Accommodation for students studying abroad

Your new home

Your comfort, security and wellbeing are the most important things to consider when you’re choosing where to live.

Kaplan offers you high-quality student accommodation. It’s often purpose-built, so that you have your own space, where you can relax after a long day, or study in peace and quiet.

You’ll benefit from having support from friendly and welcoming staff. They manage all of the facilities, so that you don’t have to worry about any issues that might distract you from your studies. They’ll give you a warm welcome, and provide total security, to ensure that you feel safe throughout your stay.

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

Kaplan Living (with residences in Bournemouth, Brighton, Glasgow, Liverpool and Nottingham) was a finalist in the National Student Housing Awards 2019. Thousands of students across the UK completed the National Student Housing Survey, and we’re so honoured that our residents recognised our commitment to providing a fantastic student living experience.

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.

My accommodation is great, and has wonderful security and reception staff. The residence is clean, and they work to keep everything up to date. They also organise free activities like games nights, movies, and pizza nights.
