The South Bank is a famous area of London that runs along one side of the iconic River Thames, taking in many top attractions such as Tower Bridge, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and the Tate Modern.

It affords excellent views of the City and Westminster too, but most importantly for students arriving in London for the first time, it also provides first class student residences.

Pure Bankside offers the most stylish, modern university accommodation on the South Bank, ideal for students attending central London institutions, including Birkbeck College, Imperial College London and the prestigious London School of Economics.

The South Bank also boasts excellent transport links, with Waterloo and London Bridge stations close by and plenty of London Underground access to the West End, Covent Garden and other popular locations.

Of course, if the weather is fine there are few better ways to spend a day in London than with a stroll along the river, and you will never be stuck for things to do during your free time.

What to expect from your accommodation

Pure Student Living provides the highest quality university halls across London for its residents, and all your water, electricity and internet bills included in your rent for added convenience.

As well as our halls in Bankside, there are also properties in Hammersmith and Highbury for students who would prefer to stay in those areas. Whichever you choose, you are guaranteed the same superb standard of accommodation, with rooms ranging from comfortable studios to study rooms with shared lounge and kitchen areas.

Residents enjoy plenty of communal meeting places where they can relax with friends, while there is also a laundry room, bike store, gymnasium and post service on site.

Booking and paying for your room

If you'd like to spend your studies staying in our university accommodation on the South Bank, booking your room couldn't be easier. All you need to do is provide us with your email address and academic year, then choose from the list of rooms available.

Your selection is secured with a £400 deposit, which is returned when you leave the property. You then have the choice of paying all your rent for the year at once, or splitting your payments into three – one before you arrive, one in January and a final instalment in April.

Our staff are happy to welcome prospective residents and their families to Pure Bankside for viewings if you'd prefer to have a look round before booking, while we can be contacted by phone or email if you have a quick question you'd like us to answer.
