Holbrook is a brand new development, opening in 2019, that is owned by Downing Students. Imperial students will occupy 45 bespoke '3DIO' apartments: three bedrooms sharing two bathrooms and a communal kitchen area. It also features a variety of modern shared facilities, including two rooftop terraces, games rooms, a cinema room and communal study spaces. Holbrook also places you at the heart of the student community in the area, being two minutes walk from Woodward Buildings and The Costume Store as well as it's location right outside North Acton Tube station.
As the local area is rapidly developing with a number of new buildings currently being constructed (including Imperial's new Kemp Porter Buildings), there may be times when nearby construction sites can be slightly noisy.
