Accommodation

Although the College does not provide its own student accommodation, private rental rates across the city are very competitive.

Cost  

Accommodation in and around Milton Keynes can range from £50 – £130 per week for a house share. Many landlords will require a deposit and a month’s rent in advance, and you might also need to provide a reference and/or proof of being a student. 

Students are exempt from paying Council Tax. Please contact the Sarah Power from the Welfare & Bursary team on 01908 684394 for more information.

Guides to Renting

Finding the right place to live is a really important part of moving to any new town or city, and will be an equally important part of being successful with your studies at Milton Keynes College. If in doubt, please ask your Personal Tutor or a member of the Welfare & Bursary team, who will be happy to help. Many good guides for students looking for accommodation can also be found on the internet; here’s one example from the Right Move website.

Here’s a list of local letting agencies and websites with accommodation available to students:
