Make London your home
LSBU offers you a chance to make an exciting and fulfilled life in the world’s most unique city. London offers something for everyone.
You’ll live right by all the action. Our residences are surrounded by some of the best food, art, sport and nightlife in the capital. You can come to LSBU to study, but you will come to south London to live.
The best city to be a student in the world
LSBU is the heart of London, a city repeatedly voted the No.1 city in the world to be a student thanks to the opportunities available. Beyond what the capital offers, on your doorstep you’ll have access to loads of clubs and societies to ensure you can find friends to live your best life with.
If you like the sound of living a stone’s throw from the Southbank, Waterloo and your lectures – as well as hundreds of like-minded new friends – what are you waiting for?
“Life while studying at LSBU was very hectic! When I wasn’t in lectures I was working one of 3 jobs; either as a Student Ambassador for LSBU; as a dance teacher; or as a Market Researcher. In some ways, this was very challenging, but in other ways, it was great because it taught me to be really disciplined with my time.”

The Student Accommodation Code
LSBU is a part of the UUK which protects our students’ rights to safe, high-quality accommodation. This ensures our students get the best out of their time living in our residences. It outlines everything students can expect from our us as well as their responsibilities as tenants. The Code has already raised standards of accommodation at LSBU and underpins our ongoing dedication to our students. We are fully committed to providing safe, comfortable living environments which will help support our students in leading a successful and enjoyable student life.
Our halls are representative of LSBU’s diverse and welcoming community.
The Accommodation Team are committed to ensuring that independent (care experienced and estranged), Refugee and Asylum Seeker Students have the opportunity to reside with us and are able to offer up to 52-week contracts to those students in our halls of residence.
If you have any disability, medical condition or need which may affect the type of accommodation you require, please let us know as soon as possible so we can work with you and talk about adjustments.
It’s no secret that our accommodation is pretty much unbeatable on price. We offer places to live far below market price in the capital, and with rents starting from £135 a week, you won’t have to worry about next month’s rent, so you can get on with living.
Which residence should I choose?
Our residences each have a unique feel and character to them. You’ll be part of London during some of the best days of your life.
