Living with a British family in their home will help you improve your English. This is called Homestay.
A host family could be a family with children, a couple or a single person. They will speak English, but this may not be their first language. Host families may have pets.
Our preferred provider Host-Link provides Homestay accommodation. They will visit and approve each of their host families.
You could also share a rented house with other students or rent a room and live with a family or landlord. You would have your own bedroom/ study, with access to shared bathroom, kitchen and living-room areas.
Rent varies depending on the area and accommodation and sometimes may include your contribution to bills.
If you are considering rented accommodation, please check the distance to your campus by public transport.
