Private Student Hostels
For short term accommodation, while you organise something more permanent, consider staying in private student hostels where you will be able to mix with students from many different schools and colleges in London. Hostel vacancies fill up very quickly so please make sure to apply as soon as possible. For more information please use the web site links below. The sites give useful information for students studying in the UK, details of other student hostels in the London area, and tell you how to apply.
As the hostels are not normally within walking distance you will need to use public transport.
