Student reviews of Scape East

"A great place to live and experience the first year at university"

      - Anniken Brekke, Norway, Queen Mary

"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
