Leaving home is a big deal for a student, particularly if they are having to move from another country to the UK, and many would be more comfortable within a family setting rather than a flatshare or in students quarters. In fact, most students who leave university do so in the first few months because they are homesick and lonely.
Many international students choose to live within a home setting because they want to improve their language skills and experience family life in the UK. Many families already rent a spare bedroom to help in these situations.
