How to book your room

As a postgraduate, you get instant access to the accommodation portal. So, all you need to do is register and book your room. It’s as simple as that. The whole process can take less than five minutes. Remember, you must hold a Firm offer of study in order to be eligible.

To register and access the portal, you will need to enter your King's College London student ID number as your username and select 'reset password'. This will send a new temporary password to the email address we have on record. If you do not know your ID number, please refer to the offer letter that you have received via email, or any correspondence from King’s.

Help & advice

Once you can access the portal, you’ll be able to select from a number of criteria, such as budget or room type, and view availability across the residences. You can then pick up the exact room you like. It’s totally up to you. Remember to make your booking as soon as possible while your registration is still active. Registrations without a booking after four weeks will be cancelled.

All postgraduates are offered a 51-week contract, while students on a Study Abroad programme will be offered a 40-week contract in selected properties.

Make sure to read your licence agreement (contract) carefully before signing, as it is legally binding. Once you have accepted it, you will receive a confirmation email with a PDF attachment of your Licence Agreement. Please ensure that you check your spam/junk folder if you do not receive this email.

You can make changes to your booking later if you like, but this can only be done once and will be subject to availability.

You will now be asked to make a rent pre-payment of £450 in order to secure your room, but this pre-payment will be offset against the first instalment of rent due in October 2024.

And you’re done! Welcome to King’s Residences!
