What are some of the benefits of staying in a co-living space?

New year, new home? We know house-hunting can be stressful at this time of year, especially when you’re trying to find a place that is clean, well maintained and not to mention affordable. Plus, moving to a city as big as London can be pretty stressful and lonely, when you’re trying to make new friends.

If you’re looking for a place to live in London, then why not consider co-living? Not only does co-living provide you with a ready-made community, but it also offers the convenience of fully furnished spaces, shared amenities, and often, organised social events – and at ARK, we tick all of the boxes and some! It really is a stress-free living option.

So, what are some of the benefits of staying in a co-living space, and how do you know it’s right for you? In the blog below, we’ll tell you everything you need to know, as well as why a co-living space like ARK is the perfect place to call home in 2024.

Let’s dive!

Why should you move into a co-living space like ARK?

No deposit needed

Sounds too good to be true, right? 

Well, don’t worry – you read that correctly. At ARK we don’t require our members to pay a hefty deposit before they move in. So you can say goodbye to pushy landlords and having to give away your hard earned savings, just to secure accommodation. We told you we weren't joking when we say you’d be picking a stress free living option, right?

Stylish studios

One of the benefits of co-living spaces is that they usually give you your own private studio or room that’s basically ready to move right into! 

At ARK, we’ve got fully furnished studios complete with all the home comforts – all that’s left for you to do is to add a few personal touches. Fully equipped with kitchenettes and beautifully designed ensuite bathrooms, your ARK studio gives you the perfect balance of comfort and convenience. It’s a win-win.

All bills included 

Keeping track of all the bills you need to pay can be super stressful – we get it.

That’s why, at ARK, we believe in creating hassle-free living. As a member, you just have one monthly rate that covers rent, bills and any maintenance costs – which we’re sure you can agree is an absolute game changer. 

This allows you to focus on the important things and to know exactly what money you have to plan your social life. Plus, you don’t have to worry about an unexpected bill because your shower just decided to start leaking…we’ve all been there!

A lively social calendar

Moving to a big city is always going to be daunting, but London really takes it up a notch with the sheer size of the place. Co-living spaces make it super easy for renters like you to meet new people and form lasting friendships. 

For example, at ARK, we have a whole host of weekly activities waiting for you. From pasta making classes and clay painting, to weekly quiz nights and member brunches, our social calendar has something for everyone. And the best part? You’ll get to meet your fellow ARK members whilst having fun! It doesn’t get much better than that, right?

Fully packed amenities

Co-living spaces also have plenty of social spaces and amenities for its members to make the most of when living there. At ARK, our communal spaces go beyond the conventional. Why not cook up a storm in our shared kitchen, and host your very own taco night with friends? Or better yet, take part in one of our food-themed weekly events; whether it’s learning to perfect a plate of spaghetti carbonara, or baking a cake that’d impress even the likes of Paul Hollywood (ala Bake Off).

Don’t wanna miss the England match? Or maybe you’re in the mood for a scary film? Grab your mates and the popcorn and kick back in our very own cinema room. Love going to the gym? Well, now it’s right on your doorstep because at ARK we have a fully equipped 24/7 gym onsite. But that’s not all, because we also run weekly yoga classes and PT sessions to help you on your fitness journey.

But the real pièce de résistance of Wembley ARK has got to be our rooftop terrace. Head up to the top floor and take in some breathtaking views of Wembley Park and London. Plus, when the nights are warm, you’ll find it’s the perfect spot to host a member event or party – cocktails anyone?

A dedicated community

Co-living goes beyond just sharing a place to sleep at night; it creates a vibrant, welcoming and supportive community where members can socialise, network, and connect in shared spaces and through aligned activities.

If you like the idea of having a supportive network of friends and a friendly community of people, ARK is the place for you. We’ve carefully created spaces designed for you to come together to socialise, network and connect with other community members. Creating meaningful connections, and gaining a whole host of new friends along the way, who you can lean on anytime you need it. 

We’ll help you make London feel more like home. This’ll give you the confidence you need to explore a little bit further, finding hidden gems and reminding you why you dreamed of moving to London in the first place.
