John Adams Hall and Annexes

When coming to stay in a major city like London, its vital that you have a affordable place to live where you feel comfortable and safe.

The IOE Halls of Residence accommodation is about convenience, community and not having to take a bus to lectures in the morning or to go home at night. All of the residences are located 5 minutes walk from the main building, Bedford way and the IOE's Newsam Library-The most comprehensive education library in Europe.

The Institute of Education has over 230 bed spaces for our full time postgraduate students.

John Adams Hall, Woburn  & Gordon Square and  the recently refurbished 9-11 Endsleigh Gardens have a combination of flats, studios, single rooms and en-suite rooms.
