What is co-living?

Co-living is living in a more connected way with the people around you, where individuals are united by the pursuit of a way of living that is focused on creating and maintaining a genuine community. Whilst residents rent their own private apartments, they share spaces and events, coming together to form their own environment in which they can live and play, fostering values like openness, collaboration and social networking. This is co-living; being part of a connected network of people everyday, where your home and community become one.

Why is Co-Living better?

To some, co-living may appear similar to other housing situations, but it has its unique nuances. Whilst serviced living provides similar conveniences – with cleaning, linen changes and 24/7 support – residents often lack the sense of community and connection that is integral to a co-living experience. And whilst a standard flat share combines private and shared spaces to create a collaborative environment, this is often on a much smaller scale than that of co-living.

Co-Living options for me

With co-living, there’s always the opportunity to socialize at events and in the communal areas, but members can retreat to the privacy of their own space whenever they like.

Options with co-living range from private bedrooms with shared bathrooms and kitchenettes, to spacious private apartments. No matter which room you choose, you get to experience the privacy of living alone combined with the sense of community that is unique to co-living. Our private rooms come with everything you need – so you can just turn up and start to enjoy your co-living life without any of the hassle.

  • All inclusive bills
  • Flexible contracts
  • Community events
  • Superfast broadband

Sharing is caring

Well-designed communal spaces to work, play and relax. Co-living buildings are filled with beautiful interiors that are designed to bring individuals together. Co-living provides the opportunity to experience something new everyday, because we know life doesn’t stop when you get home - whether it’s an exercise class, live music night or a reading club, there is always a way to have fun and connect with other residents just outside your bedroom door.

Learn. Develop. Grow.

Learn new skills
Develop your passion

Be part of something bigger. From workshops and courses to live music and guest speakers, there’s a way to engage with the community everyday of the week. Create a new club, host a dinner party or plan an event; whatever you want to bring to the table, bring it to the community. Escape the big city loneliness and form lifelong friendships with diverse individuals as you share meals, ideas, lessons and dreams.

What is co-living?

Co-living is a new take on an old theme; a way of living with community and collective experiences at its core. Diverse individuals of different ages, cultures, genders and languages, come together to form their own environment in which they live and play. This is co-living; being part of a connected network of people everyday, where your home and community become one.

At The Collective, members rent their own private studio apartments, but also have access to onsite amenities, shared spaces, and regular community events to bring people together.

We're creating collaborative and fun environments that expose our members to new people, new ideas and new experiences.

Who is co-living for?

If you're a native Londoner, it's your new scene. If you're new to London, it's your home away from home. If you're an entrepreneur, it's your future network. Co-living is for anyone who is ready to embrace a more connected way of living; who wants to be part of something through the place they call home. After all, the beauty of the co-living experience is the way that community and connectedness are integrated into everyday living.

What is included in the price?

An all-in-one monthly bill covers everything: rent, utilities, council tax, wifi, cleaning (fortnightly room cleans and linen changes), and access to all communal spaces and community events. No hidden costs – no unexpectedly high bills at the end of the month!

We also have an onsite team during the day (8am-8pm) to help you out with any issues. After hours, we have dedicated security guards onsite.

What is the length of tenancy?

We offer flexible tenancy lengths to suit individual requirements. You can stay with us for 4, 6, 9 and 12 months, although please note that the price of the room may vary.

Is my room cleaned and my linen changed?

Yes! We have an entire team in the building dedicated to exactly that. Room cleans and linen changes are once every two weeks. All the common spaces are cleaned everyday. An exact schedule will be provided.

What is provided in my room?

We provide bedding and linen as well as all kitchen utensils, cutlery and plates, so all you need to do is turn up with a bag and you’re all set!

Co-living is designed to be the perfect platform for life in the city, focusing on creating ground-breaking spaces and the greatest possible experiences within them.
