LCDS does not operate any housing of its own, but does have in place mechanisms to ensure that accepted students will have a roof over their head prior to arrival in September. Please take some time to read through and research the options that are listed below.
University of London Housing Services have a database with offers of accommodation. If you want to rent shared housing accommodation, then the University of London Housing Services should be your first point of contact. You can use this service to seek help with finding accommodation or to obtain advice (including free legal advice) concerning housing. More
If you’re joining us in September and coming from the European Union or abroad I hope your search for accommodation is underway and going smoothly. Most of our students live in a shared house shared house, renting a room and sharing all bills.
However, if you are coming from outside the UK to study with us, in order to rent a room in shared house you may be asked to pay up to six month’s rent in advance to secure the tenancy, unless you know someone in the UK who is willing to act as your guarantor. A UK guarantor is a person who is resident in the UK and who undertakes to cover any losses if you miss your monthly rental payments for example, and to cover the costs of any damage that occurs while you are renting the room.
To get round the problem of paying up to six month’s rent in advance the School has two apartments, each with 7 rooms, which are managed on our behalf by University of London Housing Services and for which we are the guarantor. This means that students from outside the UK do not need to pay rent in advance.
Please take a look at the links below and if you think you’d like to rent a room in one of these apartment call 44+ 20 7664 4836 for more information:
