Where you live is just as important as what you learn.

Halls are a big part of your student experience and there’s accommodation at all three of our locations. There are great transport links to keep you connected to each of our campuses and surrounding locations.

Why Student Accommodation?

Friendly Student Community

Settling in and making new friends are important first steps in university life. Living in student accommodation provides the perfect opportunity to meet different people studying a range of subjects.

Prime Location

All of our accommodation options are perfectly located, not only close to campus, but also to the local shops, pubs, and transport links. Each of our campuses are within short train journeys from each other. 

Gain Some Independence 

Taking the plunge and moving away from home is the first step to gaining some independence. Learn how to manage your finances, cook and of course work the washing machine.
