York student houses are in high demand, with international and domestic students flocking to live in this historic city. One of Britain’s oldest cities, and once the most important British city outside of London, the pretty walled city of York is now home to two universities and plays host to a buzzing student community spread across a wide variety of student houses. Students from The University of York and York St John University enjoy the many attractions this historic city has to offer, the abundance of greenery found in the city, and the exceptional local pubs that have a traditional feel rarely found in other British university towns. Nearby Yorkshire Dales also provide a welcome outdoors escape during exam season, for those weekends not spend enjoying your student house with friends. We advise booking viewings in November as the most popular York student houses are booked in November and December before the Christmas break.
