Premium self-catering halls accommodation may also be available at a higher cost.

Please let us know if you are interested, and we will enquire for you. In all cases, rooms will be allocated according to availability.

Please note: In all halls of residence, you provide your own cooking equipment and do your own cleaning.

How to book

Please indicate on your application form if you would like halls accommodation. 

Further information

Standard pre-sessional English course accommodation is available from the Sunday before the start of your course until the Saturday after the course finishes. Please note that students may be required to move rooms a number of weeks after their course starts.  

If you would like University accommodation before the start of the course, there may be rooms available for an extra cost. Please contact the Course Administrator for prices and booking as soon as possible. Advice on finding private or bed and breakfast accommodation is also available.

Main course accommodation

If you require halls of residence accommodation for the academic year, you must apply for this separately. You can do this as soon as you have accepted a conditional offer for your main course.
