Undergraduate Accommodation

London is an exciting and creative city to live and study and although moving to a big city can feel daunting we are here to help.

Ravensbourne do not own halls of residence, instead we work with a number of private accommodation providers to offer students a home whilst at Ravensbourne.

We can refer students to a variety of accommodation providers including host families, studios and cluster flats as well as Scape Living, who we’ve partnered with to provide stylish accommodation a short walk away from the campus.

Renting in the private sector

London is a fantastic city to live and work and whilst it is a very positive experience, people often find the find the prospect of finding private sector housing daunting.  

London is distinct from most other places in the UK when it comes to private accommodation, particularly for students, because it is not usually possible to arrange your accommodation far in advance of starting your course. This is a great thing as it gives you plenty of time to think about your accommodation options and decide on the best one for you. Most people find their accommodation about 1-2 months before moving in.

Ulhs -logo

Ravensbourne have enlisted the services of the University of London Housing Services (ULHS) who run a private housing service for students in London. 

The ULHS offer advice on how to find accommodation, which areas to consider, what the options are, pricing and more. They produce a Private Housing Guide which contains a vast amount of information on how to search and secure accommodation in London which is also accessible online here.

They have an online database of accommodation offers from registered landlords and letting agents. These offers include flats and houses for groups as well as rooms in shared flats and houses.

They also offer housing advice, including a contract checking service which allows you to have your contract for private accommodation checked before you sign. Legal advice is also available should you get into any difficulty in private accommodation.

If you have any questions about finding accommodation in London then please contact ULHS:

Under 18s

Please note that the majority of student accommodation providers will not accept bookings from students who will be under the age of 18 on the first day of their course.  This is down to child protection issues.  The exception to this rule, is McMillan, London who are able to take a limited number of under 18 students.
