Student Accommodation

  • Priority is given to new students starting a full-time course whose home address is furthest away from the campus.
  • Accommodation ranges from on-campus halls of residence to managed flats and houses; all self-catering and the majority in single study bedrooms.
  • Students' safety and welfare is extremely important: to ensure this, out-of-hours cover is provided by teams of student wardens.
