Support for students

A warm welcome awaits you at your new London home!

We know how important it is for you to feel happy and supported during your studies, and this is one of the founding principles of Lee Abbey London. Clean rooms, excellent facilities, freshly cooked food and space to relax and socialise all contribute to a positive environment. We also have a varied social programme each term that includes quiz nights, themed evenings and trips to iconic places in London.

We can offer financial support to students in certain circumstances:

Residential Scholarship

Lee Abbey is able to offer either free or reduced-price accommodation to a limited number of students either for one term or one academic year, depending on students’ needs and the funds we have available.

Hardship Fund

The Lee Abbey Hardship Fund exists primarily to help any full-time student experiencing financial difficulty who has been a resident at Lee Abbey for at least one academic year and is still booked in for at least one more full term.

When things get rough, our Pastoral Coordinator, senior staff and our community members will be more than happy to help and listen to you.


Lee Abbey is a Church of England (Anglican) foundation and is staffed by a community whose members are drawn from many Christian traditions. They include Anglicans, Baptists, Copts, Presbyterians, Pentecostals, Roman Catholics, Lutherans and members of other Protestant denominations.

Prayer is essential to Christian life and our community prays together every day. We pray for our residents regularly and welcome opportunities to pray with or for them. Our community has a time of morning worship and prayer from Monday to Saturday in our chapel space and has communion on alternate Wednesday evenings. Residents are welcome to attend and participate in these acts of worship.

We accept residents and guests of all religious faiths and none, and we encourage them to continue to practise their religion while they are with us. London is a multi-cultural and multi-faith city and you are never very far from a place of worship.
