Student.com, which is free to use, has information and reviews on accommodation options in London. Before any of the properties are featured, the team visits them to ensure they meet safety standards and expected quality levels.
The website also has a price match promise, so advertised prices will always be the same as on the provider’s website. Most accommodation contracts will require students to have a guarantor. Student.com can help with this and will recognise international guarantors.

Advice and Support
You’ll need to book your accommodation directly with the provider as the University is not liable for managing the tenancy.
Free advice and guidance on housing matters is available through the Students’ Union Advice Centre, which can also signpost students to other support. Advisors can help students with understanding their rights and responsibilities under the tenancy agreement and how to deal with any problems.
