The best place to live for London’s top universities? Try Wembley

 
 

For most students, starting university is an adventure. But it can be daunting too, grappling with questions such as where to live, moving to a new place and making new friends.

When it comes to the first question, however, students need not worry if they follow some simple guidelines when selecting their new home, says Nicholas Spencer, Associate Partner at Knight Frank.

 

“The key things to look at are transport connections, the amenities of the surrounding area, and that the home is within a secure neighbourhood community.”

Wembley, in northwest London, combines all these aspects. It is one of the only Zone 4 locations where you can get into Zone 1 in just 12 minutes – with fast links to central London via the Jubilee, Bakerloo and Metropolitan lines as well as the London Overground and national rail services.

Most of London’s top universities are accessible in less than an hour – and some, such as UCL, in less than half an hour. International students have the added benefit than Heathrow can be reached in less than an hour via public transport or 35 minutes by car.

Young people living here benefit from a rich cultural and entertainment scene – from the world-renowned Wembley Stadium with its array of international music and sporting events to the buzzing street food hub that is BOXPARK.

The amenity offering at Wembley is continuing to blossom, thanks to ongoing investment. Since 2002, public infrastructure improvements and more than £2.5 billion of private investment have transformed Wembley – creating a safe and vibrant community where students can thrive.

Regal London’s new development, Fulton & Fifth, offers a rare opportunity for parents to buy property in Wembley during their children’s studies.

The community of 800 homes, as well as new independent cafés, shops, and workspaces, is due to complete in Q1 2025. It will give students the chance to live in one of London’s most exciting areas while giving parents exposure to a destination that has enjoyed some of the fastest house price growth in the capital. House prices in Brent have risen by 23% since March 2020, according to Knight Frank – faster than any other London borough.

Aside from easy access to campus, health and wellness are also vital to the 21st century student. That’s why Fulton & Fifth has been designed to support the highest levels of wellbeing – with a golf simulator, yoga studio, swimming pool, cinema room and gym.

Residents are surrounded by green space – including our new waterside park, wildflower meadow and residents’ gardens. Every single apartment comes with a terrace, meaning each resident has their own private outdoor space.

Of course, some families will be questioning whether to buy or rent. Recent research by StuRents, the student property portal, shows that, while the number of university goers living in London has continued to climb, the supply of student rentals has not been able to keep pace. This has led to a shortfall of circa 59,500 student beds across the UK capital and pushed rental costs upwards.

“The shortfall of high-quality rental accommodation for students in London means for many parents it currently makes sense to buy a property for children studying in the UK,” says Jacob Sullivan, Sales & Marketing Director at Regal London.

 

“The potential for investment growth in Wembley – combined with the strong rentability of properties here – has caused it to become a particular hotspot for these parent buyers. Fulton & Fifth is a key example of this trend.”
