“Finding somewhere to live in London was far less stressful than I imagined. The Courtauld was on hand to help from the moment I received an offer.”
Students who have firmly accepted an offer for a course at least one academic year in duration will receive an application form for the accommodation we offer, as well as information about external organisations.
Allocations are determined primarily by distance and prior study in the UK, with international and first year BA students given priority. We are able to house 64 students in our own halls of residence Duchy House, located on the Strand just 50 metres from Somerset House. Additionally, a small number of rooms are available at the University of London Intercollegiate Halls, most of which are located in Bloomsbury, approximately 20 minutes’ walk from Somerset House.
The following options are not run by The Courtauld or the University of London, but we recommend them to students studying with us.
Students wanting family accommodation should submit a separate application directly to the University of London Intercollegiate Halls, as a small number of family rooms are available.
