It shouldn’t be forgotten also that the views from several of the shared living areas of the cluster flats are some of the best in London!

Like all urbanest properties, London King’s Cross has an exceptionally high-quality specification. For us, it is the small details that make the difference. This is why we have ensured that all our rooms have double-insulated walls to allow you to work or study in peace.

Super-fast broadband keeps you connected and the entire building (including all study and social areas) benefits from free Wi-Fi.

In addition, the rooms are extremely well appointed in general with every student benefiting from a spacious, fitted study desk, plenty of storage for clothes, shoes and books and, depending on the room you choose, either a private or a shared kitchen with first-class appliances.

The second area is designed more predominantly for social activity. On the 13th floor, our main common room is extremely spacious and offers views across London. There is a very big lounge with a supersize flat-screen TV, soft seating, and free Wi-Fi.
