While we do not have UWS-managed student accommodation in London, there are many private rental options for students seeking accommodation. Private accommodation is let out and managed by private landlords or state agents, which can be confusing, especially amongst international students trying to book it from abroad.
There are purpose-built student accommodation options; private room rentals inside a shared house or flat; private flats or studios; or host family accommodation if you are looking for a more enriching cultural exchange.
Before registering with letting agents, who will be able to assist in finding properties who meet your criteria, it’s important to check if the letting agent is registered with one of the UK’s leading accreditation schemes below:
There are a lot of options online, you can search for properties independently in one of the websites below.
Host Family Accommodation
Host family accommodation is not used only for students coming to the UK to study English, but for anyone who would like to learn more about English culture and have excellent cultural exchange in an authentic environment.
