putting a temporary address will not be leading to visa refusal right ?
If that what is already stated in your application this where you should stay on arrival however you should get a permanent place arranged before arrival too incase asked on arrival why your are staying in a hotel if you are student

There no student accommodation to stay with my partner around middlesex university and the landlords are not letting properties for people who don't have visa.That's the problem .What is your advice ?
You should try looking at apartments on and see what you find.

My worrying is that my visa could get refused if i book a hotel or an apartment for 30 days and put that address in the student visa application as my location of stay
