    Hey man, check out my post, I'm renting a one bedroom flat in hale village, right opposite two blocks of student accommodation, so you can get the uni life while also having your own space.

    I'll be going to UCL. I've looked at some of your properties but is it possible to shorten the length of the contract? 51 weeks is way too long and somethong around 40 would be more practical.

    Nice!

    What were your thoughts on Tufnell House? It's around 20 minutes from the campus on the Northern Line (we have a fair few UCL students staying there).

    They offer 43 week tenancies which should be more in line with what you're looking for

    It's a little over my budget as I was looking for something £200 or less but I'm still considering it. Is it possible to be placed with other UCL students?

    Hey, grand felda looks really good actually! I'm glad I'm not the only first year UCL student going for private accommodation!

    Morning!

    Yes, when you select your room you can see who else is staying in the flat in terms of gender, academic year, and university

    Ha, yeah we're a pretty rare bunch - UCL accommodation seems to be pretty popular despite all the controversies around it. What are you studying?

    Hi, I am starting a masters in September, and since I have never lived in London before, I am having some problems in finding an accommodation that meets my requirements. It should be: near to UCL on foot, shared with other students, not more than 4 people living in the flat, and around 750/800 pcm. So Gelatogorl, I guess we are looking more or less for the same kind of accommodation. Given that, it would be nice if we stayed in contact, to help each other out

    Hey! I decided to go with Grand Felda House which is the price range you're looking for (190 pw), 4-5 people per flat but is in Wembley.

    haha, ea, it's practically dead in here compared to halls so kinda forces you to meet people at UCL. Love how new everything is and how close the stores are but I'm slowly but surely starting to hate the commute
