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. Most people find their accommodation about 1-2 months before moving in.


Ravensbourne have enlisted the services of the University of London Housing Services (ULHS) who run a private housing service for many students in London. Both current students and those with an offer to study, can access these services.

The ULHS can 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 includes 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 which operates throughout the year. These offers include flats and houses for groups as well as rooms in shared flats and houses.

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

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