Types of UK Student Accommodation

Halls of residence

Owned, managed and maintained by the 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 a 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 of residence

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.

Private accommodation

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 the property's cleanliness.

Homestay accommodation

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 home areas, such as the kitchen and living room. The guest is usually provided with meals by the host family; in some cases, they may have access to the family's laundry facilities.

How much is UK accommodation for students?

The cost of accommodation for 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, so accommodation costs are also higher. Students in London expect to pay between £200 and £500 per week for accommodation.

Breckett Front  My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.  Breckett Front
