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 Accommodation Office offer useful advice on different areas including video summaries, transport links and average rent per week.

I live in Gradpad. Most imperial post-grads live there, so it usually syncs with exam schedules, hence less noise. And the accommodation is a separate studio for each student, which is even better.
