“Great environment in which to socialise and more importantly to study. Very nice rooms and noticeably larger than similar ones for similar prices. Great location with good bus and train links to University.”  Rob Anderson

“I am very satisfied with all aspects of living at Griffon Studios. The gym is state of the art, the rooms are visually refreshing and have all the functionalities a student might need. The surrounding environment is quiet, enabling the peace and quiet for studying and concentration. The social areas serve their purpose without disrupting this fact and are perfectly positioned to make the gatherings as easy as possible. I think it’s excellent value for money and would recommend it to future postgraduate students.” Srdan Mijic

“I think Griffon Studios overall is a good place to live. It’s very secure, rooms are nice and the staff are really friendly.” Thomas Waweru

"I like the fact that at GradPad you have your own kitchen and your own bathroom, so it's not like student housing I've had in the past. It's a lot more mature independent living." Rebecca 

"I have so much fun here, everything is convenient, everything is comfortable, go for it!" Maria

“Amazing accommodation for postgraduate students. Griffon Studios is very sociable and I have made so many good friends here. The common room always has someone to talk to, especially in the evenings. It is so close to loads of pubs, clubs, shops and just one minute away from the train and the NHS. The staff are very friendly and is always willing to lend a helping hand. I absolutely love this place!”  Kelvio De Silveria

The vicinity is nice with all the amenities that I need and I appreciate that the transport links are in close proximity to the residence (bus and train), particularly the night bus!” Nathalie Dupuy
