How to book your room

It is important to arrange your accommodation before you arrive in the UK. Not only will this give you peace of mind that you know where you will be staying, this will ensure that you have no difficulty confirming your course at immigration or police registration (if required).

  1. Request accommodation when you apply for the International Study Centre.
  2. Confirm your place at the International Study Centre.

The Central Student Support team will then contact you with information about the next steps you need to take to book your accommodation.

Under 18s

If you are younger than 18 at the start of your programme, you will automatically be allocated a room in Endeavour Court. All under 18s will need to book our catering package for the first term, giving you the opportunity to settle in more easily and focus on your studies. After your first term, you can decide if you want to continue to have catered meals.

We have a good supportive friend group, where we all live together in the same accommodation, so it is easier for us. If you need to go on the bus together, we all support each other basically, from the accommodation and in class as well.
