Students have a number of options to consider when thinking about which accommodation to choose.

Halls of residence are a great option for many new students and we reserve blocks on each of our halls for mature and returning students.

Most first year students live in halls because they're just a short walk away from our campuses and they're a great way to make friends. They also offer you safe and good value accommodation with other students.

You can find details about our halls of residence here.

However, halls aren't for everyone. If you have lived on your own before you may not enjoy sharing a kitchen and bathroom. Halls of residence can also be noisy on occasion - even in the mature students blocks. If you would prefer not to live in halls we recommend that you chose a house or flat that is university approved - you can find details about this here.

If you have specific requirements from your accommodation - because you will be sharing it with your family for instance - we recommend that you contact the Private Housing Office to discuss this. You can find the contact details here.
