Central Saint Martins

One of the six colleges that make up the University of The Arts, Central Saint Martins can be found just next to King's Cross in North London, making it easy to reach from all three of our London accommodation buildings. In fact, it's easy to see why many Central Saint Martins students decide to live with us at iQ Shoreditch, iQ Hoxton or iQ Bloomsbury - you can reach the college from all three sites in about twenty minutes.
