Study Abroad at UCL



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.

St Pancras Student Accommodation

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).

    St Pancras Student Accommodation
    Most of our student housing is located within walking distance from the main Bloomsbury campus. Most rooms are single study bedrooms, equipped with a bed, desk, chair, washbasin, bookcase, cupboard and Wi-Fi. The price of UCL allocated housing will vary depending on the location and facilities available; to get an idea of the different types of accommodation you can visit the UCL Student Accommodation website.

    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.
