    How much can you expect to pay ( per week) for rent/private accommodation after 1st year?

    What is the minimum you can expect to pay for a room within 30 minutes commute of the main campus?

    How far out (in terms of commuting time) do people tend to move?

    Hi, it really depends on where you live. Minimum I'd say about 170pw a week if you want to live within 30min and a single room. I'd say you'd be looking at about 180pw exc. bills for somewhere kind of close to College but definitely share a flat with your friends; this makes it cheaper.

    People are kind of spread out but a lot of people live in Fulham and Hammersmith because they're cheap(er) areas but they aren't within 30 minutes by walk. A lot also live in Earl's Court and some people live around Gloucester Road, which is super close to uni, if budget permits. Other places that some people live in include High Street Ken, West Ken/Barons Court and Bayswater

    I personally live in Chelsea and know a few other people who live in Chelsea but I pay ~200pw to live in a maisonette. Lovely area and flat - we have a balcony/massive living room/3 beds but a couple is sharing a room so it is cheaper.
