All NYU in London students are required to live in NYUL housing. Housing costs are in addition to tuition and fees. There is no meal plan. Students prepare meals in the apartment kitchens or eat out at the numerous restaurants in the nearby neighborhood. 

For the upcoming academic year, students studying at NYU in London will be offered the following housing options:

  1. Two newly refurbished residences operated by NYU in London
  2. Housing provided for NYU in London by UNITE (not available for Freshman students)

All residences are located in the Bloomsbury area of London, a short walk away from the NYU in London Academic Centre.

All students are required to live in the housing provided. This is a condition of participation / enrolment in the programme.


NYU in London staff will always endeavour to accommodate student  preferences; however, due to space limitations, students may be placed  in any of the housing possibilities offered regardless of preferences.

Enrolled students will complete an online Housing Form, stating any  preferences, prior to arriving in London. Housing allocations will be  sent to each student via their NYU email address at least one week  before the semester begins.

NYU in London managed residences:

NYU in London manages two newly renovated residences - Byron Court and  Guilford Street. Both are approximately 15-20 minutes walk away from the  NYUL academic center in Bedford Square.

Apartments are single-sex. They contain between 2 and 3 bedrooms,  shared by between 4 and 9 students in a combination of twin, triple and  quadruple rooms. There are shared bathroom facilities with at least one  shower (not baths) within each apartment.

Each apartment differs slightly in terms of layout and facilities. Apartments will be cleaned regularly.

Students can prepare meals in the apartment kitchens or eat out at  the numerous restaurants in the nearby neighbourhood. Apartments contain  fully furnished kitchens, with a shared refrigerator / freezer, oven,  stove, kettle and a microwave, as well as dishes, cutlery, pots / pans  and utensils.

Each student will have their own single bed, bureau, desk and chair.  Bed linens are provided (one fitted sheet, a duvet / comforter, a duvet /  comforter cover, a pillow and pillow case per bed). Towels are not  provided.

Wireless Internet in the buildings can be accessed in the apartments  and communal areas. Apartments have both heating and air-conditioning.  Utilities included in the room rate include gas, water, heat and  electric.

All housing facilities and areas, including bedrooms, will be strictly non-smoking.

Bedroom options within shared apartments

  • Standard bedrooms are twins, and triples.
