London: International Students House

International Students House (ISH) is a student residence and a unique social, cultural and recreational centre. ISH is a charity with the sole aim of improving international understanding and friendship, ISH provides a wide programme of events for students 365 days a year.

Located in the safe neighbourhood of Regent's Park, ISH is a central place to meet students from Britain and around the world. ISH has become a ‘home away from home' for many students, the many facilities and our fun and friendly environment make ISH the perfect place to spend time, whether for an evening event, a weekend in London or the entire year!

ISH was opened at Great Portland Street by our first patron, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother in 1965 and has grown from strength to strength with over 500 residents from more that 100 countries and student members in excess of 60,000. Our current patron is HRH The Princess Royal.

International Students House offers long term accommodation for full time students in London. We have over 500 beds including self-contained flats and are located in zone one in close proximity to many educational institutions. Telephones, fridges and broadband internet access are available in all rooms.

We also offer accommodation for couples and families in our new flats at Blain House in Balham, South London.
