Student accommodation

Haven’t yet sorted your student accommodation? Better get moving and apply online.

If you live within 10 miles of your place of study

We are unable to guarantee you a room in our accommodation. Your application will however remain on a waiting list should rooms become available. These applications will be reviewed at the end of the allocation process in late August/September.

If you live further than 10 miles from your place of study

We can offer you accommodation for your first year of study provided you have accepted an offer on a full-time course with us.

Please note that due to unprecedented demand for campus accommodation, UK students are not guaranteed a room in our halls of residence. If we are unable to accommodate you ourselves, we will assist you by providing contact details and information on how to find accommodation in the private sector.

Private accommodation

If you have chosen not to live in University accommodation, you can find information about private sector properties on our web pages. You should note, however, that it's very difficult to arrange private rented accommodation by letter or telephone and there is often a shortage of private accommodation at the beginning of the academic year.
