Hi. I am an international student too, but I have done some research and here you go.

*Ensuites* - These are rooms which have an attached bathroom w/a shower. So you will have your bed, desk, wardrobe and bathroom (sink+toilet+shower).
If you take catered accomodation, I believe your room will be in the corridors and not in a cluster flat (so your room will kind of be like a hotel room). If you take self catered accomodation, you will have 2 options, either you have a tiny kichenette in your room (so your room will be like a tiny studio but this is less common) or you will have shared kitchen and lounge room in most likely a cluster flat.

*Cluster flats* are like flats where there is one main door, then doors to 5-8 or how many ever student rooms, then a common kitchen and lounge area. Sometimes bathrooms can be shared and thats where it becomes a non- ensuite.

*Non ensuite* has shared bathrooms with other students. Its cheaper than ensuites. You can share a bathroom with as little as 2 but mostly it runs upto 15 students acc to what i read here. I am not entirely sure since I havent started uni. Non ensuites will be catered or self catered depending on where you stay.

*Studio* is an apartment with bed, kitchenette, bathroom, desk, wardrobe, and tiny lounge area. You dont share it with anyone and you can make food yourself.

I am not sure about bed flats. Maybe they are like apartments where you rent a room? Or they are cluster flats? I have no idea. 😅

Thank you so much!! I find this very helpful and I hope this will help other international students too

Do you know if students get the whole room or is there an option to share a room with other students?

Yes, you can opt for twin ensuite or twin rooms if you want to share it with someone!
