Nutford House is owned by the University of London, and is available to UoL students (KCL, UCL, RAM, LSE, QM, etc.). I cannot recommend it enough. It's in a super location, close to loads of stations - Marble Arch is 10 mins away, Baker street 10 mins, Marylebone 10 mins, Edgware Road 5 mins. It's situated very close to Edgware Road so there are plenty of shops around. The location means that getting back from a night out is really simple because there are countless night buses nearby. Being catered is particularly useful for a 1st year uni student (food is of a high standard) - it's a very comfortable living situation. Room sizes vary but most people are quite happy with what they have. For many 1st year students this will be one of the less favourable options to live, but I cannot recommend it enough if you want to make good friends. Lots of good friendship groups are maintained as there are not too many people living in hall and you get to mix with people from other UoL colleges - this is a real bonus. The staff are very good and any problems you might have with your room or otherwise are quickly resolved.
I spent a year in these halls and I do not regret a thing.
So, I´ll be short: Nutford House is a great place to live. I only can confirm the observations of my collegue from the previous review. So, I´ll be short: Nutford House is a great place to live.

Nutford House, Brown Street W1 Nutford House is one of a clutch of Intercollegiate Halls run by the University of London in the centre of the city. Although the others are in the Bloomsbury area especially near ULU and on Cartwright Gardens, Nutford stands in splendid isolation in the hallowed streets around Marble Arch. I lived there for three years and found it to be a pleasant and rewarding experience. Nutford House‘s main attraction is its location. It is made up of three constituent parts in the salubrious Marble Arch area and is roughly equidistant from the tube of the same name and Edgware Road on the District and Circle Line. The area is quiet and pleasant and the pubs are pretty good too. The building itself is perhaps unremarkable but it is about a hundred years old so it has more charm than the average, impersonal tower block affair that is more common to student accommodation. It also offers a pleasant garden which is rare treat in the summer especially at revision time when you can lounge in the garden and bone up. Nutford also boasts a conducive mix and atmosphere. It has an almost equal mix of male and female students who come from all over the world and study all manner of subjects at nearly all the constituent colleges of the Uni of London. This eclectic, multi-cultural combination is beguiling and invigorating. This variety is augmented by the professional staff and the extremely friendly and caring Wardenial staff. The Warden and his senior students do an excellent pastoral job for students as well as keeping a semblance of order in hall. There is an active Junior Common Room who organize all manner of parties and events throughout the year including the glitzy annual ball. The bar too is excellent, situated in the basement and rather cool it acts as venue for regular quizzes, karaoke and special events. The drinks are exceptionally well priced. I would heartily recommend Nutford Hou
se to anyone considering studying at the University of London because it is welcoming, comfortable and splendidly situated in the middle of town.
