Dedicated to you


All of our international students will have to choose an accommodation option and this is not always an easy decision. Choosing where to stay is very important when travelling and we are happy to give you advice and help you make the right choice.  We have a variety of accommodation options so please take the time to read through all of them to see what suits you best. However, if you have any questions you are welcome to email us directly at

All accommodation offered by Lexis has been inspected to ensure that we recommend affordable, comfortable and friendly places for our students to stay.

Our accommodation is only available for Full-time and Summer English courses.

Our top tip:

London is very busy during the summer and accommodation can be hard to find during this time, so we recommend that students book as early as possible. All accommodation options are subject to availability but we always try our best to fulfil all of your requirements.

Information Pack:

Once the accommodation is confirmed, you will receive an Information Pack, which contains further information about London including travel details.


Full-time English

This is a full time, intensive course and you will be listening to, practising and speaking English every day. You will also have plenty of time to explore London in the afternoons and evenings and other parts of the UK at the weekends.

Summer English

This is a full time, intensive course and you will be listening to, practising and speaking English all day and every day. There is a daily programme of afternoon & evening activities included in the package. You will explore London and visit other UK cities at the weekend.

Our homestay families

Why homestay?

When travelling alone, homestay is one of the safest accommodation options. You gain first-hand experience of life in a traditional British family home and because you have the opportunity to communicate in English with your host family on a daily basis, your English will improve faster. Homestay family accommodation is the most chosen option at Lexis. Every year, we place hundreds of students into homestay family accommodation. 

Our homestay families are a short walk from the school. We select warm and loving people, who care about giving our students a ‘home away from home’. Most of our students do not need to travel on the tube in the rush hour every morning. 

Finchley is the ideal location for visiting students who prefer easy access to London without the hustle and bustle on their doorstep. It is a safe, clean and vibrant area of North London, which provides an excellent opportunity for our students to live and learn in a family oriented neighbourhood.

Lexis students can choose between bed & breakfast or half-board in single or shared room. Shared rooms cannot be booked individually.

In busy periods our experienced accommodation team works in partnership with external accommodation agencies in order to find the most suitable option for your needs and budget. Prices may slightly vary from our published fees when we have to use external accommodation agencies. 

Other types of accommodation

Instead of homestay you might enjoy the opportunity to live with other students (from the UK and around the world) at a student residence or would like a more private setting in a shared private home (we also have female/male only houses) or even live like a king/queen in one of the nearby hotels.
