Where you live (and who you live with) is a huge part of the university experience and you should give some thought to what will suit you best. There are on and off-site options and this guide will help you with your decision.

Alban Hall - Heythrop's on-site accommodation

The Alban Hall is on-site and just for Heythrop students. It has 109 single study bedrooms and a twin room. The Hall is divided into flats with bedrooms, shared bathroom facilities, a communal living area and kitchen in each. Internet access and a food catering package are included. Priority is given to Year 1 students.


  • Larger rooms than most residence halls
  • Money and time saved on travel and close proximity Heythrop's facilities
  • A Kensington postcode with a High Street, two parks and Hyde Park within a 15 minute walk

Intercollegiate Halls

Heythrop is allocated a small number of rooms in Intercollegiate Halls every year, generally in Nutford House (Marble Arch/Edgware Road) and the Garden Halls (Bloomsbury). There are single and twin rooms available.


  • Meet, live and socialize with students from the other colleges of the University
  • Live 10 minutes’ walk from Senate House and the University of London Union
  • Experience a different part of the city; live more centrally near areas such as Oxford Street and the West End

Accommodation for years two and three

Most second and third year students rent shared, private-sector accommodation. For some students flat hunting is a daunting idea at first, so many use the University of London Housing Service. This free resource offers housing guides and advice to all students, with the help of a qualified legal team. The Heythrop Accommodation and Campus Services Office and the Heythrop Students’ Union (HSU) can also help with housing queries.

A small number of returning students do reapply for University accommodation, and they can do so each year during February. Please Note: late applicants may be placed in twin rooms; this applies to both the Alban Hall and Intercollegiate Halls.

Car parking on campus is very restricted and students are not eligible to park. Cars can be expensive and impractical when living in the middle of the city and students are advised to consider the necessity of bringing a car to London.

Additional Requirements

If due to a medical condition, disability or other circumstance you require a particular type of room, please contact us and provide documentary evidence from an appropriate professional (GP/Consultant) before 1 July.
