London Olympics Athletes' VillageDuring London 2012, around 17,000 athletes and officials will have the luxury of being able to walk to their events from the vibrant Athletes' Village, which is located in the east of the Olympic Park with close access to Stratford International Station. There will be 3,300 apartments and a total of 17,320 beds in the Village, with each athlete having 16 squared metres of floor space. Every comfortable apartment will have a TV, wireless internet and access to a communal square or courtyard. The views over the Olympic Park have been dubbed "inspirational" while every venue in the Park is less than a 20 minute walk away. The Village includes shops, restaurants and medical, media and leisure facilities, while a dining hall will cater for 5,500 athletes at a time. Athletes can meet with friends and family in a special 'Village Plaza' and the nearby high-speed Javelin ? shuttle service can whisk the athletes into central London in just seven minutes. After the Games, the Athletes' Village will be transformed into 2,800 new homes - 1,379 of which will be affordable homes - as London 2012 lives up to its promise of a lasting legacy. New parks, transport links and community facilities - including a new educational campus, Chobham Academy, with 1,800 places for students aged 3-19 - will also be opened.
