Make yourself at home.

Studying at UEA may be your first experience of living away from home or living in the UK and we want this to be a rewarding experience for you.

You will be matched with a suitable host based on your requirements and preferences. Rooms will be provided on a self-catered or catered basis, depending on whether you want to have your meals cooked for you.
