Luckily, King´s website has several tips that can make your transition easier. For example, finding a place to live can be pretty difficult. Student accommodation or private sector, agency or “find a room” websites, close to the uni or close to a friend´s house, living alone or sharing a flat. The decision to all these options depend on your budget and your life style.
Going to http://www.kcl.ac.uk/campuslife/accom/index.aspx you can find useful information and advices that will help you to make the right decision. For me, the best part is the opportunity to book an appointment with a Housing Adviser from the University of London Housing Services http://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/pg/accom/kings/private/index.aspx to get some advice before signing your contract. It is very important that you are aware of all the terms in your contract, specially if you will rent your place for at least one year.
But the section is not only restricted to accommodation. You can also find links about other important aspects of living in London like transportation, social activities, sports, travel among other things.
So, before you start your amazing journey in this new world, go and check what London has to offer.
