Wellington St Plaza is one of our managed partnership residences, owned by Unite Students. 

Only a short walk away from campus and the buzz of the city centre, this stylish residence provides spacious bedrooms and a small supermarket right on its doorstep. Each flat includes three to six en-suite rooms with small double or double beds, kitchen, and lounge areas. There are also social spaces where you can relax with friends.

Please note, if considering this residence as a preference for 2023/24 entry, Unite Students will be carrying out works to the external facade of this property between 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday, during the academic year. Residents will hear some low noise disruption during working hours, and see scaffolding on site. Unite Students will communicate notice of these works to all tenants ahead of them starting.


Wellington St Plaza is located next to the Business School, Frederick Douglass Centre and the Urban Sciences Building. You'll be staying in the heart of the city centre, close to the central train station and football ground, just a five-minute walk from the main shopping and restaurant areas of the city.
