Home stays are by far, the most popular choice amongst overseas students visiting London. Students choose this form of accommodation for the sake of home comforts, a family atmosphere, and a chance to practice their English and generally learn about British way of life. You are not simply renting a room, but can expect to be treated as one of the family. However, student’s expectations will vary and families may vary from a single host mother, to a retired couple, to a family with pets and kids!
Students can choose among different locations (zone 2/3 and 3/4) and different meal plans to suit their needs.
A house or flat share is the general term used to describe most shared accommodation and properties with rooms to rent. Flat shares and House shares have become much more common practice in the larger cities of the UK such as London, Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool, where the cost to buy or rent a property and associated costs such as council taxes and utility bills are very high.
Rarely, a room will be offered as a room share which means that you will be sharing the room with another person, so it is best to check when being offered a room share.
Students can choose with how many people they prefer to share and the house location.
