                           PRIVATE HOUSING UNIT

The Private Housing Unit advice service is available to all students of the University
of London (with the exception of Queen Mary and Imperial) and the University of the
                                      Arts.

We are usually able to offer a drop-in service but occasionally demand is so high that
     we have to refer people to other advice centres. Please see details below.

The following colleges of the University provide housing advice to their students
directly:

LSE Student Union, KINGS accommodation office, LSHTM welfare advisor, Institute
of Education welfare advisor, UCL Rights and Advice and UOA housing services.
