Accommodation for students studying abroad

Your new home

Finding student accommodation that is comfortable, secure and suits your needs is a hugely important part of the experience of studying abroad. Wherever you choose to study with Kaplan, we provide a range of great-value accommodation options, designed specifically for international students. Halls of residence are our most popular options. These stylish, high-quality residences have on-site staff to provide total security, and ensure that you feel completely safe throughout your stay. In selected locations, we also offer other accommodation for students – homestay and student houses.

If you already know where you’re studying, find accommodation at your study destination in the UK, USA or Australia.

National Student Housing Awards 2019

We are delighted to be finalists in the 2019 National Student Housing Awards! Thousands of students across the UK completed the National Student Housing Survey, and our students recognised our commitment to providing them with accommodation that truly feels like home. We look forward to hearing the results when they are announced in September.

The first time I walked into my room, I felt like I was walking into a brand new hotel! The staff who work in the residence really helped me a lot, with their smiles and genuine desire to help. They always put us first and gave us good advice on everything.
