We are delighted that so many of you have decided to join us this year.  We provide lots of options for living and all our halls of residence give you the opportunity to live in an environment that promotes diversity, embraces excellence and works to develop a strong sense of community.

  • Wednesday 27 August: Frobisher House, Alexandra Works, St Thomas and St Teresa

You will receive an email from us and you'll have approximately seven days (details will be in your email) to pay your deposit from the dates shown here. Alternatively, log into the portal from here. Please contact us if this causes you any problems at or call the Residence Life team on +44 1752 588644.

Still on the waiting list for a room for September 2014?

Existing bookings are being released daily as students defer or change their study options. We are also seeking new accommodation. Students on the priority list will be contacted personally to be offered these rooms as they become available.

Please be patient and don’t worry, we will find accommodation for you.
