The AA recognises that the prospect of finding private-sector housing upon arrival in London can be daunting, and has therefore enlisted the services of the University of London Housing Services (ULHS). The ULHS offers advice to students regarding how to find accommodation, which areas to consider, pricing, contract checking, legal advice and more. They produce an annual Private Housing Guide and maintain an online database of available accommodation provided by registered landlords and letting agents for both groups and individuals. The ULHS also works with short-term accommodation providers and Private Student Halls of Residences.

Applicants can book an appointment for advice, you’ll just need to provide ULHS with a copy of your unconditional offer letter from the AA.


Note for EU*, EEA and Swiss Citizens:

The UK left the European Union on 31 January 2020. Applicants should complete the Brexit checker and go through the guidance notes on healthcare for visitors to the UK from the EU.

Applicants who are in the UK for less than six months will require a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), which can be obtained from their home country. This card is not an alternative to travel insurance and it will not cover any private medical healthcare or costs, or lost or stolen property. It is therefore important to have both an EHIC and a valid private travel insurance policy.

Note for international students:

As you will be in the UK for less than six months are not covered for National Health Service (NHS) services and treatment, and must therefore obtain travel and health insurance from their own country.
