Living in London
Studying for a degree takes dedication and hard work but we also want you to have lots of fun. Our amazing location in the heart of Central London means you’ll benefit from being a student in what many call the greatest city on Earth.
London is home to an estimated 350,000 students at any one time, so you’ll be part of a huge student community too, never short of people to meet or things to do. We don’t have a traditional campus; we have the whole of London and all it has to offer.
Where will I study?
You'll be based at 190 High Holborn, at the centre of London’s business district, which offers a hive of global corporations, law firms and savvy start-ups. Holborn is a great place to study and play, thanks to its central location which is perfectly located for the hubs of Covent Garden and Bloomsbury. You may also have opportunities to visit the workplaces of some of our industry partners.
What about after lectures?
When you finish for the day, you’ll be just minutes from the famous West End, if you want to snap up late deals for some of the world’s most famous musicals, plays and comedy shows. Covent Garden is on your doorstep and Oxford Street a couple of stops on the tube, so you’ll also have loads of fantastic shops, restaurants and cafes to explore. Best of all, you’ll be able to get student discounts in so many places!
What are the options for living in London?
Whether you live in halls, private accommodation, or outside London, you'll get the best of London life. Our students live in all kinds of places, depending on their personal circumstances and where they want to be.
Halls of residence
Most of our first year students choose to live in one of our recommended halls of residence. We recommend a number of accommodation providers to our students, where you'll get a chance to live with your fellow students, and students from universities across London, giving you lots of social opportunities. You’ll also benefit from great on-site facilities and security, and having all your utility bills included in your rent.
After a year in halls, most students choose to live in privately rented houses and flats. There’s no shortage of great places to live in London, with arty East London, cosmopolitan North London and leafy Clapham in the South, all a short journey away from where you’ll study.
Many of our students choose to live outside London and commute by train instead. As our teaching location is based in Central London with three tube stations less than a ten-minute walk away, commuting is definitely doable.
