All of our rooms are study-bedrooms, meaning that they combine your sleeping and study space. Each has:
- a bed (single, four foot, double or twin single)
- a desk and chair
- a wardrobe
The ratio of facilities to residents is available in our Accommodation Overview (PDF: 162 KB).
Rooms are normally allocated to students of similar age and academic status. This helps you make friends and develops a strong feeling of community.
Heating, lighting and an internet connection are included as standard (up to a set amount in Managed Partnership accommodation).
Some residences include a TV in the communal area and some include a TV licence. If you bring your own TV for your study-bedroom, to watch or record any live TV or download or watch BBC programmes via a PC, laptop or tablet you'll need to get a separate TV licence.
In University-managed postgraduate residences we provide bedding.
Undergraduate residences don't include bedding. In University-managed accommodation you can pre-order a bedding pack from us to save you space when packing. We'll include a duvet, duvet cover, pillow, pillowcase and sheet. The cost is £25 for a single and £35 for a double (which includes an extra pillow and pillowcase).
In Managed Partnership accommodation bedding is not included. You may be able to buy a pack on site upon your arrival, or you may need to bring your own.
The deluxe/premium rooms across all residences include either 4ft or double (4ft 6") beds, so we recommend you bring double size bedding if you are allocated to this type of room.

You'll need to make sure you get as much information as you can about the types of rooms available in the property before moving in.
We would always suggest that you view a property in person before signing a contract. If you are going to be sharing with others in a group you should establish at the earliest opportunity who is taking which room to avoid any arguments at the start of your tenancy.
