Advice for Returning Students
Due to unprecedented demand from first year students who are guaranteed accommodation, we advise returning students to consider making alterative arrangements for accommodation. Here are some resources below to help you with your search.
Where to look for somewhere to live
When searching for accommodation, we would advise sticking to the University of London property database or letting agents who are registered with a professional body. You may also want to read our guide to accommodation scams if you are looking for accommodation, so that you can take reasonable steps to check the letting is genuine.
Many students also use Spareroom Students, Rightmove Student and Zoopla to find accommodation in the private sector.
You may wish to check with our preferred partners, Unite and Scape, who currently have availability to book direct with them.
