Arranging Housing Yourself

London Contemporary Dance School students are typically spread out all over London, though a significant proportion live in an area of the city North or Northeast of LCDS. You can identify this area by following the Piccadilly Line North from Euston or Kings Cross St Pancras to stations like Caledonian Road, Holloway Road, Turnpike Lane, Wood Green and Bounds Green; the Victoria Line North to stations like Finsbury Park, Seven Sisters or Tottenham Hale or the Northern Line North to stations like Kentish Town, Archway, East Finchley. These areas are convenient in terms of cost and distance from LCDS.

If you don’t know of a postcode to refine your search, enter a tube station (such as those mentioned above) to hone in on an area. We would advise caution with the use of sites like Gumtree to located flatshares. While you will often need to move quickly to secure property, do not permit a potential landlord to pressure you into making a large deposit too soon. Indeed any property shown on the internet as seeming too good to be true almost certainly is and under no circumstances should you ever send money to a potential landlord via Western Union. The media has reported several scams that rely on this funding transfer mechanism.
