Our range of student residences provide a safe and convenient home away from home
London South Bank University (LSBU) has four halls of residence, giving students a safe and comfortable base. The furthest away from our Southwark campus is a 10-minute walk away from all its amenities, leaving students always feeling close to home.
Residences have good public transport connections, whether travelling by bus, train or London Underground. Read more on our Location page. The campus is surrounded by many of London's key attractions and the Elephant and Castle shopping centre offers retail and banking opportunities.
The University has 1,396 single self-contained study/bedrooms spread across four residential buildings. Our single occupancy, self-catered rooms feature a:
- choice of en-suite or standard rooms
- all rooms come with Wi-Fi to access the internet and University network
- on-site laundry facilities
- on-site management teams and on-call staff for emergencies if assistance is needed
All rooms are non-smoking, have Wi-Fi internet connection and access to kitchen facilities so students can be self-catered. Flats accommodate between two and nine residents depending on the building.
First year accommodation
We guarantee accommodation for first years who apply to the Accommodation Office by 31 May (subject to LSBU’s allocation policy).
International students attending the University for the first time are guaranteed accommodation if they meet the allocation criteria and apply to our Accommodation Office by 1 August.
For students who apply after these dates, priority for rooms is given to first year undergraduate and postgraduate students attending the University for the first time and who live furthest away from our London campus. If you hold a conditional offer with LSBU you may be required to wait until late August/September before we are able to process your application. The Accommodation Service will contact you if this is the case.
The Accommodation Service:
- processes applications to live in London South Bank University's halls of residence, allocates and offers places
- provides an information and advice service about alternative accommodation options
They cannot offer any legal advice but are your first point of call for basic information and assistance.
- The Accommodation Service has received a ServiceMark accreditation from the Institute of Customer Service, in recognition of its excellent customer service provision for students.
