Mini screens feature cult films, music that will take you down the nostalgia lane and bring your right back into a time now – all in one night.

This eclectic part of the city has eye-catching street art along with independent cafes and bars. There is this elusive restaurant Almost Famous that you must visit, that is if you find it of course as measures have been taken to keep it well hidden!

For those nights that you are planning to stay in and have the case of the lazies, well simply grab yourself a burger meal from Burger King across the road. Or if you and your friends are looking for something more upscale then dine out at Russo Restaurant and enjoy some good Italian cuisine. It is made in a historic bank, making the experience so much more intriguing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Is the site secured?

The site covered by CCTV and has onsite security staff, with staff present 24 hours a day. There is also a digital entry system at the building. 

Q. Can I book if I'm under 18?

We require that all tenants living at one of our buildings in England and Wales are over the age of 18 at the time of moving in. You may book if you are 17, but only if you will have turned 18 before you move in. Exceptions to this rule are available in selected cases through prior arrangement with a university or institution. 

Q. Can I bring a TV?

If you want to bring a TV, check that your room has a TV point and don’t bring one larger than 21”. You can’t mount your TV on the wall, so make sure it’s free-standing. While all TVs provided by iQ in communal areas accessed by all residents are covered by a TV Licence, you will need to buy your own licence if you bring your own TV or if there is one already in your room or shared kitchen & living area. 

Q. Can I bring pets?


Q. Can I choose where my room is in the building?

Yes, you can specify where you would like your room to be – from those which are still available – at the time you book.

Q. Can I have overnight guests?

Yes. It's your home so you can have guests staying over occasionally, but we would ask you to respect your fellow residents and let your site team know. You are responsible for the behaviour of any guests you bring to your iQ site.

Q. Can I move out early?

You can move out whenever you are ready but the contract you have is a Fixed Term Tenancy Agreement and you will still need to pay the full rent until the end of the agreement. In exceptional circumstances, the Property Manager may decide to grant an early release from the tenancy.

It may be possible to swap or change your room once you have moved in, subject to availability. A room change fee will apply.
