"Carr-Saunders has an amazing sense of community and gives you unbelievable value for money within a central London location that caters to every student’s needs. 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 The Court which is nominally the local pub and shows live sports and offers some good student deals. For a student in London, it is a perfect area to live in."
