We have a range of halls available for students at SOAS University of London, at a variety of prices. We have shared, single and double rooms, ensuite and non-ensuite, as well as catered and self catered. Studio and flats are also available. All our halls are within close travelling distance to the main SOAS campus.

Living in halls is a great way to get to know other people and can be lots of fun. To enhance your student experience, you will normally share a mixed gender flat with other students from different backgrounds and courses. There is also a small female only hall of residence available called Goldsmiths House.

Current Students

Sanctuary and Intercollegiate Halls are not available for continuing students (except in the case of students with disability requirements) a waiting list will operate later in the year if rooms are available after the allocation of new students.  You are advised to explore other SOAS accommodation options however. Please regularly check our accommodation pages for updates.
