You will get the best London student experience staying at the University residence. We currently offer 2 student residences close by the school; the standard residence and the ‘student residence +’.
Our standard student residence is a few minutes away from Holloway Road tube station and only 15 minutes by public transport from our school. You stay in a single room and share the common areas, such as the kitchen, shower and toilet with 4-6 other students. The single room includes free broadband internet, a washbasin, bed, closet, desk, etc. Bed sheets are available, but you should bring your own towels. The minimum age for the standard student residence is 18 years old.
Student residence +
A few minutes away from Tufnell Park tube station and only 15 minutes by public transport from our school you will find the student residence +. Compared to the standard student residence, this option is a bit more luxurious. You stay in a single room with a private, en-suite bathroom and share the common areas, such as the kitchen and lounge area. Each student bedroom has a large fitted study desk, ample storage, timer controlled heating and internet point (with free broadband connection). Bed sheets are available, but you should bring your own towels. The minimum age for the student residence + is 18 years old.
You can book both residences all year round, but please mind that we have limited availability. In case the student residence is not available we will provide you with an alternative, comparable accommodation.
On a mere 10-15 minutes travel distance from the school we have some quality shared apartments. You have your own private room in an apartment shared with about 5 other language school students. You share the common areas such as the kitchen and bathroom. There is free wifi available. Bed sheets are available, but you should bring your own towels.
Reservations for double rooms can only be made for students travelling together. The minimum age for the shared apartment is 18 years old.
Our English host families will offer you their hospitality, a cosy place and the opportunity for a true cultural exchange during your stay in London. All families are located on an average 25 minutes travel distance (maximum 45 minutes), usually in zone 2, 3 or 4 (check the London zones here). Please mind that a host family is not always the typical family, but can also consist of a divorced woman (with or without children) who likes to cook for foreign students.
We believe this one of the best ways to get to know the culture of the country. Having your own room and keys, you will enjoy this home-style experience yet still have the comforts of independence. But it must be understood that each student must adhere to the rules and costumes of their family. Obviously you share the common areas such as the bathroom and living room with the family. The kitchen can be used only for making coffee, thee or a sandwich.
The host family with half board includes breakfast and dinner while the breakfast option includes breakfast only. Bed sheets are available, but you should bring your own towels. Reservations for double rooms can only be made for students travelling together.
