Accommodation

Finding a place to live in London can be challenging, but our Admissions Team is here to help. Here’s a guide on reasonably priced accommodation options within a 30-minute commute of LFA.

We recommend booking a student residence for the first 4-6 weeks to settle in. Afterward, you might find friends to share a place with and consider private renting.

London Film Academy is in Fulham, Southwest London. Use our postcode, SW6 1QR, on housing search sites to find local accommodation. Nearby areas within a short commute include Hammersmith, Chelsea, Earl’s Court, Parson’s Green, Putney, Battersea, and Wimbledon.

The closest tube station to LFA is Fulham Broadway on the District Line, and we are a 10-minute walk from West Brompton station on the London Overground. Use Google Maps, Citymapper, or Moovit to check travel times.

For short-term lets, Spare Room is your best option, offering affordable rooms with low commitment. You'll share with other renters and can find rooms quickly. Visit their website or use the mobile app. To live with students, use the student accommodation filter.

If you’re ready to commit to a longer-term contract with a group of friends, then there are several student private renting sites you can browse including RightMoveZoopla and OnTheMarket.

Marsh and Parsons also have a dedicated service for relocating international students to their first home in London.

Top tips for first-time renters

For more detailed advice, see the tips below on the financial, legal, and personal aspects of student renting.

  • View the property before signing a contract or sending money. If an in-person viewing isn’t possible, request a virtual tour.

  • Ask questions to avoid hidden costs or surprises. Check out this article for important questions to ask.

  • Ensure an official contract is drawn up to protect your rights. Read it carefully and have someone else review it.

  • Private rentals usually exclude utility bills. Research and budget for these additional costs.

  • Look up reviews of private landlords or estate agencies online. You can usually find these by googling the name of your letting agent or landlord and including the word ‘review’ in your search.
