Our King’s College London Accommodation

We have worked closely with KCL to provide their students with a premium experience throughout their studies; you can even be placed in flats exclusively reserved for King’s students while socialising with residents studying across the many different institutions in the capital. The two closest locations are urbanest City and urbanest King’s Cross, both with unique facilities to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

Urbanest Battersea

Overlooking the River Thames and the iconic chimneys of Battersea Power Station. This is our brand-new nest, which provides sector leading energy efficient student accommodation, with incredible views of London and easy access to many universities around central London.

With a zone 1 tube station minutes from the front door, and plenty of hospitality, retail and activities on your doorstep, our Battersea student accommodation is part of a thriving new neighbourhood. It is also a building leading the charge for sustainability through its Passivhaus construction, which will deliver a living environment offering controlled air temperature providing heating and cooling across the year.

Why Live In Battersea?

Sustainable Living at urbanest Battersea

One of the most unique aspects of our Battersea student accommodation is its structure and design.

This is a state-of-the-art building that is leading the revolution in sustainable buildings. Our Battersea accommodation was constructed to Passivhaus standards.

Buildings are responsible for 35% of the world’s energy consumption, but through Passivhaus, we were able to build self-sufficient student accommodation. With very high insulation levels, airtight building fabrics and ‘thermal bridge-free’ construction, we aim to recover 80% of all heat.

It is due to Passivhaus that our Battersea student accommodation has heat recovery ventilation, meaning that energy is not lost through the building but is kept cool enough to remain comfortable. What’s more, with all air being filtered, air quality is better, especially for those suffering from allergies.
