Check out some key accommodation facts.
See our guide to some of the popular student areas.
Full-time international postgraduates coming to the University alone are guaranteed a place in university-owned accommodation for the duration of their course.
To be eligible for a place, you must ensure your application for accommodation is submitted online and you have firmly accepted a place by August 31.
Unfortunately UK/EU postgraduates are not guaranteed placement, but in practice, a good proportion of postgraduate students are accommodated, including some with families.
If you are a UK or EU postgraduate and you are interested in living in University accommodation you need to submit an online accommodation application as soon as you have accepted the offer of a place.
