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.
