Students will be staying at Goodenough College residences.
Goodenough College is a relatively modern Oxbridge-style residential college located in Bloomsbury close the London School of Economics and the British Museum. It caters exclusively to graduate students attending one of London’s universities. Each room has its own bed, closet, wash stand, and desk. The bathrooms are shared with other residents on the floor. The floors are gender-segregated. Dining is in a central dining hall and a buttery located in the basement of the residence. Classes will be held in a conference room in another building owned by the college across a garden square from the residences. The college is orientated around a central quadrangle and the only entrance involves passing by a porter’s lodge.
