January 2018 - The Stay Club
2017 Highlights

2017 Highlights

The past year has been a fantastic roller coaster for The Stay Club family, a year full of amazing projects, memorable events and the beginning of new exciting collaborations. Let’s take a look at some of the most memorable moments of the year.

We kicked off 2017 with the opening of our Colindale building, a magic brand new property that features multiple one-of-a-kind facilities such as our 100-seater private cinema with surround sound system and a restaurant with a terrace that sits up to 200 people, ideal for that morning caramel latte with a view of London’s skyline. Located just 20 minutes away from Central London and within walking distance from Middlesex University, our Colindale residence quickly became home to many unforgettable parties, networking events and cultural gatherings.


Another great addition in 2017 was the introduction of SkyTV and BT Sport across all Stay Club properties, allowing our lovely residents to enjoy the latest sports events including Champions League and Europa League matches in the comfort of our super cosy lobbies.


2017 has also been a year of new exciting partnerships and collaborations. We are committed to constantly improving the everyday life of our students and are excited to introduce numerous partnerships with local businesses that now offer discounts to The Stay Club residents including restaurants & coffee shops, gyms & wellness centres, hairdresser salons & barber shops and many more amazing businesses! Pop in to reception to learn more about offers available in your area.


Over the past year, our events team had the pleasure of hosting celebrations for many exciting occasions including St Patrick’s Day, Easter, 4th of July, Wimbledon, Halloween, Christmas and many more, wrapping it all up with our festive New Year’s Eve bash! We look forward to many more regular and special events to come this year with Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year just around the corner.


If 2017 was awesome, 2018 is about to be sensational! We have a lot of exciting plans for this year, so #StayTuned and watch this space!
