Ealing, Hammersmith and West London College's governing body has purchased the 50-bedroom Moullin House hostel in central Ealing for £2.6 million, which it plans to redevelop into a hall of residence for international students.
Refurbishment work will start on Moullin House this summer, with a view to opening the accommodation for the 2013/2014 academic year.
The hostel was purchased from the local Methodist Church.
Iain Mackinnon, one of the college’s governors, said: "We are pleased to have come to a mutual purchasing agreement with the owners of Moullin House.
"This acquisition enhances the college's offer to its international students and commitment to provide a safe, comfortable and secure environment whilst they study with us."
