Our accommodation

A collage of exterior views of Marjon's student accommodation

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.

Our accommodation

Accommodation guarantee

Students studying at Marjon for the first time on our Plymouth campus are guaranteed either a room on campus or in off-site University approved accommodation.

To meet the conditions of the accommodation guarantee you must:

  • Be a new student at this University (either first year undergraduate, top-up or postgraduate).
  • Have applied for a 42 week contract.
  • Meet admissions requirements.
  • Be unaccompanied.

New students can apply for accommodation once they have accepted a firm offer and your accommodation will be allocated on a first to apply basis. The guarantee applies to all first year undergraduate, postgraduate and progression students who are coming to Marjon for the first time.

Apply for Accommodation

Ready to apply? New students holding a firm offer with Marjon can apply now for accommodation and your accommodation will be allocated once your offer becomes unconditional. Applications open for Sept 2022 on 1 January 2022.

Contracts and payment plans

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:

  • 18 weeks due September, 12 weeks due January and 12 weeks due April (in-line with payments of grants and loans from the Student Loan Company)
  • A parent, guardian or other can pay on your behalf via standing order of eight payments, the first due in September then on the 1st of each month from November to May.

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.
