St Giles Studios is a contemporary student accommodation in the heart of Durham. Located in the historic area of Gilesgate, the accommodation provides close proximity to shops, Durham City Center and the Durham University colleges, 9 minutes’ walk to St Hild & St Bede and 25 minutes’ walk to Stockton Road.
The nearest bus stop to the property is Sunderland Road, only a minute’s walk away. The train station is also just 5 minutes’ drive away from here, so planning weekend getaways to the countryside won’t be a problem.
The accommodation provides premiere range of studios to live in. Each studio is stylishly decorated with a double bed, excellent storage, a kitchen and an en-suite bathroom. They also have a private study space. The social space includes a Club Room and Workspace, where you can either have a fun time with your friends or work/study with them. The Club room has sofas, armchairs, and a big screen where you can stream your favourite TV shows. The area leads to the Workspace that has sharing tables, informal sofas and chairs for group discussion. They also have a private meeting room where you can set up group meetings. The Workspace leads up to the terrace that has an open seating area with tables and chairs, for the warm Durham days.
Roll out happy from your double bed every day after a good night’s sleep in your studio. Make the bed and grab yourself a cup of coffee from the kitchen. Take a long shower in your ensuite bathroom and get ready for a productive day. You do not have to worry about missing the bus as the bus stop is literally a minutes’ walk away from the studio. For days when you are stressed out, visit the Colorful Chameleon, a pottery studio in Durham where you can play with colours and be creative. It is a cool experience and a great place to make friends. For fancy drinks, you must try The Cellar Door, The Brew Bar Lounge, Whisky River and The Boat Club. On weekends, visit the Gala theatre. They generally have up and running ballets, dance shows and brand new plays.
