Temporary accommodation

The Crick is currently in a position to offer temporary rental accommodation to new recruits subject to availability.

Akenside Road in Hampstead, North London, is a small development of 14 newly-refurbished flats in a very convenient location for travelling to the Crick Lab. The selection of studio, one- two- and three-bedroom apartments offer a temporary base while tenants find suitable long-term accommodation.

The minimum stay in Akenside Road is three months. Due to limited availability, the apartments will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

We will prioritise applications from new starters:

  • relocating to the UK from overseas
  • with dependents or who are expecting a child
  • who are relocating for a short period of time before their partner/spouse/dependents move


The allocation process is managed by the Crick's Accommodation team.

All enquiries should be directed to laura.stannard@crick.ac.uk.
