These are officially the most Instagrammable halls in the UK

Who can even afford these palaces?


You might be used to mould, midnight fire alarms and silverfish infestations, but it turns out not everyone lives that classic halls life. How the other half live is so ridiculously different that this article might genuinely make you shed a tear.

These super bougie halls boast their own roof terraces, private cinemas and one even has a grand piano. "What kind of uni student needs a grand piano in their halls?", you may ask. We don't know. But we still want to see pics of it, obvs.

So, if you felt like your halls were a prison block before, get ready to feel a whole lot worse. Here are the most Instagrammable halls in the UK, courtesy of mystudenthalls:

The Stay Club, Colindale, London

£221 – £275 per week

Topping the list, The Stay Club in Colindale features 19 floors of fancy modern bedrooms with beaut views of London.

On site there is an in-house nightclub, a roof terrace, a cinema room and a lounge area that has walls lined with vinyl records.

If that wasn't enough, it also features a private games room that includes ping pong and table football.

And if you're feeling extra swanky, you can have your very own premium suite from £275 per week, which comes to a healthy £1100 a month!

This place is so bougie that the 24 hour staff will even take your online food deliveries whilst you're away and store them in the cold storage space for you.

iQ Shoreditch, London

£302 – £576 per week

These glamorous halls in central London offer studios and penthouses, and all the extra frills too, like a gym and a courtyard. It's probably much nicer smoking out there than in your room with a sock over the fire alarm, a la classic halls vibe.

New for Autumn 2019, the site will have its very own sky lounge fit with a games area, kitchen, designer seating and study facilities with mind blowing views of London. Much better than the standard halls flat views, which is usually someone staring at you from the opposite flat.
