Drama School Student Living

Most draa schools don’t offer student accommodation, but they'll usually help you find the best and most affordable housing in nearby areas. 

We recommend you plan well in advance to find the best options and understand the transport routes to and from your training facilities. 

Below you'll find a list of nearby areas, transport links, housing websites and house share options for training at The Monkey House.  




• Crouch End and Crouch Hill (N8) 

• Islington (N1) 

• Muswell Hill (N10) 

• Bounds Green (N11 – subject to exact location this may require public transport. A popular and affordable area for students) 

• Southgate (N14) 

• Palmers Green (N13) 

• Totteridge & Whetstone (N2)  

• Seven Sisters (N15) 

• Oakwood (N14) 

• Barnet (EN4) 

• Walthamstow/Blackhorse Road (E17) 

• Turnpike Lane (N8) 

• Stratford (E7/E5/E20) 

• Cockfosters (EN4) 

• Holloway and Archway (N7, N19) 

• Drayton Park (N5) 

• Finsbury Park (N4) 




Finsbury Park is situated in North London. Our closest tube is Finsbury Park station which is approximately an 8-minute walk from the school and runs on the Piccadilly line and Victoria Line. Other nearby tube stations include: 


. Holloway Road Station - Piccadilly Line 

. Arsenal Station - Piccadilly Line 

. Drayton Park Station - National Rail and Great Northern  


Other Methods of Transport include the bus, overground and Thameslink. 



Below are a list of bus routes and a map of the London and the underground to help plan your travel. 




As a student in London, you can apply for a Student 18+ Oyster card, which gives you discounted travel-cards and bus/tram passes. You can also purchase a 16-25 railcard for £30 a year for discounted rail travel, which can be linked to your Oyster card for discounted off-peak pay as you go tube travel. 



Embarking on higher education is an exciting new challenge, and for many students it may also mean living independently for the first time. 


On the Meet & Greet day, you'll be introduced to your fellow Fourth Monkey students. This is the perfect opportunity to arrange shared houses, helping you all save time and money in searching for and sharing accommodation. (Remember: Some areas can be expensive but may become more affordable in a bigger house share). 


We think this is the best approach as it provides additional means of support throughout your training journey; you'll be sharing with like-minded people who understand the demands of the course. 


Below are a list of housing websites and student accommodation: 



Alternatively, there are general student accommodation providers that offer accommodation to Fourth Monkey students: 



The London market sees July and August as a suitable lead time for property searches with September starts and, as a university city, there are plenty of residential housing options for students in the local area. 


The London rents map show average monthly rents for different types of homes across London.
