To my understanding you need the 的 to signify possession. Look at it like an " 's " in English. Therefore "I" becomes "My". Otherwise it is just saying "I student lives in London".

Actually, I think duolingo has fixed this problem. I did that, and it worked.

The pronunciation of 学生 (tone-wise) sounds a bit off. It doesn't sound like shēng. More like shèng, no?

I believe with combine character, the last one has a natural tone.
