London is a large city, so all students can expect to use public transportation (i.e. tube or bus) to move around the city on a daily basis, both getting to school and for social/cultural activities. It is a part of life in London. Generally, it will take students 20-45 minutes to get to school from their housing via public transportation or walking. Housing will be located in Zones 1, 2, or 3 on the tube map.

Students will be housed in student apartments. Most apartments have several single rooms with a shared living room and kitchen. Some have ensuite bathrooms in each bedroom, while others have shared bathrooms. The kitchens are equipped with ovens, stoves, microwaves, and refrigerators. Wireless Internet is provided in all flats. Some studios may be available for an extra fee.

We may place students in a few different student apartment buildings depending on where they are taking classes. We will prioritize having students share an apartment with other API students, but it is possible that API students would share an apartment with non-API students.

Note: Housing between the fall and spring semesters is not included. Meals are not included in these housing options.
