Student Accommodation

  • King’s Venues are having major refurbishment in the summer of 2018 so unfortunately we cannot offer student accommodation opposite the conference as we had originally hoped.
  • Other universities in London offer accommodation and these are very good value as well. There are good options in Marylebone, Bloomsbury and Notting Hill.  The public transport links in London are excellent and travelling to the conference from these locations will be easy.
