Accommodation for International Students


There are two types of accommodation available for international students:


Homestay accommodation can range from a completely immersive family experience, to a very basic room rental.
In the immersive family experience, the student lives, eats, and shares most of their time in the UK with the host and their family. For family events such as eating out, visits to amusement parks, and travel, the student may be expected to pay for some of the costs (e.g. tickets, parking, petrol, travel expenses, etc.). The student is also invited to participate in holiday festivities (Easter, Christmas, etc.) and family events (weddings, birthdays, etc.).


Alternatively, if students prefer, they may simply rent a room within a private home with minimal supervision from the host or family.

The student will share a residential house or apartment with other students or professionals. There may be between 2 and 10 people, depending on the size of the accommodation. All facilities including kitchens, bathrooms and washing machines are shared.
Single rooms from £100-£190
Twin/Double rooms from £80- £120 per person per week.
