How to book your accommodation
If you have requested accommodation, the Central Student Support team will contact you with the latest information on available options and fees.
Arranging your own accommodation privately
If you are booking your own accommodation privately it is important that you let us know where you are staying and that you are staying less than 60 minutes away from Surrey International Study Centre.
Look out for fraud
Scammers may specifically target international students so it is important to be able to recognise common signs of fraudulent activity and know what to do if you come across it. Let us know at email@example.com if you have any concerns about fraudulent activity when dealing with a private accommodation provider so that we can help to protect you and other international students in case they are targeted in the same way.

“I like the accommodation and campus a lot. I live in Stag Hill and the environment is really good. There's a lake beside us and everywhere is grassy. The air is fresh and there is a lot of nature around the campus. It’s like the dream place I’d want to live!”
