What's it like to live in student accommodation?

Make new friends

Students by the new accommodation Going to university is a brilliant chance to spread your wings and live independently for the first time. Living on campus is also a great way of meeting other students and making new, lifelong, friends.

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

Most of our study-bedrooms are single rooms. However, there are some twin rooms on the College Lane campus and some students do share accommodation on a permanent basis. If you need family accommodation, we can give you advice and information on renting in the private sector.

Well equipped facilities

Fridges and microwaves are provided in the communal kitchen areas of our halls of residence.

You will be responsible for keeping your own bedroom and the communal areas of your accommodation clean.

There is a no smoking policy throughout the University buildings and the halls of residence.
