Student Support

Accommodation Support

Italia Conti does not have its own student halls of residence in Woking, and students are responsible for finding their own accommodation. There are a multitude of accommodation options available in Woking and the surrounding areas.

Italia Conti helps to facilitate a Student Support Network for freshers, where Student Reps share their knowledge about accommodation and starting life at Conti.


Guilden Village is student accommodation based in Guildford (not exclusively for Italia Contia students) providing a whole range of excellent amenities, stylish rooms, and all bills included.

The accommodation offers a mixture of studios and apartments located in Guildford’s Stoke Park.

Italia Conti students are issued with a free bus pass that provides free travel for a year across a wide area of Surrey, West Sussex, and Hampshire, with a regular bus service from Guilden Village to Woking.

Bus 34 runs from Guilden Village to Woking.


There is also ample student-friendly accommodation in Guildford, the majority of which is within walking distance of Guildford station. It is only an 8-minute train journey to Woking.
One of the more popular options, particularly for first-year students is the accommodation offered in Guilden Village.

Scape, Bankside, and The Bridge are also purpose-built student accommodation blocks in Guildford with lots of communal features. There are also many student houses available, and various flats located within proximity to the train and bus station as well as to the town center itself.


In Woking, there are plenty of purpose-built flats around the town center, where some offer an onsite gym, concierge service, and allocated parking.  There are also many three- and four-bedroom houses available for students. Popular apartment blocks for students with studios or one/two-bedrooms include The Centrium, Cardinal Place, New Central, and The Marches.  Woking has a variety of letting agents who are happy to assist students in their property search. 

  • “I have just graduated from Liverpool Theatre School with a Level 6 Diploma in Professional Musical Theatre. I wanted to do the BA Hons (Top Up) in Professional Arts Practice course to further develop my skills for the industry. It is the perfect balance between academic writing and creativity. I already have seen improvements, both in my academic and performing work, and I now really value the ability to critically reflect on past experiences in order to improve my current skills.”

  • “I have found that my first term at Italia Conti has been better than I could’ve imagined. I am working with driven, passionate, likeminded people within all different realms of the performing arts industry. I find that the course is very tailored to each individual and the content is broad enough to apply to everyone but specific enough to challenge each person within their abilities. I find the course to be a place where I can collaborate and interact with people who I’d never had met otherwise. I only look forward to what the next few months of the course bring and feel more motivated than ever.”

I really enjoy how flexible the course is, with regards to being able to tailor my studies to my own practice, enabling me to maximise the benefits of this on my future career. I expect my professional development to be impacted exponentially and I am excited to continue!”

  • “Italia Conti’s BA Top up course was the one for me! Creating a business in under 9 months has been a massive accomplishment! The course really helps shape your future, enables you to meet professional contacts to support your research, and gives you lots of time to understand the area of the industry you want to specialise in.”

  • I’m a dancer in LA and can’t keep up with my peers on how often they take dance classes. This channel has been so helpful for me to keep up my training. Thank you for sharing this with the world. I feel like we are all dancing together even though we are all doing this at different times and in different spaces. 🖤
