Outside the summer, most residences are fully booked with University students. However, sometimes we have a possibility of finding you a vacancy in one of the many different residential providers in the City Centre area.
Residences are currently subject to COVID 19 secure rules and restrictions such as social distancing and quarantine.

Half Board or Full Board
Shared Room: we can provide shared rooms for couples/friends/family.
Staying in a homestay is an ideal way to practise your English and get to know British culture. You will live as part of the household, taking meals together and sharing the common living areas. We have many wonderful hosts of different backgrounds: families with children; single hosts living alone; couples without children or whose children have grown up and left home. Your host will provide you with a comfortable room where to study and relax. They will give you a change of towel and bed linen every week, and will wash your clothes. However, it is a home and not a hotel, so we ask you to respect the house rules.
For all students under 18, the main host will be DBS-checked (police-checked) as part of our safeguarding procedures. Our welfare staff at the school reception are always available to talk to if you have any concerns about your homestay. If it becomes necessary, we will find you a new homestay as quickly as possible.
Minimum stays 14 nights.
Price includes: bed linen; kitchen pack; toilet paper; weekly cleaning of the common living area.
Not included: towels; laundry of bed linen and clothes; room cleaning.
Residential Deposit. You are required on arrival to provide credit/debit card details to cover the cost of a £100 security deposit for lost keys or damage of any kind. Payment will be made and a refund, minus any deductions, will be made on your departure day. Damage must be paid for at the cost of repair/replacement. In the event of collective damage in a flat where no individual claims responsibility, the damage bill will be shared equally among the occupants of the flat.
