Living in London


We know finding somewhere convenient and cost-effective to live is a top priority for all new students and we give it equal importance. That's why we guarantee all first-year students a residential place.

Types of accommodation

You can choose between two kinds of accommodation:

i) Halls of Residence

Halls of Residence offer meals, usually breakfast and an evening dinner, from Monday to Friday.

ii) Student Houses

In Student Houses you will share kitchen facilities (cooker, refrigerator, freezer and microwave) to prepare your own meals.

The majority of the accommodation available is managed by UCL. Some accommodation is managed by partners such as the University of London or private operators.

The Student View

Rumnique Kalirai

"I lived in Max Rayne House. Living in UCL accommodation you meet so many people and make life-long friendships. Having your own space but still being in a student environment makes the transition from school/home to university much easier. Whether bonding over a cup of tea or at the postbox, there were so many ways to meet new people."

Kitchen, Langton Close

All UCL-run residences offer you:

  • A study-bedroom equipped with a bed, desk/table, desk chair and wardrobe
  • Location in London Zone 1 or Zone 2
  • Support and pastoral care
  • Wi-Fi access
  • Access to a launderette.

In addition, the majority of our accommodation includes on-site or shared facilities such as a TV lounge, computer room and bicycle racks.

Some of our self-catered sites provide shared study-bedrooms (for two students). Sharing a room can be very cost-effective, with shared room rates lower than single room rates, and it's a good way to make new friends on arrival.

Students with additional requirements

We have a limited number of rooms suitable for students with disabilities.

Couples and family accommodation

We have some limited accommodation available for students with families.
