Central accommodation upper school

Recommended Posts

Hi. My ds has got into central and is looking for accommodation. Looked at liberty plaza and liberty house and he would like to share a room with someone in liberty house. Nice place and convenient. 

Is anyone looking and also alternatively does anyone want a lodger! He's clean and polite!

Advice please. Thank you

Here's an older thread that may still contain information that is of use:

 

 

I've added tags Central and Accommodation to the top of the thread and it may be useful to have a search on those.  There are also some posts about accommodation on the Questions about Upper Schools thread but you will have to look through it to find them.

I have posted on this forum previously but leave it here too. I am happy to be host family for dance student as my DD is currently studying overseas and i have free single room in Central London (SE1) whether on short summer/ easter school basis or long term. Safe, clean, pet free (just fish tank), can provide meals (i cook for me every day), very central and bus ride to Central, Royal, short tube ride to ENB etc. 
Can pm more details.

FlexyNexy's offer should be even more appealing to Central students once the school moves to its new premises in SE1!

Flexynexy you should start your own thread. I'm sure your room will be snapped up!

My dd  (16 in August) will be starting at Central in September too and we are looking at accomodation options - we live overseas so this is a bit daunting 🙂  Is anyone considering IQ Paris Gardens next to new school and would consider sharing?

 

Regarding Liberty House - is this the one on Sebastian Street - anyone booking this?

 

I would really like her to live somewhere where other Central students will be lodging so that she will know people at the boarding house too and they can commute together.  Any tips and help would be greatly appreciated 🙂

Liberty house at St John street. We didn't look at Sebastian st. DS hated liberty plaza and IQ I think will be too expensive. Rooms were larger at LHSt John. Very quiet road too even though it was peak time when we visited.

Staff lovely. I think there are some other students going to LHSt John.  Please can parents let me know what they decide?

We went yesterday to take a look around the student accommodation My dd and her friend loved Liberty plaza, staff very welcoming, facilities excellent it’s a little bit further out but in a great location and we all decided Liberty house St. John street was very compact and not right for them.

 

IQ Paris Gardens currently you have to be 18 but I spoke to them this morning and this is being looked into as central is moving next door they should have an update by the end of the week, also it’s a bit more expensive.

IQ is wonderfully situated but quite expensive. DS wants to have a short commute, preferably on shanks pony to save money so unless IQ do something amazing we will be booking liberty house st John street. Thank you very much for your input. I guess a lot of them will be spending time in each others places anyway!!

Hi All. Congratulations to all your DC. Exciting times ahead!  I too have a DD starting in Sept and she would love to live with others for company (me for safety/commutes). How soon do we have to book? So much information to take in!

Congratulations to all who have gained places at Central for the next part of your dance journey. My daughter is a current Year 1 student there and loving every minute. I would advise you book accommodation asap as rooms go fast. We rebooked for 2019/20 last November! Most people seem to live at Plaza, St John St or Herbal Hill Studios so there's always someone to travel with. We have not been given a definite date for the move to Paris Gardens though which may affect your decisions. Good luck everyone. It's a stressful time but this forum is great for putting minds at rest!

Hi Southernbelle, we have been very lucky as one of dd's close friend also got Central so we've booked a twin studio at Plaza, its all very daunting with all the finance side to sort out but exciting times ahead :)
