Arranging your own accommodation privately

Alternatively, you can arrange private accommodation independently (over 18s only). We recommend for the best student experience and to be able to fully engage with your studies that you live in some of the locations listed below.

It is important that you let us know where you are staying and there is a requirement that you live within 50 miles (less than 60 minutes away) from the International Study Centre. It is your responsibility to ensure this is arranged and ready for your arrival in the UK.

Whatever your budget, there are many different private accommodation options available, in various locations close to the International Study Centre. We are here to help and will support you every step of the way.

Living close to the Centre comes with many benefits, such as a more lively atmosphere, access to restaurants and entertainment venues and other cultural activities. It is the best way to get the most out of your time studying in the UK.

Please also refer to our 'Look out for fraud' section, which highlights the potential risks of booking accommodation privately.

Nearby locations to live

These towns have more to offer than just their ideal location. Whether you're after a vibrant university town or a quieter seaside home, these nearby locations are all within the required 50-mile distance of the University.

Middlesbrough is a popular, affordable place to live. Many younger people choose to live here because of how close the University is, creating a diverse, vibrant community. Middlesbrough was recently named as one of the small cities of the future by the Financial Times. 

Middlesbrough boasts a lively atmosphere with restaurants, busy shopping centres and a range of entertainment venues, from pubs and sports centres to galleries and museums. If you enjoy exploring the outdoors, then you will find many relaxing hotspots, such as the popular Stewart and Albert Parks. There is something for everyone and, because you'll be close to the International Study Centre, you will have your whole world at your doorstep.

Darlington is a large market town located in County Durham. Lovingly known as ‘Darlo’, it has a rich industrial history and was the birthplace of the world's first steam-powered passenger railway. Smaller than Middlesbrough, it is perfect for students who want a quieter university experience, whilst also having strong travel links to the University: the International Study Centre is only 40 minutes away by train, or 22-40 minutes by car.

Most commonly known as Stockton, Stockton-on-Tees is a small market town only a 30 minute train journey away from the University. It is located on the banks of the River Tees, offering peaceful riverside walks or water sports activities for those seeking something more adventurous.
Travel around Darlington is very affordable, giving you easy access to nearby cities such as Middlesbrough, Newcastle and Durham. Stay local or travel further out to see everything that North Yorkshire and Durham has to offer. 

Redcar is a beautiful seaside town located on the coast of Yorkshire. It is only 7 miles from Middlesbrough, so a fun night out with friends is never too far away. A perfect place to live for those wanting to live near the sea, whilst maintaining close links to the University and other towns.

The University is just 30 minutes away by train, or 15-25 minutes by car.

Located just 35 minutes away by train (20-35 minutes by car), Saltburn is a seaside town very close to Middlesbrough. Known for its stunning beaches and striking Victorian architecture, whether you like surfing, exploring or visiting one of the many independent shops, Saltburn is perfect for those who want to be only a moment away from the coast.
