Rated 5/5 (1 person). Log in to rate.

A big congratulation goes out to the Affordable Accommodation Campaign Team, your Student Officers and everyone who supported the campaign for more affordable student housing.

King’s has now launched a scheme that allows 700 students to access accommodation below £155 per week.  This success comes after months of hard work and negotiation by the campaign team.

Jamie Sweeney, your Vice-President for Welfare and Community, said: ‘I am delighted that KCLSU have been able to work with the university in such a constructive way to deliver something which will change the lives of future King's students. I am very proud to have been a central part of this along with the affordable accommodation campaign team who have put in so much work to make this happen.’

The 700 beds will be assigned on a ‘most-in-need’ basis and not the accommodation ballot system. By the 2016-17 academic year, 940 beds will be offered for under £155 per week. Read King’s official statement for more information.

Applications for this scheme open Monday 1 June. If you’ve already submitted your accommodation application, but feel you meet the eligibility criteria, you can log back in and follow the instructions listed.
