Lifestyle

This £75 million development provides 1,261 self-catered en-suite bedrooms (each with a four-foot bed) in four, six, seven and eight-bedroom flats, as well as 16 single studios across six residential blocks. 

Each of the flats includes a spacious communal kitchen/lounge with a flat-screen TV which is the perfect space to socialise. Outside of your flat, you will have the opportunity to meet students from other blocks in our multi-use common room, which includes a gaming area, as well as spaces for socialising and studying. You will also benefit from an on-site laundry.

If you would like to order essential items such as bedding, stationery, cutlery, etc. to be delivered to your residence ready for your arrival, you can visit our preferred partner UniKitOut (with a 10% discount with the code NU10). 

Please note that building works are being carried out at the nearby Sports Centre and academic building, and as such noise from the site may be experienced during your stay. If you are noise sensitive, you might want to take this into consideration before applying to stay in this accommodation.

This accommodation is spread across six blocks of four to 10 floors, with lifts provided in each block. There are on-site entry-phone systems and CCTV. We take the safety of our students very seriously and Estates Security Officers patrol our accommodation to ensure your peace of mind.
