Undergraduate prospectus


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.


It's simple. We will guarantee you a residential place, no matter where you live now, as long as you:

  • will be a single, first-year undergraduate
  • have chosen UCL as your firm choice through UCAS by the deadline (currently 31 May of the year of entry)
  • submit your housing application online by the deadline (currently 31 May of the year of entry)
  • have not lived or studied at a university in London (inside the M25 motorway) before.

In addition, we guarantee students who are care leavers a residential place for the duration of their degree programme.
