Travel and Parking

With a community of around 10,000 students, travel and the associated impacts – congestion and pollution – are a key issue for the University to manage. The University is working hard to ensure it supports sustainable travel options through its Travel Plan, including subsidised Uno buses and a Park and Ride facility. Limited car parking is available at Waterside Student Village with strict criteria to manage the supply and demand. To see if you qualify for a termly permit, please visit the travel and parking page. Where successful, parking for Waterside Student Village only is charged at £100 per term and you’ll only be able to access Car Park 3, Waterside. We also run a liftshare database allowing you to find or offer lifts with fellow students.

The residences are located on the main Waterside teaching campus.


Don’t worry about bringing all your basic kitchen appliances; you will have the use of the toasters and microwaves that will be provided for you. Remember to bring your own cutlery, pans, pots and bedding.

Cleaning and Laundry

Our Student Village comes with on-site tumble driers and washing machines to get your clothes clean.

A cleaning service is provided for you to help maintain the main corridors and stairwells during term time. You will be responsible for keeping your bedroom, bathroom/s and kitchen communal area tidy and clean.

Internet access

All of the bedrooms in our halls have WiFi and the facility to connect to the university’s ResNET. Network access is free for all residents.
