UCL is a globally recognised Institution and one of the UK’s most successful Universities. The award winning Accommodation team sits within the UCL Estates division, and comprises of over 26 Halls that houses more than 6500 residents.
UCL Accommodation has set out an ambitious new vision of becoming the leading provider of accommodation in the HEI sector; delivering an exceptional student experience and is embarking on new strategy to delivery this vision. Students create the communities. Most of our Halls are close to campus in Bloomsbury, one of London’s most desirable neighbourhoods. We also have Halls in Camden and Victoria – exciting areas with their own quirks and treasures.
Despite London’s expensive property market and the pressure on student accommodation, UCL’s prices are kept as low as possible and are amongst the cheapest in the area.
The team also works hard to enhance the experience of every! student staying with us. We believe it’s everyone’s role in the team to help ensure that every resident in UCL Accommodation feels at home. We’re striving to provide every student with an experience as befits one of the world’s greatest universities in one of the most exciting cities on earth.
