A diverse campus
Undergraduates benefit from a vast community of students, all centered around a central London campus and a shared interest in global issues. SOAS is a place for people who wish to gain a more profound understanding of the world and examine their own assumptions and beliefs.

For students pursuing a non language-related subject, the Language Entitlement Program (LEP) offers free training in a number of languages.

Accommodation
SOAS students can choose between living in student halls and privately rented housing.
 
Halls include Dinwiddy House, a self-catered, mixed residence which is situated a 20-minute walk from the SOAS campus. Students here live in en-suite bedrooms clustered around a kitchen space shared by four-eight people.

Urbanest St Pancras on the Regent’s Canal in vibrant King’s Cross, is a 25-minute walk from campus, and a great location for students interested in London’s arts, food scene and nightlife due to its central location and proximity to vibrant neighbourhoods like Camden Town, Islington and Angel.
