When you decide to move somewhere, the main thing you look for is a place to stay. Being homeless is definitely not ideal. London offers so many student accommodations for both new students and students carrying on in to other years. With most of the student accommodation contracts lasting up to a year, they're always constantly on the look out for new residents, however, places do tend to fill up quickly. As a second year student, I have had my fair share of house hunting and it is definitely not easy when you are on a budget or when you leave it till last minute. I have visited so many accommodations and have made a list of the ones that I liked and had the pleasure to live in.
