If you are a full-year study abroad student you will be guaranteed housing if, prior to 31 May (the current housing deadline) you have firmly accepted your offer to study at UCL and have completed your online housing application. If you come to UCL for less than a full-year you will also normally be allocated housing but this cannot be guaranteed.

UCL has two types of accommodation:

  • UCL Halls of Residence (catered facilities): Single room: £160 – £190 per week
  • UCL Student Houses (self catered): Single room: £125 – £199 per week

Most student housing is within a few minutes’ walk of UCL, and most rooms are single study bedrooms, equipped with bed, desk, chairs, washbasin, bookcase, cupboard and internet access.

The price of UCL housing will vary depending on location and facilities. The prices shown above were the rates charged in 2013/14. Accommodation fees include room rental and use of communal areas, gas and electricity charges, block insurance policy and social events (in residences with a social committee).
