""I chose to live in Studio 100 due to the close proximity to my department which is literally three minutes away. I have chosen to live in the Studio 100 over the full length of course as the apartments are of a very high quality, where the pictures do not lie. Being an international student and having a very intense course, I do not want to have any additional stress. With the MBA management, who are one of the best letting agents I have come across, they have enabled my stay to be extremely peaceful. Whether it means something major like replacing a shower that had broken to just changing a light bulb it is all done quickly. I would recommend Studio 100 any day!""
