College Grove, on campus accommodation, is scheduled a complete refurbishment therefore will not be available to our 2024/25 intake, however, don't worry, we have one hall which solely accommodates RVC students – Mary Brancker House, which is a 20 minute walk away in Kentish Town.  Accommodation offered is self-catered and all students have their own en-suite room.

In addition to Mary Brancker House, we will be offering places at Garden Halls, St Pancras and Eleanor Rosa House, Stratford.  

There may be some further options made available at a later point and any further updates will be provided when you make your accommodation application via Admissions.

Living in accommodation is a fantastic way to meet new students who are all in the same situation as you (just try not to be the person setting the fire alarm off at 3.00am on a cold February morning while burning your toast!).

For those going into their 2nd year, unfortunately, it is not possible to remain in Camden accommodation, we therefore strongly recommend getting in touch with the 

University of London Housing Services who offer a wealth of advice and support.

Private accommodation

If living in halls doesn’t appeal to you, privately rented accommodation can be found all over London. However, there are pros and cons to this arrangement. You will be able to live by your own rules (although preferably within the landlord’s!) but things can be tricky if you have problems with a challenging landlord, or other tenants. It’s up to you of course, but most students usually consider living in private accommodation after their first year, once they’ve got a feel for the place and know who they want to live with.

Seriously considering ‘going private’?

 University of London Housing Services (ULHS) maintains a landlord registration scheme, operates a contact list for students offering or wanting accommodation, and assists with tenancy agreement, deposit and rent queries. It supplies a Tenancy Agreement Pack for most self-contained accommodation, a Licence Pack for accommodation with a resident landlord, and lists of registered accommodation agencies, hostels and inexpensive hotels.
