What students are saying…

I’ve been a resident at The Hive for three years, and the fact that I am rebooking for a fourth year is a testament to the great experience I have had.

I currently live in The Hive and it’s a wonderful accommodation, you can live in a private room which look like a small apartment, it’s very cosy and modern I totally love it…
