Visitor accommodation in University of London student residences

University of London

The University of London was founded in 1836 and is the second-largest university by number of full-term students in the UK.

During the vacations, the university accommodation offers great value visitor bed and breakfast in Bloomsbury, a leafy area in the heart of London. The area is a short distance from many of the capital’s top visitor attractions including the London Eye, Tower of London, Buckingham Palace and the British Museum. Famous shopping districts are also close by, so those in need of some retail therapy won’t feel hard done by. Links to London’s transport network are just a short walk from all residences.

The Garden Halls

Dubbed the Garden Halls because they overlook Cartwright Gardens, Hughes Parry Hall, Commonwealth Hall and Canterbury Hall have all been recently renovated. The gardens contain tennis courts, which are available for use by guests, as well as a statue of the political reformer John Cartwright. An old student tradition was for this statue to be wrapped in festive paper during the run-up to Christmas, but this had now been discontinued!

College and International Halls

College Hall is the oldest of the two, and was founded in 1882 to provide accommodation for the increasing numbers of female students at the university. International Hall was opened in 1963 – rumour has it that Mick Jagger spent his final year as a student in the hall in this year.

My second stay here. I love it. Really comfortable, convenient room with good broadband. Staff are friendly. Fantastic value. I can't comment on the breakfast, as it's served at 8.30 am and I like to be up and out by 7 am. There are lots of cheap breakfast-to-go options locally, though, and I actually used the kettle in my room to make instant porridge.
Canterbury Hall, Bloomsbury, London

Spotlessly clean room; helpful & friendly Reception & breakfast staff. Booking details indicated check-in possible earlier than 2pm actual time - but Reception happy to store bag. Have stayed here previously, & hope to do so again.

This was my first time in Hughes-Parry, though I have used other Student Residences over many years. The value for money in such a central location is excellent. A small mirror of some kind might be helpful in the rooms. It was very useful to have the internet connection in the room. I'd very happily stay at Hughes-Parry in the future.
