Zebra gives international students the opportunity to live like a Londoner. We are a long established London housing association, offering housing and support services for single international students, couples and families.

All our homes are within Zones 1 & 2 and many of them are situated in culturally renowned locations.

Zebra is a “not for profit” association aiming to provide international students in London with reasonably priced accommodation and responsive support. We advocate  tolerance, understanding and internationalism and believe that we can promote this through enabling people from anywhere in the world to study and live in great locations in London.

I live in an area which is very safe, and I enjoy the many social and leisure activities organised by Zebra. These provide excellent opportunities to enjoy a short break from study and make new friends studying here from different parts of the world.

  • Coronavirus

    The Zebra office closed on 18 March with ‘phones diverted to Steve and Heidi’s home and other staff working from home. So, we are still providing a basic service to residents and still letting flats (without actually coming into physical contact with new residents) with the assistance of our wardens and deputy wardens – and a big thank you to them.

    But inevitably we’ve been forced to scale back our maintenance service so that we are now only doing urgent and emergency repairs, and health & safety work and inspections.

    Our cleaning contractor of many years, Happy Hands, has proved invaluable continuing to operate an enhanced regime, which includes daily cleaning and disinfecting of all common areas (including shared bathrooms, WCs, laundries and hard services) and regular steam cleaning.

    It is really important that all residents maintain good health and safety practice, and continue to follow the advice that we have been sending out to you all. This will ensure that we are all do everything we can to keep our residents, staff, and cleaning and maintenance contractors safe.

    Major Repairs

    We’ve obviously put a number of schemes on hold whilst others have had to be mothballed until we get through this crisis. This includes the work at 34 Chalcot involving new lighting and fire detection, re-plastering and redecoration and the bathroom refitting programme at Jerome. As soon as we are able, we’ll resume work and we are very sorry for the inconvenience.
