Owned, managed and maintained by universities, accommodation for international students at halls of residence is usually guaranteed for first year applicants. A private room will generally be allotted, while spaces such as kitchen and lounge area will be shared in an apartment of anything between 4-8 fellow students. All bills, including wi-fi, are included in your rent.
Private halls share many of the same characteristics as university owned halls of residence, such as inclusive bills and shared spaces, but they are generally slightly more expensive. Because of the extra expense though, facilities are often more modern.
Renting privately is a popular choice for students once their first year of study is complete. Renting privately is wholly independent, and it is important to understand that you are responsible for all bills and cleanliness of the property.
Homestay accommodation is where international students or visitors stay with a UK family in their home. The host family provides a private room for the guest and shares common areas of the home, such as the kitchen and living room. The guest is usually provided with meals by the host family, and in some cases, they may have access to the family's laundry facilities.
The cost of accommodation for international students in the UK varies depending on several factors, such as the location, type of accommodation, and facilities provided. On average, students can expect to pay between £100 and £250 per week for a room in a shared house or flat, while purpose-built student accommodation can cost between £150 and £300 per week.
The cost of student accommodation in London is generally higher than in other parts of the UK, and so accommodation costs are also higher. In London, students can expect to pay between £200 and £500 per week for accommodation.

I sincerely thank SI-UK for getting me accepted to UCL. The MSc in Urban Development and Planning is extremely competitive, but the right guidance provided by SI-UK made my dream of studying at University College London a reality. The services were exceptional from beginning to end.
