If you’re coming to the UK or Ireland from overseas, you won’t be alone – we have students from over 130 countries living with us and we make sure each and every one feels right at home.

When coming here to study from outside the UK or Ireland, staying with Fresh makes very good sense, with over 90% of those who stay with us say they are ‘Very Satisfied’ or ‘Satisfied’ with what we offer. In fact, our International Students are so happy with us that we are proud winners of the National Student Housing Survey’s International Accommodation Quality Mark.

We understand moving to a new country can be a little daunting.

With the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic we are working hard to prepare for your arrival. Our buildings are fully Covid-secure and we’re following government advice closely to put plans in place to ensure our buildings are safe and welcoming. Please take a look at our Covid section for more details.

Our Residents’ Team can give you a virtual tour of the building, send you photos and floor plans, or provide information about the local area. Our 24/7 smart online booking system can find the perfect room for you at any time, no matter what the time difference.

To help you settle in we’ve launched a new wellbeing and lifestyle programme called “Be”, which has loads of fun and exciting events ready for when you arrive and plenty of opportunities to make new friends. Take a look for yourself.

When you’ve chosen your building, its dedicated Facebook page and Twitter account means you’ll start getting to know people and catch up on all the latest news well before you arrive. At booking, you can select your move-in date and time online, ensuring there’s no delays at check-in, which is great to know after a long flight. We can even help arrange a taxi transfer for you to make the journey as easy as possible.
