I booked my studio months in advance before moving to London, and the booking process was really smooth. Additionally, they have always been very supportive online by replying to my messages very fast, and their on-site staff is very diligent, helpful, kind and friendly. Managing an entire building and ensuring that the hundreds of residents feel like home must be hard work, and for that I personally thank you.

Review of Lewisham
Compared to the school dormitory, Chapter Lewisham's living experience is fantastic! Great location and convenient traffic. Facilities are quite complete as well.
The management team is also very responsible, although sometimes there are problems, they always fix the problems quickly and the staffs’ attitude are very good. Chapter frequently organize activities, such as the Welcome party, Christmas party, etc.
LEWISHAM IS A VIBRANT PART OF SOUTH EAST LONDON WITH GREAT TRANSPORT LINKS WHICH CAN TAKE YOU RIGHT INTO THE HEART OF THE CAPITAL
This is a corner of London which is forever evolving, and with a multi-million pound investment going into Lewisham town centre, it’s a very popular up-and-coming place to live. It is very close to creative New Cross, leafy Blackheath and the historic Royal Borough of Greenwich, all of which make fabulous days or nights out. The Lewisham street market lies at the centre of this strong community and brings a wonderful traditional feel to the area.
The most historic of London’s Royal Parks, Greenwich Park is a park with substance. As well as beautiful green open spaces, it’s also home to the Prime Meridian Line, Royal Observatory, National Maritime Museum and Old Royal Naval College.
Hosting live music 6 nights a week and a pub quiz on the 7th night, this place has many recurring events to keep you coming time and time again. Open mic nights, alternative line-ups and sometimes very famous bands are just a taster of what you can expect at this great venue.
Each year, an abandoned 1950s market is transformed into a lively street food fiesta. From sweet treats to fiery nibbles, there’s a wide range of cuisines to choose from and all are freshly made and completely individual, so it’s perfect if you fancy something a little more exciting than a sandwich.
Your guarantor can be anyone not currently in full time education. They do not need to be a UK resident either - most residents use a parent, guardian or family member. However, please note you can NOT act as your own guarantor.

If you’re experiencing problems booking online, or would prefer to speak to the Chapter Bookings team directly, don’t hesitate to give us a call. You can contact us on +44 207 293 0000 between 9:30am-6pm GMT, Monday through Saturday. We have English and Chinese speaking advisors ready to answer any questions you have, as well as taking card payments over the phone.
All your bills – water, electric, gas, internet, gym and use of all the social spaces – are included in the price. There are no hidden charges, what you see on your contract is what you pay (besides any damage to the room or fines you incur).
You are welcome to have guests through the daytime, and an overnight guest for a fair and reasonable length, to be decided by the team on site. Your guests will need to check in with the reception team, and you will be responsible for them throughout their stay. Please note, you will need written consent from management if you overnight guest is under 18 years of age.
All Chapter residents need to be over 18 from the time of moving in. This is due to the legally binding tenancy agreement that each resident is required to sign before arrival. We have no upper age limits on our accommodation, so long as the resident is in full time education for the duration of their stay.
In the UK, students are exempt from paying council tax – you won’t need to pay this, but if the council do mistakenly bill you, you will need to provide details to prove that you are in full time education.
If you bring your own TV, or want to watch or record programmes as they are shown live (including on mobile phones, tablets or computers), you will need to apply and pay for a TV License. Any TV’s provided by Chapter, either in a shared living space or communal area will have a TV License sorted.
If you’re having any problems with your room, a shared living space, or one of the communal areas, you have two options. You can log the issue using the Active Building resident portal, providing details so our maintenance team can get this sorted for you as soon as possible. Alternatively, you can come down to your reception and talk to a member of staff so we can log it on your behalf.
We want your university experience to be as positive as possible – if you are having any issues with flat mates, please let us know. We will do our best to help resolve any problems you might be having.
Your flat has its own lockable mailbox, which you will receive a key to when you check in. If any larger packages, or anything that requires a signature arrives for you, we’ll hold onto it and let you know so you can come and collect it. For security reasons, you will need to provide photo ID and give a signature to confirm collection. Post will not be given out to other residents on your behalf without written authorisation.
Two people can share some of the bigger studios at our properties, which will add an additional £50 per week to the rent. Please contact us directly if this is something you’d like to organise this. Please note, both inhabitants need to be full time students, studying at least 20 hours per week.
Unfortunately, we are only able to offer accommodation to people in full time education, studying a minimum of 20 hours per week. We can also accommodate students on internships and sandwich courses, on the provision that the placement is directly related to your course of study, and you will be returning to full time study when it finishes. If you are not sure whether you qualify, please contact the sales team.
Residents and guests of Chapter have access to a wide variety of events and social spaces across all of our London residences.
