When you come to study with us, you can choose to live in halls of residence or privately-owned housing. We have a selection of accommodation available on the new Waterside Campus, in the Town Centre, at the Avenue site and in the Student Village on Boughton Green Road. We offer single and twin rooms with shared bathrooms or en-suites. All halls are self-catered, with a cleaning service during term time for communal areas. The rooms are all equipped with network access and WiFi, as well as 24-hour security and a dedicated support team.

Find out more information about the accommodation that will be available at Waterside.

Fees

Accommodation fees vary depending on the hall and room type, but all heating, lighting and water costs are included, as well as personal possessions insurance cover from Endsleigh Insurance. You will have to pay a £300 refundable deposit within seven days of receiving your room offer, which is usually in the March before you are due to start your course. It’s a good idea to plan ahead for this.

Prices quoted are for the academic year 2018/19 and are per person, for a period of 42 weeks.
