2 - Find accommodation

Feel settled and at home when you study with Imperial. Choose from GradPad’s postgraduate halls, our halls of residence at Silwood Park Campus or private accommodation. If you choose to go private and your course starts in late September, the best time to start looking for a place to live is between June and August.

Use our property search website to find properties and connect with other Imperial students looking for housemates with Imperial Home Solutions.
