    Hello. I am currently an American who is currently a junior (second to last year) in high school. I am looking to go to college in the UK, and LSE is at the top of my list of target universities. I know LSE and other University of London schools guarantee accommodation for the first year for international students, but what are my chances of getting accommodation in my second and third years as an international student? Also, what are my chances of getting accommodation at other University of London schools after the first year? I'm not entirely sure of my ability to pay the rent in such an expensive city. Any help is appreciated.

    Don't expect to be in hall accomodation after the first year. There is 0% chance of getting accepted by university accommodation outside of the LSE, even in the first year (bar intercollegiate halls).

    The only exceptions to this rule are if you are elected into the hall committee, but I wouldn't count on this, and it only gives you 1 extra year anyway.

    Long story short, you need to find accommodation for the 2nd and 3rd years.
