Student Accommodation

  • Accommodation is guaranteed for first year students who make Bradford their first choice; applications must be made by the specified deadline.
  • Accommodation is at the Green, the student village based on City campus. This is an eco-friendly student village, with buildings arranged around a central landscaped pond; rooms are available in apartments, and flats in townhouses. With high standards of sustainability as well as design, rooms cost very little to heat and light.
  • Living in the Green puts students right at the heart of university life, with events run by the Green Ambassadors social scheme providing a welcoming and sociable environment for students living away from home for the first time.
  • Alternative accommodation is available in private halls, traditional student houses and flats close to the university. The Accommodation Services team and Unipol Student Homes can advise students about finding the right type of accommodation.
