It’s why we’ve been awarded an International Accommodation Quality Mark and have been voted Best Value for Money 2016 in the National Student Housing Survey, the question should really be, why should I not stay at King Square Studios?
Q. Do I have to be a student to live at King Square Studios?

It is the resident’s own responsibility to clean their rooms and they share responsibility for the communal area of the flat.

The block stairways are regularly cleaned by the King Square Studios staff.
Q. What about security?
24-hour security with CCTV, electronic access control and a member of staff on site are available.
Q. Do I need to move out during the holidays?
Your contract is for a fixed length of time – so your room is yours throughout that period. That means that you don’t have the hassle of moving your belongings out during the Christmas or Easter vacations, and you can choose to stay in your property over these holidays if you want. It’s usually possible to book additional accommodation over the summer period if you want to stay then too. But we advise booking early to ensure rooms are available.

It is not usually possible to change rooms after you have arrived. All rooms are allocated on a 42 or 50-week contract and unless another resident also requests a room swap we would be unable to change your room.
Q. Do you have staff at your properties?
Every student home has a team of trained staff on site to respond to meet your needs. Their job is to make your experience as enjoyable as possible. On-site management offices are open Monday to Friday and will answer any questions, respond to any issues, offer advice and ensure a friendly face is there to greet you every day.
