As an Arcadia student at King’s College London, you will live in King’s university housing. You’ll settle in and learn to live as a true Londoner. King’s university buildings are peppered across a central London area, so regardless of which residence hall you choose, you should expect a 15-45 minute commute to classes (great for London!). It’s best to be flexible and open-minded regarding where you will live—some housing options are very popular.

When choosing your preferred King's housing options, please keep in mind that availability of specific residences can vary from semester to semester. A supplementary fee may be charged for any of the King's residences. Your Program Manager will inform you which rooms are included in the base-program fee. Please let us know if you have any financial concerns.
