Short-term accommodation options

Most halls only offer long-term accommodation to students, with contracts from 40 to 51 weeks. However a number of options are available should your stay be shorter:

Accommodation options outside of term time

Over the summer, most halls of residence operate as bed and breakfast accommodation which is available to members of the public. This would be advertised on the organisation's website - please visit Unite and other private halls.

It is possible for full-time students to apply for rooms in University of London Student Homes that become available after the academic year has started and are advertised as open to all University of London students. Through this scheme the University of London offer rooms in shared accommodation. You would become a tenant of the University of London and would be required to have a guarantor. Birkbeck cannot act as a guarantor for this scheme.
