International Students



kss logoMPW’s international students needing accommodation have a range of options. Many are referred to accommodation managed by Kensington Student Services (KSS), an independent company, wholly owned by the Mander Portman Woodward group. KSS was established as a specialist accommodation agency to provide and arrange accommodation for international sixth-form students aged 16 years and over studying in London, Birmingham and Cambridge.

KSS students live in a range of safe and secure high-quality student accommodation, including fully-supervised student residence, homestay accommodation, or if they are older and more independent, in apartments.

The key features of the different types of accommodation are:

Student residence

  • Fully supervised with live-in House Parents
  • Single rooms, some with en-suite facilities
  • Within walking distance to the college

Homestay accommodation

  • Carefully selected families who liaise closely with MPW and with the students’ guardians
  • Morning and evening meals provided


  • Studio or multiple occupancy, depending on preference
