Finding a place to live in London
The first question that many students ask is "where will I live?" If you're coming to study abroad for the full year, you'll be guaranteed a place in UCL accommodation as long as you have firmly accepted your offer to study at UCL and applied for accommodation by the deadline. Students coming to UCL for less than a full year will normally be allocated housing, but this cannot be guaranteed.
UCL has two types of accommodation:
- UCL Halls of Residence (these halls are catered; i.e. breakfast and an evening meal are provided from Monday - Friday; brunch on Saturday and Sunday). Prices for single rooms range from £180.67 - £235.76 per week (for the 2018/19 academic session).
- Student Houses (these halls are self-catered; i.e. students cook for themselves in onsite kitchens). Prices for single rooms range from £129.15 - £284.13 per week (for the 2018/19 academic session).
If you'd prefer to make your own arrangements for housing, you can get advice from the University of London Housing Services, who offer advice about finding suitable rented accommodation in London.
