University of the Arts London wanted to provide their students with high quality accommodation at an attainable rent within close proximity to their campus in Lime Grove. The Costume Store is located just two minutes walk from North Acton tube station in Zone 2 on the Central Line.

Acton mainline station will form part of the Crossrail project due for delivery in 2018 which will offer direct access to London Paddington in 6 minutes, Farringdon in 12 minutes and Liverpool Street in 14 minutes.

In addition to the array of local amenities within walking distance, Westfield shopping centre is located just 3 stops away on the central line.

The area is currently undergoing significant regeneration with a further 800 student beds, 150 private residential apartments, a station plaza and a number of commercial units due for delivery over the next 3 years confirming its status as a dynamic new student hub in West London.
