Housing

 

Housing

You can expect a 45- to 60-minute commute to your classes and the Derek Jarman Lab (door-to-door); this is the nature of studying in a large city like London!
 
  • Students will live in shared apartments spread across the city
  • There will be up to eight students in each flat, which includes shared bedrooms and bathrooms, an equipped kitchen, living space, and access to laundry facilities, all in a secure building
  • Apartments are as varied as the city itself; no two flats are alike.
  • University of Pittsburgh (not Emory) assigns housing
