Central receives annual allocations in the University of London’s Intercollegiate Halls across several great locations in central London, with a range of Private Halls of Residence and Rented Accommodation options available close to Central.
There are two options for students who want to live in Halls: The University of London Intercollegiate Halls and Private Halls.
Living in Halls of Residence is a popular choice for 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.
Halls of Residence can also be a great idea if you like the thought of living with students who may study other subjects outside of performing arts and drama, such as history or geology.
Most Halls of Residence also have Wardens to provide help and assistance.
If you have a disability and are seeking for advice on adaptations you may need for accommodation, please see Information for Students with a Disability.
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 25 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.
Further information on Accommodation options can be found on the Accommodation webpage.
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. Clandon House is approximately 30 minutes from Central by bus.
You are required to view this accommodation in person before you can accept a room there.
If you wish to apply for one of the self-catered apartments in Gower Street or a room in Clandon House please book a viewing by contacting the Property Management Unit (PMU). There is no formal application procedure and the accommodation is offered on a first-come first-served basis.
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.
