We appreciate the importance of living in comfortable and safe accommodation during your time at IFG London. Below you will find details of our recommended Student Residence providers – Amber Student (to book directly with Amber Student please click here) and Londonist who offer a range of student residence accommodation across London that can be booked before you arrive.

Student Residence Accommodation

Most of our students live in student halls of residence, with single ensuite rooms where you share the kitchen and living room with about five or six other students. Prices are in the range of £250 – £350 per week, which includes all utilities, so you won’t have to pay extra for internet or heating. There are also studio flats which cost a little more.

Residences offer comfortable, modern rooms and furnishings and are also very secure. Try to book your place as quickly as possible as rooms get taken quite quickly and the longer you leave it, the less choice available.

Homestay Accommodation

In homestay accommodation you live with a family. Usually, the family will provide your breakfast and evening meal and do your washing. The cost, including breakfast and evening meal, is about £250 per week. A lot of students make long-lasting friendships with their host families and it’s also a great way to improve your English, so long as you are prepared to respect family routines and fit in.  For examples of homestay accommodation available in London please take a look at HFS London hfslondon.com

Private Shared Apartments

You can also book accommodation in a private apartment, either on your own or sharing with other students. There are various websites to check, including Rightmove: rightmove.co.uk. We’re also very happy to advise you on the booking process.
