Any student studying full-time can apply for accommodation and priority is given to students applying to study a land-based, Higher Education or specialist course, or living outside of a 30 mile radius of the University Centre.

Some of our students chose to ‘live out’, sharing accommodation with friends and rent privately. For students who wish to live in shared accommodation in one of our local towns or villages, or rent a room in a private house, our accommodation office collates a list of suitable properties.

These are not managed by the University Centre and students are responsible for agreeing suitable terms with landlords. For more information and advice, please speak to Student Support on 01278 655126 or 01278 441233, or email
