We have a wide range of accommodation for postgraduates. We can also help you find University managed or privately owned accommodation.

How we're keeping you safe in COVID-19

Ahead of autumn 2020, we've made lots of changes to university accommodation to ensure you'll be safe.

This includes carrying out targeted cleaning in high-contact areas to ensure your accommodation is clean and safe, limiting numbers in reception, hand sanitising stations, and more.

You can also book your arrival time on your allocated arrival day to help control the number of people in our buildings.
