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.

 

Imperial College offers visitors the ability to book summer accommodation in their rooms located across South West London and is a great cheap alternative to a hotel. The main campus is in South Kensington, London. The university’s student halls and residences are bookable during the summer months and provide both self-catered and B&B accommodation for visitors in convenient locations at affordable prices.

South Kensington

Beit Hall and Prince’s Gardens are both situated in South Kensington, a region of London full of old-world buildings with attractive leafy squares tucked between them. The Victoria and Albert Museum, Natural History Museum and Science Museum can all be found here, or for those who require a little retail therapy, without the crowds of the West End, Kensington High Street is a must. The halls themselves offer something for everyone. Beit Hall is one of Imperial’s oldest and most historic buildings, and to contrast, Prince’s Gardens were rebuilt in the early 00’s and surround London’s only privately owned square. Guests of both halls are welcome to enjoy this landscaped garden, something many London hotels can’t offer.

Notting Hill

Notting Hill is home to Pembridge Hall, a stunning period Victorian building which still retains many of it’s original features. The idyllic streets surrounding boast a buzzing café culture and it is easy to understand why so many film makers see the area for it’s cinematic qualities. Home to the famous Portobello Road Market, a delight for any bargain seeker, this area of London is popular with all visitors to the city.

Chelsea

Imperial College’s hall, Evelyn Gardens, is located in one of London’s most desirable neighbourhoods, and boasts idyllic gardens which provide a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life. The hall is a short walk from the King’s Road, which is full of designer boutiques, exclusive clubs and swanky bars.

History of London

The first major settlement was founded by the Romans in 43 AD as Londinium, following the Roman conquest of Britain. Following a storming by the Iceni tribe led by Queen Boudica in 61AD, the city was rebuilt and prospered, superceding Colchester as the capital of the Roman province of Britannia in 100 AD. At its height in the 2nd century, Roman London had a population of around 60,000.

By the 600s, the Anglo-Saxons had created a new settlement called Lundenwic, approximately 900 metres upstream from the old Roman city, around what is now Covent Garden. It is likely that there was a harbour at the mouth of the River Fleet for fishing and trading, and this trading grew until the city was overcome by the Vikings and forced to relocate back to the location of the Roman Londinium to use its walls for protection. The original Saxon city of Lundenwic became Ealdwic ("old city"), a name surviving to the present day as Aldwych, which is in the modern City of Westminster.

Plague caused extensive problems for London in the early 17th century, culminating in the Great Plague in 1665-1666 that killed around 100,000 people, up to a fifth of London's population. This was the last major outbreak in England, possibly thanks to the disastrous fire of 1666. The Great Fire of London broke out in the original City and quickly swept through London's wooden buildings, destroying large swathes of the city. Rebuilding took over ten years, largely under the direction of a Commission appointed by King Charles II, chaired by Sir Christopher Wren.

Much of London was then destroyed during the bombing campaign of World War II, which saw 30,000 people lose their lives. Despite causing a great deal of damage, the city was generally well patched up and much of the worst of 1940s and 1950s architecture has been replaced by more modern and tasteful buildings.

In the 18th century, Samuel Johnson, author of A Dictionary of the English Language, famously wrote about the city: "You find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford".

History of London's Universities

University College London

UCL was founded in 1826 and is the third oldest English university, and the first university institution to be founded in London. This was the first British university to admit students regardless of their religion and gender. At that time, the only universities in England were those at Oxford and Cambridge, which were restricted to members of the Church of England. It introduced new subjects which had not previously been taught in English universities, for instance modern foreign languages, English language and literature as well as engineering and architecture.

The University of London

The University of London was first established by a Royal Charter in 1836, which brought together in federation London University (now University College London) and King's College (now King's College London). Today the University is a federal university made up of 31 affiliates: 19 separate university institutions and 12 research institutes. As such, the University of London is the largest university in the UK by number of full-time students, with over 135,000 campus-based students.

Queen Mary, University of London

Queen Mary has its roots in four historic colleges: Queen Mary College, Westfield College, St Bartholomew's Hospital Medical College and the London Hospital Medical College. The Mile End campus is historically the home of Queen Mary College, which began life in 1887 as the People's Palace, a philanthropic endeavour to provide east Londoners with education and social activities. It was admitted to the University of London in 1915.

Westminster University

Westminster University is located in the district of Marylebone is named from St Mary's, the local church, which was built on the banks of a small stream or bourne called the Ty bourne. The church and the surrounding area later became known as St Mary le bourne and, over time, as Marylebone.

Goodenough College

The College was founded in 1930 as a residential college for students from The Dominions. Its aim was to improve international tolerance and understanding amongst people on the brink of their careers by providing a forum in which they could interact. The College has expanded greatly since that time and now consists of a community of 650 postgraduate students from over ninety countries.

Imperial College

Founded in 1907 and consistently rated amongst the world's best universities, Imperial College London is a science-based institution with a reputation for excellence in teaching and research.

Goldsmiths

Based in New Cross, Goldsmiths specialises in the teaching and research of creative, cultural and cognitive disciplines. The institution was founded in 1891 as Goldsmiths' Technical and Recreative Institute by the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths. It was acquired by the University of London in 1904 and was renamed Goldsmiths' College.

The Courtauld Institute of Art

Founded in 1932 through the philanthropic efforts of the industrialist and art collector Samuel Courtauld, the diplomat and collector Lord Lee of Fareham, and the art historian Sir Robert Witt, this self-governing college of the University of London specialises in the study of the history of art.
