Location


Sketch House is a new development exclusively for UAL students and the design was inspired by London’s artist community. Based right in the heart of Finsbury Park, this is a perfect location for students wishing to be close to Central London in a lively community.

Sketch House is a 5 minute walk from Finsbury Park Underground and National Rail station. The station is on both the Piccadilly and Victoria underground lines and offers links to Moorgate, Kings Cross and Cambridge.

The hall is also within walking distance of a number of bars, bakeries and cafes including the famous Park Theatre café bar.
