Londonist, United Kingdom

The Londonist DMC is an award-winning student accommodation agency located in central London. The company started in 2013 with 30 rooms and has had an impressive growth over the last 7 years, counting today around one thousand rooms over 20 different locations across London in zones 1,2 and 3. Our portfolio includes student residences at King’s Cross, Spitalfields, Old Street, Highbury, Islington, Camden, Greenwich and many more key locations.

We are specialized in finding the ideal “home away from home” for each student, tailor-made to their individual needs. We can guarantee this by offering a wide selection of premium student studios, en-suite rooms and apartment rooms with flexible booking dates ranging from 2 to 51 weeks.

The Londonist residences offer a variety of amazing facilities within the premises, such as gyms, cinemas, computer labs, social and study spaces. All bills are inclusive and the residents have a 24/7 security and maintenance team on site. We also provide additional services to help our students such as airport transfers, insurance, kitchen equipment, bathroom equipment and more.

Our target markets are the Middle East, Asia, Russia & CIS countries, Latin America, and Europe and we have a dedicated sales team for each market. Our main headquarters is in London, but in 2018 we opened an office in Istanbul and last year a brand-new office in Shanghai.

We are really proud that the quality of our performance has been widely recognized in the industry. Last year we received the ‘ST Star Service Provider Award 2019’ and the ‘People’s Choice 2019’ of British Youth travel Awards.
