Accommodation

COVID-19 UPDATE: King’s Summer Programmes will not run on campus. King’s is currently moving most of its teaching online and it is likely that we will need to make some adjustments to summer modules accordingly. Latest information is here.

Staying in King’s accommodation not only allows you to experience life as a King’s student but is also an easy way to make friends with fellow summer students. It is one of the best and most affordable ways to live in central London; close to campus, classes and the tourist attractions of central London
