Please bring your student ID or offer letter (on paper on on your smartphone/device) to gain entry.

Do I need to attend both days?
You're free to attend both if you like! Both days will follow the same format, so you don't have to attend both.

Will you provide me with accommodation?
No. This event is for you to meet other students who are also looking for somewhere to live, in a relaxed and friendly environment. We'll be on hand to give lots of guidance on how to look for somewhere to live.

I won't know anyone beforehand/I'm nervous meeting new people.
Don't worry! Everyone else will be in the same situation. We'll be running icebreakers to help you get to know one another. We don't force anyone to participate unless they want to.

Who comes to the event?
It's a mixture of undergraduates and postgraduates from all of the colleges we work with. 

I want to live in South East London, but the event's held in Central London. Will there be other students looking in the same area as me?
Yes! Students at the event will be looking to live in all different parts of London. We'll help you find others who are looking in the same area as you.
