To indicate your housing preferences, submit them using your Arcadia Passport.
Students participating on the London Now program will be housed in an Arcadia University student residence. Buildings are within walking distance of multiple bus routes and London Underground stations, centrally located in London Transport’s Zone 1. As with most Londoners, you will rely on public transportation and should expect a commute of 45-60 minutes to class.
All buildings have kitchen facilities with cutlery and crockery, as well as coin-operated machines to wash and dry clothes. It’s also worth noting that we’ll provide you with a pillow and a comforter, but you’ll need to supply your own bed linens. Sheets can easily be purchased after you arrive in London, but if you opt to include these in your luggage, it’s worth noting that beds are generally a little narrower and longer than in the United States.
It’s important to understand that beyond satisfying Arcadia University’s housing standards, amenities will vary in each building and from room to room. This is what is unique about living in a city as old and diverse as London!
