Halls of residence

Article

We have just under 1,400 rooms in our halls of residence. Many halls are located in New Cross, while others are a short commute away and allow you to live in a different part of London. Our halls are very competitively priced in comparison to other local London universities.

Students in their kitchen

Living in London

London is an exciting and inspiring place to live – but we understand the cost of living in the capital can be high. We offer a range of accommodation to suit all budgets including some of the cheapest locally, and work hard to keep rents low – including using a six-figure subsidy to support halls. 

We also have a range of financial support available.

Security and wellbeing 

Your safety and wellbeing is very important to us, and we have a range of trained staff who are here to support you.

All residents have access to security staff and office teams who are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide a safe and secure living environment. We also have a sector-leading residence life team who provide holistic support for students.
