Student Accommodation in London

Student Accommodation & Housing for Rent in London

London has an enormous student population, of 400.000. Just to place this in context, that is slightly less students as Manchester has in total population. Small wonder, with over 50 universities calling London their home, including 9 of the world’s top 400 higher education institutions and 5 of the UK’s prestigious Russell Group of universities. You’ll also be in good company as one of the nearly 400,000 students from all over the world living and studying in the capital. Students will find all they need here, though finding a proper place to live off-campus might be tough. Therefore, a bit of imagination and leaving some expectations behind at the door might prove necessary. As student Ben Lifton at the University of Arts in London states in the Guardian: “London is a brilliant city to go to uni in because it is where everyone moves to after studying elsewhere within the UK to get a job. That means we already have a leg up, because we know the best and cheapest places to live and understand the tube map. Moving to London is daunting at first, but it does make you grow up.”
