Private Halls
  • Generally offer a higher level of amenities than University Halls, at higher rents. Will be home to a more diverse mix of students and normally located close to campus.

View Private Halls in
  • A house share with a group of friends is often the lowest cost option and popular as the next step after living in Halls. Typically located in student friendly areas which require some travel to University.

View Houses in
  • A flat or apartment is similar to a house share on a smaller scale and will normally have one or two bedrooms. Ideal for smaller groups or couples.

View Flats in
  • Either a premium room in a Private Hall of Residence or a self-contained flat or apartment where all of the amenities are in one space. Typically the most expensive option.

View Studios in
  • A room in a house where the landlord or owner currently lives. A good option if you are not too concerned about living with other students and are budget conscious.

View Homestays in
  • A self-contained room, which includes most amenities but with shared bathroom facilities.

Spare room
  • A room available in a house share, where a group of existing housemates want to fill an empty room. A good way of getting the benefits of a house share without an established group of friends.

Why use Accommodation for Students

Living in London as a student

London should need no introduction, but just in case you haven’t heard of it, it is the capital of the United Kingdom – and the largest city for student accommodation too. With over 8 million residents, it has a massive impact on arts, commerce, entertainment, fashion, and media amongst other things. Interestingly enough, it also has the highest concentration of higher education facilities in Europe too.

London is home to several world-class institutions, such as Imperial College London, University College London, Kings College London and The London School of Economics London is also home to five medical schools and has a high number of affiliated teaching hospitals, and is also a major centre for biomedical research. There are lots of specialist art schools in London as well including LAMDA, RADA and the Royal College of Art.

There is so much to see and do in London that it is hard to narrow it down. It is home to some of the most recognisable attractions in the UK such as Buckingham Palace, Houses of Parliament, St Pauls Cathedral, Tower Bridge, Tower of London, and Westminster Abbey. You may be surprised to learn that there is also a lot of green space as well with around 35,000 acres of gardens, public parks and woodlands.

London has also hosted the Olympic Games three times – in 1908, 1948, and 2012 and so sport plays a large role in many Londoner's lives. Football is popular, of course, with five London clubs being in the premier league along with two Premiership rugby union and two rugby league clubs as well. London also plays host to the Wimbledon Tennis competition every year – the oldest tennis tournament in the world. There are also two Test Cricket Grounds in London as well.

As you can imagine, when it comes to shopping, food and drink, London has plenty to choose from as well. From designer brands to high street stores, to quirky markets and independent boutiques – London is a paradise for shopaholics. The nightlife is second to none as well – with numerous venues for live music too which makes it a very attractive place for students to live.

London Student Guide

London is a tricky city to write about. Not only because 1000-or-so words is nowhere near enough to even really begin to say everything great about it, but because it is always changing.
