We offer different accommodation options to suit all students. Some options are catered, which means your meals are provided at a discounted cost in the halls canteen, and others are self-catered, meaning you cook for yourself. You should consider this when submitting your accommodation preferences when you apply for your student halls.
If you choose to live in a catered hall you can enjoy a choice of delicious international food in the halls canteen. The menu changes every week, and you can see it in advance online.
If you choose a self-catered hall you’ll have access to the halls kitchen and will be given information and resources on nutrition and cooking during the induction week.
Every hall also has a fridge and microwave for snacks and drinks.

If you are booking your own accommodation privately it is important that you let us know where you are staying.
Scammers may specifically target international students so it is important to be able to recognise common signs of fraudulent activity and know what to do if you come across it. Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any concerns about fraudulent activity when dealing with a private accommodation provider so that we can help to protect you and other international students in case they are targeted in the same way.
