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.

Our student halls, which are adjacent to campus, are also mostly new and are extremely popular with students. We also own and rent a number of residencies and small, terraced houses within a two mile radius of the University and so we can generally offer a place for all new students in University managed accommodation.
