Living in Epsom as a student
Epsom is a market town in Surrey with a campus base belonging to the University of the Creative Arts. UCA is the second largest provider of creative arts education in the UK, with around 6,000 students distributed across their four campuses. Epsom is just a 30 minute train ride to Waterloo or Victoria and has an active local art scene with plenty of social opportunities, making this town a desirable place for students to live.
The student population in Epsom is flourishing and the town has a very successful accommodation provision. There are several halls of residence in Epsom, including halls of residence owned by the university and private properties. The university offers numerous halls for their students both on campus and in the surrounding area, these residences are all self-catered.
Private halls can often be dispersed throughout the area with excellent travel connections into campus. These private halls are managed by larger corporations that effectively administer student accommodation throughout the UK.
Shared houses are certainly a popular option for returning students, but also for students who feel that conventional halls are not right for them. This type of accommodation is particularly suited to groups of 4 or more students. In addition, privately rented flats and apartments are a popular choice, often situated nearby the university or with useful travel connections. Landlords or letting agents typically manage these private residences; they are specialists in student accommodation and there are many in the area with esteemed reputation.
