London Metropolitan University Accommodation

The merger of the University of North London and the London Guildhall University in 2002 created the London Metropolitan University, commonly known as London Met. Welcoming over 10,00 students a year, with six schools spread over two campuses, this fairly young university is a great place to study.

Our student accommodation in London offers two locations within easy reach of the main campus in Islington, where you will also find the students’ union. Our accommodation is also close to the centre of London, so you can be close to your campus and the main sights of the capital too, giving you the best of both worlds.
