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 buildings 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.

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.

Access and Safety

This accommodation is spread across six buildings of four to 10 floors, with lifts provided in each building. 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.
