We are Canvas. A DOOR TO A WORLD OF POSSIBILITIES
Canvas is a happy place, a safe space, and a creative base from where to showcase what makes you great. It’s a community, where everything is geared around how you like to live and what you want to do. From personalised services to specially curated events, we exist to help make your student days your best days.
AMENITIES DESIGNED AROUND YOUR SCHEDULE
We don’t operate typical business hours at Canvas. Business hours are too structured, too limited. Instead, we work student hours, with a 24-hour onsite team and gym, and social and study spaces that are available to access whenever you need them. So you’re never forced to be at your best when you’d rather be in bed.
Be Part Of a community
The student community at Canvas is about the small things: a friendly wave, a recommendation and a check-in to make sure you’re okay. It’s helping each other out. It’s providing a space to relax, have fun and make friends. It’s feeling comfortable enough to pop downstairs for a coffee in your lounge gear. It’s embracing each other’s hobbies, beliefs and quirky ways and making you feel welcome regardless of where you’re from or where you’re going. Because when the small things are right, you can achieve big things.
We care about you
We’re only happy when you're happy. If you’re ever bored, lonely, fed-up or bursting to tell someone about that new thing you’re excited about, talk to us. We’ve got a team full of great listeners and expert chatters. If you’d rather not talk to us, talk to your friends or family instead. We’ve got spaces for them to stay and spend time with you. Or if you feel like you need professional support, make the most of our 24/7 dedicated support service to speak with trained counsellors and free access to the My Healthy Advantage app. We can also put you in-touch with our mental health and wellbeing partners, including:
WE CARE ABOUT GOOD TIMES
Cake-baking, game-playing or quiz winning. Nights out with knees up or nights in with feet up. Afternoons of learning something new and evenings of pool or table tennis for two. When you have the space and events that we do and the diverse, creative student residents that we do, every day has the potential to be your best one yet.
We run a variety of in-person and virtual resident events. Semester 1 event info coming soon. Chat to us for more details.
We care about the planet
We are forward-thinkers, big dreamers and eternal optimists. We believe that what we do today, affects tomorrow and determines the future. We’re in a position to make a difference. And we’re committed to using this position to listen, learn and make decisions that, however small, positively impact our community, our people and our planet. We build our sustainability pledge into all aspects of Canvas life, encouraging our residents to join us on the journey and have it at the forefront of our minds when selecting suppliers. Together, we can keep our planet happy and healthy.
Don't just take our word for it
My experience staying in Canvas Glasgow has been wonderful! I enjoy the overall friendly atmosphere in the student accommodation, where the members of staff are always ready help you with any queries. The location is extremely convenient for the students studying in GCU and University of Strathclyde. It takes just 5 minutes to get to the city centre, which makes it so easy to enjoy the urban life in Glasgow. Despite of the current situation, residents participate in various online events that entertain you through the lockdown. Hoping that next year brings more exciting events and enjoyable experience here in Canvas Glasgow.

For the past two years, I have been living in Canvas Glasgow and I could not have been happier. The facilities are modern and spacious. The staff is always there for support and they have arranged a broad variety of events throughout the year, which have made me enjoy my stay in this residence even more!

The Canvas Wembley building has exceeded my expectations in terms of student accommodation. The newly-built site, perfectly located within the Wembley area and full of amenities truly served its purpose of being a home away from home. Other than being the newest and best-equipped, what differentiated the site from others, was the team - the people running the show. The Canvas Wembley team has shown that they would go above and beyond for their residents, always catering to the needs of all kinds of different people. I would highly recommend this accommodation!

I think the soundproofing here is very good, and I rarely hear any noise when trains are passing or when music is playing next door. The management team is on-site 24 hours a day, so I can always go down and ask for help. It's also relatively easy to get around, with the Victoria Line and the Overground getting me to central London in under 30 minutes.
Stayed at London Walthamstow
The site is located at a very accessible area in between Walthamstow Central and Stratford, just perfect for people like me who visit these places often but don't want to be living surrounded by busy crowds. Most importantly the building is just right beside the Tube and Overground station, which directly connects to Central London. The site is well equipped and you get spacious rooms at affordable prices not often seen in London. Last but not least, a wonderful and friendly team gives support for any help we need, giving me the impression of being within a very cosy community and environment!

I really enjoyed it here at Arundel House. It’s a very social place. The receptionists are good people in the day and in the night and can solve problems whenever and wherever. Some of the facilities include the gym and not forgetting the common room too. Everybody’s friendly and I would recommend this as an accommodation to live in, especially if you’re trying to get around the campus or lectures on time. Whether you want to live high up or down low it is ideal. The best accommodation I would recommend in Coventry.

Living at Canvas has played a key role in my 1st year University experience. The building contains all of the necessary resources to facilitate a productive student environment (Study room, gym, wash/dry facilities etc.) along with great personal and social spaces. The staff have been fantastic - nothing is too much to ask, they have been welcoming and accommodating from day one. I would highly recommend Canvas to any student looking for state of the art student accommodation that includes a homelike feel along with great convenience

I spent my Bachelor years in a normal student house, and it was okay but not ideal, due to a lot of daily things to manage yourself since the landlords are not really listening to any of your problems, especially if you are an international. But thanks to Canvas, all these issues disappeared immediately. When I moved in, it was like a dream, really! Everything went so smooth, it was like buying a burger, haha, extremely easy and problem-free. Their high standards for interior design and maintenance are a big plus for a student like me that wants to feel safe and comfortable with their new home. However, I forgot to mention, you literally have everything at your fingertips, from common areas (cinema room, games, study room, comfy couches everywhere to chill/work) to the possibility of renting a car/bike, the gym is next door, great location, super close to the city center. Basically, you have everything you would need as a student and even more. Not to mention the staff, which is the biggest upside of Canvas Utrecht. Every time I reach them, they have an answer and fix my problems asap. They are very sharp and know what they are doing. Overall, Canvas is really the best place you can live as a student.

I have been living in Canvas for about a month now, and it has been the best experience I could have ever imagined. Everyone gave me a warm welcome, the Canvas staff, friends, and great new neighbours. All the facilities here, such as the common rooms have allowed me to meet so many bright people from all around the world. I already made so many great friends here, and this is only the beginning. Since I have ever heard about Canvas Utrecht, I’ve been wanting to live here. The idea of so many students living in the same building sounded like a dream to me. So being able to call Canvas my new home is great a pleasure. I could not recommend it enough!
