Hosts are selected for their friendliness and homes must meet the British Council and English UK standards.

In order to be matched with the right host it is advisable to book well in advance and inform us of any requirements (e.g. dietary/medical requirements, whether you smoke and whether you’d like a family with children or pets) by completing the off-campus accommodation request form.

Travel information

If you choose to live off campus and use public transport to travel to Regent’s to attend classes, we would recommend that you buy a weekly travelcard from Transport for London (TfL).

London is split into nine fare zones, and the cost of your travel card will depend on where your accommodation is located. Regent’s University London is in Zone 1 (central London), so any travel card you purchase will need to cover the cost of travel between Zone 1 and the zone you live in.

Fare zones covered Full fare With student discount applied*
Zone 1 only £35.10 £24.50*
Zones 1-2 £35.10 £24.50*

Zones 1-7 £69.80 £48.80*
Zones 1-8 £82.50 £57.70*
Zones 1-9 £91.50 £64*

 Each of the above options covers you for tube, bus and rail transport within your chosen zones. 

*In order to qualify for student discount, you must be enrolled on a course that lasts 14 weeks or more and apply online for an 18+ Student Oyster photocard. Please visit the Student’s Hub to find out more.
