UK updates

Increased demand and faster sell out

The 2024/25 academic year has seen an increase in demand for student accommodation, with many options selling out faster than in previous years. With the increased demand, we advise students to book accommodation at the earliest opportunity.

And don’t forget, unlike many private providers, INTO offers accommodation contracts tailored based on their course dates and length of study plan, instead of fixed contracts of 44 and 51 weeks – saving students unnecessary additional weeks of accommodation costs.

Improved UK accommodation process

Students applying for an INTO pathway will now choose their accommodation when they accept their offer.

When completing their acceptance form, they should click on the links to view and select their preferred accommodation type, then make their initial payment via INTOPay.

New steps for booking UK accommodation: 

  1. Download the ‘accommodation request form’ linked on the student’s offer letter. 

  2. Complete the form and return it along with the 'offer letter acceptance form’. 

  3. Click the INTOPay link and select ‘yes’ for accommodation. Accept the offer and provide the initial payment to reserve accommodation.

These changes apply to all UK INTO centers, except for INTO Lancaster University. At INTO Lancaster, students over 18 will receive an invitation to apply for accommodation in mid-June and all students will receive their final offers in mid-August. Visit INTO Lancaster’s accommodation page to know more about the application process.

New room types and offerings

INTO Newcastle University opened its spacious, Platinum Studios to students this academic year. This studio apartment includes exclusive use of the student’s own study room, kitchen and bathroom – all just a 1-minute walk from class.

During the summer period, most INTO centers have spare capacity and can offer accommodation to any student, including non-INTO students. Centers can accommodate large-scale summer school bookings or for individual students. For more information, please contact
