When you first arrive in London, you will want to get your accommodation organized as quickly as possible. It is common for students to stay in temporary accommodation while they search for something more permanent. Dependent upon your budget, the following options are available:
Hostels are a great way to meet new people and make friends as soon as you arrive in London. Hostels are much cheaper than hotels and in some cases charge as little as £15 a night for a bed, especially if you are prepared to share rooms and facilities with other guests. Although you are sharing a room with others, most Hostels will have facilities where you can lock away all of your valuables like your passport, laptop, travelers checks, and anything else for safe keeping. Hostel facilities will normally have wireless internet, communal lounges, shared kitchen facilities, and a bar.
