Top Tips when you start your application: help us help you!

  • If you are joining in September, make sure you have selected the right year – 2023/2024
  • Make sure you pick the right agreement length – is it 37 or 48 weeks you need? – check your course details! A simple tip, if you are on a non-health care course you will need a 37 week lease length. For all health care associated courses you will need to select 48 weeks as you arrive earlier and likely to go on placement extending the lease length.
  • In the additional information and preferences section – disclose as much information about yourself (medical, disability, anything relevant to your allocation etc). Please ensure you fill in all the boxes!
  • Remember: You can ask to live with friends but this is not guaranteed.
  • Remember when you accept your offer you will need to pay an advanced rental payment of £300. This is not a deposit as this is taken off you final instalment.
  • Carry out your own affordability test to ensure you have all your finances in order before you sign in to your Licence Agreement.
  • If your course offer is conditional your accommodation application will not be processed until you have met your conditions and accepted the course offer.

The Student Accommodation Code

LSBU is a part of the UUK which protects our students’ rights to safe, high-quality accommodation. This ensures our students get the best out of their time living in our residences. It outlines everything students can expect from our us as well as their responsibilities as tenants. The Code has already raised standards of accommodation at LSBU and underpins our ongoing dedication to our students. We are fully committed to providing safe, comfortable living environments which will help support our students in leading a successful and enjoyable student life.


Our halls are representative of LSBU’s diverse and welcoming community.

The Accommodation Team are committed to ensuring that independent (care experienced and estranged), Refugee and Asylum Seeker Students have the opportunity to reside with us and are able to offer up to 52-week contracts to those students in our halls of residence.

If you have any disability, medical condition or need which may affect the type of accommodation you require, please let us know as soon as possible so we can work with you and talk about adjustments. We invite you to discuss your needs with the University’s Disability and Dyslexia Support to ensure we have it covered.


It’s no secret that our accommodation is pretty much unbeatable on price. We offer places to live far below market price in the capital, and with rents starting from £152 a week, you won’t have to worry about next month’s rent, so you can get on with living.

To make sure you have your finances in hand, it’s worth carry out your own affordability checks and budgetary planning, just so you minimise any risk of financial hardship.
