take you to get to uni?

Only 5 - 10 minutes on the bus to Goldsmiths from Chapter Lewisham. 

What’s your favourite lunch spot nearby?

New Cross House in New Cross (not far from uni or Chapter).

What’s your go-to local bar?

Marquis of Granby, next to Goldsmiths. 

What’s the best thing about living at Chapter?

The best thing about living at Chapter is how it gives you the opportunity to interact and connect with people you would never have thought you could connect with. Also the professionalism and organisation skills of the staff at reception and the effort they put into organising events is quite noteworthy.


North London is one of the capital’s hippest areas and a popular destination for shopping, quirky bars and restaurants, plus renowned theatres and music venues.

Being close to the heart of London and King’s Cross St. Pancras station means you’ll be ideally placed for connections across the city, to university and for trips to Europe via the Eurostar.
