UCL Accommodation


Returning students' accommodation

UCL offers limited accommodation to returning students and those who do not meet the eligibility criteria to be guaranteed university accommodation.

Purpose built student accommodation 

UCL Accommodation is striving to help UCL students find high quality accommodation at affordable prices. As the demand for accommodation exceeds the capacity of our own properties, we have partnered with strategic private providers and secured offers exclusively for UCL students. Please note that these offers are time and capacity limited, and the providers may change the prices subject to demand. 

If you’re interested in a hall where the offer for UCL students has expired, or the UCL quota was met, you can still apply for accommodation in these properties on the provider’s website for the price advertised by the provider.
