Living and renting in London

Typical rent for student accommodation

Rent varies massively depending on where exactly you choose to live within the capital, and the quality of the property in question. As a general rule though, you can expect to be looking at the following rates per week in the following catchments:

  • Camden: £130.00-£160.00
  • Holborn: £150.00-£200.00
  • Bloomsbury: £180.00-£200.00

Don't forget! You’ll also need enough cash spare to cover letting agency fees and a deposit, which is usually the equivalent of one month’s rent.

Popular student areas in central London

London is of course the capital city, so there’s lots of choice and a huge amount of property available to rent. The main problem that you’ll encounter is finding something that is affordable to meet your student budget. If you are studying in London you are eligible for a higher maintenance loan to help with living costs (more on this here).

Camden, Holborn and Bloomsbury are all in Central London, so you’ll be able to get to the main university campuses without too much fuss. Always check how long it will take you to get from your front door to uni, and work out the costs of public transport.

You might find our guide to viewing student accommodation useful.

Finding cheap student housing

You could pay considerably less if you live further on the outskirts of Greater London and travel into university every day, whether it's central or further out. Don’t forget though to account for any extra transport costs which result from the place you choose to live.

It can also be much cheaper to share a house with a larger group. In other words it can be exceptionally more expensive to live alone or as a couple compared to sharing with a few more people, not just on the rent but also when splitting bills.
