Living at the Hive

Nobody wants to spend their time at University worrying about bills, maintenance, or fixing things that go wrong. That's why we're here to take the weight off your shoulders.

At The Hive, we look after every last detail, ensuring you've got time (and money) to enjoy your time at University. We'll provide you with a modern kitchen fully equipped with everything you will need for student life. Washing machines and dryers are located in our launderette to make sure you look at your best at all times. If that’s not enough, our on-site management office is open all week long so there is always a friendly face you can call in to speak to with your day to day queries about life in your new home, or if you just fancy a chat.

With large desk areas, bookshelves, a pin-board, plenty of electrical sockets for all your electrical appliances and broadband internet connections available in every room, your London student accommodation is designed to assist your studies. But all work and no play makes Jack (or Jill) a dull boy, and once your studies are complete for the day, simply relax in our games lounge or take a short walk into the surrounding areas of Shoreditch and Brick Lane to enjoy the very best London has to offer.
