Living in London

Chelsea College of Arts is located in Pimlico, in central London. Overlooking Tate Britain and the river Thames, it is a fantastic location to study art and design.

Living in halls of residence

Our students live in a wide variety of locations across London and choose where they live based on a number of things such as travel time to college, cost of accommodation and how close they are to friends. Housing options include halls of residence, private renting, house shares and living at home. The cost of private renting depends on the area in which you want to live.

If you're not sure where to start your search for a place to live visit the accommodation section of our website.
