Finding the right place to live is a very high priority for students when coming to the University. Our Accommodation Team aims to make the transition from home to higher education as easy as possible. Whether you are looking for your first place away from home or a house to rent in your second, third or postgraduate years, you can be confident that the Team will help with any issues throughout the whole of your course.

On Campus

During the summer of 2013, the Halls of Residence underwent a significant capital investment as part of the University’s commitment to enhancing the student experience. The refurbishment included brand new contemporary en-suite cluster flats and modernising the existing Constance Stewart Hall.

Our Halls of Residence are primarily available to students in their first year and disabled students. However, we do reserve a limited number of beds for international students.
