We recommend looking at Wigram House. This hall is in a central London location and is also close to the Victoria Line, so it provides a really easy commute to all the UAL colleges.


The Glassyard Building is found in the heart of south London and is perfect for students looking for an independent living experience.

The building houses 340 bedrooms and studio flats complete with ensuites and kitchenettes - 270 of these rooms are reserved for UAL students. Each flat cluster is shared between 4-10 students. There is a large dedicated creative workspace and common room, both designed with student needs in mind.

The Victoria line will take you from Stockwell to Oxford Circus in about 10 minutes and the easy travel connections make commuting to London College of Communication and Central Saint Martins simple and quick.

Brixton is just a 10-minute walk away and is full of popular cafés, bars and restaurants. Students are also close to Clapham, a popular south London area with a lively nightlife and beautiful green spaces, such as Clapham Common and Brockwell Park.
