Why Live on Campus?

On Your Doorstep
Living on campus means everything you need is on your doorstep. On-site facilities at our student residences include a shop/deli/café, launderette, common room, and more! Plus, early starts are no more with lectures taking place only a few minutes’ walk or a 2-minute shuttle bus away.

Safe and Secure
We consider the safety and well-being of our residents to be of utmost importance. To ensure that all students are safe and secure, our residences have 24-hour security and reception staff to deal with any queries that students may have. Are you a parent/guardian? Find out more >

Community Feel
For most of us, going to university is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Make the most of it by immersing yourself in campus life and living with other people that are in the same situation as you. It’s a great way to meet new people and make friends for life!

Avoid the Hassle
If this is your first time living away from home (or even if it isn’t), avoid the hassle by staying on campus! Forget about bills, bin charges and even changing light bulbs! At our student residences, we put students first and strive to make their experience as hassle-free as possible.

The Place To Be
There’s always something happening at our student residences. With Events Guides drawn up every semester by our Residential Assistants, it’s a hive of activity! To get an insight into what it’s like, follow us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter!
