urbanest Vauxhall

Better Student Living in Vauxhall for 2020/2021

Brand new for September 2018, urbanest Vauxhall is situated at the centre of Nine Elms – central London’s newest, most exciting riverside quarter on the south bank of the River Thames. Already one of the most vibrant areas of zone 1, Vauxhall is set to become an even more dynamic, social and cultural hub with the arrival of the new American Embassy, the completion of the iconic Battersea Power Station and its numerous parks and riverside walks.

Our state-of-the-art property is ideally located within walking distance of the Houses of Parliament, Sloane Square, Tate Britain and The Oval cricket ground, and with major rail, underground and bus stations on the doorstep, students can enjoy fast and frequent access to all that London has to offer.

Designed for You

Accommodation at urbanest is split between a range of modern, high specification studio apartments and also apartments that offer a sociable yet secure student life with either en-suite or private rooms to suit your budget.

Whichever accommodation you prefer for 2020/2021, all of our rooms have super comfortable beds with a high-quality memory foam mattress to give you a great night’s sleep and every room has luxurious underfloor heating which is controlled by an individual thermostat in your room to keep you warm during the winter months. Super-fast broadband keeps you connected and the entire building (including all study and social areas) benefits from free Wi-Fi.

Every student benefits 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. And thanks to urbanest Vauxhall’s fantastic position on the south bank of the Thames, just south of Vauxhall Bridge, many of the rooms offer incredible views of central London and far and wide across South East England.

urbanest also offers residents a range of facilities and features to make your stay in London as practical and comfortable as possible. Group and private study areas are available for all to use and a spectacular 31st floor common room is available to all residents. This amazing ‘common room in the clouds’ is the perfect place to relax and watch TV or meet up with friends and enjoy a film on the cinema screen or to just take in the stunning views of London. It also acts as an exciting venue for the parties, talks and other regular resident events arranged by the dedicated on-site urbanest team.

The building also benefits from a bicycle storage facility where we keep fold-up bikes, which are for the sole use of residents at anytime to get around town – completely free of charge.

All the other facilities you would expect from a high-quality apartment building are offered including modern, clean and efficient laundry rooms. The property also benefits from an enormous Sainsbury’s Superstore just across the road to cater for all your grocery, home furnishing and accessory needs.

On-Site Team, 24/7

Our large, friendly on-site team is on hand twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week to answer all your questions and attend to any needs you may have. So whether your dishwasher has developed a fault, you are expecting an important delivery, need to know how to get across town or you are just looking for a great local place for a drink, we will do our best to help make sure that you feel welcome and at home during your stay in London.

The transport connections

Just a few minutes’ walk from the front door is the mainline railway station, the Victoria Line tube station and Cross bus station. This puts all of London’s major universities and colleges within easy reach, with King’s College London, LSE and London South Bank University in particular just a short bus ride away. One of London’s new cycle superhighways also runs right past the building, giving easy access to the West End for anyone who prefers to get around on two wheels.

The culture

This residence offers much more than great transport links however, being situated in the heart of one of central London’s most vibrant and fast developing social and cultural hubs. For art lovers, Tate Britain is a short walk across Vauxhall Bridge and Newport Street Gallery, Damian Hirst’s incredible new project housed within a renovated Victorian scenery-painting studio, is also just a short walk away.

The things to do in Vauxhall

The area is renowned for its street food markets, fine dining pubs, an excellent variety of restaurants and its cutting edge underground club scene. But if you simply want to relax at the weekend, then there is plenty for you to enjoy, including the lavender gardens and tennis courts of Vauxhall Park, the historic Vauxhall Pleasure Garden, the ‘Vauxwall’ climbing centre and of course the beautiful riverside walks along the south bank of the Thames.

The river is directly accessible across the road from this urbanest accommodation at the impressive St Georges riverside development with its bars, restaurants, gyms and even a flotation tank in which to chill. And while you are exploring the area, why not discover that perfect, unique accessory for your new room amongst the architectural curiosities and bric-a-brac available at the iconic Brunswick House!

Luxury accommodation

If the area alone doesn’t sway you, urbanest Vauxhall is renowned as luxury student accommodation. So while there are many things to do in the area, your digs might just make you want to stay in. With studio apartments and private en-suites available, you can have your own personal space to concentrate on your studies or just wind down with views of the River Thames. This premium accommodation for students also features memory foam mattresses, underfloor heating and super-fast broadband, so you can remain cosy at all times.
