Freddy says:

'Carr-Saunders has an amazing sense of community and gives you unbelievable value for money within a central London location. From the start, so many people were so welcoming that the social aspect which I had been worried about wasn’t an issue at all. There are two large supermarkets within a five minute walk from the hall. For any other shopping, Oxford Street is a ten minute walk away. Just down Maple Street is our 'local pub' which shows live sports and offers some good student deals. For a student in London, this is a perfect area to live in.'
