At Rose of York, we recognise that choosing the right place to live can be as important as choosing the right place to study.

For this reason, we are able to offer a range of possibilities to suit every budget and requirement.

All our accommodation is personally inspected to ensure that it meets the Rose of York and British Council standards.

Homestays offer you the comfort of living in a family home as well as an opportunity to practise your English outside the classroom.

On the other hand, residences will suit students who prefer self-catering and more independence.
