You know when you get a new phone, there is a clear plastic bit on the screen that is very satisfying to take off? Well imagine doing that not for something you can hold in your hand, but for something you can actually live in!
The Lace Market Studios is a brand new and super exclusive student accommodation in Nottingham’s creative quarter. There are many ‘best-bits’, but my personal favourite is the fact that it’s going to be a brand new building, purpose built just for you! And this September, you get to take off the wrapper and be the very first to live in luxury.
Anyway, here are some more of our best bits:
1. Location, Location, Location
The Lace Market. That’s all I need to say really… why would you choose to live anywhere else in Nottingham? I work here – and when I finish work, I play here – and when I’m not working, I shop here! (I wish I lived here too). It’s only 16 minutes to NTU on foot and just 17 minutes to UON by tram; which, according to a study we recently read (on Citylab.com), is the ideal amount of time to spend commuting each way, every day, for a fulfilling and happy life of well being.
2. Balconies and Light
The worst thing you can do to a small box room, is give it a small box window – we’ve seen it happen! That’s why, our huge studios are being built with floor-to-ceiling windows (and black out curtains). So, let there be light! Oh, and if that’s not enough, why not choose one of our balcony studios? Imagine that, your very own private balcony – it’s just like being on holiday.
3. Social Space
Wake up in a comfy double bed, watch the sunrise from your balcony, and wander downstairs to see my smiling face. Then, enjoy a coffee, and even a croissant in our lounge, before heading off to Uni for a hard days study.
At the end of the day, skip home, walk through the door, “did you have a good day?” …but before you head up to your sumptuous studio, drop your bag and put your feet up. De-stress and unwind in our double height social lounge – just for you. Shout ‘Hi’, tune into a music channel and melt into our sofas. Or, if you fancy a game of pool I’ll even challenge you – although I always lose.
4. Designed for You
Our studios feature a bathroom with an XL shower, a bigger desk and a kitchen – plus a dedicated eating space, so they’ll be no more dinner from your desk. With a wardrobe, draws, under bed store and a cleaning cupboard, there’s loads of extra deep storage. There’s added plugs too for all of your phones, laptops, tablets, lamps, drones, hover boards and hydron colliders; which means no more fighting for plugs.
5. Bigger than Average
We’ve had our tape measure out and have been all around town and…drum roll, we ARE bigger than average – after all, who wants average? From 18m² to 32m² – you could fit a few elephants in our studios (no pets please). More space = More comfort!
Not bad hey?
But let’s remember the most important thing; you! Coming to university is huge; living and learning in a new place, a new space and well, a new everything! It’s a very exciting time and what better way to enjoy it and relax than to be sitting in the library, knowing you’re coming home to the ultimate comfort. A good night’s sleep and a home away from home can really help you settle in and focus on why you’re here – to study.
And that’s why we’re here, to give you a bigger, brighter, and comfier space to live and learn in – all from the best part of the city; close enough to everything and far away enough to get some peace.
I wish I was a student again!
