Campus and Crime Map

Student Accommodation

  • Many first-year students opt to stay in halls of residence. Most students live off campus after the first year, and some new students prefer to do so from the start.
  • There are almost 1,200 rooms (many ensuite) available across the campuses. Most students have their own study bedroom (some rooms in Ambleside are twins) and share a kitchen, lounge and bathroom. A member of the residential life team is on hand to help.
  • There is a good choice of reasonably priced homes around the campuses. The university only advertises or leases properties that have been accredited by the council and inspected to ensure they meet statutory safety regulations.
