SOAS University of London


Applications for Housing

SOAS offer a variety of accommodation in locations from 2 minutes to 45 minutes travel to the SOAS campus, all within close proximity to amenities and transport links.  Our portfolio consists of halls of residence and rooms in shared flats/houses.  The accommodation has a huge range of options to suit individual budgets and requirements - twin, single, double rooms, studios, and flats as well as adapted, couples and family housing.  We have ensuite and non-ensuite self catered options. Students can also choose to live with host families.  All our hall accommodation has 24 hour security.

Applications for 2020-21

Discounts and term one semester bookings are available for some properties - please contact for details.

In order to apply, students must have firmly accepted their offer of a place at SOAS and paid the deposit if they are a PG student.  SOAS has negotiated special rates for our students with our accommodation partners and the current accommodation options can be found below, although there may be new additions to the portfolio during the application period.  Please take your time and read through the information and look at the virtual tours before making your decision. Only the room types listed on the SOAS pages are available for selection. Please do not write non-listed options in the notes part of the form as we do not have all the room types available to our students. Please note: You must select three different housing options which you are prepared to accept if offered. Our allocations are made based on vacancies across the accommodation portfolio and not the individual halls, therefore you may not be allocated your first choice. Please email for information and assistance, or for an appointment with the Accommodation Office/Housing Advisor.


Please ensure that you read the accommodation providers Covid 19 policy before signing your accommodation contract to understand what measures are in place relating to living arrangements and release policies for that particular hall of residence.
