im also doing psychology but with a placement year I've heard guys campus and accoms near there so GDSA and SSA are quite good for social life. there's also guys bar in guys campus which is basically full of students. i don't know too much about other students who have done gap years but no matter which accom you choose there's always gonna be a good night/social life coz its london , always new opportunities to meet other people .
Hope this helps x

oh swear , i watched a few yt vids and people said the night life is pretty decent just expensive lol, but i guess its harder coz kcl isn't a proper campus, its so separated so may be slightly harder to meet people. But if you wanna start tryna make friends, join kcl facebook groups and once you've booked your accom, there should be WhatsApp links for your accommodation. but honestly, London is great and you'll meet loads of people who've done gap years too! are you a local student?

I saw Wolfson House appear two days ago but they went quite quickly and I've been checking every day since I gained access to the portal (28 April) and have not seen Stamford Street or Great Dover Street sadly. I think i'm going to go for Orchard Lisle even though it's a bit of trek to Strand and Waterloo campus

Yeah same position as you, will be in Strand and might book OL, not that much of a trek, Ldn Bridge to Waterloo is about 20 minutes at a good pace

Neither are on there at the moment but think they are releasing them in batches now. GDSA hasn’t been on there since i got the invitation but i think they still have some to release.

I called up KCL residences a couple times and yesterday a lady told me that if they are not appearing on the portal that means all the rooms have been allocated already. So any remaining rooms now are the ones left. But that still doesn't mean we can't get a preferred residence like SSA or GDS, as people may cancel and change rooms or when it comes to after exams people may not get in too. You can always book one of the remaining rooms and then just keep an eye on the portal in case they do show up and use the 1 room change ability.
