Looking For Student Halls In London

London today has more than 70 different purpose built student accommodation halls that can fulfil any preferences you have from swimming pools and dance studios to penthouse sky lounges and music studios. With student halls being developed now more than ever there is a wide variety of prices, designs, locations, facilities and purpose. One of the greatest features of student halls in London is they are almost all built in very safe locations and ideal spots for students, especially international students seeking to explore London. 

Some universities work with hall providers who give priority to students of their respective university. A good example of this is how the first year-students of the University of Westminster are directed to the Student Court @ Wembley accommodation. So be aware that you might be privileged for a student hall without knowing it. The difference between university halls and private halls is that university halls are slightly cheaper due to the fact that those halls are managed by the university, which is charity and not a profit making company. Besides, university halls are eclusively for students from that specific university, mostly first years students. Several private halls are known for their big amount of students of the same university but this should not be a reason for you to hold back and go for another choice. Hall names like Beaumont Court or The Arcade are known for their variety of students. Depending of the locations, different features and type of room you are looking for, the price will differ. 

There are several very basic things but essential booking information all students should know. The Accreditation Network UK code is another elements a student should be aware of and check if the accommodation they are choosing has this certification. The ANUK code has as purpose to provide housing suppliers and their tenants with a framework of transparent undertakings about how they are going to come to an agreement with one another. Shortly it is an extend to make sure that both parties will be beneficial of the standards and that misunderstandings are reduced. 

Just keep in mind that somewhere in North, East, West or South London there is a private hall suitable for you. Take the time to do your research about an area you like, not too far from your university if you want to keep your travelling reasonable and you will find a good student accommodation. Reviews of other students who lived or are still living in the student accommodation you are interested in may help you as well. Besides all this, never forget to enjoy your student life in London. As they say; If you are tired of London, you are tired of life.
