UCL Accommodation



Applications for the 2024-25 academic year will open in March.

Current students can apply now for the 2023-24 academic year. To apply, log into the UCL Accommodation Portal and select the correct term to start your application. There is current availability in rooms across locations and a range of price points. Offers are sent to applicants daily, so please make sure you check your email inbox. 

UCL guarantees accommodation to students that are under 18 years old or students with additional requirements. First Year students are prioritised for UCL Accommodation, which means that they are offered spaces in UCL Accommodation ahead of returning students. During the academic year 2023-24, all applicants who met the eligibility criteria were allocated a place in UCL Accommodation. 

For incoming students, the first step is to review the Applying for UCL Accommodation webpage and check the eligibility criteria for the undergraduate and postgraduate applications. Once you confirm your eligibility, you can start learning about the Halls that are conveniently located in central London and the range of room types to suit different budgets.

At UCL, we want to provide you with a home away from home, where you will feel comfortable and supported. As a resident in UCL halls, you can join in weekly activities and events organised in your hall, as part of Flourish, our residential life programme. In UCL halls, we have Student Residence Advisers (SRAs), who are there to provide pastoral support, signpost residents to UCL support services, and help students settle into university life.   

If you are considering private accommodation, our Alternative Accommodation page contains useful resources and information to help you with your search.  

UCL Accommodation will continue to add halls to our portfolio in order to meet the demand for places and our website will be updated regularly to reflect this. Most recently, we have added 500+ new bed spaces for UCL Accommodation at Urbanest King’s Cross for 2023/24
