Kensington Terrace is one of our University-owned residences. 

Conveniently located just a five-minute walk from the Students' Union, Kensington Terrace consists of 10 beautifully converted town houses, accommodating 7-17 students per house. This residence is available for undergraduates and postgraduate couples. 

Please note: there will be a rolling programme of kitchen refurbishments taking place throughout the academic year, therefore noise disturbance should be expected. Building works are also ongoing to an adjacent academic building and will continue throughout the academic year. If you are noise sensitive, please consider this when choosing your accommodation. 


In close walking distance to the city centre and just five minutes away from the Students' Union, Kensington Terrace is well linked to the restaurants and bars in the city, as well as the University.
