Where Will Our Ba/MArt Students Live?

Felda House is located in Wembley, North London.
Thinking of applying for our new BA/MArt in the Art of 3D Animation, but not sure where you might live?

Below are three suggestions for undergraduate student accommodation within striking distance of Escape Studios in Shepherds Bush. All of these options have been vetted and approved by Pearson College.

Prices vary, and start at around £140 per week. Students can choose from three locations: Wembley, Westbourne Park and White City. 

Prodigy Living
Prodigy Living - cycling distance from Shepherd's Bush
Prodigy Living is well located, situated on the Grand Union Canal between Westbourne Park, Kensal Green, and Queen's Park in Travel Zone 2.

It is an easy commute by rail to Escape Studios - Kensal Rise to Shepherds Bush via London Overground - or take the Hammersmith and City line from Westbourne Park Tube to Goldhawk Rd.

But our top tip is to buy a cheap bicycle and cycle in through the back streets - it won't take more than 10-15 minutes.

The full address is 1 Alderson Street, London W10 5JY.  Prices start from £225 per week. More information can be found at their official site.

Felda House
Felda House is a considerably cheaper option, and is located in Wembley, a few miles north of Shepherd's Bush.  Prices start from £140 per week.

Felda House is in travel zone 4 and is about a thirty five minute commute to Escape Studios.  The address is 575 North End Road, Wembley HA9 0UU.  To get to us from Felda House, take the Jubillee Line from Wembley Park Tube to Baker Street, and then the Hammersmith and City or Circle lines to Goldhawk Road Tube.

Or, better yet, get yourself a cheap bicycle and cycle to Wembley Central, which is on a direct Overground line to Shepherd's Bush station - just two stops!  If you're feeling fit, you could also cycle all the way to Shepherd's Bush, but it's about six miles and involves some busy roads.

More information can be found via the Felda House official website.

Wood Lane Studios  (MA Students only)
Wood Lane Studios is easily the best located student accommodation, but is for MA students only.

Wood Lane Studios are just around the corner in White City, a short walk to Escape Studios. Prices start from £225 per week. More information can be found via their website.

Note that prices of all these options do vary and are subject to availability.  To see the official Pearson College site, and learn more about the options for undergraduate accommodation, follow this link.

Don't forget that, while living in London is undeniably expensive, there are many advantages to living and studying in the capital.  First of all, you have direct access to all the many animation and VFX events that take place throughout the year.  Soho - London's media hub - is a short 15 minute Tube journey from Shepherd's Bush.  Local access to internships, jobs, contacts and industry links will help to give our students a head start in this rapidly growing but highly competitive industry.
