I chose to live at The Collective Old Oak because of the various and plentiful facilities that they provide here. When you live here, you are not only renting your room, your rent also includes the access to lots of facilities and services. I also really liked the idea of co-living, which allows me to meet new people every day. The common areas have a very elegant and relaxing interior design and I love to spend my spare time there.

In terms of building management, the staff are great. They are extremely helpful and fix all my problems within a very short amount of time. We have a receptionist that takes all of our parcels, so we never miss one!
The library is my favourite facility in The Collective Old Oak, this is because it is quite and allows me to work undisturbed. My room is quite small and my desk chair is uncomfortable, so I find it harder to work in there. I also really enjoy the activities they put on every day, it’s always something different and it’s a great opportunity to spend your spare time doing something worthwhile. I particularly like the movie nights, yoga lessons, meditation sessions and art activities. The development has such a rich and thriving community, I stop and speak to all the other residents when I see them, they are all so friendly.
Although my room is quite small (it does kind of remind me of a hotel room), it has plenty of storage space – I especially make use of the under the bed storage. Also, I like that we can stick things on the walls and really make our rooms feel like home. I even have plants in the bathroom!
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
The accommodation is easy to commute as it’s just 7-minute walk from the station, but it’s a bit quiet during the night-time. Also, there aren’t many grocery shops within a close proximity.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
