Here's what you need to know about the accommodation options at Middlesex and how you can apply for it.
Staying in halls can be one of the best parts of going to University. Our Usher Halls and Ivy Halls are a great way to meet people. Make the most of shared spaces to study, eat, watch TV and play sport together. You could also choose to stay with a Homestay family for a more inclusive and personal stay. Or if you're wanting a bit more independence, then choosing private rented accommodation could be for you.
As a pre-sessional student, you should consider which type of accommodation is going to help you develop your language skills.
Whatever accommodation option you choose, we strongly advise you to look into getting contents insurance to protect your belongings. You can take out a policy specifically designed for international students on a short course and if you have a travel and medical insurance policy, contents insurance can be arranged from the UK.

Homestay is a popular choice for international students as it gives you great opportunities to practice your English on a daily basis. You'll stay with a local family that you've been matched with based on your preferences, location and accommodation options.
We work closely with Britannia Student Services, which offer a variety of Homestay options across London
The Middlesexstudentpad website is an excellent place to start your accommodation search. It features up-to-date details of rented accommodation, landlords' contact details, examples of rent and other relevant information. It also includes a message board, allowing you to see notices posted by other students about available housing or rooms.
We suggest you confirm all the details shown on the website with the owner of any accommodation before accepting a room and signing a lease.
We also have a Facebook page, where students often post information about available rooms.
Depending on the area, the facilities available, and the general standard of accommodation, average rents vary between £150 - £220 per week.
Unless you're living in lodgings, bills for gas, electricity and water are unlikely to be included so you will be expected to pay these separately. You may also have to pay council tax as you are staying short-term so make sure to check what's included in the rent.
We also advise to take out insurance to cover your personal possessions wherever you are living.
