Each Key Living apartment has four to six private en-suite mini-studios, with a desk, and a large shared kitchen and dining area, well designed and equipped with modern appliances. There’s a laundrette on site too.
The rooms are spread across five buildings - Curie, Hodgson, Kodak, Lister and Pasteur Court's and there is a good amount of storage space for each resident.
Each block has a secure entry system and intercom, giving you reassurance you’re safe in your home.
You do have to look after your own room, but a professional cleaner will come in once a week to look after all shared spaces and there’s also a free handyperson service if you need any work carried out. The team is available out of hours if needed. Residents can report a repair to the 24-hour contact centre, on the website or in person at the on-site management office, which has a dedicated property manager.
Residents benefit from superfast internet, a communal garden, regular grounds maintenance, secure bike storage, a site office and full-time security.
Saving money and short tenancies

A sense of community
Employees who are settled in their home life, can settle more easily into their work-life and push themselves to succeed.Shannice James-McFee, Marketing and Lettings Manager at Network Homes
Employees who are settled in their home life, can settle more easily into their work-life and push themselves to succeed.
For people moving to London for the first time getting a job in a new city is a great first step on the career ladder but moving there on your own can be a daunting experience.
But sharing with others doing similar work can bring benefits of supporting one another. It enables residents to find like-minded people to spend their time with.
Employers can also rent rooms from Network Homes for their employees and this sharing approach can help foster team spirit among staff.
