Living at The Forge is one of best places for students to live, especially if it’s your first time away from home. You make loads of friends - some who will become lifelong friends.  The on-site bar is great during Freshers’ Week so meeting new people is easy.  You can move in and not have to think about additional bills as everything is included, the on-site shop is really handy too.”
