Living in London
FYSAE students will live in Central London in Arcadia University owned or rented residence halls with other American students who are studying in London. The residence halls are fully furnished and stocked with necessary kitchen utensils and equipment. As there is no meal plan, students will have to purchase and prepare food for themselves.
Students participating in London FYSAE will live like local students and should anticipate a typical city commute of 30-40 minutes to the London Center. Students will also experience this global city through academic and co-curricular excursions throughout London.
