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.

Types of accommodation

Our accommodation fees include room rental and use of communal areas, utility charges including Wi-Fi, basic contents insurance and vibrant Hall communities led by residents. The fees you pay will vary depending on location and facilities. There are two types of accommodation available:

Kitchen at Langton Close

i) Halls of Residence

Halls of Residence offer meals (breakfast and an evening dinner from Monday to Friday and brunch at weekends).

ii) Student Houses

In Student Houses you will share kitchen facilities (cooker, refrigerator, freezer, kettle, toaster and microwave) to prepare your own meals.

The majority of the accommodation available is managed by UCL. Some accommodation is managed by partners such as the University of London or private operators.

The Student View

Alicia Alli

"Being able to walk or take a 10-minute tube ride to all the resources in London has been a massive factor in making studying so much easier. I may be biased as I am from London but there's no better place to study. In addition to the libraries at UCL I have used Senate House Library, The British Museum, London Metropolitan Archives, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the British Library."

Alicia Alli, Third Year, History BA
