University (Intercollegiate) Halls of Residence

Intercollegiate Halls

These are student halls of residence, with rooms allocated to the different institutions belonging to the University of London (of which the School is one). For 2018-19, the School has an allocation of 55 rooms (see details below). Follow the links for each halls for further details including the weekly rental costs.

Full-time students with a conditional or unconditional offer from the School can apply for the halls. However when making offers for rooms, we will prioritise those with unconditional offers so we suggest you meet the conditions of your offer as soon as possible if you want to apply for halls. To check your offer conditions, you should refer to your offer letter or email the Admissions team.

Intercollegiate halls tenancies usually last until mid to late June (allowing students to stay in the same accommodation until the main MSc exams). If you decide to stay in London beyond that, the accommodation provider may move you to a different room within the same building, or to a different hall. Students in halls will be asked to decide around February / March each year whether they would like to stay longer.

Please note that competition for these halls is high so we recommend that you also look into alternative accommodation in case you are not offered a place.
