Save money and stay in empty uni rooms, even if you're not a student.

Visitor accommodation in Goldsmiths student residences


Goldsmiths specialises in the arts, designs, humanities and social sciences and has produced over 20 Turner Prize Nominees. Visitors to London can stay in the university’s student residences during the holidays as the halls open their doors to the public and provide affordable self-catered accommodation. These rooms are the ideal alternative to a cheap London hotel for any budget conscious visitor.

New Cross

Located just a 10 minute train ride from the centre of London, New Cross is home to Loring Hall, Chesterman House and Dean House. This vibrant area of south-east London has a thriving music and arts scene, and has been described by the New York Times as a “hub of creative talent”. It is no surprise that this area is so popular with the creative students of Goldsmiths!


Raymont Hall is situated in Brockley, a district in south London that boasts lots of attractive open spaces. In the 1960’s the area saw an influx of artists and musicians who were attracted by low cost Victorian housing that was available at the time. Cultural footprints were created, and as the area’s popularity has increased, so have the number of musical events and artist exhibits on offer.

No availability?

  • Whilst London university-owned rooms are mainly available when students clear their rooms in the vacation periods including Summer (June, July, August, September) Christmas and Easter, we do also have availability throughout the year in independent student residences
  • Rooms normally become available two to three months in advance, so please revisit the website if nothing is available now, or go to our London Hostels or London B&Bs websites for more accommodation and travel ideas

A very pleasant stay. Gold Smith is a good accomodation to visit London. Staff is professional and kind.
Batavia Mews, New Cross, London

The kitchen was without glasses, cups, soap, cutlery, openers -- i.e., everything except fridge, stove, and micro-wave. I coped, but it seemed a little cheap. The doors need oiling, and they close with a thud, which is potentially disturbing to those asleep. The stairs up to the kitchen sagged and complained when I walked on them. I suggest that a carpenter inspect them. All in all I enjoyed myself at Batavia Mews. The connections to central London were excellent, via New Cross Gate Station. I would come again.
