London is an exciting city for students: it offers entertainment, a thriving cultural life, and many of the world’s leading educational institutions are based here.

But at the same time, finding quality accommodation on a student-friendly budget can be tough. If you’re a student and will be moving to London soon, you’ll want to read about the best places to live in London for students.

West London

Shepherd’s Bush:

This area is within easy reach of Westfield Centre (one of the biggest shopping centres in Europe), suits students attending Imperial College, and it’s only a stone’s throw away from Kensington and its nightlife.


Acton is the right choice if you’re a student at the University of West London. The Piccadilly and District lines run through the area, as do Overground trains. And the area’s many parks are great for picnics, socialising, and spending time outdoors too.


Rents here are higher than in Shepherd’s Bush and Acton, but you can save money on transport if you need to travel to central London often.

North London


This area is an icon of British culture and a thriving hub for artists and creative people. Renting in Camden Town may be out of reach for students, but other parts of the borough offer useful transportation links, plenty of amenities, and cheaper rents. If this is what you’re after, you may want to have a look at renting in the streets near Cricklewood Station.


Located between Enfield and Barnet, Southgate may be just right for you if you’re a student at Barnet & Southgate College or Middlesex University. There are plenty of flatshares and student homes in the market at prices well below the London average.

Wood Green:

Connected to central London by tube (Piccadilly Line), Wood Green is known for its cheap eats affordable student accommodation. This area has a bustling high street with discount stores, supermarkets, and cinemas. In short, Wood Green has everything you’ll find in more centrally located parts of the city, and is cheaper!
