University (Intercollegiate) Halls of Residence

Intercollegiate Halls

The deadline for applying to the intercollegiate halls has now passed (midnight BST Sunday 3 July 2016).

For waiting list information, please see below.  

These are student halls of residence, with rooms allocated to the different institutions belonging to the University of London (of which LSHTM is one).  For 2016-17, LSHTM has an allocation of 25 rooms (see below). Applications are considered equally once the deadline closes, regardless of when the application was received. You should receive a response in mid- to late July. Full-time students with a conditional or unconditional offer from LSHTM can apply.  Please note that competition for these halls is high; we recommend that you look into alternative accommodation.  See below for how to apply to The Gardens, a new hall of residence due for completion in September 2016.

After the closing date: A waiting list will open on 2 September at 17:00 and will close on 3 September at 13:00, and will allow you to apply for rooms (including rooms in the Gardne Halls, more information below) which have not been filled by other University of London students. To apply to the waiting list, apply via the link below during the waiting list opening dates specified above. FAQs about the waiting list.
