Location


Portland House (formerly known as Camberwell Campus) is made up of four 18th century Grade II listed buildings.

This hall accommodates students in affordable housing on the doorstep of Camberwell College of Arts.

The refurbishment of these landmark buildings has created a traditional campus-style experience for Camberwell students. The accommodation consists of single and twin rooms, as well as self-contained studio flats. The gardens surrounding the buildings are for the use of resident students.

There are 144 bedrooms available for UAL students and each flat cluster will be shared between 2-11 students.

Set in the heart of Camberwell, this site benefits from being situated next to Camberwell College of Arts but also within a short a journey to London College of Communication and Chelsea College of Arts.
