Our entire University is situated on one campus. Whichever of our seven halls of residence you choose as your home, or if you opt for a house in the student village, you’ll be living at the heart of the campus.
It's a great way to make new friends and with no commute you’ll be able to maximise quality time for studying, socialising and sport.
Applications for accommodation for 2022 are now closed. If you are interested in accommodation for 2023, you need to apply first for your place on your course, and once you have recieved a firm offer you can apply for accommodation. Your accommodation will be allocated once your offer becomes unconditional. Applications open for Sept 2023 on 1 January 2023.
Contracts are for 42 weeks from September to July and include the Christmas and Easter vacations.
You pay the University direct for your accommodation in full or in instalments:
Rates include heating, lighting, wifi access and personal contents insurance.
Many postgraduate students go on placement so we offer a 43 week contract (the duration of most postgraduate courses) with a break clause. So, if you do find your placement is more than 30 miles away from campus or more than a 30 minute commute you can break your tenancy for the duration of the placement and not pay for this time.
For first year residents, buying a Dining-in-Card at £820 is obligatory to cover one meal per day Monday to Friday on campus (in the shop, canteen or Sport Centre café). This means you’ll keep eating even if you’re spent all your money elsewhere.
We offer a safe environment with pastoral support, 24/7 security and we fully comply with the UUK Code of Practice for the Management of Student Housing, which is designed to give students a safe and good quality place to live.
