Location

The Costume Store is a great place for UAL students to live and a really popular choice especially for those studying at London College of Fashion.

The halls of residence are opposite North Acton tube station (Central Line), which offers quick and convenient access to many of the UAL College sites. The London College of Fashion site in Shepherd’s Bush is just 10 minutes away on the tube.

It is located on the site that once housed the BBC’s costume collection in North Acton, West London. It accommodates students in contemporary and stylish ensuite cluster flats and large self-contained studios.

The local area has a small supermarket, independent coffee shops, a local pub and various fast food take away restaurants.
