Option 1: Homestay Accommodation

A homestay is where you live with a family in Leeds. You can eat dinner with the family, practise speaking with them and enjoy your own room. You are part of the family, and you will be able to learn about the city and the culture in Leeds.

MDA College does not offer direct homestay service, but we work with Hosts International, which is an English UK corporate member.

Their prices start at £175 per week to £230 per week depending on the package and room chosen.

Homestay 1

MDA College works with other accommodation companies to help our students find the right accommodation in Leeds. All external providers are separate to MDA College.


Our partners at Hosts International provide good quality homestay in Leeds for individual students and groups. You can choose your package and live with a family in Leeds. You can choose a range of packages, including B&B, shared room and private bathroom.

Hosts International are British Council registered.

Their prices start from £175 per week to £230 per week (extra supplements may apply).

Option 2: University Halls

If you would like more of your own space, we can help you to find a room in one of the many university halls in Leeds. 

You can meet other students and live close to the city centre. You can get en-suite rooms or catered packages.

Prices start at £140 per week to £250 per week depending on the length of stay and accommodation type.

Why should I stay in university halls?

University halls give you privacy and independence while you study. Students usually stay there for several months, so you can meet lots of other students and make new friends. Usually, student halls are near to the city centre.

What problems might happen here?

You will usually need to cook and clean for yourself unless you choose a catered package. You cannot usually stay here on a short booking (less than 12 weeks). It might be more difficult to make friends if you live in the flats.

Option 3: Serviced Apartment

If you would like to live with friends or family, or to live independently, a serviced apartment with cleaning and furniture included is a great way to experience Leeds.

Our partners at The Apartment Network can help you to find an apartment with everything you need, including parking and a choice of many different locations.

Prices start at £199 per week to £800 per week depending on location and type.

Why should I stay in a serviced apartment?

If you are coming to study with friends or would like to live independently, a serviced apartment is great. It is like a hotel, but you have more privacy and rooms to live in. Many of these apartments are in the city centre. You can stay for a short time or a long time.

What problems might happen here?

Although you will not need to clean, you must cook for yourself and you must try harder to speak English, especially if you live with people from your own country. It is also a more expensive option, so you must think about the price when you apply.

MDA College has only a small number of our own accommodation available, and we cannot guarantee accommodation unless it is booked and you pay the deposit. MDA College will not help with accommodation for non-students. MDA College does not take responsibility for accommodation other than our own. Although MDA College works to ensure our partners meet our standards, we cannot deal directly with problems from them.
