Home sweet home 

You’ve got plenty to think about when you arrive without worrying where you’re going to live. So we make a huge effort to get our first year students settled quickly.

Aub _accom 02Just as you’re not all studying the same course, we know our students like different styles of places to live. We offer a mix of halls, or shared and rented housing for students to choose from. The best way to decide is to come to one of our accommodation days.

Halls are popular with first year students. All our BH halls offer something unique – the bustle of the town centre, the convenience of a bed on campus, or the quiet of a less studenty area.

If you’re not sure about halls, our housing service can put you in touch with a wide range of rental properties from reputable landlords.

But don’t hang around. Demand for rooms is high, so it pays to choose your living space as soon as you win your place.
