"For me, William Temple House was my home away from home. I got the opportunity to make friends across borders, to get to know different cultures, and to grow as a person through the support, warmth, and respect of the people at that house.
We have a saying in Lebanon: A house is made by its people, and indeed, WTH is a living example of that."
"William Temple House is an absolute standout of a highlight during my time in London. Far more than simply a hostel for university students, it's a warmhearted refuge from the cold London rain, a 24/7 support network, and a wicked haunt to throw awesome themed parties!
The staff go above and beyond to ensure each resident feels welcome and comfortable during their stay. The friendships you will make in these sacred halls last a lifetime."
"William Temple House is a great home for international students in London. I am so grateful that I found this house in my search for student accommodation. I formed great friendships, interacted with people from diverse backgrounds, ate good food and enjoyed wonderful events organised by the WTH Office.
The WTH Office make a great effort to provide a safe, comfortable and welcoming space for all students in the house that allows a real community to be formed. Thank you to Rob, Tekla and Rode for your kindness during my stay at WTH."
"One of the best things about living at William Temple house was that I was able to meet so many different people from all corners of the world! I enjoyed learning about different cultures, and traditions, especially through the cultural nights we had. It was also interesting to meet students with different academic backgrounds - from musicians to researchers, every conversation was always something new and exciting!
Apart from the events organised by the residents, the wardens also organised fun events throughout the year. My favourite memories were the cozy chats with other residents in the common room, late night dinners in the kitchen after a long day at university, and just lazing with Schweiny the cat in the back garden."
"Living at William Temple House has been a fantastic experience – it has such a friendly atmosphere and a care for students that goes above and beyond.
It has been a privilege to live with such a diverse group of students for the past 2 years, and has provided me with lifelong friends. William Temple is a home away from home!"
"Staying in William temple house was undoubtedly a wonderful experience! One of my biggest concerns was being far from my family in a foreign country for the first time, but unexpectedly I felt very welcomed, like it was my second home.
I met many friendly people from all over the world! also, I loved how the wardens were always attentive and caring, whenever they could, they would organise nice 'family-like' activities. I have very nice memories!"
