Welcome to the UCL Staff Accommodation Service
The UCL Staff Accommodation Service is based in Human Resources and our aim is to assist UCL staff with their accommodation needs when relocating to London or at anytime a change in accommodation is required.
You will find here a web link with a form which staff seeking accommodation should complete
We are also interested in hearing from property owners who wish to place their accommodation with us. There is demand for rooms, studios, flats and houses at any time during the year although September and October is a time of greatest demand as this is when the new academic year begins.
You will find here a web link with a form for completion by property owners wishing to place their properties with this service.
There are forms that you can download on both of these web links and as either potential tenant or property owner, you will need to complete these and return them to the accommodation office to proceed. Once received, we will look to match up a property with a potential tenant. Please note that properties are not placed on this website for general viewing, and can only be accessed by contacting the UCL Accommodation Service.
Please note that UCL does not own accommodation, so if you are unable to find your ideal accommodation through the available lists, your other options include:
- Local hotels – a large number are available in the Bloomsbury area and for those that are more affordable, please try http://www.imperialhotels.co.uk/default.aspx
- The Property Management Unit ( part of the University of London Housing Services) To apply for a visitors flat, enquiries should be addressed to Property Management Unit, Housing Services, ULU Building, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HY. If accommodation is available, visitors are required to complete a booking form, provide exact arrival and departure dates and details of credit card and return the completed bookings forms to the PMU office within 14 days. For further information phone Sam Nightingale on 020 7862 8078
- Goodenough College is also nearby offering excellent accommodation in the UCL area. Details can be found at http://club.goodenough.ac.uk/
Needing accommodation over the summer?
Remember that students halls of residence have rooms over the summer holidays. These are usually available mid June to mid August and can offer very good value for money especially as you can also get meals as well at reasonable rates. Contact the UCL Accommodation office if you want more information on summer accommodation.
What we don’t do….
- We do not manage properties, so all property owners will need to ensure that they have made appropriate arrangements as necessary.
- We are unable to arrange or assist with property exchanges.
- We are unable to intervene should problems arise. If you find you do need advice, then please call the accommodation service who will advise you who to contact.
- Limited resources mean we are unable to visit or check properties. Please ensure you make the appropriate checks before committing yourself to any accommodation.
- Please return your forms to the UCL Accommodation Service by either post, fax or as an email attachment.
