Your University Questions, Answered.

Do many students live in Earlham/ West Earlham? Reb, Cyprus


Our Answer:

Living off campus is a decision that incorporates lots of factors – from knowing your budget, to deciding who you want to live with and where you want to be. Luckily, there are many places that are ideal for students to live across Norwich.

In short – yes! Many students do live in the Earlham/West Earlham area. It’s a great place for students as it’s in walkable distance to UEA. However, for those days when it’s raining/you need to get a move on, the area has regular bus routes to UEA, and you can get a discounted bus pass.

There’s also a Co-op and Tesco Express on the ‘fiveways roundabout’ which is nearby– so you don’t have to take a bus into the city to get your weekly shop. Plus you’ll also be near to local amenities!

Have you taken a look at Home Run too? This is a private sector letting agency who our very own UEA Students’ Union manage. Based at UEA, they’re here to help our students pick accommodation that has been inspected and approved. From here, you’ll be able to search other places to live in Norwich, filtering on what type of accommodation, area, and cost for example, so you’ll be able to choose somewhere that suits your needs. If you’d like more advice on this, you can contact homerun@uea.ac.uk or telephone +44 (0)1603 592505.

One more option - UEA have an accommodation option called Homestay – you’ll be matched with a family or couple for example, based on your requirements.
