Scape East at a glance

Scape East opened in the summer of 2012 situated in Mile End, London, directly opposite from Queen Mary University. Scape is also conveniently located for many other London universities with UAL, LSE and AASchool within 20 minutes of Scape by London Underground.

Spiral staircases and a double-height entrance at Scape East create a spacious and welcoming entrance. Copper and bronze is a recurring theme – from the illuminated canopy on top of the building to the cladding surrounds. Our green roofs attract butterflies and bees and the ground water provides heat for the 25,000 square feet of educational space and the communal areas.

Our team of Scape Ambassadors organise events and can answer questions about the local area and life at Scape through our online forum. Some of the ambassadors even write for our blog, where topics range from exams revision tips to the best local markets.

Student Reviews of Scape East

“A great place to live and experience the first year at university”
Anniken Brekke, Norway, Queen Mary
“I couldn't believe that my studio was 100 times better than of my friends who paid 2 times more in other student accommodations! I have everything here, including a support. Scape made my student experience awesome! Thanks!” 
Marija Jesipova, Lithuania, Regents College
“...One of the best things about Scape is its location. I must admit I had my doubts when I decided I would stay in Mile End, but it is a wonderful area, perfectly safe and quiet and full of students thanks to Queen Mary being right across the road. Many restaurants and convenience stores within minutes make your life that much easier, and thanks to the excellent connections of the Tube you can be anywhere in no time...”
Michail Kitromilidis, Greece, Kings College
“Scape offers smartly designed rooms in London's hip and culturally diverse East End...and it's a 5 minute walk from one of London's most well connected Tube stations!”
Erin Johnson, USA, Imperial College London

Quality design and great value

The concept of modern student accommodation came from the Scape partners who enlisted leading interior designer Ab Rogers and design studio Praline bring their vision to life. The result has yielded a superior alternative to traditional student housing; where striking design goes hand in hand with competitive prices and excellent London locations.

The studios at Scape East offer a haven for study and relaxation. Inspiration comes from the efficiency of railcars, submarines and caravans and can be seen in the sleek, integrated storage present in every room. This extends into the en suite, where mirrors hide shelving and create a feeling of spaciousness. There are no ugly bare light bulbs thanks to recessed lighting, and this lends the studios a cosiness and warmth. Splashes of colour accent the furniture, heat panels and cleverly mounted cushion above the bed that provides a bonus sofa space. These bold shades vary with each floor, running throughout the corridors and onto the post boxes in the lobby.
