Private Hostels

You may prefer to stay in private student hostels where you will be able to mix with students from many different schools and colleges in London. Hostel vacancies fill up very quickly so please make sure to apply as soon as possible. For more information please use the web site links below. The sites give useful information for students studying in the UK, details of other student hostels in the London area, and tell you how to apply.

The IFCELS Visa, Welfare and Accommodation adviser, Delia Lozano,  can be contacted for more details. Her e-mail address is:
