Accommodation

For many of our students, coming to university is the first time they will have lived away from home. Our Accommodation Services are here to help you find the right accommodation for your studies with us.

We have a range of on-campus accommodation and can also offer the opportunity to live in University Halls (Spring Mews) in London’s Zone 1 in Vauxhall.

If you decide to live off-campus, our Accommodation Services will also be able to help you find something in Roehampton and the surrounding area.

You can also check out this page on accommodation for more information on your options and living in London.

Off-Campus

Support finding accommodation | London

Choosing where to live is a big decision and each student has different preferences. If you decide to live off-campus, by living in the surrounding area, you can make the most of all that London has to offer, whilst still avoiding the more expensive rents found in the city centre.

To help you find the best accommodation to suit your needs, our Off-Campus Accommodation Office are on hand to discuss your options.

Prices

The cost for renting in London varies depending on the area in which you choose to live, and how many people you share the property with. Our Off-Campus Accommodation Office will be able to give you more information about the costs you should expect to pay.
