Berkeley First, Griffon Studios, Apartments, Exterior

The Development

Griffon Studios comprises 566 studio apartments split across three buildings, linked by a central reception area, outside courtyard and communal facilities.

It is one of the only student accommodation developments to have achieved Secured By Design recognition with its four-point entry system and 24-hour CCTV and concierge service, while green roofs and exceptional levels of insulation, ensure it is highly energy efficient.

Students also benefit from high speed WiFi internet connections throughout the building, with 30Mb broadband as standard and an upgrade option available.

Griffon Studios offers a comprehensive range of modern communal facilities, with a large residents' lounge with flexible seating and a film-quality plasma screen and sound system, together with electronic blackout blinds. There is also a large courtyard, a fully equipped gym and even a card-operated laundry room that links washers and dryers to students' personal computers so that they are alerted when their washing has finished.

The scheme received various awards along with a BREEAM very Good rating for sustainability.

Studios start at £200pw and is fully let for the 2012/13 academic year. For more information and to book please contact Imperial College London.
