Housing in London
Most students studying in the London Program choose to stay in the Worrell House which is owned by Wake Forest.
Worrell House is situated in a beautiful spot in Hampstead 20 minutes by bus or Tube north of central London. Students enjoy the large garden and the kitchen, among other amenities. Shopping and restaurants are close by. The Worrell House can accommodate 14 students and the faculty director. Classes are held at Worrell House unless a field trip has been scheduled. Students who do not stay in Worrell House will stay in flats within easy distance on public transportation of Worrell House. Wake Forest will help students who do not stay in Worrell House to find appropriate accommodations elsewhere.
Space is limited in the Worrell house. If you apply after the house is full, we will put you on a housing wait list.
If we are unable to accommodate you in the Worrell house, you will need to find your own housing. Here are a few suggestions to search for housing in London:
