Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. 

Tower Hill was framed for its high profile public executions, but don’t worry the last of these were carried out in 1747!

"Urbanest Tower Bridge is not only a wonderful, central location with easy access to Pearson but offers a modern, open and welcoming environment with a variety of beautifully furnished rooms and plenty of bathrooms. The communal areas are a great place to meet up with friends, work or chill out and it is safe and secure. I thoroughly enjoyed looking round and there are some stunning views overlooking Tower Bridge. I definitely recommend it."

Lots of great local shops. Channel 4’s Spaced comedy drama was filmed and located here.  Oh and Jeremy Corbyn (current Labour leader) lives here.

“I decided to live in Tufnell Park halls.  I’m glad I made that decision as my time in halls has been great, and I get on really well with my flatmates.  You’ll get a good-sized room, small en-suite and a sizable kitchen/lounge, so you can relax with your flatmates at the end of the day.  It’s a five minute walk from the nearest tube station and around 20 minutes away from 80 Strand by tube, making travel easy”.

2. Living at home

Living in student accommodation can be expensive, and for those who have the option, living at home or with relatives or friends may offer a more affordable lifestyle. Some Pearson College London students choose to live at home and commute to college.

3. Privately renting

Similar to the above section ‘living at home’ privately renting may suit you.  Some Pearson College London students choose to privately rent, sometimes from day 1 or sometimes after living in student accommodation or living at home. 

We would recommend that you look at your options, check travel times and costs, speak to current students (during your Applicant Day you will have the opportunity to speak to current students and the Accommodation Manager) and research what will suit your budget and lifestyle. Our student testimonials may help.

I would recommend that you visit the accommodation you’re considering before booking if possible. I immediately knew that I would be happy here when I looked around in the summer; your initial instinct is often a good way of knowing whether it is the right place for you.
