We are the first port of call for students who may have queries, challenges or problems during their time in the Institute.

Housing services

The Students’ Union keep a fully up-to-date listing of all type of accommodation including apartment complexes, private houses and family digs. Choose from purpose-built student-apartment blocks; a traditional house in the private sector; or a house-share. Maybe you’ll opt for “digs” — living as part of a local family who provide your main meals — to smooth the transition from home-life to full independent living. Families offering digs are also coordinated through the SU.

You can choose to work quietly on your own at a study desk, individually at a PC, sit in a comfortable chair and read, or work with a group of students in one of our study rooms in the main campus library.
