Studying in London
The London Dramatic Academy is located at 23 Kensington Square, in one of the most charming areas of London. Centrally located, near museums such as the Victoria and Albert, the Science, and the Natural History, LDA shares its premises with Heythrop College, the philosophy and religion school of the University of London. We have large studios, a library, and smaller rooms for tutorial work. Fordham business and liberal arts students have programs and classes at the London Centre and we share events and activities when appropriate. We are five minutes from the High Street Kensington underground station. Our full-time academic coordinator and office staff are on site to oversee housing, orientation, counseling, events, and activities for all students.
Fordham University reserves rooms and flats for students in various centrally-located neighbourhoods with providers who specialize in student housing. LDA students are housed particularly close to campus due to their full timetable of classes at the Centre. Students may be housed with Richmond American International University in Kensington; as the rooms do not have cooking facilities, those students will be required to purchase a meal plan for ten meals a week which is very cost effective. Students have the option of purchasing an 18-meal/week plan, but this may be more than they need, because they can also purchase food at the cafeteria located on the (Heythrop College) campus as well as purchase food in supermarkets and shops nearby. Should Atlantic House not be able to accommodate all students, Richmond University has lovely flats about ten minutes' walk away which do have cooking facilities. Each flat is either a studio, or has two or three shared bedrooms, and is equipped with a kitchen, living/dining room, bath or shower room. The choice of accommodation is made by the director of LDA depending upon availability.
