I was recently offered a place at King's College London, and I was wondering about the housing options. I'm an international student, and I'm interested in keeping a room on hold at Urbanest Westminster Bridge. However, after reading some posts on TSR, people have been complaining that WSBA houses mainly students from LSE and there is a lack of people from KCL going there. I have no idea if this is true or not (I doubt it is?)Anyway, what is my best bet for accommodation?
I was looking at private and en suite rooms, the private ones are 249/week in a 3person apt, and en suite 279/week in a 6person apt. I don't know if it's worth the extra 30 pounds just to have a private bathroom.
Private college housing/Uni halls? Watch

Hi! I'm also an international student going to King's in September, and i booked a room at Urbanest Tower Bridge a few days ago! But I did go and see WBSA on a trip to London, and while there are a lot of LSE people, this year there were two floors dedicated to KCL students. A guy that worked for Urbanest also said on the phone that WBSA was built with King's students in mind, but with KCL and LSE in such close proximity (at the Strand campus at least) it's not surprising that there are a lot of LSE students there!
In regards to standard vs ensuite, i wouldn't consider a room without an ensuite, but it's all personal preference! I hope this helps to make your decision easier!
