Private rental providers
If you don’t want to live in residential accommodation (halls) there are other options available through the private rental market. Whether you are looking to rent a room in your desired location, or a whole property to share with friends or course mates, the following sites might be useful in finding the right space for you:
You can filter options to suit your ideal location, budget, type of housemates and even properties with bills included in your rental price.
Some tips when searching for a private room to rent:
• Filter to “most recently added” to avoid any older ads coming up – even something added 7 days ago could already be gone.
• Try to view the property ASAP – sites are good at hosting virtual or video viewings if required – the sooner you can view, the better chances you have of securing your ideal space.
• Double check transport links and distance from campus.
HOW TO APPLY FOR ACCOMODATION
The application process will be handled directly with the accommodation provider selected. If you’d like to discuss your accommodation needs and options further, the TEDI-London Student Hub team are here to help: firstname.lastname@example.org
FINANCIAL THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND
Whether you get furnished or unfurnished, shared or private will depend entirely on your needs. You also need to consider the cost of bills, including gas, electricity and the internet when looking at accommodation.
Some accommodation will include all bills in the cost of the rent, others will require you to set them up and pay for them yourself. Depending on which accommodation you choose, you might be able to share your bills with your flatmates.
As a full time student, you will not be required to pay council tax. You will be able to apply for this once you are fully enrolled as a TEDI-London student. For this you’ll need a letter of proof that you are a student which we will be happy to provide upon request, after you have enrolled. For more information visit the gov.uk website.
