As a visiting student at SOAS you will be living in Dinwiddy House, centrally located between King’s Cross and Angel stations in Zone 1. Dinwiddy House is self-catered, meaning you will prepare your own meals. Each apartment houses 4 - 8 students, with every student having a single ensuite room and sharing a communal kitchen. The residence houses primarily undergraduate students. The commute to SOAS main campus is approximately a 20-25 minute walk or 20 minutes by bus or tube. The residence is within walking distance of a variety of restaurants, bars, shops, theatres and cinemas; wander around the canalside eateries in Granary Square or spend an evening at the popular Screen on the Green cinema in Angel.
