Looking for accommodation in London whilst studying at the Condé Nast College of Fashion? Although the College does not arrange accommodation on behalf of our students, there are plenty of student accommodation options in London to choose from.

Below is a list of student accommodation providers, serviced apartments and short-term letting companies that may suit you. Though there are other options available, these are the largest providers that usually have availability.

Choosing where to stay whilst studying at CNC is entirely up to you. We do have a list of housing options for students studying in London, but it is always a great idea to make sure you thoroughly research your options and make sure accommodation is in line with your own expectations and comfort levels.

Many students at CNC prefer to opt for private lets. It’s important you consider your commuting distance to the College, as well as the length of your course when deciding on which area to live in. Other things to consider are, of course, your own budget, your familiarity with London and what type of environment is going to suit you as a person and whilst you’re studying.

Another option is to look into shared living arrangements with other students at the College. Upon receiving your deposit payment you will be invited to an online group where you can meet your fellow students and discuss coordinating living arrangements, should you wish to do so. Please note this is only for students on the Vogue Fashion Certificate, Vogue Fashion Foundation Diploma and BA (Hons) Fashion Communication and our MA courses.

The College is near to both Tottenham Court Road and Leicester Square underground stations. Both are on the Northern Line, however, it’s worth noting that it only takes around 15 minutes to walk from Embankment and Charing Cross Stations and around 25 minutes to walk from Waterloo. Of course, there are also many bus routes that service Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Street. We recommend getting an Oyster Card as it’s usually the cheapest option to travel in London. You can also get a Student Oyster Card if you are on a course that is a year or longer in duration.

  • Tottenham Court Road – 5-minute walk
  • Leicester Square – 5-minute walk
  • Covent Garden – 7-minute walk
  • Oxford Street – 12-minute walk

To apply for student accommodation services, you will need to book at least one month in advance to ensure you obtain a room. You will be required to send a copy of your passport, a letter of acceptance on to the course from the College (unconditional acceptance letter) and sometimes a bank statement.

Below are some serviced apartments companies in London that may well suit you during your studies…

If you are enrolling on a long-term course, then you may want to opt for a privately rented apartment or house. The best way to do this is through a reputable estate agency. We would advise anyone taking up a private let to ensure they visit the property in person prior to signing a tenancy agreement to make sure it meets your needs and is in a suitable area for your commute to and from the College.

Estate Agents are privately owned businesses used by landlords to advertise and often manage their properties. Using these agencies is a quick way to find a property to let, although you will likely be charged a fee for finding your accommodation. Be sure to inquire about fees before signing up to an agency.

Below are some popular estate agents but you can also check sites such as Rightmove and Zoopla.
