University Managed Housing

Choose University Managed Housing if you'd like to experience student living but feel part of the local community too.

University Managed Houses (UMHs) are perfect if you’re looking for an alternative to halls of residence but are still keen to experience life with other students. Because we manage these properties on behalf of the landlords who own them, the Accommodation Team will always be your first point of contact 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.

Safety & Accessibility

Safety

The city of York was voted the safest city in the region for students (Complete University Guide 2017).

Where you live is a big part of being at university; this is why York St John University has registered to The Student Accommodation Code.

The Code protects your rights to safe, good quality accommodation and ensures you get the best out of your time living here.

It outlines everything students can expect from our accommodation as well as your responsibilities as a tenant.

We are committed to providing a quality environment for you to live in.

Accessibility

We can offer assistance for students with disabilities or additional needs on a case-by-case basis, ranging from allocation of a fully accessible wheelchair room, to minor alterations such as supplying a fridge for medication. We are able to make adaptions to nearly every room that we have, depending on the requirements of the student. For more information about the accessibility of these rooms and flats please contact the Student Accommodation Team at accommodation@yorksj.ac.uk or on 01904 876660.

Life in York

The Shambles
York Minster

A city like no other

York is a city that feels like a town; it's a place where you will come to feel like a local very quickly. Our independent spirit shines through in our history and architecture; everything has a story. People have been going to Betty's for tea and a fat rascal for 100 years; people have been walking down The Shambles for thousands. Despite this, we've also got the chains you know and love (just in quirky little buildings with wonky staircases). Everything in York is a little bit more interesting.

If you have a pie and a pint in a pub built in the 17th century, you'll learn about life in York from the locals hanging out at the bar. You can swing your legs by the river with a drink from The Kings Arms, a pub that floods most years yet stays open as long as it can (sometimes you might need wellies to get to the bar!) You can take a football to the Millennium Bridge or Clifton Ings for a kick around or cycle a scale model of the Solar System spread along the route of an old train line. If you prefer hanging out somewhere particularly modern, we've got cultural hubs based in redeveloped shipping containers, shrouded in a canopy of fairy lights. York is ever changing and developing. We're innovative. We'll keep you interested.
