Welcome to urbanest King's Cross

Shelly Brindley

As the LSE School Representative at King's Cross I'm here to help with student welfare matters and to provide you with a link to LSE.

If you have financial, personal, health or academic concerns, or are concerned about one of your fellow students, do feel free to contact me at


Situated at the apex of the King's Cross development area, the building is a pleasant 40 minute walk from LSE campus (and a shorter bicycle, bus or tube ride). We are about 12 minutes' walk away from both King's Cross Station and St Pancras Station, which provide easy access to the rest of London and much of the UK. The area has a great assortment of restaurants and bars, and we are within comfortable walking distance of the British Library and the British Museum.
The building 'shoulder' houses 330 undergraduate and postgraduate LSE students, while the adjoining tower accommodates students from universities all over London. The majority of rooms at King's Cross are arranged in clusters, with two to six rooms sharing a kitchen/common space. There are also some self-contained studios. The building contains two shared common rooms, two laundry rooms, a computer room and a cafe.
The residence is managed by urbanest UK Limited, an independent service provider. Urbanest staff manage the hall on a daily basis, including for maintenance and cleaning requests, and help ensure that everything runs smoothly. Urbanest also work with the elected Student Hall Committee to put on a series of events throughout the year which will help you to get to know each other and the local area.  

I look forward to meeting you and hope that you have a memorable and fulfilling year with us here at urbanest King’s Cross!
