If you’re looking for student accommodation, London is sure to have something for you. The city has a huge range of living options, some of which are in the very centre. They have excellent access to the main attractions. If you’re feeling unsure as to where you’d like to stay, here are three recommendations you may wish to consider…


There are countless accommodation options for students in Bloomsbury, and as well as being a lively culture hub, it’s also rather visually appealing – the quaint streets and lush green parks make the area quite unique when compared to the rest of London.

Bloomsbury’s central location in zone 1 means there are brilliant transport links and easy access to shops, restaurants, cafes and of course the theatres of the famous West End. Some student housing is also within walking distance of Covent Garden and SoHo – two unmissable spots.

If you’re looking to eat out on your student budget, there are a number of great restaurants around the area offering low-cost meals. Head to Icco for some freshly baked pizzas or
Bibimbap for a taste of Korean cuisine. The nearest underground station to Bloomsbury accommodation is Russell Square, but Kings Cross station is also close by.


Spitalfields is another fantastic location for halls of residence as you will be within walking distance of various tube stations, railways and unmissable attractions (the nearest tube station is Liverpool Street). With a number of interesting museums, colourful markets and beautiful buildings to explore, you’ll never tire of living in Spitalfields.

Some of the top nearby attractions include Dennis Severs’ House, Eleven Spitalfields Gallery and Secret Studio Escape Rooms. There are also a number of bars, restaurants and clubs nearby – plenty of places to check out with your friends in the evenings.

South Bank

If you’re looking for never-ending entertainment, you’ll want to live in South Bank’s student accommodation. London’s central hub can be found here – enjoy all the major tourist destinations, famous landmarks and choose from the ultimate selection of eateries and lively bars. There’s no end to the amazing attractions on offer, and of course the transport links are brilliant. The closest tube station to most of the student halls is Southwark.

Just a short walk from the accommodation are several theatres, galleries, and famous landmarks including the London Eye and Tower Bridge. If you’d like to immerse yourself in the tourist scene, this is the place to be.

When it comes to student accommodation, London really does have it all. Whether you’re looking to explore the city’s most popular spots or the quaint hidden gems, the Big Smoke will always have something for you. Find your perfect student housing today and begin planning your study abroad adventure.
