London South Bank University Halls

London South Bank University (LSBU) has four halls of residence, giving students a safe and comfortable base. The furthest away from our Southwark campus is a 10-minute walk away from all its amenities, leaving students always feeling close to home.

Residences have good public transport connections, whether travelling by bus, train or London Underground. Read more on our Location page. The campus is surrounded by many of London’s key attractions and the Elephant and Castle shopping centre offers retail and banking opportunities.

The University has 1,396 single self-contained study/bedrooms spread across four residential buildings. Our single occupancy, self-catered rooms feature a:

  • choice of en-suite or standard rooms

  • on-site laundry facilities
  • on-site management teams and on-call staff for emergencies if assistance is needed
