A home from home

A home from home, accommodation

Our students come from all parts of the UK and abroad to study with us. Some, who live within travelling distance, chose to live at home.

We guarantee accommodation for all first year students.

We offer accommodation in a variety of styles on a number of sites across the city, most within 20 minutes walk. We are delighted that we can guarantee accommodation for all first years in university managed or approved accommodation.

Your can apply for accommodation once you have received an offer. You can also apply for limited places in halls during any year of your studies. Accommodation Service can also provide information on how to obtain private accommodation in York.

Car parking at York St John is very limited as we are a city-centre campus and car parking for students in accommodation is only available on health grounds.

We offer accommodation in University owned and managed or approved residences on both a semi-catered and self-catered basis. Over 800 of our rooms are en-suite. All main sites are semi-covered by CCTV.

If you need accommodation, our staff in the Accommodation team can give you advice on what’s available and help you find the right place to live.
