We currently provide accommodation in 6 great London locations and have a brand new building opening in September 2016 in Lewisham.
Our rents are all-inclusive of utility bills and contents insurance, so there’s no extra cost for your electricity, gas or water. We also provide free superfast broadband internet with Wi-Fi so you can connect from your bedroom, kitchen or from the social spaces within your Chapter.
Other onsite facilities include professional service teams, laundry, post room service, great social and study spaces and a 24/7 on site staff presence, meaning we’ll always be able to help you if you have any emergencies out of office hours.
What makes Chapter unique and stand out from the crowd is that we don’t just provide our residents with one home. When you live in a Chapter residence, you become a Chapter Member, meaning that you have access to all of the social spaces and events across all other London Chapters. You’ll be spoilt for choice for great places to hang out with friends and great parties to go to.
