Student life

Remarkable journeys start here. Our postgraduate students can enjoy a student life that is tailored to their own tastes. It’s easy to find and immerse yourself in exciting opportunities and experiences, both at the university and across the city.

Applications for College Membership for the 2020-2021 academic year are now open! We also have places for Members wanting to join us in January 2021 - please apply by November.

Within beautiful surroundings in the heart of our vibrant capital city, Goodenough College is home to 700 outstanding postgraduate students and their families, representing around 80 different countries. Members can forge friendships, discover new interests and grow their professional networks, while experiencing everything London has to offer.

You’ll find lots of new and exciting ways to enjoy yourself, keep busy and make friends on campus and in halls. Meanwhile, the cosmopolitan attractions of the UK’s most famous city are never more than a short train or bus ride away.

Our thriving student life is supported by a welcoming campus, full of extra curricular activities. We also offer a solid support structure to ensure all students feel at home.

For information on the restrictions currently in place to protect Members from the pandemic please see our COVID-19 information pages.
