Hi, I have applied late for accommodation in UCL and I'm looking for alternatives. Does anyone have any recommendations? The most important factors are being within close proximity of UCL and within range £150-£250 pw. Self catered and decent looking preferably as well.

Hi, I am in the exact same position! I am starting to freak out that I am not going to find anywhere to live! I looked at the alternative accommodation on the UCL website but none of them really appealed to me. Guess I shouldn't be picky...

You can try UNITE or university of London halls (although they might have the same problem.) Although, if your budget is that wide, you'll be able to find private accommodation within walking distance (up to 30mins) of UCL.

If you're still in a pickle quite late in the game, you can still contact the accommodation office and see if they have any spaces for students. I think they open up again for students around 10th September.

Join a facebook fresher's page and there will be other people in your position. You might be able to get a flatshare with some other students.

Somebody else asked ghe same question in the accommodation thread so I've copied my answer from there




"Yeah don't bother with the UCAS adverts. They never advertise anything that the majority of students can afford and apparently some of those private halls have a lot of issues.

You could try signing up to the University of London housing services as they will show you properties that are basically covered by UoL so you have a low chance of getting ripped off.
Another option is looking on the facebook fresher pages as around this time of year people post for their spare rooms to be filled.
Also I suggest spareroom.co.uk and look for properties about in a 2/3 mile radius of the post code WC1A (assuming you're studying at the Bloomsbury campus). There is a slight chance you could end up with something dodgy since you can't visit the properties but most places are legit and cheap. There are some spare rooms in Camden going around for £150-£170 with bills included 

You could also go on the 'find a flatmate' section of TSR and look for threads from London students who want to share/have a spare room."

EDIT: Also, I strongly avoid year long contracts!

I'm looking for private accommodation as well (I'm international student). Maybe we could gather a few people and rent a flat in London I guess?

Hi All,

Hopefully, I'll be able to help!

Based on what some of you have mentioned in regards to proximity, and roughly £150-£250pw budget, I hope that I can give you a few recommendations as a bench mark to begin your search:

Woodland House
Popular with UCL residents (we have roughly 350 staying there this year), en suite bedrooms are from £235pw and is all-inclusive of bills (including up to 100 Mb Wi-fi, gym, private cinema etc.).
It's two stops on the Piccadilly like, so it will take you roughly under 20 minutes to reach your campus [MAP]

They have roughly around 20 rooms left available.

Wedgwood House
One stop further up on the Piccadilly Line [MAP], due to availability, the cheapest rooms we have available are studios for £269pw.
Has almost all the same facilities as Woodland

Tufnell House
Roughly 25 minute journey on the tube [MAP], Tufnell House is one of our most popular residences as en suite bedrooms begin from £219pw.

Hopefully that will help you to begin somewhere.

Please let me know if you have any questions on these, or our other London residences, and I'd be happy to help!
