Student accommodation at Kingston
International student accommodation
Finding the right place to live is an important part of settling in, especially as an international student. At Kingston University International Study Centre, we offer a variety of options to suit your needs.
At Kingston University London, you can choose to:
- Apply to live in halls of residence, where you'll have your own furnished bedroom in a University-managed flat shared with other students
- Live independently in a privately rented flat or house share
Why live in university-managed accommodation?
Staying in the University's accommodation, you will benefit from living nearby to your classes. Living with other students makes it easy to meet people and make friends. Furniture is provided and your safety is a priority, with security provided 24/7.
Kingston's halls include
- Single en-suite study bedrooms arranged in flats in modern halls
- Self-catered plans with shared kitchens and on-site launderette facilities
- Free internet access
- On-site management with 24-hour security
- Designated flats for mature and postgraduate students
- Adapted accommodation for students with disabilities

Look out for fraud
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 email@example.com 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.
How to book
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.
Private accommodation offers more choice and flexibility. You can:
- Live near your campus, in Central London or elsewhere
- Choose who to share your flat or house with
- Pay your rent monthly
The University and International Study Centre offer support to help find your flatmates and look for your new home.
Arranging your own accommodation privately
If you are booking your own accommodation privately it is important that you let us know where you are staying.
