Accommodation for Study Abroad students

Student bedroom at Sketch House with plants and desk

There are a variety of housing options available at UAL so Study Abroad student applicants have the opportunity to choose somewhere that suits both their budget and lifestyle.

UAL halls of residence

Study Abroad students will be guaranteed a place in University halls if they apply by the Study Abroad application deadline.

UAL’s self-catered halls of residence can be found across London. The majority of rooms have a shower and toilet attached to the room and others have access to a shared shower and a toilet; you will also have access to a shared kitchen.

Students studying for a full year can apply for any of the University’s hall of residence.

Students coming to UAL for 1 – 2 terms/semester can apply to The Costume Store.

Students on 3-week Summer Study Abroad programmes can apply to stay at Cordwainers Court, Sketch House and Gardens House. This does not apply to London College of Fashion summer schools.

Students on a London College of Fashion Summer School programme are advised to email the Study Abroad team for help applying for UAL halls of residence.

Further information

Student security and well-being is a top priority in UAL accommodation. All of the University’s residences include the following security features:

CCTV inside and outside the building

Secure entry using a fob or card

Staff available and contactable 24 hours a day

If you are offered a place in halls, you will need to sign a tenancy agreement. This is a binding legal contract that covers the length of your stay. Where possible, Study Abroad students can sign a shorter tenancy agreement. These short-term tenancies are more expensive than the standard full-length tenancies.

Paris Fashion and Culture Trip

French road signs

You will gain a unique perspective of Paris on this tour guided by LCF staff. It will reaffirm why the city is synonymous with fashion, culture and style.

We’ll go on a boat trip along the Seine, past the main sites including The Tuilerie Gardens, The Louvre, Notre Dame, and The Eiffel Tower. This will help you familiarise yourself with the layout of the city. You’ll visit a food market, to understand about French food. We will take you to the famous flea market of Clignancourt and will show you designer boutiques and introduce you to exclusive shopping districts of The Rue St Honore and The Palais Royale. You’ll experience the special ‘Frenchness’ of Montmartre and you’ll fall in love with the ‘Marais’. There’ll be free time to explore, so you can do all those ‘touristy’ things as well (The Eiffel Tower, The Arc de Triomphe and of course The Louvre.

Where we go and what we do is always based on what’s happening in Paris at that time of year. It will always be exciting, relevant and a trip you will never forget.

The Paris trip is an integral part of the LCF Study Abroad experience and included in the course fee on all LCF Study Abroad programmes.
