NCL University Accommodation
Going to university is an exciting and nerve-wracking time, especially if you are moving to a new city.

Urbanest provides some of the finest student accommodation in London with a huge range of amenities and luxury facilities to make sure that you don’t have to worry about safety or comfort while in London.
urbanest Tower Bridge
Urbanest Tower Bridge is the closest urbanest location to NCL, at just 0.5 miles from the Newcastle University London campus, making it a great option for NCL accommodation. This allows you to get to lectures with just a 10-minute bus ride or a quick 12-minute walk. On top of its convenient location for NCL students, it is also one of our most central properties, surrounded by London’s most historic monuments. As such, you’re never short on things to do when it comes to Tower Bridge student life.
urbanest Tower Bridge room types
Urbanest Tower Bridge has four different room types available for NCL student housing, all of which have a full range of luxury amenities such as underfloor heating and memory foam mattresses. So no matter which you choose, comfort is a high priority.
Our private and en-suite flats are available in groups of 5, 6, or 9 people. These are perfect for students who are looking to socialise and make new friends and provide a great first-year experience for undergraduates who are new to London. Every room comes with wifi and a desk, so you have your own private space to study and relax. The private rooms are the most affordable option, but that doesn’t mean there’s any compromise on the high quality of your stay with urbanest.
For those looking for more privacy, our studio apartments are a popular Newcastle University London student accommodation for postgraduates and mature students. We have accessible flats available, so please get in touch with our team to make sure your needs are met.
urbanest Tower Bridge facilities
Like all of the urbanest locations, Tower Bridge is a fantastic choice for student housing as it has a huge number of high-end facilities that will make student life that much easier. As mentioned, every room has underfloor heating and a high-quality mattress for comfort, so you don’t have to worry about the cold London winters! There’s also a laundry room on-site, which means you don’t have to live the building to get your errands done.
Wifi is free throughout the building and Tower Bridge has a dedicated study space that has both communal and private areas, so whether you have a group project or need to focus – this is the place for you. When you’re ready for some social time, there is a state-of-the-art cinema room for movie night and beautiful outside spaces for those sunny days.
Your safety is one of our top priorities. There is CCTV throughout the building and a 24/7 on-site support team who are there to help you through any issues or queries that you might have. While it can be daunting to make a big move, urbanest are experts in student accommodation and we have plenty of experience in anticipating your needs.
Benefits of Tower Bridge
As well as being a luxurious place to live, urbanest Tower Bridge is in one of the most enviable locations in London. NCL students staying here will be just minutes from campus and the heart of London. It’s a short walk to the river Thames and Tower Bridge itself, which brings you to the London Bridge area. From here you can go to the famous Borough Market, visit the Shard, and see a play at Shakespeare’s Globe theatre.
In the opposite direction, you have the City of London and places like Spitalfields Market, where you can find all kinds of food, jewellery, and clothing stalls. While it’s easily walkable, you can jump on the tube at Tower Hill to Liverpool Street, where you can also get connections to East London, Essex, Stanstead Airport, and more underground lines. For students and those who are new to London, living in Tower Bridge is truly one of the best ways to get to know the city and explore everything that London has to offer without much difficulty.
We highly recommend taking advantage of the free-to-use bicycles on-site and using them to get around the city quickly while seeing the sights!
Urbanest Hoxton is also in central London, a little further north. This property is based in one of the city’s most vibrant areas, full of galleries, markets, quirky shops, and gardens for you to enjoy on a weekend. As well as a plethora of things to do, urbanest Hoxton is just 1.3 miles from the NCL London campus. This equates to just a 25-minute walk, a 16-minute bus ride, or 20 minutes via the tube, making it a great Newcastle University London student housing choice.
urbanest Hoxton Room Types
Urbanest Hoxton is a great student accommodation choice for undergraduates and postgraduates as we have room options to cater for all expectations and needs.
Some people don’t like student halls because they don’t want to give up their private space; if that’s you, our studio apartments are the perfect student housing option. Spacious and completely private, you have your own bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, and living area, so you can live at your own pace. This is one of the highest quality student accommodations in London and will provide NCL students with a super comfortable place to live and study. Staying in a studio doesn’t mean you’ll be isolated – there are plenty of social spaces in the rest of the building where you can meet people.
For a more affordable option, you can book one of our private rooms, which is in a two-person flat. This is great for keeping costs down or if you are planning to move to London with someone you already know.
For those who are looking for more socialisation, our en-suite rooms are in 6-person flats. Your room is lockable and has its own private shower room and a desk, so you have your own space to relax and study when you want to. However, you will share your kitchen and living area with your flatmates, so there are plenty of opportunities to get to know each other and form great friendships.
urbanest Hoxton Facilities
Hoxton is one of the most impressive luxury student accommodation choices in London, making it perfect for NCL students to get the best from their time at university. As well as the high-end flats available, the building has loads of amenities that make it the top choice for your 2022/23 academic year. Every urbanest location has an electronic fob entry system, CCTV throughout, and a dedicated team who are on call 24/7 to help you with any issues.
There is free wifi throughout, which means you can connect and study anywhere. If you need to get out of your room, then there are fantastic study spaces for group and solo work. Don’t worry about finding outside facilities for your laundry or gym, we have these onsite, so on busy days, you can still fit in getting your errands done or putting in time for a workout.
When you want to socialise and unwind, visit the on-site café for an afternoon coffee or an evening drink with your new friends. On the 7th floor, you’ll find a beautiful roof terrace that has panoramic views of the city – perfect for enjoying on a summer’s day. Our social space also has a flat-screen TV and loads of social seating, so turn up some music and get the party going with your urbanest flatmates.
Benefits of Hoxton
As mentioned, Hoxton is further east and brings you closer to the arty east London locations like Shoreditch, Dalston, and Hackney. This makes Hoxton the perfect base for students who want to be close to bars, music venues, and independent shops, while still enjoying a central location near to the Newcastle University London campus. Enjoy green spaces like Hoxton Square or Ravenscroft Park, which is next to Colombia Road Flower Market – a must-visit for everyone. For something slightly different, urbanest Hoxton is just 20-minutes walking or by bus from Hackney City Farm to pay a visit to the farm animals or even volunteer!
Just a few minutes walk (or cycle using the free bikes available at the accommodation), you can get the tube from Old Street and easily connect to the rest of central London for places like the British Museum, Buckingham Palace, and Oxford Circus. Since the underground runs until late at night and buses are 24/7, you’ll always be able to get home no matter where you go in London or how late you stay out.
