Accommodation for Study Abroad students

As a Study Abroad student, you will be guaranteed a place in one of the Halls of Residence below, if you apply by the Study Abroad application deadline.

UAL’s self-catered halls of residence can be found across London.

The majority of rooms have a shower and toilet attached to the room and others have access to a shared shower and a toilet; you will also have access to a shared kitchen.

If you will be studying abroad for the full academic year, you will be able to select from a wider range of UAL halls. Please contact studyabroadoffice@arts.ac.uk for more information.

    More information on summer accommodation. Students applying to a London College of Fashion Summer School programme are advised to email the Study Abroad team for help with applying for UAL halls of residence.

Further information

Student security and well-being is a top priority in UAL accommodation. All of the University’s residences include the following security features:

  • CCTV inside and outside the building
  • Secure entry using a fob or card
  • Staff available and contactable 24 hours a day

If you are offered a place in halls, you will need to sign a tenancy agreement. This is a binding legal contract that covers the length of your stay. Where possible, Study Abroad students can sign a shorter tenancy agreement. These short-term tenancies are more expensive than the standard full-length tenancies.
