Student Accommodation

Student Hostels Homestay Accommodation Alternative Accommodation Options

Our Student Services team work hard to ensure that students are comfortably accommodated and well looked after.

For many students from outside London this will be their first time living away from home. The expertise of our team is second to none in providing them with the help and guidance they need.

Even before these students start their journey to London our Student Services team are working on their behalf, reserving their accommodation and arranging airport collection if required.

Then, once the course is under way, the Student Services team remains available to help the new students overcome any difficulties they may face in the first few weeks.

What types of accommodation can the College arrange?

As Europe's largest city London offers a vast range of accommodation, with students tending to stay in hostels, in Halls of Residences, with host families (also known as Homestay) or renting a flat or house and sharing with other students.

Although the majority of students will probably end up renting a shared flat / house this is probably best arranged once you have been in London for a little while, to gain experience, to get your bearings and to have time to make friends.

So, if you are coming to London for the first time we recommend that you choose to either spend at least the first few weeks in a hostel or with a host family, both of which we can arrange.

How to book your accommodation

The College only offers a direct booking service for accommodation in its core selection of Student Hostels or, in certain cases, Homestays.

Our Student Services team are happy to provide information and advice regarding other accommodation options but students will need to explore and confirm any booking in alternative accommodation themselves.

If you would like the College to book Student Hostel accommodation on your behalf then you will need to complete and return the Accommodation Booking Form that you will be sent once you have accepted the offer of a place at a course and paid tuition fees.

You must have paid the College in advance for your accommodation. There is a £400 minimum deposit needed.

Bookings should be confirmed at least 72 hours in advance of arrival, and may be subject to a cancellation fee.

When we have confirmed your hostel booking, we will send you (by email) a reservation confirmation and directions to your accommodation.

NB. International students requiring a visa to come to the UK to study should wait until their visa is confirmed before booking their accommodation.
