Student accommodation

Although RAM has no student halls of residence of its own it does have rooms allocated to it, by the University of London (UoL), in the following halls:

Most of the Academy’s allocated places are in Lillian Penson Hall, which is right next to Paddington Station.

As well as the options offered by RAM, Goodenough College is a popular choice for postgraduates who appreciate the cameraderie and amenities on offer when living in a hall.  Goodenough College provides a friendly “home from home” for postgraduate students from all around the world; giving its student Members a cost-effective central London base, opportunities to take part in a huge range of social, and intellectual events and the chance to make friends and contacts from around the globe.

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.
