Accommodation for International Students

International students are guaranteed a place in halls of residence for their first year of study, as long as they meet the application and allocation deadlines.
  • The university halls of residence are a great way to meet people and make new friends. Students will be with people from all over the world so they can learn about different cultures and meet a real mix of people.
  • The halls provide a safe and secure living environment – there are hall wardens and security staff on-site 24/7 at university managed halls.
  • University accommodation is also available to students in their second, third or fourth year. Students can choose to live in university-managed shared houses or in specific halls for continuing students. Students can choose to book their accommodation individually or with a group of friends.
