I want a room! How do I apply? (Student Homes)
The following answer relates to Student Homes properties and not the Intercollegiate Halls of Residence.
If you've found or viewed a property that you'd like to live in let us know! The application process is very simple and all completed online - meaning you don't need to make a trip into our office. There are 3 stages:
- Information collection: Tell us where you’d like to live and we’ll email you a stage one form to complete and return to us.
- Deposit Payment: We’ll send you details about how to make your deposit payment (this is equivalent to an average months’ rent). We’ll send you a draft copy of your tenancy agreement and rent schedule to review before you pay your deposit.
- Paperwork: The final stage – signing your tenancy agreement. Once you’ve made your deposit payment we’ll email you your tenancy agreement to virtually sign online: you should sign this within 48 hours or receiving it.
Please note: students who will require a personal guarantor for their tenancy will be asked to provide details for their guarantor, and their guarantor sent a form to review and sign at stage 2 of the application process. Guarantors are required for students who take rooms in Student Homes properties that are offered to all University of London students, as opposed to a room in a dedicated college property.
