    Our halls of residence

    There are many benefits to living in halls of residence. You can meet new people, live independently and begin your university experience.

    You can be assured that your safety and security is our number one priority. Our halls have 24-hour reception and security teams so there's always someone around to help. The team will also fix maintenance problems quickly with no hassle.

    And did we mention that we guarantee accommodation in halls for all full-time first year students?

    • Private rented accommodation

    Gain your independence

    Private rented accommodation is a popular option as you’ll get to be bit more independent than in a hall of residence, and you’ll have the chance to explore areas outside campus.

    Advice from our team

    Watch our Facebook Live video as current student Petrana chats to Lisette from our Accommodation team about private rented accommodation for students.

    • Private halls of residence

    London has a whole range of private halls of residence available for all students. Developed to meet the high demand for accommodation in the capital, you can get your independence while also socialising with students from other universities.

    The halls are managed independently and vary from luxurious en-suite studios to simpler dormitory-style hostels, depending on your budget.

    Use the tool to search for available halls of residence across London and check our full list on Middlesexstudentpad.

      • Can I park at halls?

        Parking is available at a small cost at Writtle House and Platt Hall and free of charge at Ivy Hall. Parking enforcements are in place at Writtle House, Platt hall and Usher Hall.

      • Can my family and friends stay in a hall/my room when they come and visit?

        You can have a guest stay one night in the week and one night on the weekend. If you would like a guest to stay longer, you must go to your Hall Office to fill out an extended stay form. Please remember, you are responsible by your guest and must be with them at all times.

      • TV licence

        A TV licence is needed if you are watching or recording television programmes at the same time as they are being shown on TV. If you live in halls of residence and use a device (desktop, laptop, tablet, mobile phone) to watch or record TV in your room, you will need a separate TV licence.
