Support for students

We know that, for students to achieve their goals, they need to feel happy and supported. This is one of the founding principles of Lee Abbey London. Creature comforts such as clean rooms and good facilities with wholesome food and sufficient space to relax can all contribute to a positive environment. We also have a varied social programme for each term that includes trips to places of interest, talent nights and formal meals.

When things get rough, our Pastoral Assistant and senior members of staff can always be relied upon to lend a sympathetic ear.


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.

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.

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.
