Living and studying in London is an experience like no other and Downing Students range of student accommodation in Zone One and Zone Two offers a convenient central base to explore this cosmopolitan capital city.

With over 100,000 students from around 200 different countries coming to London each year to study, it’s no surprise student life in the capital is diverse, eclectic and vibrant. And with London’s many airports and train links, visiting home during the holidays is made easy for you.

At our brand new accommodation Holbrook you can choose from a range of studios or shared apartments so there’s something to suit every life style and budget.  We are proud to be participating in the Government’s Affordable Student Housing Plan and have a limited number of affordable rooms available to students on the maximum maintenance loan.

The Lyra is an example of London studio apartments at its best, taking modern, urban living and transforming it into a relaxing space to study and call your home.

Both student halls are located next to North Acton Tube Station just 20 minutes away from all the action and buzz of Oxford Circus plus thanks to London’s fast tube system and extensive transport networks you’ll be within easy reach of your university – no matter which of the 45 you choose to study at!

Or if you are studying at King’s College, Atlas offers nominated London apartments to its students, which are located close to Vauxhall Tube Station and features a roof terrace, gym, and a 32nd floor roof garden overlooking London’s impressive skyline.

Pound Field is the latest addition and has a fantastic location in Zone One and is just a short walk to Lambeth Road tube station.

Our competitive prices give you some of the best student flats inside zones 1 and 2, providing comfortable living spaces in the heart of this lively city, while at the same time giving you the peace and quiet you need to study and chill out.
