  • Live independently in a privately rented flat or house share

Our halls include

  • Single study bedrooms arranged in flats in modern halls
  • Self-catering with shared kitchens and on-site launderette facilities
  • Most rooms are en suite; all have free internet access and are non-smoking
  • On-site management with 24-hour security

Renting privately

You may prefer to live independently in the local area rather than in the University's halls of residence. With a good range of properties on offer, you can easily find a flat or house that suits you.

Private accommodation offers flexibility and more choice. You can:

  • Live near your campus, in Kingston, in central London or elsewhere
  • Choose who to share your flat or house with
  • Pay your rent monthly

The University and the ISC offer support to help you find your flatmates and look for your new home.

How much will it cost?

Based on prices for the 2016/17 academic year, you can expect to pay in a region of £150 - £200 per week to rent privately, depending on location, room size, facilities and number of students sharing. Usually you will also be expected to pay utility bills (electricity, water etc) in addition to the rent.
