    So, I'm EU student, this will be my first year. I haven't booked any accommodation because I'm a late applicant and I wasn't sure if I would go study abroad. Anyway, my firm is DMU in leicester and I probably won't be able to book an accommodation because it's too late, anyone can tell me what are my options here?

    Try calling your university and ask what your options are. If all else fails then you will just have to look for private accommodation and rent a room in a shared house/flat with other random strangers.

    Thanks for the reply. Would you know how most of these private accommodations for students work? Like I have to make a deposit when I enter the house or if bills are included in the rent and such, because I don't have a clue about how this works in the UK.

    For students you either look online e.g. gumtree, rightmovestudents or other websites; you may also find them advertise alongside the road if you are here in advance. The rent may or may not include utility bills in the rent or just partially e.g. internet but no water or electricity; so you would have to find a provider with the other housemates or yourself if you're living alone. Yes you would have to pay a deposit all landlords would ask for one, just make sure when you pay your deposit it is kept in a 3rd party deposit scheme to keep it safe. Also, you wouldn't need to pay council tax as you're a student so if you receive a letter asking for council tax just email them saying you are a student and give them your student ID or ask you university for a letter to forward to them proving that you are a student.
