If you will be living with your partner or family members while you study at City, you may need to be prepared to make special arrangements.
Unfortunately there's no accommodation for couples or families at City - all rooms in our affiliated halls of residence are for single occupancy only.
If you have a family member (or friend) who will also be applying to City, you can request to be placed together in the same hall of residence when you apply for accommodation. We do our best to place family members together, but unfortunately this can't be guaranteed.
The University of London has family housing available in International Hall, which City students can apply for.
International Hall is located near Russell Square, not far from Clerkenwell and City's main site at Northampton Square. Facilities available include:
- Private study areas
- Communal common room area
- Pool tables
- A squash court
- Group activities such as yoga, music and table tennis.
Otherwise we recommend searching for private accommodation.
Recommendations for private accommodation
There are some private student housing providers who provide accommodation in London for couples and families. These have not been viewed or formally approved by City, University of London and you would need to contact these housing providers directly for more information.
If you are looking for private accommodation, you should consider travelling to London by yourself before your studies start to secure somewhere to live, then bringing your family afterwards.
We recommend planning your search in advance for the best chance to find your perfect accommodation.
