FAQs about student accommodation in Holborn

Is Holborn a student area?

Holborn is home to the LSE campus, making it a very popular student area every year. With lots of restaurants, pubs and bars nearby, student accommodation in Holborn is highly sought after.

Where do LSE students live?

LSE students tend to live in halls of residence in their first year of university. Following this, they tend to move into private student accommodation near Holborn or the surrounding areas for the rest of their studies.

What zone is Holborn?

Holborn is in Zone 1 on the Central line and the Picadilly line.

Is Holborn safe?

While Holborn has a fairly high crime rate, it’s important to note that this is partially due to its location in central London and the high level of tourist activity. If you take necessary precautions like locking your doors and windows and walking with others at night, you should have no problem living in student houses in Holborn.

Where is Holborn?

Holborn is in central London, covering the southeastern part of the Borough of Camden.

Is Holborn expensive for students?

Holborn student accommodation is more expensive than housing in areas of London that are further away from the centre. However, the area benefits from its close proximity to the LSE and UCL campuses and extremely convenient transport links.

Are bills included in the cost?

Many student houses in Holborn are now advertised with bills included in the price. Where this is the case, your rental price could include electricity, gas, internet, TV licence and water bills and this is clearly stated on the listing. Properties without bills included are also available, giving you the flexibility to choose your own energy and water suppliers and internet service provider.

Do I need to pay a deposit?

It is normal for property managers to require you to pay a security deposit at the time of booking or before you move in. Where a deposit is required and you are signing a tenancy agreement, your property manager must protect your deposit in a legally recognised tenancy deposit scheme. As long as you look after the property and have no deductions for damage or unpaid rent, your deposit will be returned to you after your tenancy agreement ends. Whilst tenancy deposits are legally capped at five weeks' rent per person, it is more common for student deposits to be in the lower £100-250 range.

How long does a tenancy agreement last for?

The majority of student housing in Holborn can be rented for fixed contract lengths. For purpose built student accommodation, 43 and 51-week fixed-term contracts are the most common. For shared houses, 52-week contracts are the most common and generally start in July to September.

Do you offer student accommodation for short-term stays?

Short-term student rentals in Holborn are becoming more popular every year. As a result, property managers are increasingly offering shorter tenancy lengths, whether for the summer period or for individual semesters and terms. This is more common in the purpose-built student accommodation sector than in shared student rental houses across London.
