Peel St is really close to my campus, 5 minutes and I’m there. My room is quite spacious, fully-furnished and comes with all the basic equipment I need. It’s really nice. I’m living in a 4-bedroom apartment. It’s a great way to meet people from other parts of the world. The rooftop terrace is amazing and it’s a really good place to study.


I really enjoy the resident life events. I met one of my good friends during a Spanish cooking session. It’s nice to get some hands-on experience during these activities. The staff are also really helpful and great to be around.
