OVERSEAS STUDENTS

We provide a safe secure community for international and UK students

Loc8me is home to a large international student community – more than 15,000 of our 40,000+ residents have come to live with us from overseas. And that means we’ve learnt a thing or two over the years about their requirements and where they may need a little extra help.

“Our experience with Loc8me and agent Caitlin exceeded all expectations. As a group of six friends navigating the process of finding suitable university accommodation, we were impressed by the professionalism and support provided. From the outset, Loc8me demonstrated a keen understanding of our needs, promptly arranging viewings and guiding us through the selection process with ease.”

FAQ'S

Overseas student FAQs

Do I need a guarantor if I am an overseas student?

Yes, we would still require a guarantor that qualifies for the following:

a) A homeowner within the UK with a reasonable source of income (Pension, employment, self employment)

b) Are residing in the UK and earning 5x the annual share of the rent of the tenant you are guaranteeing. With this in mind, the documentation required is Proof of Homeownership/Address, Proof of income and proof of identity.

Alternatively, you can use a third party company such as Housing Hand, that will act as a guarantor for you.

How can I conduct a viewing if I’m not available currently in the UK?
A lot of our properties have virtual tours, therefore, you can view them online. You can always request a member of the lettings team to conduct a virtual tour for you as well. We want to ensure that you are confident when choosing your next home, therefore we will assist you as much as possible.
Is there any support available for overseas students adjusting to life in the UK?
Absolutely! There’s a few ways we can help when adjusting to life in the UK.
  1. Check out some of our blogs here
  2. Speak with a member of the team, we will be happy to give local recommendations
  3. Always speak with your university. There will be plenty of support available and societies before.
What happens if I want to move out earlier than planned?
If you want to be released from your tenancy agreement, please contact your local branch to confirm this. Tenants in most cases will remain liable until a replacement tenant is found. We will assist you in finding someone to replace you on the tenancy by conducting viewings, advertising the property and organising the paperwork. It remains the responsibility of the tenant to find a replacement, however we will be here to assist.
