About Us

We at Home from Home Student Services Ltd are an independent provider of student accommodation and English language tuition based in London, UK. We were originally founded in 2007 as an accommodation agency for international interns visiting London and developed an extensive database of accommodation. We quickly expanded by offering a friendly and efficient service, and have grown to become one of the largest accommodation agencies for international students and trainees in the UK.

In 2009 we expanded our services further by partnering with some of London’s largest language schools, providing their students with a variety of quality accommodation options, as well as creating additional studying options to our own home-tuition option. The expansion of services offered saw the launch of the ‘London Homestays’ brand. Later in the same year our services were recognised by Visit Britain and we were invited to become ‘Platinum Members’ of their visitlondon.com website. The following year we were invited to become corporate members of English UK and were included in the London and Partners’ official study guide “StudyLondon”.

In October 2015, we proudly achieved the standard for registration with the British Council, as a provider of homestay accommodation for adults and under 18s for accredited providers in London.

We are now established as market leaders in our field, working with highly reputable schools such as Malvern House, Stafford House School of English, International House, St Giles InternationalBloomsbury International, The Burlington School of English London, The Cambridge Education Group and The London School of Business and Finance and pride ourselves on offering a professional service to cater to the requirements of all students and interns visiting London.

Our Aim

Our aim is to provide safe, comfortable accommodation and quality English tuition to international students, interns and trainees at a fair price to suit all budgets. We recognise that moving to a new country can be a daunting challenge and we strive to make the transition as seamless as possible.
