Finding accommodation with a January-to-January contract is a challenge, as most landlords are used to renting out from September. We have a limited number of rooms available in halls of residence on campus which you can apply for directly (contact the local accommodation office) however it is likely you will have to look in the private rental sector.

Details of areas to consider are listed below in our private accommodation guides. For example, in Surrey, Guildford is a student city and hosts students from Surrey university, University of Law, Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM), and Italia Conti making it a vibrant student town in which to live. You can catch direct trains to both Epsom (40 minutes) and Farnham (25 minutes).

Our accommodation team has put together guides for January entrants seeking private accommodation which gives you advice on where to seek a place to stay. Please email them directly on if you have specific questions or need some help.
