The Student Advice Service offers year-round accommodation support by providing help and advice to students looking for, or currently staying in, Private Rented Accommodation or Halls of Residence.
Organising your accommodation may seem challenging, but the Student Advice Service can offer straightforward guidance and support as you decide where you would like to live during your studies. Please see our Accommodation Guide 2019/20 for step-by-step advice, visit our Accommodation: How it Works page or email the SAS if you have any questions at all.
Most of our students live in privately rented properties, sharing flats and houses with other Central students. Find out more about Privately Rented Accommodation.
For help, advice and the latest news on accommodation, please join our Facebook group or Facebook page and current students can visit the Student Accommodation page on MyCentral. Students can use the Facebook group as a forum to make contact with future housemates, advertise rooms and seek advice from current students. If you cannot access these, please contact the Student Advice Service.
Prospective students can also make appointments with the Student Advice Service to discuss accommodation options. Either in-person or telephone meetings can be arranged via email or by calling +44 (0)20 7559 3900.
We also hold a vast amount of information that can help students, including the Accommodation Guide, the Accommodation Housing Checklist, information about Transport for London fares and more. Contact us if you wish to access this material.
As well as Accommodation support from our own Student Advice Service, you are entitled to use the University of London’s Housing Services:
Two Sharers’ Days are organised each year to help students meet other potential housemates. The SAS, Student Union and University of London Housing Service will be there to provide advice and guidance. Local Letting Agents are also invited to present any suitable properties and begin the process of arranging a viewing.
The 2019 Sharers’ Days will take place at Central on the following days.
All students must reserve a place in order to attend. To reserve your place and recieve more information about the event, please contact the Student Advice Service with your full name and course. For more information on Accommodation Events, please join our Facebook group and follow the SAS on Twitter and Facebook.
Each year we hold an International Student Welcome Event where information is provided about settling into London. Students from the UK are also welcome to attend. More information about this event will be released in Summer 2019.
