Browse our list of flats todaZebra has over 60 years’ experience of providing housing and support services for international students and their families. Whether you are single, in a couple or have a family, if you are in full-time post graduate education in a recognised London university we have the student accommodation for you. Our student flats, studios and rooms are centrally located and reasonably priced. All our student accommodation is situated within Zones 1 & 2, most of it is in culturally renowned locations, close to wonderful London parks and squares in safe and friendly locations.
Zebra is pretty unique amongst student housing providers because we are a “not for profit” values driven organisation and all we do is 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. And any profit we make is re-invested in our buildings and services.

There are a number of things that are unusual about Zebra:
We specialise in providing affordable housing for post-graduate students in London
We re-invest all our profits in our buildings.
We house many international students, most of who are studying at doctorate & Masters level, on student tenancies.
We allow students to stay in their accommodation until they have completed their studies and this can be between 1 and 5 years.
Many Postgraduate students don’t have a fixed term time, and so we have tenancies starting, and ending, throughout the year and residents can give one month’s notice to terminate their tenancy at any time.
Many of our residents are mature students, and so bring their partners or spouses, and children, with them to London. Every year a number of children are born to our residents while they are in London. We have had children of former residents become tenants themselves.
We are very conscious that studying in London can be isolating and stressful. Students come to London both to study, and to understand and enjoy its culture. We run a number of programmes to support students, and to help them enjoy, appreciate and participate in London cultural and intellectual life.
We do not provide social housing.
90% of our residents are studying at PhD or Masters level, and we serve students from all of the major London educational institutions, including the University of London (Imperial College, King’s College, Queen Mary College, Royal Holloway College, the London School of Economics, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, the Royal Academy of Music, SOAS, University College), City University, the Courtauld Institute, Eastman Dental Hospital, London Business School, London Metropolitan University, Middlesex University, the Royal College of Art, the Royal College of Music, Royal Veterinary College, Westminster University and the University of the Arts.
