University accommodation for female students in London

Providing a home away from home

Located on Old Street and in the heart of London Tech City, Ashwell House is within easy reach of most London universities. By combining an atmosphere of serious study with a warm, family environment, we are the ideal place for those who want to make the most of their time as students.

Since 1962, Ashwell has been a home to young women from all over the UK and beyond.

Originally situated in Notting Hill, London, Ashwell moved to its current location in 1990.

The House is member of European University College Association(EUCA),a European network of Collegiate Halls of Residence offering a complete range of activities to provide all-round formation for university students.

Ashwell House follows a distinct set of standards for our student accommodation, called the ANUK/Unipol National Codes. The purpose of these Codes, membership of which is voluntary, is to provide students with professional housing services.

The standards chosen for the Codes reflect a balance of common sense obligations and responsibilities between landlords and tenants. They also reflect established best practice in the sector and are based on what an average student and their parents would expect of a good quality housing supplier. The standards are supported by the voice of students themselves through the National Union of Students.

Whilst Ashwell welcomes students of all creeds and ethnic backgrounds, life in Ashwell is imbued with a Christian ethos, with the pastoral care entrusted to Opus Dei, a Personal Prelature of the Catholic Church.

Ashwell House is a project of Dawliffe Hall Educational Foundation, Charity Reg. No. 278720, Company Registration No. 1450892
