When you think about starting university, you expect to be filled with excitement about what the next three or four years of your life will be like. But you may still be nervous so to help we've put together some common concerns from students and how to deal with them.
Take a virtual tour of our student accommodation
Are you a student getting ready to start your first or your final year at university? Are you studying in the North or the South of the country? Do you want to live with friends or perhaps you’d prefer a little more privacy?
No matter who you are, where you are, or what you’re looking for, with student accommodation across the UK, we’re sure to have a student room that’s right for you; somewhere for you to call home.
If you don’t believe us, why not come and have a look for yourself? If you’re not able to make it to our properties in person, that doesn’t mean you can’t view our accommodation.

Alternatively, if it’s safe to do so, some of our sites will be happy to arrange a video call with you and take you on a live virtual viewing around the building.
If you have any questions about our accommodation and booking a room with us for the new academic year, then please get in touch with our on-site teams. You can also follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for the latest updates from Host.
Getting serious about the environment we live in.
To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.
It’s a simple campaign! If we can reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by 1% then we will donate £10,000, 2% reduction means £20,000, 3% is £30,000 and so on, to 3 charities; BulliesOut, Planet Patrol and World Land Trust.Show me all news
