Many of our short course students choose to use hotels in central London to take advantage of the city's galleries, theatres, bars and restaurants.

Choosing a hotel

If you would like to stay within easy reach of your College, we'd suggest you search for hotels in the following areas:

  • Camberwell College of Arts: Camberwell
  • Central Saint Martins: King's Cross St. Pancras / Bloomsbury
  • Chelsea College of Arts: Pimlico / Westminster
  • London College of Communication: Elephant & Castle / Waterloo
  • London College of Fashion: Please refer to the London College of Fashion webpages for details of campus locations
  • Wimbledon College of Arts: Richmond / Wimbledon

We recommend you check the travel options and journey times between the hotel and your College before booking. Both City Mapper and Google Maps provide reliable real-time information.


If you have any complaints about your accommodation or its booking, please contact the organisation with which you booked your accommodation.
