Student accommodation options

LSHTM has no student accommodation available. It does have rooms allocated in University of London (UoL) halls:College Hall, International Hall, Lillian Penson Hall and The Garden Halls.

Here at Goodenough College, we offer accommodation to postgraduate students and have numerous room types available to suit the needs and lifestyles of our Members. Single bedrooms and small flats are available for those individuals looking to stay here and continue to study.

We have double bedrooms, large studio flats and one-bedroom flats that are suitable for couples in The College’s William Goodenough House. The one-bedroom flat comes with separate kitchen and living room space allowing you extra room.

We also cater for students who have their own families and have a number of two and three-bedroom flats to accommodate up to three children. We usually have between 50 and 60 children living in the College community so there will be lots of opportunities for them to make friends too.

Adapted living is also something we have available for Members who need wheelchair friendly accommodation or require extra equipment such as emergency alarms, vibrating alarms and flashing alarms. Any requirements you may need can be discussed with a member of our team.

Goodenough is an educational charity dedicated to bringing together some of the world’s brightest minds in one community.  To achieve that goal it offers a number of Scholarships to help talented students from less privileged backgrounds to afford to live at the College.  Students who have lived at Goodenough see themselves as part of a special community, which is why the College has such a thriving international Alumni community.
