Goldsmiths offers a choice of good quality, reasonably priced accommodation, with rents comparable to similar universities in London. We have just over 1,400 places in Goldsmiths accommodation within walking distance of the campus (most less than five minutes away).
The accommodation ranges from self-contained studio flats and converted houses to more traditional halls of residence. Most are single study bedrooms, although we do have a limited number of double and twin studio flats available. All accommodation is self-catered, containing shared kitchens (or private kitchens in studio flats), and all of our halls have the facility to connect to the internet. This ranges from direct room access, wireless common rooms and personal telephone lines (private contracts would be required). Each hall has a good variety of students from different degrees and of different nationalities, giving you the opportunity to mix with a wide range of people. Every hall also has a team of staff nearby, including administrative staff, resident assistants, and security. There will always be someone available to contact day and night.

If you'd prefer to find your own accommodation, we work closely with the University of London housing service to help you find the right place for you. South East London is one of the cheaper areas in the capital for rented accommodation.
At Goldsmiths you'll find almost everything together on one site, so there's a strong campus feel to life here: we're big enough to offer
some fantastic facilities, but not so big that things seem impersonal and unfriendly. The active social scene means that there are lively
events to cater to everyone's tastes - from performances and concerts to exhibitions and shows.
Our fantastic Students' Union offers you the opportunity to get even more involved, through award-winning volunteering placements or working on the student magazine or radio station, for example.
