Hello United Kingdom

Attracted by the great universities and the promise of future prospects, people from all over the world come to study in the UK. Halls of residence, student societies and sports clubs are at the centre of the British student way of life. These help every student meet other people with similar interests, and a pint or two later, they’ll be your new best friends.

All the cities in the United Kingdom are unique. London is a city where there is always something going on for those who like living fast. Friendly and cheap, Leeds is one of England’s largest student cities. Manchester might have the best live-music scene and food of the whole country. Nottingham is a small town for party animals - with one of the country’s coolest campuses, too. We also have great student accommodation for students in the UK in Cardiff and Sheffield.

  • Cardiff

  • The capital and commercial centre of Wales, but also one of the most important cities in the UK. The waterfront shows a modern vibe and is home to the Welch Senate, the Assembly and the Millennium Centre. While the centre still keeps the ancient era alive, with touristics sighs like the Cardiff Castle.

    Hometown of Roald Dahl and currently the film set of Doctor Who; it is also one of the newest capital cities in Europe and has an incredible nightlife, as well as a great music and sport scene. If you like rugby, Cardiff is definitely the place for you. The city offers plenty of programmes and universities, which makes for a great Erasmus destination.

    As a student, you are probably looking for a place near the university or/and the city centre, Uniplaces is here to help you. Head over to the website and browse and filter as much as you want so that you can find the perfect room to rent or apartment to share while your stay in the city.

  • Leeds

  • Located in the middle of Great Britain, Leeds is one of the fastest growing cities in the country. Not too small but not too big either, the perfect size to make you feel right at home. It has a lot going on for students, from events and parties to music festivals, and of course plenty of bars and discos for the exciting (even if sometimes rainy) night outs. If you want to master your english, do your Erasmus or even master’s degree, make sure to check out what Leeds has to offer.

    Its position will make travelling around the UK very easy so if you’re one of those spontaneous people that take night trains to cross the country and spends some hours in another city, Leeds is the perfect homebase to do so.

The capital of England is well known for its famous, iconic landmarks such as the Big Ben, St. Paul’s cathedral, amongst thousands and thousands more. Then there’s the British cultural heritage, best displayed by its impressive architecture and the huge museums.

    However, we know that students also care a lot about a city’s nightlife and atmosphere. This city never sleeps! Pubs, bars, clubs, warehouse afterparties, you name it: London has it all.

  • A city that has left behind the steel industry and has opened the doors to urban renewal. This change has made Sheffield become a very popular for national and international students.

    Home of the oldest football club in the world, Sheffield FC, and also one of the greenest cities in the Europe. The typical british architecture, the big university campuses and the pubs of Sheffield will welcome you with arms wide open and you’ll be soon cutting the word the off of your vocabulary and using while as until, like a true local.
