More than just a room

short but sweet

Not every course fits into a standard academic year, not every student’s accommodation requirements are the same.

Short stay contracts during the academic year and summer period are ideal for full-time students studying a range of courses, such as pre-sessional courses, English language courses, non-degree courses, Erasmus exchange students, or placements as part of your studies, as well as a whole host of others.

At Abodus we pride ourselves on offering flexibility wherever possible; if you’re looking for student accommodation within the current academic year on a shorter contract, or a room over the summer break, we may be able to accommodate you in some of the best locations across the U.K.

Whether you’re on a placement, are just looking for a semester let or your current student accommodation hasn’t quite worked out, we’re happy to chat through our availability at Abodus. In some cities we can offer short stays for as little as two weeks, and in most of our cities we can offer summer student accommodation on a flexible contract.

With every booking, you can enjoy the same all-inclusive package of services and benefits as our full time students, including lifestyle and laundry facilities, bicycle storage, car parking where available and, of course, superfast wi-fi. As with all of our students’ contracts, all utility bills are included in your rent making it really simple and easy to budget.
