Why Choose Short Term Let

Most students choose to live with us for the whole academic year, but there are hundreds of different types of courses and course lengths and many students want a more flexible short term contract.

You may not want to commit to a full academic year contract if you are studying full time, but your course is only for a short period, such as:

  • An Erasmus exchange programme or other international exchange course
  • An internship as part of your studies
  • A non-degree course such as dance, drama or a post-graduate technical qualification
  • A specialist course or module located in a different city to your main studies
  • A pre-sessional course or English language course ahead of your main studies

We offer short term lets for full-time students in many of our fantastic properties in key cities across the UK. Our short term student accommodation is modern, comfortable and spacious and is well-equipped with all of the facilities you will need to enjoy your short term let.

If you choose to live with us on a short term let, whether it’s for just a few weeks or the remainder of the academic year, you’ll have all the same services and facilities as students who live with us for the full year, including onsite laundry facilities, bike storage, car parking, outside spaces, social areas and unlimited superfast wi-fi. All student short term let contracts are fully inclusive of utility bills meaning it’s really easy to plan your budget.


Short stay student contracts are available from as little as 2 weeks and flexible tenancies can be for a few weeks or months, a single semester, two semesters, or for the remainder of the academic year.

Our short term student lets are subject to availability and there may be some restrictions on the length of stay, but we will always do our best to accommodate you.

Please check our Short Term Student Accommodation page to find out what we have available for a short stay in your city.

Summer Student Accommodation

In most cities, we can also offer summer accommodation on a flexible basis which can be ideal for students who are taking part in additional studies or an internship over the summer period, or for international students who are remaining in the UK for the summer break between academic years.
