Accommodation Support

The Student Advice Service offers year-round accommodation support by providing help and advice for students looking for, or currently staying in, halls of residence or private rented accommodation.

Accommodation Support

Central does not have its own Halls of Residence but receives annual allocations in the University of London’s Intercollegiate Halls. There are also several Private Halls of Residence close to Central.

To keep up to date with the news on Accommodation, please join our Facebook page or Facebook group, or visit the Student Accommodation page on Mahara.

Halls of Residence

Living in Halls of Residence is a popular choice with students as it can help from a budgetary point of view. You know exactly what your costs will be, including bills and meals, which can make managing your finances easier.

Most Halls of Residence also have Wardens to provide help and assistance.

Students with disabilities can be supported - please contact the Hall directly if you require accessible accommodation.

University of London Intercollegiate Halls

Each year, The University of London allocates rooms from their Intercollegiate Halls to Central. The Halls are located in Central London and are approximately a twenty-four minute journey by London underground or bus to Central. 

Halls are generally catered (two meals per day are provided and included in the rent) and you are not permitted to cook your own food.

Details on how and when to apply will be posted on the Student Advice Service Accommodation Facebook Page. If you do not have access to this site, please contact the Student Advice Service directly.

University of London Self Catered Accommodation

Through the University of London's Property Management Services, all students can apply for single rooms in self-catering flats at Clandon House in North Finchley. 

You are required to view this accommodation in person before you can accept a room there.

If you would like to apply for a room, please contact the Student Advice Service directly.

Private Halls of Accommodation

There are a number of privately run student halls, some run by charitable institutions and some by commercial companies. Charges vary widely from as little as £85 per week for a shared room to £300+ per week for a single study bedroom with en suite facilities.
