Housing

You will arrange your own housing in the community near the university, typically in the Elephant and Castle area, with the guidance provided by the study center. Most students rent a room in a shared house with other students or arrange their own homestay. There is also a limited number of university dormitories available. UAL’s accommodation webpage features 360-degree virtual tours of all the dorms, enabling you to see a model of each hall’s room options and facilities.
