Finding somewhere to live

Moving to London can be a daunting prospect but there are a number of ways Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) can help you find somewhere to live once you have been made an offer of employment.

Find out more about the location of the hospital and local transport links to help you choose where to live.

We have a range of staff accommodation available to let on six-month assured shorthold tenancies. 

Housing agencies offer key worker housing for essential public sector workers, including NHS staff.

There is plenty of private accommodation available to rent in London, both near GOSH and further afield.

Accommodation Bureau

Set up and funded by the Special Trustees, the accommodation bureau is a free service to all staff and associates of GOSH and the Institute of Child Health (ICH).

The accommodation bureau:

  • can help you find long- or short-term accommodation in the private sector
  • is able to nominate you for Key Worker housing where required
  • can recommend local hotel and B&B accommodation if you are a short-term visitor (i.e. observers,  temporary placements, locums and those attending courses at GOSH)

Leasing a room or a flat

The Accommodation Bureau maintains a database of landlords with accommodation to let in the vicinity of GOSH.  

We recommend you contact those who can offer available accommodation appropriate to your requirements and budget.

The accommodation bureau cannot guarantee suitability or safety of accommodation as information is taken on a trust basis.  It is up to you as an individual to assess suitability according to your own needs.  

Similarly, the accommodation bureau cannot take responsibility for payment arrangements or issue receipts for rent expenditure. These must be agreed between you and your landlord.

Where is the Accommodation Bureau?

Great Ormond Street Hospital 
Level 4, Barclay (formerly York) House
37 Queen Square

Do I need an appointment?

No appointment is necessary. The Accommodation Bureau operates a drop-in service on Monday – Thursday, between the hours of 10am and 4pm.
