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.
Hamilton is a large town in South Lanarkshire, in the central Lowlands of Scotland. Within the town is the Lanarkshire campus of the University of the West of Scotland. The university has over 17,000 students distributed across their five campuses, with the recently updated Lanarkshire campus giving students access to some of the most modern university facilities in the UK.
Students make up a considerable proportion of the population in Hamilton and there is an active accommodation provision. There are several halls of residence in the city, which include properties owned by the university and privately owned halls of residence. University halls typically offer both full board as well as a self-catered alternative, with options for a private or shared bathroom. These halls of residence are usually campus based.
Private halls can often be dispersed throughout the area with convenient transport links into campus. This type of accommodation offers students a good range of options and is generally run by recognised companies that effectively manage student accommodation throughout the UK.
Accommodation is available throughout Hamilton and the local area, through private landlords and private student residences. Shared houses are a popular choice amongst university students that wish to move on from halls and are mostly popular with groups of 4 or more friends. Additionally, a good supply of flats and apartments can be found in town centre locations, for those that prefer a smaller place to live. This accommodation is typically managed by landlords or letting agents who specialise in student accommodation.
