Students living with a host are able to practise learning English naturally, whilst in a safe and homely environment. It is also an opportunity to experience the hosts’ cultures and traditions and, an area as culturally diverse and interesting as South London, makes our centres ideal locations for students to get a taste of British family life.
The homestay locations that At Home UK offer are ideally suited to international students as there are very good transport options to get into London (generally 15-30 minutes within Transport Zones 2-4) and well connected to areas outside London too.

At Home UK receives short stay groups throughout the year that we place within our various centres in South East London. Depending on the type of booking, we can place students in groups of 1-4 in regularly inspected homestays, where they will each have comfortable and equipped bedrooms, communal areas where they can join the host and family and also access to bathroom facilities. Most of our group bookings choose the full board meal plan (breakfast, a packed lunch and an evening meal every day).
At Home UK ensures that all our homestay accommodation has been inspected thoroughly by our Accommodation Officers to ensure that it meets the British Council standards. Our homestay homes are monitored regularly to ensure our high standards and quality of service are maintained.
The majority of our homestay accommodation is in residential areas of London, located in Zones 2, 3 and 4 near to tube or train stations.
