Goodenough College is an independent educational charity situated in one of Bloomsbury’s most beautiful garden squares, Mecklenburgh Square. Approximately 15 minutes on foot from NCH, it provides a safe and supportive community for its postgraduate students from around the world.

Goodenough College is a lot more than just somewhere to live. It offers an extensive programme of extra-curricular events, regular black-tie dinners in the College’s dining hall, and 24 hour library facilities.

Rent starts at £192.19 per week for a single study bedroom and £256.47 per week for an ensuite. They also offer accommodation for couples and families and accessible accommodation.

Postgraduate students interested in living in Goodenough College need to complete an online application saying how they would contribute to the community there. In the same application, you can also apply for an entry scholarship from Goodenough College towards the cost of rent; the deadline to apply for an entry scholarship is the end of June.
