I moved to the Woodlane Studios Gradpad, since some of my classmates were living there. I enjoy living in Gradpad because the studio is very comfortable, the building facilities are nice and the location is very convenient. As it is next to a huge mall, I can quickly run to the shops if I need anything. It is also next to the Business School’s Scale Space at the White City Campus, which is a nice place to have your study sessions in.
