Princess Elizabeth House (PEH)

Princess Elizabeth House is located in the city's wealthy residential neighborhood of Highgate, within easy reach of Archway. Whilst being within the city, it benefits from being close to numerous green spaces such as Waterlow Park, Highgate woods and Hampstead Heath. Highgate village and Archway provide plenty of places to shop, eat, and socialize.   

The residence consists of a mix of single and twin bedrooms in shared apartments that vary from 3 to 17 students; there is also a number of single and twin occupancy studio apartments. The commute from Princess Elizabeth House to the Arcadia London Center is roughly 40 minutes by tube. The nearest tube station is Archway, located in Zone 2.

Arcadia University’s priority is to house you in a place that will support your studies and enable you to experience the local culture. Housing is selected by Arcadia University based on these factors, in addition to considering safety, security and cost. For these reasons, Arcadia reserves the right to alter or change housing options at any time.

Important Additional Points

  • Meals are not included, so you will have to budget for groceries and prepare your own meals.
  • Every room is different and unique,  and while Arcadia ensures that all rooms satisfy general standards, there is no way to guarantee uniformity of apartment and room sizes, furnishings, or facilities.
  • Your packing space will be limited, so we recommend not bringing bed linens or towels with you. Basic bedding such as a towel, pillow, pillowcase, bottom sheet, duvet and duvet cover will be provided. If you wish to purchase your own additional bedding or home goods there will be free time during your orientation. Arcadia staff will be able to direct you to local shops.
  • Students with religious or serious health concerns should notify their Program Advisor during the application process and indicate any specific needs on their housing preference form.
  • Arcadia reserves the right to alter or change housing options at any time should circumstances warrant.
  • It will take approximately 40 minutes to commute to the London Center from this residence via public transportation (which is great for London!), so please budget accordingly. Your Program Advisor will send you information and instructions about how to order a Student Oyster Card approximately 3 weeks prior to arrival.
