Living with Us
Find out information about our accommodation.
A welcoming environment
As your landlord, the University takes its responsibilities seriously; we aim to provide a comfortable living environment for you to study and relax in. Living in our accommodation also gives you a unique opportunity to meet people from all kinds of cultural and social backgrounds, and make friends for life.
We are very proud to have been ranked in the top 25 in the country for student accommodation in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2017, and hope that you will have a fantastic time living with us.
Access to great facilities
Our residences have an extensive range of facilities, and you'll be able to choose between catered or self-catered, en-suite, washbasin or standard rooms.
Simple, transparent pricing
Our transparent pricing structure, inclusive of most fees, makes it easier for you to budget. We offer flexible payment terms to help you spread the cost.
We also take care of the fiddly bits so that you can concentrate on settling in and getting to your lectures on time. Insurance, Internet and utility bills (up to a set amount in some accommodation) are all included in your rent. Some rents even include a TV licence.
Flexiblity and choice
Contracts cover the full academic year and include the Christmas and Easter vacation periods. There's no need to empty your room when you head back home for short visits.
Summer extensions are always available if you want to stay in the city over the summer for a job, to travel or to socialise.
Safety and security
We take the safety of our students very seriously. The Estate Security Officers patrol our accommodation to ensure your peace of mind, and the majority of our residences have entryphone systems and CCTV. In case of emergencies, we always have someone on call - 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
When the time comes for you to move out of University accommodation, you'll have access to our specialist student housing service, NUstudenthomes. This is an ideal service for second and third year students. Going through NUstudenthomes, you can be sure to deal with a professional and friendly team, and it will also save you money as you won't have to pay any administration fees.
