It is essential that you start considering your accommodation arrangements before you travel to the UK. Uxbridge College London does not provide accommodation for its students, nor can we recommend or organise any accommodation for you; however, we can advise you where to look.

Ideally, you should have arranged your permanent accommodation before starting your course.  It may be advisable for you to make arrangements for temporary accommodation before you arrive, and sort out your long-term accommodation following arrival.

A useful starting point for information regarding accommodation is the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA), who provide a useful set of guidance notes on things to consider when looking for accommodation. www.ukcisa.org.uk/student/info_sheets/accommodation_overview.php#options

Alternatively, you may also wish to consider using the Accommodation Booklet provided by Uxbridge College London as this contains listings of sources for temporary and long-term accommodation.
