Accommodation for part-time students

As most halls of residence cater for full-time students only, accommodation options is usually limited to renting on the private sector, flat-share or homestay (staying with a family).

With regards to finding accommodation on the private sector your first port of call should be the University of London’s Housing Services (ULHS) which is based in Student Central, next door to our main building on Malet Street.

As a Birkbeck student, you can benefit from the ULHS legal advice and contract check services, and access their housing database and their student flatsharing message board.

The ULHS also provides information on the right to rent check implemented since 1 February 2016.

Living with a host family via Homestay can also be a very practical option, particularly if you are a student new to London and are looking to improve your English language skills.
