Hi, just wondering what plans csm students have for their accommodation if you're also on a budget?

I initially thought i'd be going to lcf so cordwainers court was the perfect option, roughly £170 a week and right next to the campus so no extra travel costs for a commute. but it now looks like i'll probably be going to csm and the nearest halls is sketch house which is like £240 which will leave me broke if i go there!

is anyone else in a similar position? i'd love to stay in halls for my first year but now i'm thinking it may me best to just do a house/flat share in islington near the campus

Hi there,

Firstly I wouldn't worry about not being able to be in the halls closest to your campus, if that is an option, as you'll find a mix of students from all the different colleges across all the UAL halls. You can get a student oyster card to make travel cheaper too. There are also some privately owned halls that may have cheaper room options.

If you're still considering private accommodation then I can recommend you check out the UAL/Arts SU Housing Facebook page and the University of London Housing page for alternative options to UAL halls.

As much as I enjoyed living in halls in my first year and met lots of people I knew other people living at home or in alternative housing who still got a great university experience so please don't be anxious that you'll miss out.

Have you looked at the UAL Funding webpage to see if you can get some more support?

I hope that is of some help and please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions about living in London on a budget or UAL in general.

All the best,
