Cost of living in London

The elephant in the room…what about the cost of living?

London can be expensive if you’re a tourist!

However, don’t confuse us with North London, which is great to visit with Oxford St, Theatre land, and iconic monuments everywhere you look. However, South London is a place to live, a place to thrive, a place to find opportunity and put down roots for life.

As a student you’ll quickly become a true Londoner and know the hot places to go, best spots around Elephant and Castle and life hacks to make your budget go far. You’ll find student nights across the city, your student card gives you great discounts and many of our neighbours offer regular student deals. So put the pot noodle or meal deals down and treat yourself to some healthier food that won’t break the bank.

Living in halls

If you’re looking for the full campus experience, we offer competitive accommodation prices which are some of the best value in London. Trust us, you’ll struggle to find a better deal in London and there’s very few people that can say that they can see the Shard or the London Eye from their bedroom window.

In fact, our halls can cost far less than you’ll pay if you were to study in other large cities in the UK. Don’t believe us? For accommodation pricing, check out our accommodation pages.

Commuting to campus

If you’re thinking of commuting you’ll qualify for a student travel card which can save you up to 30% on public transport across the city. You’ll also find that National Rail offer a 16-25 and 26-30 railcard which will save you 34% on off-peak travel.
