You’re ready for your new adventure in the UK, but before you can start any exciting teaching opportunities, you’ll need a place to rest your head at night.

Finding accommodation in the UK can be stressful, especially when you’ve never been here before, but we’re here to help! Below you’ll find our recommendations for the best websites to use when searching for temporary and long-term housing.

Accommodation When You Arrive

We’d advise that you book 10-14 days of short-term accommodation in the first instance. This will give you plenty of time to find and view long-term accommodation once you’re here.

Airbnb – www.airbnb.com– Popular short-term room rental site. Ideal for finding rooms all over London.

Hotels – www.booking.com– A great option if you’re looking to live in luxury for your first two weeks.

Hostels – www.hostelworld.com– Various hostels around London for those on a budget


Long Term Accommodation

Spareroom – www.spareroom.co.uk– Probably the most popular room and house-sharing website. You’ll find everything on here, it’s highly recommended. Please view the room/house in person before committing on a long-term basis.

Arrive Homes – www.arrivehomes.com– Popular website for teachers, with houses in and around North London with a minimum commitment of 3 months. You’ll need to book in advance to secure a room, especially if you’re arriving for the start of a new school term.

Other websites to consider: www.gumtree.com, www.rightmove.co.uk, www.zoopla.co.uk
