Scammers may specifically target international students so it is important to be able to recognise common signs of fraudulent activity and know what to do if you come across it. Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any concerns about fraudulent activity when dealing with a private accommodation provider so that we can help to protect you and other international students in case they are targeted in the same way.
Once it is confirmed that you can return to on-campus learning, and if you have requested accommodation, the Central Student Support team will contact you with the latest information on available options and fees.
You may prefer to live independently in the local area, rather than in the University's halls of residence. With a good range of properties on offer, you can easily find a flat or house that suits you.

The University and International Study Centre offer support to help find your flatmates and look for your new home.
If you are booking your own accommodation privately it is important that you let us know where you are staying.
If you require support in sourcing accommodation, please contact our Kingston ISC Central Student Support Team to enquire about our currently available accommodation options.
