Zebra is a “not for profit” association aiming to provide international and UK students in London with affordable student accommodation and responsive support. We advocate tolerance, understanding and internationalism and believe that we can promote this through enabling people from anywhere in the world to study and live in great locations in London.
We specialise in providing postgraduate housing and this means that we understand the particular needs of older students, particularly internationals, the pressures they are under and the home environment they are looking for. We also know how difficult it is to find the right student accommodation in London where there is a lot of student housing but much of it not necessarily suitable.
We specialise in postgraduate housing primarily for international students but we now also house UK students too. Our student accommodation is in Zones 1 & 2 of London and all of it close to the tube and good transport links.
The neighbourhoods in which our student housing is situated are safe, secure, and family friendly with parks and green open space close by.
Our central London neighbourhoods are great for exploring the city and enjoying it as Londoners do. You will have remarkable opportunities to sample a brilliantly diverse cultural and culinary local environment. Even the local shops and markets will amaze you.
Because we are a not for profit values driven business not only do all our profits get re-invested in our homes but we provide more affordable student accommodation.
We have been providing student accommodation in London for more than 60 years. As well as individual students, we also house lots of couples and families and every year we have lots of babies born whilst their parents are living in our student accommodation.
Because you will be living in student housing that is occupied by other postgraduates you’ll find you are living with like-minded people from across the globe in a supportive and friendly environment. Our postgraduate housing allows you to stay on as long as you are in full time education. But our tenancies for student housing don’t tie you into long contracts. You can leave at any time – you just need to give us one month’s notice.
Types Of Property We Offer
Most of our student housing is self-contained with its own kitchens and bathrooms and even individual rooms have their own cooking facilities.
Our student accommodation is in character, older houses, in historic neighbourhoods typical of the London one knows from films and books. Because our student accommodation is in older properties much of it has high ceilings and interesting spaces – but you’ll be pleased to know that heating is included in the rent.
We offer rooms large (double) and small (single), self-contained studios (with their own kitchens and bathrooms), one bedroomed flats (many of which are large enough for someone with a family) and two bedroomed flats. Some of our student accommodation has gardens which are shared with other residents.
All of our housing has a laundry in the scheme. Rents always include water, heating and broadband. Some rents also include hot water and electricity but we’ll be clear exactly what’s in the rent when we offer you accommodation. Our student accommodation is furnished but you’ll need to provide bedding, cooking and kitchen utensils.
