Undergraduate halls of residence Tufnell House


This residence is offered to City, University of London first year undergraduate students by iQ Student Accommodation, a third party housing provider. Students who are offered accommodation at Tufnell House will sign an agreement with iQ Student Accommodation and not with City, University of London, and will therefore be bound by iQ Student Accommodation's Terms & Conditions of residence.

Please note that this residence is not available via the reduced nomination price for the academic year 2017/18.  If you do wish to stay here in 2017/18, you can still book directly with the Hall of Residence, but City will not be allocating students here.  Due to City joining with the University of London, we are currently in negotiations for alternative housing which is located closer to our University.

City, University of London recognises that the cost of living and studying in London can be high. In order to make studying at City affordable and accessible to all our undergraduate students, City has introduced an accommodation subsidy to reduce the cost of its undergraduate halls of residence. The subsidised prices listed above will be available from September 2016.

*Please be aware that the prices we offer are artificially low due to the subsidy, rents on the private market are likely to be £50 to £75 higher per week. For more information on private housing please refer to the University of London’s Housing Guide.
