Living with us

At our AXO student accommodation in Islington, we offer a variety of room options, each with unique specifications that can be seen below. These can be split into two categories; shared, and studio. The shared options are rooms available in cluster flats, where you enjoy the best of both worlds: the privacy of your own en-suite bedroom with a desk, alongside a communal kitchen and living area shared with other students. If you prefer a little more privacy, then the studio options will allow you to cook, study, and sleep all in your own space, which comes with its own en-suite bathroom.

Unique to our student housing in Islington is the option for you to add an additional person to your room for an extra £50 per week – perfect for when you have friends or family staying over in spring break! It’s worth noting that this option is only available for our studio flats. And while we’re on the subject of money, when staying with us, your bills are also included in the rent, so there’s no need to worry about finding utility providers, or budgeting for electricity, water and wifi.

At our student accommodation in north London, we make your student experience our priority, and that’s why we love hosting regular social events. These themed nights take place monthly and are a great way to socialise with other students living in the same building.

Things to do nearby

Less than 20 minutes away from our student housing in Islington are Camden Town and Islington’s Upper Street. There are many reasons why these areas are so popular with students, from the live music and bars to the restaurants and comedy clubs. This isn’t a travel guide so we won’t list every venue but rest assured that when you choose us for your student accommodation in Islington, you won’t be short of local activities and cool places to hang out.

Our location is just a stone’s throw from The Emirates, the home ground of Arsenal football club. So whether you’re an Arsenal fan or support another team, you’ll be glad to know our student accommodation in north London is less than a 20-minute walk away from watching one of the top clubs in the premier league play virtually every week. 

If football isn’t your thing, Finsbury Park, which is one of the many green spaces within London’s city limits, is also in the vicinity. As well as being a park, this area is home to a popular music venue, with regular one-day festival-type events taking place.

Travelling in Islington

The buses in Islington run all day, so it’s pretty easy to get anywhere that’s just out of walking distance. Speaking of the tube, not all student flats in Islington can match our proximity to two stations (Holloway Road and Archway), which run on the Northern and Piccadilly lines.

So how does our student housing in North London sit in relation to the rest of the city? With the bus and rail options nearby you can reach most London university campuses with ease and a reasonable commute time. Here’s a handy guide to how far away we are from popular London Universities:

  • London Metropolitan University – 10-15 minute walk
  • SOAS University of London – 25-30 minutes public transport
  • Birkbeck, University of London – 25-30 minutes public transport
  • University College London (UCL) – 25-35 minutes public transport
  • King’s College London – 30-35 minutes public transport
  • University of Westminster – 30-40 minutes public transport
  • Imperial College London – 40-45 minutes public transport

If you’re looking to travel outside of London, you can reach any of the central London train stations within an hour. And if you fancy a trip abroad, or need to get to your home country for the holidays, by using the bus and underground you can get to London Heathrow Airport in just over an hour (which is about as long as it would take to drive, but without the stress)!
