University College London accommodation
University College London boasts some pretty impressive statistics, having recently been ranked among the top 30 institutions in the world for the first time. Our student accommodation in London places you right in the heart of central London and just down the road from the University itself.
University College London (UCL) can boast some pretty impressive statistics. For example, they were the first British University to be truly secular when they opened in 1826, meaning that unlike others at the time, they didn’t discriminate based on religion. By 1878, they were even including women – and although that is thankfully the norm these days, they were the first University in England to do so.
In terms of diversity, UCL is still going strong. Students attend from all over 150 countries all over the world and there are initiatives to send their students on study abroad programmes, too. They truly deserve their informal title of ‘London’s Global University’ because they remain so inclusive to this day.
The University’s reputation is one of the best in the whole of the UK, if not the entire world. It sits in first place in the rankings in terms of research strength in the UK, and it’s currently ranked joint fifth in the world's top ten universities by the QS World University Rankings. The University is also a member of the prestigious Russell Group of universities as well as forming part of the so-called ‘Golden Triangle’ of the very best universities in Britain. Almost 30 Nobel Prize winners have been alumni or staff of University College London.
When you stay at our UCL accommodation, you’ll be right in the heart of central London and just down the road from the University itself – so you’ll be truly integrated both with student life and the fascinating culture of London, one of the most exciting cities in the world.
As you might imagine, a top University like the University College London has top facilities on its campus, too. The campus itself is located in Central London.
The UCL Library is world-class, housing over 35,000 journals and collections available online and in print. There are 16 specialist libraries available to you, many hosting historical texts and each one providing invaluable resources and computers for your studies, open 24 hours per day. You’ll also benefit from museums, collections and even the fantastic UCL Centre for Languages & International Education (CLIE) so that you can learn languages to fit the Global ethos of the institution.
When it comes to leisure time, you’ve got an abundance of things to do without having to leave the University. There are theatres, concert venues, and so much more that it would be impossible to mention everything! You’ve also got three great bars at the Student Union as well as plenty of societies to join.
Sports fanatics are in luck with Sport Centres, Sports Halls, Sports Grounds, an Olympic sized swimming pool and plenty more facilities located all around campus.
Of course, on campus you can also receive pastoral care, health treatment, financial advice, careers information as well as support with disabilities and places to privately meditate or pray.
Our accommodation at University College London is super-centrally located and close to these great campus facilities so you won’t feel isolated from the incredible experience that this one-of-a-kind University has to offer.
You’re about to embark on a degree course at one of the best places to study in the world – no pressure there then! To have achieved a place at University College London in the first place, we’re sure you’re up to the challenge. There are an abundance of courses across a plethora of fields, and UCL will push you to achieve your potential in a way that will be both stimulating and rewarding.
UCL has almost 1000 professors and more than 6,000 academic and research staff who are dedicated to research and teaching of the highest standards. University College London also prides itself on the fact that they have the second highest number of expert staff teaching there, which means the student-to-staff ratio is fantastic.
UCL offers a range of real-world experience to its students to really prepare them for their future. If you’re a Medical student this is especially good news; the University is associated with most of the major hospitals across London, so you’ll be learning from some of the best doctors in the country.
Overall, when you attend UCL you’re setting yourself up for life! The University is ranked in the UK’s top 10 based on employment prospects and starting salaries for graduates are much higher than the national average.
Thankfully, our University College London accommodation is right on the doorstep of UCL so you’ll always make it to lectures and practical sessions bang on time to really make the most of it.
UCL students are in excellent hands with huge amounts of funding being placed into research programmes in addition to outstanding provisions making it the top place in the country to undertake a postgraduate research based degree.
Of course, you can also undertake a taught degree as well, where you will be taught by some of the leading experts in your field. Currently, University College London has over 6000 academic and research staff and almost 1000 professors – the second highest figures in the country.
A postgraduate degree is a great step towards success and can help you understand your area of interest in much more depth. Postgraduates will be supported as well as challenged, and given access to a wealth of great opportunities to help you in your journey as well as your future career.
The UCL accommodation we provide will allow you to focus on this important time in your academic life with plenty of other like-minded students.

Liberty Living operates in accordance with the National Code of Standards for student accommodation. The Code of Standards is run by ANUK (The Accreditation Network UK), the NUS, and Unipol Student Homes, and is supported by universities across the UK.
Liberty Living joined the Code of Standards to give our students peace of mind. You can be assured that you will enjoy a high standard of living in accordance with the Code of Standards, and a prompt resolution to problems should they ever occur when you stay at any of Liberty Living’s residences.
Liberty Living follow a distinct set of standards for our student accommodation, called the ANUK/Unipol National Codes. The purpose of these Codes, (membership of which is voluntary), is to provide students with professional housing services.
The standards chosen for the Codes reflect a balance of common sense obligations and responsibilities between landlords and tenants. They also reflect established best practice in the sector and are based on what an average student and their parents would expect of a good quality housing supplier. The standards are supported by the voice of students themselves through the National Union of Students.
What does being a member of the codes mean?
- Both parties can enjoy the benefits of good standards of housing management and practice.
- Misunderstandings and disputes are reduced.
- If problems do occur they can be promptly resolved.
- The independent complaints procedure operated by the Codes can be used for complaint resolution.
