I think GradPad is exceptionally good. I do enjoy life here. There are few things that I think particular good for future UCL students who choose here. First, it takes only 30 mins to UCL by Hammersmith line without changing line. Second, living condition is great here and far better than other UCL halls. Surrounding area is secure and there are several shops nearby.” Shi Zhou

"Best place to start your life in Central London. Everything is close, from tube and bus station to shops, pubs, and banks. Last but not least, fairly priced studios equipped with new facilities." Edward Johns

"I like the fact there are quiet study areas when you need them, but at the same time if you want some fun, there's space for that as well" Irene 

"The transport links here are phenomenal, you have a bus stop right outside your door, and a tube station a few hundred meters down the road!" Rebecca 

“The reception team is great! they are welcoming, helpful and they have a very positive approach. Thank you for this!” Wen Chan

 “Gradpad is like my second home!” Kate Bennett



Imperial West

The new Research and Translation Hub forms the centrepiece of Imperial West and will deliver world-class education, research and translation activities in two buildings. This next phase is being developed in partnership between Imperial College and Voreda, having already successfully delivered GradPad Wood Lane Studios. Construction activity for the 50,000 sq m project will commence in autumn 2014.

Imperial and Voreda have appointed Laing O’Rourke as construction delivery partner and taken necessary measures to minimise the potential impact on residents, including the majority of the buildings being prefabricated off-site in a factory controlled environment (view construction leaflet)

Laing O’Rourke will be producing project newsletters on a monthly basis to summarise the key construction activities over the forthcoming period. These newsletters are to be displayed in the Wood Lane Studios reception.
