Looking for accommodation in London?

London is a cosmopolitan city with a varied range of accommodation options.
Before starting the accommodation hunt, you should have the whole idea about how accommodation scenario works in London.

1. On campus student halls

These accommodations are really close to university but are little costly. All bills are included in the rent most of the times.

2. Off campus student halls

These are similar to on campus halls but are outside campus and hence a little cheaper. You can choose from the single room, shared room, studio, En suite etc. All bills are included and property managers take the hassle of maintenance. So you can focus on studies and fun. Also, students get their private place with an option to mingle with students from all over the world.


3. Homestays

Some hosts put a room in their home for rent. Host and tenant share the common area. All bills and the maintenance will be included in the rent and many times food is also included in the rent. As you will be staying with the hosts which there will be some house rules.


4. Individual apartment

You can lease whole apartments with your friends or individually. All bills and maintenance are on you and hence it makes it little cheaper compared to other options. But if you are new to London it is really tough to get good individual apartment due to lack of rental history and local knowledge. Even if you want to choose this accommodation option, It is recommended that you should live in any of the first 3 options for few months and then go for this option. Apartment1
