KCL Student Accommodation
There's not much more prestigious than King’s College London. Not only is it one of the oldest universities in England, as it was founded in 1829, but the university is a founding college as well as a member institution of the University of London and a public research university. It's no wonder so many students seek out KCL residence nearby to keep close to such a legacy, but when it comes to which campus there's some choice to consider.
King’s College London is comprised of five campuses in various locations in London. The Waterloo, Strand and St. Thomas campuses are located in proximity to one another, on either side of the River Thames. Guy’s campus is close to North London’s Shard and Denmark Hill is a part of the London Borough of Southwark. On top of that, the university is divided in nine academic faculties.
This means that The Stay Club’s locations in Camden and Kentish Town provide great options for KCL accommodation, making it easier to keep up with everything that unfolds in a busy uni student's day. Stay close to campus all year with KCL summer accommodation at both of our locations, so no need to worry about moving out at the end of term.
When it comes to famous names borne from KCL, the university’s alumni list includes many renowned personalities with notable work, such as Florence Nightingale and John Keats, while twelve alumni of King’s College London have been awarded the Nobel Prize.

King's College London Accommodation in Camden Town
The Stay Club Camden is located at the heart of one of London’s most artistic and culturally
infused areas, opposite Camden Market. There's a lot to explore, and a lot to learn, about this cultural hub. So much, so, there's likely more than 10 facts about Camden you didn't even know! Plus, it is a very convenient KCL accommodation, as there is a bus station outside The Stay Club Camden’s entrance that stops outside of the Strand Campus, as well as close by the Waterloo Campus. This means if you're down to study humanities, law, science or mathematics, our Camden location makes a very good home base.
In terms of tube access, two Northern Line stops are a few minutes on foot from the accommodation. These are convenient for the campuses mentioned, as well as Guy’s campus in London Bridge, and perfect for those life sciences and medicine students!

I've stayed in both the Camden and Kentish Town Stay Clubs for two years in total and, (…), I can honestly say that there is no better place to stay. The stay club didn't just help me to make new friends after moving to a new city but also provided a space that made it feel like home. The installations and common areas are amazing and the staff working in reception is always willing to help you with any issues that might arise during your stay. I've only got a few more months left before I move back to Spain but I'm taking all the unforgettable and unbeatable experiences, memories and friends with me!
