ICON has a database of host families located around the UK who provide both long and short-term accommodation for students. All host families must meet our requirement for the provision of accommodation in accordance with AEGIS guidelines.We have families in the following areas:

  • London and its surrounding areas
  • North of England
  • Midlands

Places are limited so please contact us as soon as possible on

We encourage our host families to integrate students into family life as much as possible, allowing them to experience new foods and activities which they may not have tried before, we have found that the more our students engage with the host family members the more they enjoy their time living in the UK.
