Living Together

We want to create a homely and welcoming environment to ensure our students quickly feel comfortable living together.

We have approximately 380 students living on-campus in eight boarding houses integrated into our wider campus which will be your home from home for your two years of study.

Student accommodation centres around dormitory-style bedrooms each sleeping four students. Although each boarding house is different, they have common factors with dorms, shared communal spaces and rooms for study and socialising.

Each student house has two house mentors living onsite who will build a close relationship with the students. Students also have tutors, teachers and support from the Wellbeing Team, based in The Learning Centres (TLC) and the Health Centre, who are available to support our students at all times.

Discover the details of student living including boarding house spaces, curfews, money, visitors and activities in our Student Handbook below.
