We are pleased to offer our YSJ International students the following choices of accommodation:

Homestay accommodation

Most of our students prefer to stay with one of our carefully selected and inspected Homestay hosts. Our hosts welcome international students from all over the world and provide the care and support that students really need when they are far from home.

Homestay accommodation will give you the opportunity to practise your English outside the classroom and learn about British family life. Your host will provide you with a single study bedroom, breakfast and an evening meal, and with lunch at weekends.

We do our best to match our students to the right homestay host, by considering your interests, hobbies, and preferences and those of the host.

The fee for Homestay accommodation is £126 per week.  A £5 retainer rate may apply for pre-arranged vacations.

Please note: Homestay accommodation is not available for students studying on BA or MA degree programmes.


University halls of residence

York St John University accommodationAt certain times of the year we are able to offer accommodation in one of our halls of residence. One hall of residence on our campus is semi-catered and living here you would take all of your meals in the main University dining room. The other accommodation sites are self-catered, where you would share a kitchen with 3 or 4 other students and prepare your own meals. All self-catered accommodation is situated close by to the University and the city centre, within 10–15 minutes walk.

In all of the residences students have a single bedroom with an en-suite or shared bathroom, a shared kitchen and Internet access.

For more information please see our accommodation pages.


Guest house accommodation

If you are studying with us for a shorter time and prefer to stay at a local hotel or guest house we shall be happy to help you with booking accommodation at one of the hotels or guest houses close to the City centre.
