Not sure what type of accommodation is right for you?
AFS always has the widest choice of student accommodation available. To help you find the right place to live, read our brief guide to the different types of accommodation below.
University residences which are generally full of first year undergraduates are a great way to adjust to living away from home and making new friends. Uni halls are usually located close to campus.
Generally offer a higher level of amenities than University Halls, at higher rents. Will be home to a more diverse mix of students and normally located close to campus.
A house share with a group of friends is often the lowest cost option and popular as the next step after living in Halls. Typically located in student friendly areas which require some travel to University.
A flat or apartment is similar to a house share on a smaller scale and will normally have one or two bedrooms. Ideal for smaller groups or couples.
Either a premium room in a Private Hall of Residence or a self-contained flat or apartment where all of the amenities are in one space. Typically the most expensive option.
A room in a house where the landlord or owner currently lives. A good option if you are not too concerned about living with other students and are budget conscious.
A self-contained room, which includes most amenities but with shared bathroom facilities.
A room available in a house share, where a group of existing housemates want to fill an empty room. A good way of getting the benefits of a house share without an established group of friends.

Living in Guildford as a student
Guildford is a town in Surrey where the University of Surrey is based, which over 17,000 students attend. The town provides the perfect balance between rural and city life. It is within easy reach of the capital via great rail and road connections, whilst also being surrounded by the countryside.
With students quantifying a large percentage of the town’s population, Guildford does have a good supply of accommodation opportunities. There are 14 halls of residence in the town, these include both properties owned by the university and privately owned halls of residence. The university offers self-catered flats with shared kitchen, as well as studio flats. These halls of residence are campus based.
Private halls in Surrey are operated by the larger companies which successfully manage student accommodation across the country. These halls are in close proximity to the university and vary from a standard en-suite room to a private studio flat, with access to exclusive facilities. In addition to halls of residence there are various other accommodation options.
Shared houses are noteably popular amongst both returning students of the University of Surrey, as well as students who feel that they are not well-matched to halls. These houses are particularly suited to groups of 4 or more students. In addition, private or shared rental of flats and apartments are a popular choice and can often be found in central locations. This accommodation is usually administered through student letting agencies and by landlords who are specialists in student accommodation.
