    Im on a gap year(deferred) and I already have a place at Kings College.
    The most convenient places of accommodation are either too far or too expensive. I will be studying at the Strand Campus, does anyone know any good places for accommodation in the area under 4k a year?

    Unfortunately student accommodation in London does get very expensive. Maybe you could live in the farther away accommodation and buy a bus pass/oyster card?

      Stay away from Unite, I've heard bad things.

      I got a really good place after lots of searching and calling. Keep at it. If Kings has an accommodation database use that! Imperials one is very good!

      Not going for King's Accommodation is a mistake I would say, as it will be very very hard to find cheaper options. Even if you do find one, that place probably won't be as social and fun. King's dorms are generally good value, not to mention the catered intercollegiate halls, if you're into that.
