International students

If you are an international student thinking about living in the private sector student accommodation, you should read our advice for international students living off campus and UKCISA’s excellent information for students looking for housing (UK’s national advisory body supporting international students). Once you have an understanding of the practicalities of living in private accommodation, email to discuss your needs. There may be financial or cultural differences to renting in the UK; our Housing Team will be able to guide you through any unfamiliar processes and legal aspects.
