Living with other students is a brilliant way to make new friends from day one, and you'll find the perfect environment to do so at each of our five excellent student accommodation centres, all located within 1.5 miles of the city centre.

All of our accommodation is self-catered, with fully equipped kitchens and on-site laundry facilities.

ICT services

We understand the importance of having a reliable and fast internet connection, and so we upgraded our wifi in 2015 to a guaranteed 35Mbps per student, with unlimited downloads and uploads as standard.
