New students at the University of Northampton can choose to live on-campus in halls of residence or off-campus in private rented accommodation.
Living in halls of residence
A popular choice for first year and international students, the University of Northampton's halls of residence are the perfect environment to make new friends and develop your independence, as well as being conveniently located for access to our library and the campus bar - perfect for study and socialising! With over 2,100 bed spaces in our halls across Park campus, Avenue campus and Northampton town centre, we offer a selection of different room types to suit all budgets.
All our student rooms are furnished with a bed, desk, wardrobe, bookshelf, chair and bin and the main utility bills for heating, lighting, water and electricity are included in your rent. Your room will have network and WiFi access, providing links to the University computer network.
You can take a virtual tour to help you choose between our different halls of residence.

Residential Life Team
If you have any questions when you arrive at your hall, the Residential Life Team will be available to help.
