Commercial Assets Portfolio

In 2018, following a College-wide consultation, Provost’s Board approved the Commercial Assets Portfolio (CAP), a new model for booking shared College spaces during the Easter and summer vacation periods.

Prior to CAP, external commercial bookings were available throughout the academic year. Since Easter 2019, Commercial Operations have access to specific shared spaces during Easter and summer vacation periods only.

CAP will be reviewed by Provost’s Board on an annual basis to ensure that the policy evolves with the College’s strategic priorities and the supply and demand of premium shared spaces.



Our portfolio currently consists of 2,200+ bedrooms in five properties across South Kensington and North Acton:

Four of the five properties hold official 4* Campus Accommodation rating from Visit England (with Kemp Porter Buildings expected to be awarded 4* this year) and provide the services and amenities expected within hotels and guest accommodation providers. Our facilities include:

  • 24-hour reception
  • Bed and breakfast available
  • Complimentary toiletries in all rooms
  • Free WiFi
  • Fully equipped cashless laundry facilities
  • Linen and towels available
  • Luggage storage
  • Regular housekeeping and linen change
  • Tea and coffee making facilities
