Living in residences is a university experience not to be missed, especially if this is your first time living away from home. Our undergraduate accommodation is among the best in the country. It was voted number one in the UK by the What Uni Student Choice Awards in 2011 and our research also shows that we have some of the best value student accommodation compared to the UK's other top 30 universities.
Come and see for yourself
We strongly recommend that you attend one of our Applicant Days during which you will be able to visit our accommodation blocks and look at some of our rooms. The Applicant Days run between November to March. We have other opportunities to see accommodation, and these can be found on our 'Visit Us' Pages.
