WHEN AND WHERE TO LOOK

Most students want to live reasonably close to UCL but properties around Bloomsbury can cost more. Luckily, when it comes to commuting UCL is one of the most accessible universities in London. This means you have a wide range of areas to choose from to suit your budget.

London is a big, diverse city with excellent transport links. So, moving a little further out can help you save on your rent. Just remember to factor travel costs into your budget.

In reality, there’s no single ‘best place to live’. Each area has its own appeal. So, if you feel the property is good value, enjoy the location and feel the area is safe, that’s what matters.

Advice from UCL students

Three main ways to look:

  1. Online services (Zoopla, RightMove, Gumtree).
  2. High street letting agency.
  3. Word of mouth – talk to any people you know in years above!
