Student accommodation London
Area guide in London (or where to live in London)
International students in London often ask which are the good areas to live in London and to find student accommodation in. The answer to this question has many variables, such as which university in London do they attend, which zone is more suitable for them, how close is the tube station, how Safe is the area considered, what it the “feeling” of the area, etc.
As for housing and accommodation in London, Expats and students should take into consideration that accommodation in central London is quite expensive, and as such, most students on a budget prefer to live between zones 2 and 4, or they group up with flatmates and find house shares in zone 1 in order to split the cost and enjoy the benefits of living in the heart of the city. In general, the lower rents accommodation spread to the south of the River and in locations in which the main public transportation is by over ground rail or buses (rather than metro).
