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.


Situated a stone’s throw from Willesden Junction station, The Collective offers living spaces that are designed on each floor to bring people together. Ranging from quiet places to work, themed dining rooms and a roof garden for socialising. You’ll also get access to useful and convenient facilities such as a gym, spa and restaurant – all in your own home. With regular events such as inspirational talks, networking and film nights through to spontaneous BBQ’s, there’s always something to get involved in.
