If university accommodation is not available or alternative lodgings have not been organised for your arrival, you may wish to book short-term accommodation, in a local hotel or guest house.
There are several advantages to pre-booking accommodation in this way. You know exactly where you will be staying and can plan your journey from the airport or train station before you leave your home country. You may also wish to get to know the area around the university better to enable you to make a more informed choice when choosing permanent accommodation.
The accommodation office at your university may have a list of suitable hotels located nearby.
