How to book your accommodation

Once you have confirmed your place on your course, the Central Student Support team will be in touch with details on the available accommodation and how to apply.

Students under the age of 18 must arrange their accommodation through the Centre. You will receive an invitation to apply for our accommodation when you confirm your place.

Arranging your own accommodation privately

If you are booking your own accommodation privately it is important that you let us know where you are staying.

Look out for fraud

Scammers may specifically target international students so it is important to be able to recognise common signs of fraudulent activity and know what to do if you come across it. Let us know at if you have any concerns about fraudulent activity when dealing with a private accommodation provider so that we can help to protect you and other international students in case they are targeted in the same way.

What our students say

"The campus has really beautiful landmarks. I really love the nature and the old buildings. The mix is very beautiful...I live in the residences on campus. I think it’s very convenient since I don’t have to travel around."
