Kensington Terrace

Kensington Terrace


Conveniently located just a 5-minute walk from the centre of campus, Kensington Terrace is well placed in the heart of campus. A selection of 10 beautiful converted town houses consisting of 7-17 students, prices start from just £149.94 per week.

Please note there will be a rolling programme of kitchen refurbishments taking place throughout the academic year 2022/23, therefore noise disturbance should be expected. Students occupying kitchens that are to be refurbished, will be required to temporarily use an alternative kitchen facility whilst the works are carried out. Where possible, we will limit the noise disturbance to standard working hours. 

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.
