Accommodation

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

We have a fantastic range of halls on campus so you're always close to the social and learning facilities you need.

On campus accommodation is extremely popular so to be in with the best chance of securing a room, you need to apply early.

Applying through Clearing?

We are unable to guarantee accommodation to any new students applying through Clearing. To give yourself the best chance please accept your course offer asap and apply for accommodation via the accommodation portal.

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 or part time students.

You can live on either campus regardless of where you're studying.
