Havering Campus

Close to campus we offer private, university-checked and affordable housing

LSBU does not have its own halls of residence accommodation on our Havering campus. Instead, students stay in university-checked, purpose-built accommodation in Romford, Essex at the Swan Housing Association's Union Road development.

Accommodation at this site features standard bedrooms with shared bathrooms, bedrooms with en-suite facilities and studio flats. Standard and en-suite bedrooms are grouped into cluster flats that accommodate two to four residents. Each cluster flat has a fully-equipped kitchen/dining area with a washing machine, dishwasher and TV/DVD.

The site is approximately a 15-minute walk from Romford main-line station. Limited car parking is offered, subject to availability, and there are storage facilities for bicycles. The on-site office and reception area is staffed by the Swan Housing team between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. They handle the development's general management and a contracted security service can be provided outside these hours to deal with emergencies.

Rents currently range from £420.95 per calendar month (pcm) for a standard bedroom; £461.67 pcm for en-suite; and £678.86 pcm for a studio. However, we advise you double check these figures with Swan Housing as they can vary depending on the number of bedrooms in a flat as well as any special offers they may have. Rents include all utilities ie electricity and gas. You will be required to pay a deposit to secure the accommodation and rent can only be paid by direct debit.

Tenants are required to commit to a six-month shorthold tenancy agreement, which can then be renewed for a further six months. Download our sample tenancy agreement (PDF File 3,008 KB) for further information.
