Alternative options

Should you not wish to book accommodation through one of the providers specified, we are happy to advise you about the other types of accommodation that are available:

This option can be a great way for international students to balance a new challenge and experience of living abroad with some of the comforts that a home setting provides. This can also be a great opportunity to experience the British way of life and further increase language skills. Facilities offered will depend upon each provider. Guideline prices are shown above. The Study Abroad UK website is one of several useful websites with more information about the Home Stay Service.

*All accommodation for students under the age of 18 will be through the Home Stay Service. These will be offered by third parties and not through QA Higher Education or Ulster University.

These typically comprise large rooms (usually shared between a number of students), with a shared bathroom. These hostels can be found all over London and Birmingham and will expect you to pay per night. This is a good option for emergency accommodation until you can find a suitable longer term lease.
This is the most common type of student accommodation. You can expect to share with between 2 – 8 other students. This can be in your own room or, if you prefer, in a room share with others. The house or apartment (“flat”) will usually consist of bedrooms, a living room, a shared kitchen and a shared bathroom.
A serviced apartment is a type of furnished apartment available for short-term or long-term stays, which provides amenities such as 24 hour reception and housekeeping. Serviced Apartments tend to be a more expensive option than house/apartment shares but cheaper than hotels.

A good place to start your research on the type of accommodation you’re looking for is the Accommodation for Students website.
