University halls of residence
times of the year we are able to offer accommodation in one of
our halls of residence. One hall of residence on our campus is
semi-catered and living here you would take all of your meals in
the main University dining room. The other accommodation sites are
self-catered, where you would share a kitchen with 3 or 4 other
students and prepare your own meals. All self-catered accommodation
is situated close by to the University and the city centre, within
10–15 minutes walk.
In all of the residences students have a
single bedroom with an en-suite or shared bathroom, a shared
kitchen and Internet access.
