Campus and Crime Map

Student Accommodation

  • Students are guaranteed a room on campus in their first year, subject to a few restrictions and conditions: please refer to the university website for details.
  • Just like the campus, student accommodation at UEA has been designed to help students make the most of their time at university, creating a great sense of community in a safe, friendly and fun place to live. Students could choose to live in the iconic Ziggurats, or in its most recent addition, the en-suite Hickling and Barton houses.
  • 4,300 fully furnished rooms are available, the majority being single-occupancy rooms grouped around a shared kitchen. Rents are affordable, and there's free Wi-Fi.
  • The campus is on 200 hectares of natural parkland – yet Norwich city centre is just a 20-minute bus ride away.
