Where to live

London boasts a number of neighbourhoods, each with a different culture, feel and personality. Popular areas close to South Kensington include Knightsbridge, Earl’s Court, Shepherd’s Bush, White City, Fulham, Putney, Clapham Junction and Battersea.

Imperial’s location guide offers useful advice on different areas of London including video summaries, transport links and average rent per week.

I decided to live at Imperial’s White City Campus in West London, where Imperial offers postgraduate student accommodation right on campus. When I started to look for an apartment in London, I wanted to have a studio to myself but also wanted to be close to other students. Living on campus allows me to meet my friends from the Business School but also to make friends from other faculties.
