University Managed Housing

University managed houses (UMHs) are perfect if you’re looking for an alternative to halls of residence but are still keen to experience life in university accommodation. Because we manage these properties on behalf of the landlords who own them, the Accommodation Team will always be your first port of call for advice, assistance and maintenance issues.

Our UMHs range from four to eight-bedroom properties, each with its own distinctive features. As soon as you have been allocated, we’ll send you all the information you need to help you settle in and we guarantee the same items of furniture and household goods as we provide in all our accommodation.
