About Middlesex University

Middlesex is a world-class centre for education, research and skills-based learning with a 130 year heritage. We offer a wide range of courses, taught by academics who are researchers or practitioners in their field and share their real life experience with their students. Our state-of-the-art campus in Hendon, north London, is one of the biggest in the capital and means our students have everything they need in one place – including 24/7 support.

Our students come from all corners of the globe; a third from outside the UK – as do many of our academics. This creates a diverse learning environment that gives you the international perspective you need to compete in the global job market. Our degrees focus on employability and encourage work placements, which is why we’ve been ranked among the top UK universities for graduate salaries, meaning you’ll be well placed to succeed in an increasingly competitive job market. Besides the main campus in London, there are also three other campuses in Maldives, Malta and Dubai, making Middlesex University as an international institution with global experience and influence.

Private rented accommodation
Accommodation available can include flats, houses or lodgings with a live-in landlord. These options are usually located away from the University's main halls of residence. There are plenty of places available to rent near campus and many different options to consider with private rented accommodation among which includes:

  • Lodgings - This usually refers to renting a room in a house with a live-in landlord. Use of shared areas, for example, kitchens, lounges, toilets, or outside spaces, will be by informal agreement. You will usually have to pay a deposit to ensure you adhere to the terms and conditions of your tenancy agreement. In most cases however, no formal rental contract is required.
  • Rooms in flats or houses - Many of our mature students choose this option because it can suit people who prefer a quieter lifestyle. You will typically have to sign a contract for a minimum of six months before moving into a property, and will usually have to pay a non-refundable cash deposit. 
  • Short-stay accommodation - If you need short-stay accommodation there are hotels, guesthouses, and bed and breakfast accommodation for a range of budgets across north London.
  • Rents, expenses and insurance - Depending on the area, the facilities available, and the general standard of accommodation, average rents vary between £85 - £115 per week. Unless you're living in lodgings, bills for gas, electricity and water are unlikely to be included so you will be expected to pay these separately.
