Kensington Academy

Residences

We understand that finding good quality, affordable student accommodation in London can be difficult. That’s why we have a selection of reasonably priced rooms in great central locations (Zones 1-2).

All college residences are a short walk or tube journey to the College and they are self-catered (meaning you have to provide your own food). Staying with us allows you to be independent whilst being able to make friends with people from all over the world. Our rooms have good quality facilities and every building has a warden to make sure it is safe.

Drapery

Drapery (formerly known as Liberty) puts you right next to David Game College within a 10 minute walk. Conveniently positioned near Aldgate, Tower Hill and Liverpool Street stations, you will be able to reach London’s major train stations in minutes. Drapery makes you feel right at home, with all bills included, en-suite facilities in each room and access to the on-site gym, so that you can relax and focus on your studies. Cleaning is not included at this residence, we expect students to keep their own rooms and common areas clean.
