Going to university is a brilliant chance to spread your wings and live independently for the first time.

To make things easier, we have a fantastic range of halls on campus so you're always close to the social and learning facilities you need.

The important bit: on campus accommodation is extremely popular so to be in with the best chance of securing a room, you need to apply early.

On campus accommodation

Also known as halls of residence, this accommodation is university-run and available across two of our campuses. Campus accommodation is not available for consortium students.

College Lane Campus

There is a mix of accommodation styles available at this campus, comprising Flats, Houses and traditional Halls of Residence, with shared bathroom and kitchen facilities. All rooms have network connections. There are some twin rooms at the College Lane campus.
