Types of Rooms

If you choose to live in University-owned or managed partnership accommodation, you'll need to consider what type of room will best suit you.

All of our rooms combine a sleeping and study space. Each bedroom has:

  • a bed (single, four foot, double or twin single)
  • a desk and chair
  • a wardrobe
  • shelving

The ratio of facilities to residents is available in our Accommodation Overview (PDF: 75KB). 

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, water and an internet connection are included as standard (up to a set amount in Managed Partnership accommodation). These are excluded in family and couple accommodation, as well as the studio rooms in Park View.

Some residences include a TV in the communal area and some include a TV licence. If you bring your own TV for your 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.
