We think we’re pretty great, but here’s what some of our students have to say about living with us

After a smooth check in I found my room to be modern and much bigger than expected. The staff are helpful and friendly and they organise loads of great events.

Zain, Student

Staying at The Lantern was the best decision I've ever made! This is my third year living in halls and it is the best customer service I have experienced.

Kate, Student

The friendly staff at The Lantern do everything possible to make your stay hassle-free. They constantly go above and beyond. The building is brand new and comes with great amenities.
