Students at Silwood

Finding a place to stay

London has a huge range of privately rented housing, but don’t worry if you don’t know where to start.

Imperial’s Student Hub team can provide advice and support, even before you arrive at the College.

Our accommodation website has lots of advice on searching for private accommodation.

Property search website

To help you navigate London’s choice of properties, we run an online property search website exclusively for Imperial students.

Imperial Home Solutions

This is a great tool for finding rental properties offered by private landlords or other students. Search by type, size of property, price, area and travel time. Then, you can create your own property shortlist.

Imperial Home Solutions can even help you connect with potential flatmates via the messageboard. You will find helpful tools for your search, like a checklist of what to look for when viewing properties and advice on contracts and deposits.

Don't know the different prices for areas of London? The London Rents Map provides a useful overview.
