I will be studying Nursing at KCL mainly Guys and Waterloo campus.

Which accommodation do I go for, Champion Hill or Julian Markham House?

Champion Hill (Located in Denmark Hill):
Pros:
£155 with KAAS
3/4 Bed
22" monitor within the room (which I probs will not use)
Ensuite with better-looking bathroom
Free access to a gym
Camberwell/Dulwich area (which is a nice area apparently)
The building looks better and is located near greenery
Located close to Kings hospital
Super close to Denmark hill campus - 10 min walk
10 min walk from the overground station

Cons:
Further away from main campuses: 28 minutes to Guy's campus by bus, 35 Minutes to Waterloo campus by tube. Approx 1 hour walk (both campuses)
Have to rely on national rail, overground and buses


Julian Markham House:

Pros:
Closer to campuses - 13 Minutes to Guy's campus by tube, 23 minutes by walk. 11 minutes to Waterloo campus by bus and 25 minutes walk, 17 minutes to Denmark Hill campus by overground, 32 minutes by walk.
Location is Elephant and Castle, (Located in Southwark borough not sure if this area is nice)
En-suite
Security
Can use Bakerloo line which means I will have access to the tubes readily

Cons:
£169 with KAAS
Single bed
On a busy road
The building looks more like a travel lodge/premier inn old block hotel
Room and bathroom is not as nice as Champion Hill accommodation

Hi I am also studying nursing at King’s and I was also considering these accommodations to live in.
You have to apply to at least 3 different accommodations and these are not ranked.
I chose to apply for an en-suite and large en-suite in Champion Hill and an en-suite in Julian Markham.
I just got my accommodation letter through and I got en-suite at Champion Hill with KAAS.
I think it’s honestly down to whichever you prefer and which is still available as travel in London is very easy.
